When you’re hosting the MTV Movie Awards and promise viewers “The Biggest One You’ll Ever See,” opening with any old been-there-done-that monologue is no longer an option. Conan O’Brien was acutely aware of that challenge when he opted to attempt the Movie Awards’ boldest coup yet and score 50 celebrity cameos within the first five minutes of the show.
As you’ve now seen, O’Brien managed to pull off the feat. But he didn’t do it alone. Director Troy Miller tells EW how MTV assembled this “whirlwind of a celebrity-fest” (full list at bottom), which included appearances by Taylor Swift, »

Kaley Cuoco Sweeting has a love-hate relationship with what her fans think of her. And while she knows she can't please her detractors, she's hooked on reading their comments on social media. "I started reading [the comments] and thought, maybe I need to make more of an effort and not go out in my UGGs and be disgusting," the Big Bang Theory star, 28, tells Cosmopolitan for its May cover story. "So I started putting on makeup. And they started writing 'Wow, someone really likes being in front of the camera,' and 'Her hair's done now for coffee.' I couldn't do anything right. »

I find it rather amazing how stars of long-running series jump in and out of the main focus of public attention, and The Big Bang Theory itself, and all of its stars are prime examples. Though continuously popular, the show has wandered through its share of moments when it seemed a mighty backlash was hanging around just outside the door, and the stars have gone through highs and lows of general interest as well.
Of course, real world events can shift the focus as much as anything that happens on a show, especially when the show itself, wonderful as it may be, is rather old news.
Thus, Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting graces the cover of Cosmo this month, on newsstands April 8th, and talks about dating, getting married rather suddenly, and breast implants.

When we met, I knew he was the one," she says of her new hubby. "[At my wedding], I felt like a rock star and a badass. What was amazing in that room, it was so full of love. It was like nothing I’d ever been to before, and it was exactly what we wanted it to be. It was the eighth wonder of the world, the greatest wedding of all time.” While »

Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting managed to keep her two-year romance with Johnny Galecki a secret until after they broke up, but her 10-day fling with Man of Steel's Henry Cavill was as high profile as it gets. "I had no one following me until I met Superman," she says of her June-July 2013 romance with Cavill, 30. "I've been in this business for 20 years, and my whole life, I could go anywhere, do anything. There had not been one paparazzi photo of me until like several months ago. The recognition was crazy." Not long after she called it quits with Cavill, the 28-year-old fell for professional tennis player Ryan Sweeting. Shocking their friends and family, they got engaged after three months of dating »

Big Bang besties! Kaley Cuoco covers the May issue of Cosmopolitan, and dishes to the women's mag about her surprise, lightning-fast wedding to tennis hunk Ryan Sweeting -- and how her famous ex and Big Bang Theory costar Johnny Galecki was totally cool with it. Back in September 2010, Cuoco, 28, revealed that she and Galecki, 38, had secretly dated for 2 years before parting amicably. The blonde CBS star admits to Cosmo that the breakup wasn't without some hiccups. "It took a minute, a bit of [...] »
Well, it was pound to happen. I think the second I heard about The Big Bang Theory being in negotiations for renewal I knew there as only one inevitable conclusion. The last time Bbt was up for renewal, CBS made all fans pleased by ensuring the sitcom would be around for three years. Now those three years are almost gone and it only made perfect sense for CBS to make the same deal all over again. That’s right, folks, Bbt will be back for another three seasons, guaranteeing the series will be around until 2017. And for those of us who are marginally apathetic about the series: yay?
CBS managed to make the new deal with Warner Bros. Television with a licensing fee of, according to Deadline, $4 million-$5 million per episode, which is a strikingly high number for a comedy. But, as we all know, Bbt is TVs highest rated sitcom, »

Some geeks like them, some geeks loathe them, but they are not going anywhere: the hit TV show The Big Bang Theory has been picked up by CBS for another three seasons, with several other Chuck Lorre series waiting in the wings for negotiations.
In an unsurprising turn of events, CBS renewed The Big Bang Theory for three years, almost entirely without controversy. The series has been one of the most consistent money-makers for CBS, garnering consistent ratings and year-to-year gains over its past seven seasons. While the series has received some criticism from various communities, particularly in regards to its over-simplistic representation of geek/nerd culture, it continues to maintain favor over a widespread demographic.
The next step for The Big Bang Theory negotiations is to complete salary talks with the show’s leads, particularly Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, and Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting. The three are expected to eventually hit »

Fans of The Big Bang Theory rejoice! The hit U.S. sitcom has been renewed for a further three seasons by CBS, meaning that the show will air at least until 2017, at which point it will have reached its tenth season.
The series is currently in its seventh season, and has been pulling in record viewers for CBS, while stars Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar are currently in negotiations about extending their contracts with what will surely be wallet-bursting deals for Warner Bros. Television.
"Comedy is a big part of our schedule, and The Big Bang Theory is the biggest comedy force on television," said CBS Entertainment chairman Nina Tassler. "This multi-year deal further strengthens our network’s position for future seasons and marks another chapter in the great partnership CBS enjoys with Warner Bros. Television for delivering audiences the best in comedy. We »

CBS has made a huge commitment to "The Big Bang Theory," giving it a huge three-season renewal. The pickup runs through the show's 10th season in 2016-17.
Given its status as the runaway top-rated comedy on TV, a renewal for next season was never in doubt. A three-season renewal, however, is pretty unusual for almost any show -- except "Big Bang," which is at the tail end of a three-season deal CBS gave the show in 2011.
"This multiyear deal further strengthens our network's position for future seasons and marks another chapter in the great partnership CBS enjoys with Warner Bros. Television for delivering audiences the best in comedy," CBS Entertainment chairman Nina Tassler says. "We're proud to work with and showcase the incredible talents of [executive producers] Chuck Lorre, Steve Molaro and this amazing cast every week."
So far this season, "The Big Bang Theory" is averaging 19.8 million viewers, third-best on the »
The Big Bang Theory was canceled… Bazinga! In actuality, CBS announced Wednesday that the smash sitcom has been renewed for not just one, but three more seasons. If our calculations are correct, this means that geeky comedy will reach a total of ten seasons in the 2016-2017 television year before any further negotiations are needed. It's time to through a [insert your favorite nerdy thing here] themed party! The Big Bang Theory continues to be a weekly hit for CBS, snagging its highest ratings to date in its current seventh season—a feat that is typically unheard of in today's post-Friends world. On average Leonard (Johnny Galecki), Penny (Kaley Cuoco) and the others bring in 19.779 »

The Big Bang Theory, currently in its seventh season, has been renewed by CBS for at least three more years.
'Big Bang Theory' Renewed
It’s no surprise that CBS would make a move to secure The Big Bang Theory through to the 2016-17 season, as the sitcom has held the top sitcom spot among viewers since their 2010-2011 season. In fact, Tbbt’s viewership increased 4% last season, averaging 19.79 million viewers. It holds a 7.8 rating among adults ages 25-54 and a 6.1 rating among adults ages 18-49.
“Comedy is a big part of our schedule, and The Big Bang Theory is the biggest comedy force on television,” said CBS Entertainment Chairman Nina Tassler in a statement. “This multi-year deal further strengthens our network’s position for future seasons and marks another chapter in the great partnership CBS enjoys with Warner Bros. Television for delivering audiences the best in comedy. “
From episode to episode, a lot of chatter surrounding "The Big Bang Theory" this season -- the show's seventh -- has been focused on the emotional journey of Jim Parsons' Sheldon Cooper, as the show has been quite remarkably intent on challenging the character to grow and mature. The attention the storyline is receiving is entirely justified, as it's rare for a show like this to allow its central character to continue to evolve this late in its run.
But in all that, another surprising emotional journey has gotten a bit overlooked. I'm talking, of course, about Penny (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting). This season has seen the aspiring actress take stock of her professional situation, go for broke by quitting her job as a waitress and devote all of her time and energy on landing that breakthrough role.
In Thursday's (March 6) episode, reality has begun to sink in for Penny. Having »
In Thursday's (Feb. 27) episode of the CBS comedy, something as innocuous as purchasing a dining room table for the apartment so everyone can stop eating their meals off their laps proves too much for the touchy nerd to handle.
The set-up is quite simple: Group dinners are growing uncomfortable, what with the limited space and all. A change is suggested: Buy a table to fit perfectly into that cluttered space in the apartment no one ever uses. The problem: Sheldon doesn't like change.
Except, what Sheldon's failed to realize is that he's been slowly changing all along. As Leonard (Johnny Galecki) points out when his roommate blames Penny (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting) for changing Leonard enough that he defied Sheldon and bought the table anyway, Sheldon's slowly »
Sheldon Cooper is one of the most interesting and hilariously dysfunctional characters on television today. While he has an above genius Iq level, he can be immensely stupid. His greatest flaw, although he would say otherwise, is hubris, and that flaw causes him to continuously put himself in situations that are difficult or at times life-threatening. His need to constantly be the smartest person in the room is always his undoing, and we meet someone who finally forces him to live with the consequences of his actions.
Our quartet of scientists are attending a department function to welcome the new head of the Physics department, Dr. Eric Gablehauser (Mark Harelik - Jurassic Park III), and before it even begins, Sheldon is complaining to Leonard how much he hates these events. Furthermore, he reveals how little regard he has for Gablehauser, who has written several books on the subject of physics »
