Failed TV pilots that paved the way for breakout hits

24 February 2015 2:32 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Had these pilots been given the green light, we might have been without Breaking Bad, 24, Hannibal, Community and more…

It’s not all grumble and moan round here when TV networks decline to pick up pilots. Sometimes, we’re even grateful.

Hindsight teaches that every so often, passing on a particular show is the best thing a channel could have done. Not ordering one pilot to series spurs its creators on to start another, and frees up its cast to join new projects.

Had the failures below all thrived, there’s a chance we could now be living in a world with no Breaking Bad, Hannibal, or even South Park. Had these pilots gone on to enjoy healthy, lengthy lives, then Jack Bauer, Oberyn Martell, Chandler Bing and more might all be unrecognisable today.

Here then, are the TV pilots we’re grateful weren’t taken to series because their »

How ‘The Big Bang Theory’ Cast Their Surprising ‘Internet Bully’ (Spoilers)

5 February 2015 8:30 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

(Spoilers ahead: Do not read if you haven’t watched tonight’s episode of “Big Bang Theory.”)

On tonight’s episode of CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory,” Leonard (Johnny Galecki) comes up with a theory that even roommate Sheldon (Jim Parsons) approves of — and the two proudly post it online for the scientific community to weigh in.

The “quantum diaries physics blog” message board quickly fills up with praise, calling it “insightful” and “innovative” — until one critic slams them repeatedly for being “crackpot wannabe theoreticians” and “two clowns with their heads in a bucket.”

Their Internet bully turns out to be none other than past “Big Bang” guest Stephen Hawking, who finally tells the guys he was just pranking them. “If you were sitting in a chair for 40 years, you’d get bored, too,” says Hawking.

Executive producer Steve Molaro says they came up with the idea for getting Hawking »

Why Tonight's Episode of 'The Big Bang Theory' Could Be Our New Favorite!

5 February 2015 9:15 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

We have a theory.

After careful consideration and plenty of small screen experiments, we think that tonight's episode of The Big Bang Theory might just become our new favorite episode of all-time. We're totally serious! In fact, the caliber of laughs reminded us of this iconic moment…

Tonight's half-hour adventure doesn’t have the swoon-factor of Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and Amy's (Mayim Bialik) first "I love you," the character progression like when Raj (Kunal Nayyar) finally got a girlfriend, or the hilarious group dynamic of Howard's (Simon Helberg) impression-packed Dungeon & Dragons game.

However, "The Troll Manifestation" could eclipse them all for just three simple reasons: 1. It's genuinely laugh-out-loud funny. 2. Each character gets an equal amount of time to shine. 3. It's jam-packed with Big Bang's signature surprises that continue to blow us away.

Watch: What's Next For Your Favorite 'Big Bang' Couples!

12 January 2015 12:36 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Kaley Cuoco is a snorer — there is now video evidence to prove that.
