It all started with a big bang.
Can you believe it has been over seven years since we first met Penny (Kaley Cuoco), the stunningly attractive blonde who moved across the hall from physicists Leonard Hofstadter and Sheldon Cooper in The Big Bang Theory’s first episode.
Originally from Omaha, Nebraska, Penny (surname still unknown) moved to California to pursue her dreams of becoming an actress, working at the Cheesecake Factory waiting for her Hollywood career to take off. However she soon realised that this was a lot harder than she first thought and Michael Bay or Steven Spielberg haven’t come calling for her just yet.
Her relationship with Johnny Galecki’s Leonard is one of the main themes throughout the show but it’s really the relationship between the unlikely sevensome of Penny, Leonard, Sheldon, Raj, Howard, Amy and Bernadette that has turned The Big Bang Theory »

Penny (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting) will meet the other woman in the life of Leonard (Johnny Galecki) when “The Big Bang Theory” returns. Plus, Fox’s “Urban Cowboy” has been found, and a “True Blood” alum is heading over to Starling City in today’s casting roundup.
Melissa Tang may ruffle some honeymoon feathers on “The Big Bang Theory,” as she’s been cast as Mandy, the woman Leonard kissed on that North Sea expedition, much to Penny’s dismay, TVLine reports. Tang — who is no stranger to Chuck Lorre land with a recurring gig on “Mom,” and also having appeared on one episode of “How I Met Your Mother” — will first appear in episode two of Season 9.
Before Mandy (Tang) comes into the picture, “Big Bang” picks up on Sept. 21 a few hours after where Season 8 left off with Penny and Leonard heading to Sin City to make their relationship official. »

On the CBS laffer, this two-time Tony champ plays Dr. Beverly Hofstadter, Leonard's (Johnny Galecki) psychiatrist mother who has never been too keen on showering her son with affection.

Tradition dictates that Ed Helms be recast as Rusty Griswold should Warner Bros. move ahead with another Vacation movie. The charcter was played by Anthony Michael Hall in National Lampoon’s Vacation, Jason Lively in European Vacation, Johnny Galecki in Christmas Vacation, and Ethan Embry in Vegas Vacation. There was even a Vacation short film called Hotel Hell that featured Travis Greer as Clark’s son. If this does in deed happen, however, Helms wouldn’t be too happy. Yahoo Movies caught up with the actor while he was out promoting the latest Vacation to ask him some questions posed by fans on social media. One Twitter user, Kevin Crossman, asked Helms if he’d be sad for any potential recasting. Helms replied: If there’s another Vacation movie and there’s another Rusty, I will understand… »
Television’s biggest comedy, The Big Bang Theory, returned to Comic-Con today with another hilarious panel, which had surprise guest Mayim Bialik (Amy) and Kunal Nayyar (Raj) in attendance, reports The Hollywood Reporter.
Set to start its ninth season in the fall, the show ended Season 8 with a few big cliffhangers, including Amy and Sheldon’s (Jim Parsons) break-up and Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Penny (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting) heading off to Las Vegas to get married. Of course, many of the fans at the panel has their questions ready for creator Chuck Lorre and series showrunner Steven Molaro. And while the panel were noticeable mum on many things, they did say that many of the question marks left by the final episode of last season would be settled in episode 1 of the new season.
In addition, the show is about to go ghostbusting, with Chuck Lorre revealing that there’s been »

It should come as no surprise that critically-acclaimed series such as "The Americans" and "Silicon Valley" took home top prizes at the fifth annual Critics' Choice TV Awards on Sunday night (it's right there in the name of the event, after all). But there was plenty of love for popular shows, too, proving that quality programming is becoming more widely available and amenable to audiences during this so-called golden age of television.
"The Americans" and "Silicon Valley" each claimed high honors in the best drama and comedy series categories, respectively, and their home networks were the biggest winners of the night: HBO snagged seven statuettes, while FX collected four. "Silicon Valley" was among the shows that won multiple awards, with T.J. Miller taking home the trophy for best supporting actor in a comedy.
Freshman series "Better Call Saul" and "Transparent" also walked away with two trophies apiece, while new sensation »

The 5th annual Critics’ Choice TV Awards took place Sunday at the Beverly Hilton hotel and aired live on A&E. “So You Think You Can Dance” host Cat Deeley emceed the proceedings — and also found time to accept the prize for best reality host midway through the show. Despite playfully jabbing rival host Tom Bergeron during her intro by joking she’d purposefully gotten him relegated to one of the back tables in the ballroom, she was spotted warmly embracing the “Dancing with the Stars” mainstay during the ad break.
The first prize of the night went to “Better Call Saul’s” Jonathan Banks for best supporting actor in a drama, and the thesp also had the dubious honor of earning the ceremony’s first (but far from the last) bleep during his acceptance speech. The “Breaking Bad” spinoff later won a second award for Bob Odenkirk’s lead »

Proving a good education is no laughing matter, CBS comedy “The Big Bang Theory” and series co-creator and exec producer Chuck Lorre’s family foundation have announced the establishment of the “The Big Bang Theory” Scholarship Endowment at UCLA.
The fund — the first-ever UCLA scholarship created by, and named for, a television series — will support undergraduate students in need of financial aid who are pursuing their higher education in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (Stem) at UCLA. It has raised over $4 million to date, thanks to an initial donation from the Chuck Lorre Family Foundation as well as gifts from the likes of series stars Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar, Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch, executive producers Bill Prady and Steven Molaro, and partners such as Warner Bros. Television and CBS.

Today, we’re pleased to bring you an exclusive look at The Master Cleanse poster. The film is “the story of a group of people who attend a spiritual cleansing retreat, only to discover that the cleanse releases more than everyday toxins and traumatic experiences...” The press release describes the picture as a dark comedy, and I think that’s the way to make this premise work. Cleanses are a joke that don’t work and come with serious side effects. May as well make a monster a side effect. Check out the poster below, which was designed by Phantom City Creative’s Justin Erickson (hopefully, companies will continue the trend of hiring artists to do posters). Bobby Miller’s feature directing debut is currently in post-production, and stars Johnny Galecki, Anna Friel, Oliver Platt, Anjelica Houston, and Kyle Gallner. Xyz Films is currently shopping the film around Cannes. For more on the film: letsgetpure. »

“The Big Bang Theory” has consistently bucked trends, including the one that would suggest a comedy in its eighth season might begin to grow tired and stale. Instead, the show has kept clicking on all cylinders, moving the characters forward while continuing to revel in scientific jargon and sly pop-culture savvy. That said, there’s a reason why the writers have kept the various romantic relationships from advancing too rapidly – presumably some of them watched “Friends” – which perhaps explains why the season finale (and Spoiler Alert if you haven’t watched) essentially just kicked more than one can down the road.
The episode opened with Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and his long-suffering girlfriend Amy (Mayim Bialik) grappling with their very different ideas about commitment: She wants to talk about what it means that they’ve been “together,” such as it is, for five years, while he wants to talk about whether »
