Warning: Code Milky Green! Sheldon has caught the flu, and that means everyone suffers. It's bad enough that the man is a hypochondriac, but add in a real illness and he's a terror. Take into account that he's a man-child who can't do much for himself, and it's a recipe for hilarious disaster.
Penny has just returned from a trip back home to Nebraska, and she's stopped in to see Leonard and Sheldon, who have collected her mail for the duration of her trip. When she informs them that the visit was horrible on account of family members getting sick, Sheldon goes into a full panic, taking notes on when they were sick, what the symptoms were, and starts attacking the apartment with Lysol. That night Leonard wakes up to find Sheldon in the kitchen making petri dishes with lime Jell-o (because "someone finished »
Being in the MTV Movie Awards audience is a powerful thing. When the crowd yelled “Take it off!” as Zac Efron accepted Best Shirtless Performance, for instance, Rita Ora actually heard that call to arms and did the people’s bidding. She didn’t want an angry mob on her hands, after all.
But Zac Efron’s abs weren’t the only perk of sitting in the Nokia Theatre crowd Sunday night. Check out all our observations from inside the arena below:
The performances are probably best viewed from your couch. With the big screens turned off during all musical performances, »

by Brett Denney As in the past, Sheldon’s enthusiasm does not equal to that of his friends at the exciting news of one of the biggest scientific breakthroughs of their lifetime this week on The Big Bang Theory.

Thursday evening’s TV ratings are in. Here’s a brief look at the highlights: Last night’s episode of Community, quite possibly one of the strangest yet (and that’s saying something), fell a tenth from last week’s numbers to a 0.8 rating in the 18-49 demo and scored 2.62 million viewers. That marks a new series low for the NBC sitcom. On the flipside, CBS’ The Big Bang Theory hit a “low” with a 4.6 rating and 15.99 million viewers, which is a dip of three tenths from last week’s 4.9 rating. That’s a season low for the ratings juggernaut, though it still stood head and shoulders above everything else on Thursday night. Hit the jump for the rest of the TV ratings report for Thursday, April 10th, including Parks and Recreation, The Millers, Scandal, Parenthood, Reign, and more.

CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory” and ABC’s “Scandal” remained the hottest shows on Thursday this week, ranking as the top draws among young adults as the nets tied for the demo lead. ABC helped its cause by airing a special “Shark Tank” leading off the night.
According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, “The Big Bang Theory” (4.6 rating/7 share in adults 18-49, 16.0 million viewers overall) was easily Thursday’s top program in all key categories, dipping from last week’s return after a break for college basketball. “The Millers” fell off from there (2.6/9 in 18-49, 10.2 million viewers overall) but led its timeslot as well, and “Two and a Half Men” (2.4/8 in 18-49, 9.6 million viewers overall) was down slightly from last week and ranked first or second in its timeslot in all categories.
“The Crazy Ones” was the only CBS comedy to hold at last week’s demo level (and »

The Big Bang Theory won Thursday night, but clocked a new season low of a 4.6 rating with adults 18-49 -- down three-tenths of a point from last week. The Millers (2.6 adults) and Two and a Half Men (2.4 adults) dropped a respective two- and one-tenth of a point. And after a steady Crazy Ones (1.7 adults), Elementary (1.7 adults) improved two-tenths from the week prior. For the night, CBS tied ABC in the key demo, each averaging a 2.4 rating among adults 18-49, though CBS topped with total

Like last week’s announcement that David Letterman was retiring in 2015, yesterday’s news that Stephen Colbert would take over CBS’ Late Show overshadowed Thursday’s primetime as the big action on TV. But that didn’t mean there was a lot going on last night. With its penultimate episode before next week’s Season 3 finale, Scandal (3.0/9) not unexpectedly ramped it up with more tension and potentially explosive outcomes. The Shonda Rhimes-produced drama also bopped up 3% among adults 18-49 compared with last week’s season low. Lead-in Grey’s Anatomy (2.5/8) dipped 7% from its April 3 episode. With Once Upon A Time In Wonderland wrapped up for good last week, ABC kicked off its Thursday primetime with a special Shark Tank (1.6/6). The first of a two-nighter, the entrepreneurial reality series was down 20% from its last regular Friday airing on April 4 but gave ABC a six-month high in adults 18-49 for the 8 Pm slot. »

I don’t like to brag, but over the weekend, I deflowered three virgins.
Oh, who am I kidding? I love to brag.
Lest you think my sex life is more interesting than it actually is, I mean the above statement metaphorically. As you know if your’e female, breaking in virgins isn’t really that entertaining. Instead, what I will now describe is how I took three friends to their first comic book convention.
Lucky for them, it was MoCCA.
Going to your first anything can be intimidating, even something as simple as a county fair or a school dance. Every event that has occurred more than once has a history. Often, there are traditions and customs with which you are unfamiliar. The way the media portrays comic book conventions, whether on Entourage or The Big Bang Theory or next year’s talk show wars, can be unnerving for newbies. »

Review Juliette Harrisson 11 Apr 2014 - 10:45
Here's Juliette's review of the latest episode of The Big Bang Theory...
This review contains spoilers.
7.20 The Relationship Diremption
The Big Bang Theory splits itself down the middle in its latest episode with two more or less equally weighted stories, one focusing on Sheldon, the other focusing on Howard.
Technically the A-story (the story referenced in the title) is Sheldon’s and, typically, Leonard, Penny and Amy are essentially reduced to supporting players in Sheldon’s story. Sheldon has what is essentially a mid-life crisis when Kripke asserts that string theory, which both have dedicated their careers to proving, is in fact unprovable. Kripke isn’t bothered by this at all, for he is, as he puts it, a ‘string pragmatist’ and is quite happy to take the funding and run with it. However, Sheldon has genuinely dedicated the past twenty years of his »

TNT has greenlit 10 episodes for a series based on The Librarians franchise, slated to air in late 2014. The TV movies told the story of a group of extra special librarians who live beneath the Metropolitan Public Library in New York and safeguard mystical relics from forces of evil by slapping them with outrageous overdue fees. The plot is a messy stew of Indiana Jones, National Treasure, and Hell Boy …but the product is less than the sum of its parts.

Ever wonder what's inside an actress' stylish, but small purse, when she hits the red carpet? Well, thanks to Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting's latest see-through clutch choice, we have an idea about the important essentials necessary to make it through one of these types of evenings. The 28-year-old attended the premiere of her latest film Authors Anonymous with her sister Briana on Wednesday in Los Angeles. Cuoco-Sweeting donned a cream collared top with blue and white patterned shorts, which perfectly accentuated her toned gams. The Big Bang Theory star wore powder blue strappy heels and toted said clutch, which featured blue and white sparkling detail. So, what is Cuoco-Sweeting carrying »
In the latest edition of “How many shows can Donal Logue appear in?” the busy actor will have a recurring role on Law & Order: Svu as the new Unit boss. He’ll be recurring for the rest of the season.
TV Land is reviving Candid Camera for a 10-episode summer run. Peter Funt, son of original Candid Camera host Allen Funt will host the new version which promises to be “daring but respectful”. I hope that means it’ll aim higher than the last reality TV-style revival of Candid Camera. Also, please bring back the theme song from the 70′s version of the series.

After nearly a decade-long break from feature film directing, Scrubs star Zach Braff is making a comeback this year with Wish I Was Here, a comedy drama and spiritual sequel to Garden State about a thirty-something struggling actor who finds himself in desperate financial straits and is forced to home school his two children.
The first teaser trailer for Wish I Was Here has now been released, and its not shy about echoing Garden State‘s tone or soundtrack. The Shins are back, serenading the mostly dialogue-free trailer with “Simple Song,” and Braff is joined in the cast by Kate Hudson, Joey King and The Big Bang Theory‘s Jim Parsons (who also made a memorable short appearance in Garden State).
Wish I Was Here caused quite a stir even before it began production, as Braff ...
