Personal Quote:

I work from a deep sense of insecurity. I have the belief, and I can't shake it, that there are endless reasons to turn the channel. There are hundreds of channels and entirely other things to do besides TV. And if you make a bad television show there's no reason for the audience to come back the following week. See more »

Trivia:

The name of his dog is Elmo Lorre, which he has shared with the audience on "the famous" vanity cards at the end of some of Chuck Lorre Productions episodes. See more »
