Prolific producer Chuck Lorre was prepared for the best possible outcome at last Sunday's Primetime Emmy Awards.
The co-creator/executive producer behind The Big Bang Theory used the show's season seven premiere to release the acceptance speech he would have given had the series about a group of lovable nerds won its first best comedy Emmy.
Following a sixth season that saw CBS' nerdy comedy The Big Bang Theory reach a creative milestone when Kunal Nayyar's Raj overcame his selective muteness, TV's top scripted comedy among adults 18-49 returns for its seventh year Thursday with back-to-back episodes.
All of the Emmy statuettes have been given out, with Breaking Bad and Modern Family winning best drama and comedy series honors. HBO raked in the most awards (27), with stars Jeff Daniels (The Newsroom) and Bobby Cannavale (Boardwalk Empire) scoring upset wins in the lead and supporting actor drama categories. The premium network's Behind the Candelabra also led all shows with its 11 trophies, including a best actor in a movie or miniseries win for star Michael Douglas.
The stars of television's No. 1 scripted comedy are looking to cash in.
The Big Bang Theory leads Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco are seeking sizable pay increases, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The moves come after co-stars Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch recently inked new deals with studio Warner Bros. Television to guarantee their long-term presence on the series, securing raises in the process.
After starting their marriage separated by space, Howard and Bernadette had a happy first year as newlyweds on the recently concluded sixth season of CBS' The Big Bang Theory.
After Bernadette's (Melissa Rauch) "Rocket Man" returned home to Earth, the couple navigated a crop of thorny issues including where to live, children and a long-lost letter from Howard's (Simon Helberg) father.
Not much is known about the upcoming seventh season of CBS' The Big Bang Theory.
Yes, Leonard will be on a boat during his expedition for Stephen Hawking, leaving Penny and Sheldon to support one another in his absence. Raj, now that he's able to talk to women without the assistance of booze, will explore dating. And Amy and Bernadette will spend some time together during a work trip.
The cast and creators of CBS' The Big Bang Theory played host to members of the TV Academy on Thursday during a panel for Emmy voters held on the Burbank soundstage where the Warner Bros. Television comedy is filmed.
CBS' The Big Bang Theory will expand its core circle of friendships to further explore new pairings among the show's central group when season seven of TV's No. 1 comedy returns in the fall.
While Leonard is at sea on an expedition for Stephen Hawking, the friends and neighbors will explore more of their friendship. Penny and Sheldon will be thrown together out of necessity, while Amy and Bernadette hit the road together for the first time without their blond "bestie."
CBS' The Big Bang Theory opened San Diego Comic-Con on Friday in Ballroom 20 -- a downgrade from last year's appearance in the cavernous Hall H -- for what started as a cast-free peek behind the scenes of TV's No. 1 comedy.
