About The Big Bang Theory
With six seasons under their belt, the cast of the CBS sitcom “The Big Bang Theory” are riding high as network TV’s highest-rated comedy. A Thursday night fixture, the series involving a group of physics geeks continues to evolve, both in character development and storylines.

The brainchild of executive producers Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady, the series debuted in September, 2007, initially airing on Monday nights. Despite the relatively unorthodox premise for a sitcom, the program received excellent ratings almost from the start. By the third season (2009-2010), the series took over the evening’s top spot in the coveted 18-49 demographic, and following a move to Thursday night the next season (2010-2011), the series became the No. 1 network TV comedy, a spot it has retained ever since.

“The Big Bang Theory” revolves around two roommates, Sheldon Cooper (portrayed by Jim Parsons) and Leonard Hofstader (Johnny Galecki) who are both employed at the California Institute of Technology (Cal Tech) in Pasadena; Cooper as a theoretical physicist, Hofstader as an experimental physicist. Their two closest friends are also employed at Cal Tech, aerospace engineer Howard Wolowitz (Simon Helberg) and particle astrophysicist Rajesh Koothrappali (Kunal Nayyar). Sheldon and Leonard’s apartment is the primary setting for the series, where the four friends regularly pursue their “geekish” pasttimes such as watching classic sci-fi movies and TV series, playing video games and gathering for meals, almost always “take-out” Thai or Chinese. Across the hall resides Penny (Kaley Cuoco), an aspiring actress who works at a local restaurant, “The Cheesecake Factory,” and has had an on-again, off-again relationship with Leonard. Penny’s character, less-educated but street-wise and owning a heart of gold, contrasts perfectly with the highly-educated, socially inept foursome, providing much of the program’s often unintended humor.

Recurring characters include Bernadette Rostenkowski (Melissa Rauch), a micro-biologist (who married Wolowitz in Season 5), Amy Farrah Fowler (Mayim Bialik), a neuro-biologist and Sheldon Cooper’s “girlfriend,” Stuart Bloom (Todd Sussman), owner of the comic-book store the group frequents, Leslie Winkle (Sara Gilbert), an experimental physicist who has had relationships with both Leonard and Howard and is Sheldon’s arch-nemesis, Mary Cooper (Laurie Metcalf), Sheldon’s sharp-as-a-tack devout Fundamentalist Christian mother, Barry Kripke (John Ross Bowie), a speech-impaired plasma physicist, Priya Koothrappali (Aarti Mann), Rajesh’s attorney sister, Dr. and Mrs. V.M Koothrapalli (Brian George and Alice Amter), Rajesh and Priya’s parents, Will Wheaton (as himself), Mrs. Wolowitz (voiced by Carol Ann Susi), Howard’s stereotypically over-bearing Jewish mother, and Dr. Beverly Hofstader (Christine Baranski), Leonard’s neuro-physicist/psychiatrist mother.

Several noted celebrities have made guest appearances during the program’s six-year stretch, including former astronaut Buzz Aldrin, actor LeVar Burton, actress Summer Glau, physicist/author Stephen Hawking, sci-fi legend Stan Lee, actor Bob Newhart, actors Charlie Sheen, Brent Spiner and George Takei, and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.
