Show Summary

Created by writer/producers Chuck Lorre (of Two and a Half Men) and Bill Prady (of Gilmore Girls) comes The Big Bang Theory, a sitcom that shows what happens when hyper-intelligent roommates/physicists Sheldon and Leonard meet Penny, a beautiful woman moving in next door--and realize they know next to nothing about life outside of the lab. Rounding out the crew are Howard Wolowitz, who thinks he's as sexy as he is brainy, and Rajesh (Raj) Koothrappali, who suffers from an inability to speak in the presence of a woman. The show distinguishes itself by being unafraid to toss scientific references and technobabble into an otherwise standard sitcom, even employing a physicist to keep things accurate. In doing so, it allows Sheldon and Leonard to do for science what Frasier's Crane brothers did for fine dining, art, and opera. Theme Song: "The History of Everything" by Barenaked Ladies. The series won 10 Emmy Awards for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series - Jim Parsons, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series - Jim Parsons, Outstanding Technical Direction, Camerawork, Video Control for a Series - The Higgs Boson Observation, Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series - Bob Newhart: The Proton Resurgence, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series - Jim Parsons, Outstanding Multi-Camera Picture Editing for a Comedy Series - The Cooper Extraction, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series - Jim Parsons, Outstanding Multi-Camera Picture Editing for a Comedy Series - The Comic Book Store Regeneration, Outstanding Multi-Camera Picture Editing for a Comedy Series - The Opening Night Excitation and Outstanding Multi-Camera Picture Editing for a Comedy Series - The Holiday Summation.
