About THE BIG BANG THEORY: Comedy has expanded to 5 Nights A Week (check www.BigBangWeeknights.com for local listings)! The Big Bang Theory is the story of two brainy best friends who could tell you anything you want to know about quantum physics - but when it comes to dealing with everyday life here on Earth, they're lost in the cosmos. Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Sheldon (Jim Parsons) are brilliant physicists - wizards in the laboratory, but socially inept outside of it. Enter their beautiful, free-spirited neighbor, Penny (Kaley Cuoco), who aims to teach them a thing or two about life. While Leonard spends his days looking for love, Sheldon is quite content playing Star Trek 3D chess with their ever-expanding universe of friends, including fellow Caltech scientists Howard Wolowitz (Simon Helberg), Rajesh Koothrappali (Kunal Nayyar) and more. www.BigBangWeeknights.com

Created by Chuck Lorre (Two and a Half Men) & Bill Prady (Dharma & Greg), who also serve as executive producers along with Steven Molaro (The Class) and Eddie Gorodetsky (Two and a Half Men), The Big Bang Theory stars Emmy(R) and Golden Globe nominee Johnny Galecki (Roseanne), Emmy(R) and Golden Globe winner Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco (Hop), Simon Helberg (Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog), Kunal Nayyar (Ice Age: Continental Drift), Mayim Bialik (Blossom) and Melissa Rauch (True Blood).
