Today's announcement that "The Big Bang Theory" will end in 2019 makes official what a lot of people in the TV business have been speculating about. The prospect of the show's future came up at the recent Television Critics Association 2018 summer press tour. Kelly Kahl, head of CBS Entertainment, told reporters that the network was in "preliminary discussions to renew the show with Warner Bros." But Kahl was overly optimistic, it turned out. "The Big Bang Theory" will begin its twelfth and final season on Sept. 24, and will end in 2019, as what the Warner Bros. Television release says is "the longest-running multi-camera comedy series in TV history." It's hardly surprising that CBS would want to keep "The Big Bang Theory" around, since the sitcom about big-brained science nerds has been a hit from the start, and ranks as TV's top-rated comedy. The press release notes that when "The Big Bang Theory" ends, it will have chalked up 279 episodes. A joint statement from Warner Bros. … [Read more...] about ‘The Big Bang Theory’ will end in 2019: Too soon, or about time?

‘He’s Too Important For The University To Fire Him Now,’ Say Execs NEW YORK—As part of a preview of the network’s fall slate of shows, CBS revealed Monday that season 12 of the long-running sitcom The Big Bang Theory will explore why Sheldon Cooper keeps his job after sexually harassing six research assistants. “The story arc, which spans the entire season, shows that while there might be some credibility to the accusations, he’s far too important for the university to fire him now,” said Thom Sherman, the network’s senior executive vice president of programming, explaining that the September 24 season premiere, “The Accusation Attenuation,” featured six graduate students and several corroborating witnesses reporting Cooper for sexual harassment during his tenure as a theoretical physicist, the university’s investigation into the matter, and its ultimate dismissal of the charges. “As the season progresses, … [Read more...] about CBS Reveals ‘Big Bang Theory’ Season 12 Will Explore Why Sheldon Keeps Job After Sexually Harassing 6 Research Assistants
The first time Guillermo Alonso acted was during high school in El Paso, Texas. He and his then-girlfriend signed up for drama class to fill a gap in their schedules. Alonso, a 2018 MFA Acting alumnus, signed with major Los Angeles-based talent agency Innovative Artists this spring with help from 2006 MFA alumnus Kunal Nayyar, who plays astrophysicist Raj Koothrappali on the CBS sitcom “The Big Bang Theory.” The agency also represents Nayyar. Nayyar and his wife Neha Kapur recently donated $300,000 to the university’s Department of Theater. The donation is one of the largest gifts to the department and one of many contributions Nayyar has made to Temple. “I would not have been able to afford to go to grad school if it wasn’t for the generosity of others who had already given back to the school to enable me to have a scholarship,” Nayyar told the university in an interview. “If it wasn’t for that help I got, I wouldn’t be where I … [Read more...] about ‘The Big Bang Theory’ star donates to Department of Theater
Tech & Science Physics Astronomy astrophysics Georges Henri Joseph Édouard Lemaître was a priest, physicist and astronomer whose controversial “cosmic egg” theory became the most prominent concept in cosmology—the Big Bang theory. Now, on the scientist’s 124th birthday, Google has honored him with a Doodle. But who is Georges Lemaître and what were his most important ideas? Lemaître was born in Charleroi, Belgium, in 1894. His original career as a civil engineer was interrupted by World War I and the future astrophysicist ended up serving in the Belgian army. When the war ended, Lemaître switched to math and physics, before joining the Catholic priesthood in 1923.

Carly Mallenbaum USA TODAY Published 12:23 p.m. UTC Jul 13, 2018 The Emmy Awards are still two months away, but already the ceremony has suffered an embarrassing faux pas: They forgot to include a nominee. Late Thursday, the Television Academy confirmed that the "Big Bang Theory" was inadvertently omitted from the best directing in a comedy series category. The episode is "The Bow Tie Symmetry," about Amy and Sheldon's wedding, is directed by Mark Cendrowski. Oops! It's just the latest fail for a major award ceremony. Here are some other mistakes we've seen during nomination and winner announcements in recent years. The Oscar went to the wrong film. This goes down as the biggest awards flub ever. At the 2017 Academy Awards Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway presented the Best Picture envelope to "La La Land," the filmmakers began to accept the award, and then realized that the honor was meant to go to "Moonlight." The wrong Miss Universe was crowned. In December … [Read more...] about Emmy Awards fail: ‘Big Bang Theory’ nomination ‘inadvertently left off’ list
