Christine Baranski, The Big Bang TheoryLeonard better be on his best behavior in 'The Big Bang Theory' season premiere because mama is back in town!

CBS announced 'The Good Wife' star Christine Baranski will be reprising her role for the first episode of Season 5.

Baranski, who currently stars as legal eagle Diane Lockhart on CBS's hit drama 'The Good Wife,' plays Dr. Beverly Hofstadter, Leonard's overly analytical mother on 'Big Bang Theory.'

The actress, who is currently nominated for an Emmy for her work on 'The Good Wife,' has received two nominations for her guest work on 'BBT.'

We wonder how Sheldon will react to the good doctor's return ...

'The Big Bang Theory' Season 5 premieres Sept. 22 at 8:30PM ET.

I love the Big Bang Theory, but it would be nice if Pria was gone. She's not funny at all.

BBT is one of the best comedy shows on TV today. Christine Baranski as Leonard's mother is priceless. She has always been a favorite actress of mine. I remember her from Cybil Shepard's show. She stole the show away from Cybil. I hope BBT continues for many seasons to come. The writing is the best.

BBT is one of the truly good comedies left. I'm glad they're moving ahead with this wonderful show.

Christine Baranski is a great actress. She is a scene stealer. Even when she has small rolls in movies she stands out. i.e. The Bird Cage, Chicago

Happy to hear Christine is returning to the BBT show. She's an accomplished dramatic actress, but I really
love her when she does comedy! Look forward to the return of this show. I do enjoy especially after a long,
tiring day at work.
