'Wonder Year's' Danica McKellar Is Having A Baby

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 17th 2010 6:00PM
danica_mcKellar_big_bang_theory_cbsWow. Winnie Cooper is going to be a mom. That's right, the kid we watched – some of us in original broadcast episodes and not reruns – is having a baby. 'The Wonder Years'' actress Danica McKellar is pregnant. It's the first child for her and husband Mike Verta.

Danica told People magazine, "I'm nearing the end of my first trimester and I'm so excited – I've been bursting to tell people." The 35-year-old veteran of 'The Wonder Years' -- and brainiac mathematician -- has been working on a new book, her third, called 'Hot X: Algebra Exposed.' It comes out in August if you're ready to pre-order it!

Sheldon Crashes Stan Lee's House on 'The Big Bang Theory' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 2nd 2010 3:20AM
The Big Bang Theory, Stan LeeIt's gotta be a major thrill for Sheldon to hang with Stan Lee on 'The Big Bang Theory' (Mon., 9:30PM ET on CBS). Especially since the last time they were supposed to meet, Sheldon ended up in jail.

Still, dude. Crashing your hero's pad when he's in his pajamas? Thirty lashes with a wet Spider-Man comic book.

Sackhoff to Star in ABC Crime Drama

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 22nd 2010 12:31PM
Katee SackhoffKatee Sackhoff has been a real workhorse on TV shows. God, that sounds terrible, but what I mean is that she has become one of those TV stars you can always count on. She's had a recurring role on many of the big shows of the past five years: 'Battlestar Galactica,' 'Nip/Tuck,' 'Bionic Woman,' and had a rather big guest role on 'Big Bang Theory.' She's currently co-starring on '24' but who knows what's going to happen to her character since she has just signed to headline her own show.

Sackhoff will star in a new pilot for ABC, a crime drama about a detective who teams up with an ex-cop, according to The Hollywood Reporter. They investigate crimes and also try to figure out who drove him off the force. All crime shows now have to have an underlying story, a conspiracy, a myth arc to get people tuning in week after week to see if they solve the bigger mystery.

Wil Wheaton Will Return to 'Big Bang Theory'

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 19th 2010 4:34PM
The Big Bang Theory
It looks like producers of television's geekiest show (after 'Face the Nation,' I mean), 'The Big Bang Theory,' were happy with Wil Wheaton's guest appearance a while back because they have invited him to do the show once again. The show got a big ratings boost when our old friend played Sheldon's enemy on the show earlier this season, which was funny because he was playing himself.

He calls himself "evil Wil Wheaton." He got the official word this morning that the episode is a go and he'll tape it on March 2. If this turns into a semi-regular thing, where he returns to the show every once in a great while to torment Sheldon, they should have a surprise other cast member from 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' to come on and challenge Wheaton or get in the middle of things. I can picture Jonathan Frakes or Brent Spiner doing that.

'Big Bang' Bazinga! Could Sheldon Be Gay?

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 10th 2010 9:00AM
big_bang_theory_jim_parsonsAs his 'Star Trek' hero Mr. Spock might say, this is 'fascinating.' When Chuck Lorre was asked to define Sheldon Cooper's sexual orientation on 'The Big Bang Theory,' his answer wasn't gay. It wasn't straight. Not even asexual or nonsexual or unsexual. Lorre settled on the term 'other,' for Sheldon.

Lorre told Michael Ausiello in Entertainment Weekly that Sheldon's focus is not on the physical; it's on physics. And when Ausiello asked 'Big Bang Theory' star Jim Parsons what he thought, Parsons said that the object of Sheldon's affection would be the Nobel Prize, not another human being. Hearing the word that Dr. Sheldon Cooper has been awarded the Nobel Prize in theoretical physics would be Sheldon's turn on. "That's the warm embrace that he longs for," said Jim.

What Would 'The Big Bang Theory' Be Like Without the Laugh Track?

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 4th 2010 2:26PM
I love seeing TV shows and movies with something taken away from them. Even comic strips, as 'Garfield Minus Garfield' shows, can become completely different when seen in a different context.

This video is a scene from 'The Big Bang Theory' with the laugh track taken out. It gives you a little hint as to what a show with a big laugh track is like with the laughs taken out. Without the laughs (and the build up to them), the lines suddenly seem more...intense and weighty (I guess it doesn't help that you don't know what came before this scene if you haven't seen it before).

TV-wise, this isn't the most wonderful time of the year

by Bob Sassone, posted Dec 28th 2009 1:30PM
retro tvSo we're in that dead time of the TV season when there's really not much on. Everything seems to be a repeat on the networks (not just prime time but game shows and talk shows during the day, too) or your favorite show isn't on at all.

There could be a silver lining in all of this though. Since your favorite shows are in repeats or aren't on, why not take this opportunity to watch a show you've never seen before? For example, tonight's CBS comedy lineup of How I Met Your Mother, Accidentally on Purpose, Two and a Half Men, and Big Bang Theory are all repeats, so why not check out House if you've never seen it before? Sounds good in theory (big bang or otherwise), though I'm not sure if people think like that with their TV show watching.
