'Big Bang Theory' Set Visit: Are Leonard and Penny Headed for a Big Break-Up?

by Laura Prudom, posted Mar 24th 2010 3:00PM

From Ross and Rachel to Booth and Brennan, "will they/won't they" couples have become a staple part of our TV diet, with shows often dangling the carrot of love above viewers' heads right up until the very last episode. But CBS' geektastic comedy 'The Big Bang Theory' is way too smart (literally) for that, deciding to forgo the frustration and get right down to the romance after finally hooking up nerdy Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and vivacious Penny (Kaley Cuoco) at the start of season three.

But the course of true love never did run smooth. AOL TV recently stopped by the 'Big Bang Theory' set to get the inside scoop from all five 'Big Bang' cast members, and we think fans will be surprised by what they had to say. Check out our spoilertastic interview after the jump.

You'll have to tune in Jan. 25 at the show's new 10PM time slot to find out for sure, but in the meantime, check out AOL Television's exclusive visit to the 'Greek' set to see what's in store for the coming season, as we get the dirt from all your favorite brothers and sisters.

Set Visit: Stargate Universe ups ante for veteran franchise

by John Scott Lewinski, posted Oct 21st 2009 11:00AM
The starship Destiny is the home of the crew for Stargate Universe.The writers and producers of Syfy's Stargate Universe could've played it safe and got along just fine with their latest series.

After Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin's 1994 feature film from MGM, the series' first TV adaption (SG1) arrived in 1997. When you throw in the follow-up series, Infinity and Atlantis, the Stargate franchise has run on TV in one form or another for more than 12 years.

When the time came to invent the next step in the franchise, show-runners Brad Wright and Robert C. Cooper could have trotted out more of the same and done perfectly well. Instead, they upped the ante -- bringing a bigger budget and updated production techniques to Stargate Universe.

MGM and Syfy welcomed journalists to Vancouver's Bridge Studios to explore the show's starship Destiny set and discover how this series cruises beyond its successful predecessors.

An Office wedding... and Michael Scott talks to the "mafia" - TCA Report

Angela Kinsey shows us accounting on The Office SetOne of the highlights of Friday's press tour day was a visit to the set of The Office. During that visit, various cast members took groups of critics through the entire office set (Angela Kinsey was my group's guide, as you can see in the photo). After the tour, the entire cast, except for the ailing Rainn Wilson, joined creator Greg Daniels in the warehouse to answer our questions.

Executive producer Paul Lieberstein (who also plays Toby) took the bulk of the questions about what's going to go on this season. One tidbit that he readily dropped (probably because it had been published already) was that there's going to be a special event in the fourth episode. Details after the jump.

Breaking TCA News: Chandra Wilson Checks Into 'Private Practice'

by Maggie Furlong, posted Aug 4th 2009 11:15PM
Chandra WilsonI wasn't expecting to get much serious breaking news from today's set visit to ABC's 'Private Practice' -- boss Shonda Rhimes tends to keep show secrets just that.

Maybe something was in the air. Maybe the sight of a bus full of (already exhausted) TCA members trekking across town to come play warmed her heart. Whatever it was, Rhimes decided to dish a little 'Private Practice' season 3 scoop: Chandra Wilson (a.k.a. 'Grey's Anatomy''s own Miranda Bailey) will be visiting Oceanside Wellness in the season's third episode.

On the Set: 5 Things We Learned About 'Heroes'

by Maggie Furlong, posted Oct 10th 2008 5:45AM
HeroesVisiting the set of 'Heroes' might just be the most exclusive outing ever.

NBC's superhero drama is notoriously secretive with its storylines, and set visits are a once-a-season treat, if that. So to be invited to play for the day was a thrill -- when we heard it was to watch another of their infamous looks at possible futures, we were ecstatic.

Here are five juicy nuggets straight from Stage 4 of Sunset Gower Studios in Hollywood. Don't forget to check back for our chat with Zachary Quinto before the 'Angels and Monsters' episode on Oct. 13.

Eleventh HourBehind the scenes of fall's hot new procedural

'Eleventh Hour,' CBS' new medical mystery drama from producer Jerry Bruckheimer (premieres Thurs., Oct. 9 at 10PM EST), investigates futuristic-sounding cases like cloning for personal use, mysterious heart attack-related deaths among healthy young boys and a long-dormant disease suddenly being spread again.

Rufus Sewell plays Dr. Jacob Hood, the genius biophysicist who's brought in on extreme cases when all else fails, and Marley Shelton plays FBI Agent Rachel Young, who's charged with keeping Hood in line.

We hung out on the set at the Warner Bros. Ranch Stage 33 in Los Angeles to chat with the two stars -- keep reading to get the scoop on what to expect.

TV Squad video: on the set of Scrubs

by Kevin Kelly, posted Feb 13th 2007 11:01AM

TV Squad -- at least the part consisting of Joel Keller and myself -- recently visited the set of Scrubs, and were lucky enough to score interviews with Zach Braff (J.D.), Sarah Chalke (Elliot), and Bill Lawrence, the creator and executive producer. The hardest part about doing this video is not revealing who dies in the episode that was being shot. Seriously, it's driving me a bit mental. However, NBC lawyers and corporate drones would descend upon us so fast if we were to reveal which long-time cast member unfortunately passes away in the episode. So, we'll keep mum.

Scrubs has been shooting for six seasons now, and has an extremely tight cast and crew. However, they couldn't have been nicer to us, and we were treated to a fun day on set. In between takes, we picked up some interviews that drop hints at a possible seventh season, insights into the characters, and even some news about the Nobody's Watching show. Looks like a special on NBC is in the works!

Watch the video after the jump, and also check out AOL's gallery of photos from the very same set visit. We really want one of those Dr. Kelso paintings hanging in the palatial TV Squad lobby. He manages to look both regal and downtrodden at the same time.

So is Zach Braff staying with Scrubs or not? - TCA Report

by Joel Keller, posted Jan 19th 2007 6:01PM
Zach BraffIt's odd. You ask a person a question enough times, you sometimes end up hearing a range of answers that makes things even more muddled in your mind than if you never asked the question at all.

And I know it's been two days since NBC day at the Television Critics Association press tour, but what Zach Braff said at the Scrubs session is still making me scratch my head. He told the gathered lunch crowd that "Scrubs could go on without me," and that he'd love to keep working on the show if possible. He even joked with creator Bill Lawrence, who said that if he left and there was a season seven, he'd force Zach to come back and explain why he left. "I'd come back for one episode to die," said Braff.

Hm... the day before, when I visited the set for a video feature we're putting together, he gave a more affirmative answer. Granted, he never said the words, "Yes, I'm coming back," but he did tell me that he was recharged by doing this season, including the musical, and would love to come back if the opportunity presented itself. So what changed between Tuesday and Wednesday for him to say the show could go on without him?

Joel's morning on the set of Kidnapped

by Joel Keller, posted Sep 19th 2006 11:01AM
Recording Jeremy SistoWhen a New York-based PR firm sent Keith an invitation to a press day for the new NBC drama Kidnapped, which premieres on Wednesday at 10, he asked me if I wanted to do it, since I live reasonably close to the show's Queens studios. I paused to think about it for two seconds before I responded, "Damn skippy!"

Why not? Set visits have always intrigued me: will the sets look as good up close as they do on TV? How do they pull off some of the visual aspects of a show? Is the craft services table as good as they say? I was able to answer all those questions on August 30, when a group of reporters and I visited the Kidnapped set. We also got to have roundtable interviews with stars Dana Delany, Timothy Hutton, Delroy Lindo, and Jeremy Sisto, which was an experience, but not for the reasons you think. So, after the jump, here's the visual story of my morning on the Kidnapped set, complete with the requisite wise-ass remarks:
