My colleague Danny seems to think that Warner Brothers and CBS should show Charlie Sheen the door and let him leave the series, even though the network and production company are committed to two more years of 'Two and a Half Men.' And my other fellow TV Squadder Jason has kiddingly suggested seven characters who could fill Sheen's shoes. Well, to paraphrase the words of Dan Aykroyd on 'Saturday Night Live,' they are both ignorant sluts!

Melissa McCarthy Lands in New Lorre Comedy Pilot

melissa_mccarthy_abc_samantha_whoLooking into future for CBS comedy, it seems likely that Chuck Lorre will be a part of it. He's already the key component in the success of 'The Big Bang Theory' and 'Two and a Half Men,' so chances are the Tiffany network would like to see what he has in store next. That will probably be 'Mike and Molly,' a pilot that is currently in production starring Billy Gardell as a fat, charming cop who meets the girl of his dreams at an Overeaters Anonymous meeting.

The girl, Molly, is going to be played by Melissa McCarthy. The fact that Melissa McCarthy will be in 'Mike and Molly' has made me want to watch it. How great is it that Sookie from 'Gilmore Girls' is getting the star turn! For fans of 'Gilmore Girls,' Sookie was always an adorable sidekick to Lorelai, and Melissa McCarthy was wonderful in the role. She was equally kooky and lovable on 'Samantha Who?' as Dena. I have no doubt that she's going be be terrific on 'Mike and Molly.'

Sheldon Cooper May Get a 'Big Bang'

by Brad Trechak, posted Mar 27th 2010 1:00PM
The Big Bang TheoryIt seems that the producers of 'The Big Bang Theory' have decided it's time for Jim Parson's character of Sheldon Cooper to have a girlfriend. Mayim Bialik will appear on the season finale of the sitcom as Sheldon's date, a potentially recurring role.

This has serious shark-jumping disaster potential. Sheldon has been repeatedly shown in the past as having zero interest in a romantic relationship. It's one of the hallmarks of the character. He's even rejected Danica McKellar.

On the other hand, the major event could be him simply feeling his age and wishing to procreate his genius. He'll probably run out of other options such as cloning. Also, Bialik's character is described as a female version of Sheldon, perhaps she's seeking a "brain-only" relationship, too.

Still, it does seem a bit like selling out. Romantic relationships are in every sitcom, but I was hoping 'The Big Bang Theory' wouldn't succumb to sitcom peer pressure and keep some of the elements that made it unique. We'll see how this change of character is executed before any final judgments are made.

'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.

Sheldon Gets Drunk on 'The Big Bang Theory' (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Mar 22nd 2010 11:52PM
Sheldon on 'The Big Bang Theory' (Mon., 9:30PM ET on CBS) already has a lot of trouble interacting with other, normal human beings. But on a night when he has to give a big speech, additional problems arise. What to do? How to build up the courage? Why, through drinking lots of alcohol, of course!

Unfortunately, fans of the show already know that Sheldon (Jim Parsons) has zero tolerance for alcohol. And so disaster -- predictably -- ensues. Remember: Working up your nerve before a big speech is very important. But even more important than that is remembering to wear your pants.

Watch the video after the jump.

'Dr. Horrible' Sequel: 'Big Bang Theory' Star Simon Helberg Talks Rumors

by Laura Prudom, posted Mar 22nd 2010 4:30PM
During a recent visit to the set of CBS' hit comedy 'The Big Bang Theory,' Simon Helberg, the man who wears Howard Wolowitz's tight pants, gave us an update on the status of the rumored sequel to Joss Whedon's cult web series, 'Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.'

'Horrible' fans may have recognized Helberg as the villainous (and slightly damp) Moist, henchman to Neil Patrick Harris' Dr. Horrible in the original series, and as far as Helberg knows, he's in line to reappear for the sequel.

Sheldon Goes All Gollum on 'Big Bang Theory' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 9th 2010 5:02AM
Sheldon turns into Gollum on 'The Big Bang Theory' We laughed out loud when Sheldon called the ring "my precious," then looked in the mirror to see that he's become Gollum from 'Lord of the Rings.'

No other show does the geek factor as well as 'The Big Bang Theory' (Mon., 9:30PM ET on CBS), which is why we love both it and Sheldon Cooper. We're onboard for as long as it lasts.

Let's just hope Sheldon doesn't start seeing a big fiery eye in the sky.

Maxim-um Penny as 'Big Bang Theory' Star Does Photo Shoot

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 16th 2010 1:01PM
kaley_cuoco_penny_big_bang_theory_maximIt doesn't take a rocket scientist -- let alone the brainiacs on 'The Big Bang Theory' -- to recognize that the girl next door is a beautiful woman. Magazine editors have seen it, too, and 'Big Bang Theory's' Kaley Cuoco has been featured in Maxim magazine. That's right, Penny's in Maxim.

These photos, which aren't too shocking or revealing, just very sexy and suggestive -- the full set is here -- do fall into the category of cheesecake. Perfect for an actress/waitress working at The Cheesecake Factory, right?

Super-Colliders, Switzerland and Sheldon on 'The Big Bang Theory' (VIDEO)

The Big Bang Theory - The Large Hadron CollisionSheldon is soooo excited! Turns out the University is sending Leonard to Switzerland to see the CERN Super-Collider – and he can bring a guest! Well, Sheldon automatically thinks HE will be Leonard's plus-one at the event. "This is incredible!" says Sheldon. "I'm so happy, I'm not even going to question their judgment in picking you!"

Not so fast! Of course, Leonard will want to take Penny, especially since the trip happens on Valentine's Day. But will she be all that geeked about subatomic particle research? Either way, it's just awkward all the way around. Watch 'The Big Bang Theory' on Mon., 9:30PM on CBS.

Jim Parsons Stands Up 2 Cancer and It's Great

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 5th 2010 9:00AM
jim_parsons_the_big_bang_theoryAs Dr. Sheldon Cooper on 'The Big Bang Theory,' Jim Parsons is a big bang of funny week in and week out. Oh, yes, he's not working alone. He has a wonderful group of actors around him and they're also very funny characters. But the breakout star on that show from the very start has been Jim.

But is it the character or the actor? Hmm ... if only there was a way to see Jim doing something else. Well, ta-da, here it is. Watch this public service announcement created by the folks at Stand Up to Cancer. If you had any doubt that Jim Parsons is a comic wizard, this will dispel them.
