About THE BIG BANG THEORY
Comedy has expanded to 5 Nights A Week (check http://www.BigBangWeeknights.com for local listings)!  The Big Bang Theory is the story of two brainy best friends who could tell you anything you want to know about quantum physics – but when it comes to dealing with everyday life here on Earth, they’re lost in the cosmos. Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Sheldon (Jim Parsons) are brilliant physicists – wizards in the laboratory, but socially inept outside of it. Enter their beautiful, free-spirited neighbor, Penny (Kaley Cuoco), who aims to teach them a thing or two about life. While Leonard spends his days looking for love, Sheldon is quite content playing Star Trek 3D chess with their ever-expanding universe of friends, including fellow Caltech scientists Howard Wolowitz (Simon Helberg), Rajesh Koothrappali (Kunal Nayyar) and more. http://www.BigBangWeeknights.com
