Remembering His Genius Friend: Jim Parsons On Stephen Hawking

Stephen Hawking was a brilliant man. He was a medical miracle, living well beyond his expected life span. And he was also a frequent guest star on The Big Bang Theory, making seven appearances on the hit CBS comedy. So when he died earlier this month, it came as a big blow to Big Bang star Jim Parsons. At a press event, he spoke about how learning of Hawking’s death affected him emotionally. (Click on the media bar below to hear Jim Parsons)

The Big Bang Theory airs Thursday nights at 8/7c on CBS.

Christine Baranski’s Up For A Good Laugh & A ‘Good Fight’

Twice, Christine Baranski has pulled off an amazing feat — she’s been nominated for Emmy Awards in two different categories for her work on two different TV shows. As a regular on The Good Wife, she earned six Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama nominations, and as a frequent guest star on The Big Bang Theory, she’s been nominated four times for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy. (In 2010 and 2015, she was nominated in both categories.) It takes a rare talent to achieve that kind of excellence in both drama and comedy, and Baranski just feels fortunate to have the chance to do both.

Baranski currently stars in the spinoff series, The Good Fight, which recently started its second season. New episodes begin streaming each Sunday on CBS All Access.

Why ‘Young Sheldon’ Doesn’t Look Like A Chip Off The Old ‘Bang’ Block

YOUNG SHELDONWhen it was announced that there would be a spinoff of The Big Bang Theory, most people assumed it would look and feel like the original — specifically, a traditional four-camera sitcom shot in front of a live studio audience. After all, that’s the way creator/writer/producer Chuck Lorre has shot all of his shows, so why would Young Sheldon be different? Well, as it turns out, it is different. It’s a one-camera comedy with no studio audience, and Lorre explained to us the rationale behind his decision to shoot Young Sheldon differently. (Click on the media bar below to hear Chuck Lorre)

Young Sheldon follows The Big Bang Theory, Thursday nights at 8:30/7:30c on CBS.
