They’re both single-camera comedies. They both take place in the past. And they’re both narrated by an adult version of the main character. So it’s no wonder that, when we spoke to Chuck Lorre about Young Sheldon, he told us he was inspired by another classic comedy, The Wonder Years.
Young Sheldon airs Thursday nights at 8:30/7:30c on CBS.
As TV’s top comedy, The Big Bang Theory hasn’t had any trouble getting some pretty special guest stars. From cultural icons such as Stephen Hawking, Steve Wozniak, and Stan Lee to fanboy favorites like Wil Wheaton (Star Trek: The Next Generation) and the late Adam West (Batman), the show’s welcomed some pretty amazing people onto its set over the past 11 seasons. Of course, each of the stars has a favorite, but you may be surprised at who Kunal Nayyar, who plays Raj Koothrappali, considers his favorite. (Click on the media bar below to hear Kunal Nayyarv)
