PaleyFest: 'Big Bang Theory'

Big bang theory Lesley Goldberg braves the Arclight crowds to cover the PaleyFest session for CBS' Big Bang Theory, "the only sitcom to get a review in Science magazine."

On the show's popularity:

Simon Helberg (Howard) believes Big Bang — which gained viewers during the 100-day writers strike — has become such a breakout hit because he doesn’t “think that there are that many cool people in the world, really, so I think everybody has got this inner-nerd that sort of feels inactive in certain ways.

“I think all the cool people from high school sneak home and watch it and say, ‘Wow, this is me!’ and then go back to school and beat up those nerds,” he added. “I think everyone knows what it’s like to try and fit in and not succeed.”

As for Sheldon’s lack of interest in dating, Lorre said that Sheldon has “opted out.”

“He’s in love with science,” he said. “I’ve never seen a character on TV who has opted out.”
