About Big Bang Theory
The contrast of geeky characters and a socially intelligent character and the setting where academic knowledge clashes with regular life are one of the reasons why the TV show Big Bang Theory became a hit. Conceptualized by Chuck Lorre, Billy Prady, and Steven Molaro, who are also executive producers of the show, The Big Bang Theory premiered on CBS on September 24, 2007. From the pilot episode, the show's ratings have continued to skyrocket, and have entered the world's consciousness. The geeks of the show are the characters Leonard Hofstadter, Sheldon Cooper, Howard Wolowitz, and Raj Koothrappali, and their geekiness is counterbalanced by the waiter slash aspiring actress, Penny. Their brand of crazy is further heightened by supporting characters that later on also became lead characters such as Leslie Winkle, Bernadette Rostenkowski, Stuart Bloom, and Amy Farrah Fowler. Because the show has become such a major phenomenon, each salary of the three main characters, Johnny Galecki playing as Leonard, Jimmy Parson playing Sheldon, and Kaley Cuoco playing Penny, has risen from five figures to six figures. In 2011, CBS announced that the show is was renewed for another three years. The geeks and the lady are sure going to be well-loved TV characters long after their show ends.
