The Big Bang Theory

The Big Bang Theory is an American sitcom that first aired on CBS on September 24, 2007. It was created by Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady. The eleventh season began on September 25, 2017. 255 episodes of the show have aired.

The show centers on five characters: roommates Leonard and Sheldon; best friends Howard and Raj; and Penny, an actress. The guys' nerdy, intelligent, asocial personalities are juxtaposed with the normality of Penny. Over the series, new main characters Bernadette and Amy are introduced as girlfriends of Howard and Sheldon, respectively. Other characters include Stuart, the owner of a comic book store, and physicist Leslie Winkle.
