Big Bang Theory: Bazinga! Big! Bang! Birthdays!
Well, bust out the D&D and let’s party! Fans of Big Bang Theory have cause to celebrate this week. Not only did the hit CBS show get renewed for three more seasons, but two cast members have birthdays on the same day. On April 30th, Jason Galecki- a Taurus in the show and in real life- will turn 39, and Kunal Nayya will be 33. Wonder if they’ll celebrate by playing a halo marathon? Bazinga!
Galecki has been a TV star since 1987, when he won the hearts of us 90′s kids as David Healy on Roseanne. How lucky can a guy be to score another hit sitcom as Leonard Hofstadter? Kunal Nayya has plenty to fall back on in case this whole star-of-a-massively-successful-sitcom thing doesn’t pan out- he got his big break in 2007, just a year after getting his MFA from Temple University in Philadelphia.
Big Bang Theory: Gotta Love the Geeks
There have been shows about lovable geeks before, but by far the most successful in recent years has to be Big Bang Theory. The show is currently in its seventh season, which means in three short years, it will rise to the ranks to become one of only several American sitcoms to last through ten seasons. Now that’s an important benchmark. A 3-season renewal isn’t common, but Big Bang Theory is averaging almost 20 million viewers, and those numbers don’t lie: Big Bang Theory is officially TV’s most-watched comedy and top-rated among adults ages 18-49. The cast members are already making $350,000 an episode, and that has risen from $200,000 in 2011, so the cast could soon find themselves with quite the retirement fund. Now how do you say congratulations in Klingon?
