The Big Bang Theory is set to get a visit from a classic TV comedian, but he won’t be bringing Larry, his brother Darryl, or his other brother Darryl. Bob Newhart will be appearing in an upcoming episode of CBS’ hit comedy, marking his first half-hour comedy role in close to ten years.
In unsurprising news, two of the top three most pirated TV shows, according to TorrentFreak, are pay cable series, but interestingly enough, only three of the top ten shows are premium cable series, which suggests that the issue of pirating has as much - if not more - to do with availability as it does with cost.

Part of the Comic Con experience is enduring the long but usually (relatively) quickly-moving line to pick up your badge and other materials each attendee receives. Among which is a big bag, which can be used to carry all sorts of loot acquired on the floor. Warner Bros. Entertainment and Comic Con have teamed up once again on the oversized 24”x29” bags, which feature a variety of TV shows, as well as a couple of anticipated feature films. Check them out ahead!
While there's no word (yet) on whether or not HBO or AMC will manage to get their huge series into Hall H at Comic Con this year, Warner Bros. TV released some information about their series, which includes The Big Bang Theory and Fringe. The CBS comedy and the Fox sci-fi drama will both be featuring panels at SDCC this summer, and fans will find them in Hall H, as opposed to the smaller Ballroom 20.
The hit CBS comedy has nabbed the severe and heavily mustached character actor Casey Sander for a very important guest starring role.

CBS renewed more than a dozen TV series, which join the previously renewed The Big Bang Theory and How I Met Your Mother. Not all of the network’s shows made the list, but it looks like most of the network’s Monday night comedy line-up will be left intact.
As it turns out, maybe that long shot of astronomical proportions was actually a surmountable situation. Maybe it is the love The Big Bang Theory for Hawking and maybe it is the more than 15 millions fans that is piquing the scientist’s interest, but Hawking is on board for a guest appearance. Last year, Hawking showed up in an episode of the animated comedy, Futurama, but it will be nice to see him play a live version of himself in this comedic role.

Last nights ratings are in and The Big Bang Theory managed to win the night despite the fact that it was rerun.

There’s good news and not-so-good news on the subject of Community’s ratings. The good news is, ratings are up for the series, which unfortunately, won’t be back for midseason.
