As one of the most-watched shows on TV for quite a few years, The Big Bang Theory obviously reaches a massive number of people, and not only through its weekly CBS airings or its countless syndicated spots. Everyone within the ensemble has their own fanbases to reach out to, and star Kaley Cuoco hit up social media to get fans pumped about the upcoming Season 10 finale, which is currently filming. To do so, she enlisted the assistance of that most ubiquitous of beverages out there right now: the Unicorn Frappuccino.

You know you're winning at life when you've got colorful coffee and the promise of a temporary work break coming soon. For what it's worth, I almost never get the chance to match my beverage of choice with the important work that I'm doing, so I'm a little jealous there. As well, I don't happen to have in my possession the script for the season finale for a hugely successful network sitcom that I star in. The jealousy factor is slightly higher in that respect.

In her Instagram post, we don't get to see Kaley Cuoco take her straw and try to stir the script's cover page to see if its colors swirl around like they do in the Unicorn Frappuccino. But that's probably because she's not an insane person. In fact, she pretty craftily put all the attention on the drink in the corner so that no one would stare holes through that Sharpie marker to discover the name of the Season 10 finale. Will the episode center on the gang's attempt to acquire one of the limited time Fraps before it stops being sold? That sounds right in line with the show's non-relationship plots.

Having just gone on sale this week at Starbucks all around the country, the Unicorn Frappuccino has completely taken over the way that some people live their lives, and it's hard to do any Internet searching or social media traversing without running head-on into Unicorn Frap memes, reviews, complaints and more. And even though nobody at that company likely reached out to CBS to get Kaley Cuoco to give the drink a Big Bag-related boost, I'm sure no one was complaining about the publicity.

Speaking of jealousy, -- because it was mentioned earlier -- The Big Bang Theory's finale is going to throw a small wrench in the works when it comes to Sheldon and Amy, and it's possible that Amy will come out of this season with some envious feelings of her own. You see, while she'll be away at Princeton, Sheldon will get a special visitor in Riki Lindhome's Dr. Ramona Nowitzki, whom audiences haven't seen since Season 2. At the time, Ramona developed a strong obsession with Sheldon and his braininess, which not only baffled Leonard & Co,, but also worked to turn Sheldon away. Will she have a new bag of tricks this time to try and win Sheldon over, and will a Unicorn Frappuccino come into it? Or will she maybe be in a relationship that causes him to be jealous?

With a couple episodes left to go, The Big Bang Theory is gearing up for its big Season 10 finale, which is set to air on Thursday, May 11, at 8:00 p.m. PT. Head to our midseason premiere schedule and our summer TV guide to see what's coming to the small screen in the near future.
