The Big Bang Theory TV Show Product Placement (Page 1 of 4)
The Big Bang Theory is an American sitcom created by Chuck Lorry and Bill Prady, who, along with Stephen Molaro, were the head writers of the television show.
The series premiered on September 24, 2007, on the CBS channel, and the show’s final season ended on May 16, 2019. It premiered in Russia on April 10, 2010. A total of 279 episodes were produced over 12 seasons. Thus, “The Big Bang Theory” became the longest sitcom in the history of television, surpassing the comedy series “Cheers” (275 episodes).
Originally, the main characters in the series were five characters living in Pasadena, California. They are Leonard Hofstadter and Sheldon Cooper, two physicists from the California Institute of Technology who live in the same apartment; Penny, a waitress and aspiring actress who lives in the apartment across the street; and Leonard and Sheldon’s friends and colleagues, aerospace engineer Howard Wolowitz and astrophysicist Rajesh Koothrappali. Over time they were joined by several significant secondary characters, including neurobiologist Amy Farrah Fowler, microbiologist Bernadette Rostenkowski, and comic book store owner Stuart Bloom.
The series was filmed in front of a live audience by Warner Bros. Television and Chuck Lorre Productions. Throughout the first season, The Big Bang Theory received mixed reviews from critics, but starting in the second season, reviews became mostly positive. Eight seasons of the series made it to the top 10 highest-rated TV shows in the United States, and the eleventh season ended up being the top-rated TV show of the 2017/2018 season. Between 2011 and 2014, the show was nominated annually for a television Emmy Award in the best comedy series category, and Jim Parsons, who played Sheldon, received four Emmys for best actor in a comedy series. In all, the television series earned 46 Emmy nominations and won seven awards. Parsons also won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Television Comedy Series in 2011. So far, the series has received 216 nominations and won 56 of them.
