The Simpsons Big Bang Theory Couch Gag

Another Sunday has passed, which means a new couch gag from The Simpsons has come and gone. The animated series will be coming into its 29th and 30th seasons with a renewal already in place that will solidify the show’s place in TV history with the highest episode count ever. That means there are plenty more couch gags to come, but for now, the most recent one gives us an abridged history of the show that has spanned nearly three decades. The only downside is that it’s in the style of the opening credits for the CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory.

The Big Bang Theory Spin-Off

The CBS comedy series The Big Bang Theory is currently in the middle of its 10th season. Right now the network is trying to negotiate a deal to give the popular show starring Jim Parsons a two-season renewal, and CBS CEO Les Moonves says they’re “on the two-yard line” with deal. If for some reason that doesn’t happen, fans will still be getting more of The Big Bang Theory, just not in the way they think.

CBS has just closed a deal to give The Big Bang Theory spin-off Young Sheldon a straight-to-series order for the upcoming 2017-2018 season. However, this show will have a different format from what The Big Bang Theory fans are used to, and a former Marvel director will be behind the camera for it. Read More »

The Big Bang Theory just began its 10th season last month, and over that decade there have been countless guest stars including Carrie Fisher, Elon Musk, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Adam West, Bill Nye, Bob Newhart, James Earl Jones, Stan Lee and more. Also, a batch of former Star Trek cast members have appeared over the years including Leonard Nimoy, Brent Spiner, Levar Burton, George Takei and Wil Wheaton. But one big kahuna hasn’t appeared on the show yet: The Priceline Negotiator.

William Shatner is best known for playing Captain James T. Kirk in the original Star Trek series as well as the film franchise that reunited the show’s cast on the big screen. Even though the actor has made various guest appearances and cameos in plenty of TV shows and movies over the years, he’s yet to make a stop by The Big Bang Theory. So why hasn’t the show brought Captain Kirk into the fray yet? Well, it’s because he turned them down. Find out why after the jump. Read More »
