Bob Newhart plans 'Big Bang Theory' return after first Emmy win

After winning his first career Emmy at the Creative Arts Emmys Awards on Sunday (Sept. 15), Bob Newhart announced he was planning to return to "The Big Bang Theory.""There's a script I'll be doing in October, and I'm pretty sure I play Professor Proton in that," Newhart said backstage after accepting his award. "But he might have given up his science thing. That's up to Chuck [Lorre] and the writing team."As for not winning an Emmy in over 50 years of performing, Newhart had an logical and reasonable answer as to why Sunday marked his first award."There were a couple years where I didn't submit my name," Newhart said. "I just felt that the kind of stuff I do doesn't win awards. And I didn't really want to go through the process and the disappointment. So maybe for six years, three of 'The Bob Newhart Show' and three of 'Newhart,' I didn't bother submitting...

While it's unclear what brings Beverly into the fold this time around, TVLine teases that, given her hilarious and bizarre connection to Jim Parsons' Sheldon, fans shouldn't automatically assume it's Lenard she's hoping to see."The Big Bang Theory" returns for Season 7 with back-to-back new episodes on Thursday, Sept. 26 at 8:00 p.m. ET on CBS....

'The Big Bang Theory': 'Batman' Adam West would 'love to do' guest shot

Adam West is up for making a "Big Bang."The iconic "Batman" of 1960s television was asked last weekend -- during a joint appearance with William Shatner at Salt Lake City's Comic-Con -- whether they'd consider doing guest shots with the superhero-obsessed characters of the CBS sitcom "The Big Bang Theory," which starts its seventh season Thursday, Sept. 26.Shatner seemed more enthused by the prospect than West, whose response at the time was, "Maybe." In fact, the actor who was the Caped Crusader from 1966-68 on ABC (and also in a 1966 movie spinoff) confirms he would very much welcome a stint with Sheldon (Jim Parsons), Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and the rest of the "Big Bang" gang."My agent has called for a year," West tells Zap2it, "and has said, 'Do you want to do "Big Bang?" Do you want to do "Hot in Cleveland?" I think it would be nice, but -- and this is reasonably...

‘The Big Bang Theory’ Season 7 Premiere Photo: Penny and Sheldon….Hugging?

Leonard’s trip must have led to some interesting developments in terms of the group dynamics because in the first image from the two-part season seven premiere of  The Big Bang Theory , Sheldon and Penny are hugging. Well, Penny is hugging Sheldon, but it’s still an unusual site given that Sheldon generally reserves human contact for special occasions and awesome gifts. In “The Hofstadter Insufficiency” and “The Deception Verification,” the gang will welcome Leonard back from his trip and catch him up on what he missed out on, including some serious Penny and Sheldon bonding. In fact, Sheldon might not be ready to welcome his best buddy back at all when his feelings are hurt upon Leonard’s return. Read More...

What You Didn't Know About 'The Big Bang Theory' Apartment

The fourth floor Pasadena, California apartment where Sheldon and Leonard live has an open floor plan living and kitchen area with a breakfast bar, two bedrooms and one bathroom (with a cool periodic table shower curtain). Bill Podley, president of Podley Properties in that area, told Bankrate that the home would cost the two about $1,800 to $2,200 a month in rent. This would be realistically doable for university scientists. Want to get a better idea of their pad? Spanish interior designer Iñaki Aliste Lizarralde hand draws floor plans of famous TV homes, including Sheldon and Leonard's place. (And Penny's, too.) Head over to Bankrate to get the details on five other TV homes and make sure you tune into CBS on September 26 for the season premiere. Have something to say?
