The “Big Bang Theory” cast celebrates their colossal success at the PaleyFest on Wednesday night and it seems credit syndication has a lot to do with the success of Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady created sitcom.
With the number of reruns aired it is nearly impossible to avoid getting a glimpse of the show.
“You’re kind of forced to watch the show now,” joked actor Simon Helberg, one of the show’s many actors, this Wednesday evening at the PaleyFest. “We’re shoving it down people’s throats, and then they’re learning that they actually love that.”
“The Big Bang Theory” is centered around two roommates, physicists Leonard Hofstadter (Johnny Galecki) and Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parson), as well as their colleagues and friends, engineer Howard Wolowitz (Simon Helberg), and astrophysicist Raj Koothrappali (Kunal Nayyar).
“There’s something impossible to fathom about viewers and numbers and things like that,” Parsons explained. “I can barely picture 20 people in one room. If you want to say 17 or 18 million, well you’ve lost me.”
The entire cast of the sitcom was tight-lipped about their upcoming shows.
“Well I think (Howard’s) pants will probably be as skinny and probably a bit tighter,” Helberg began. “I think that Sheldon will probably still be sitting in his spot. It may be in a different apartment. I think he’ll sit in that spot until he’s in a home. Howard and Bernadette probably will … God, God help them if they have children. We know she hates them, and we know that Howard, essentially, is a child. So I wish them luck.”
