Warner Bros. Television's critically acclaimed hit series "The Big Bang Theory" (Thursdays at 8 p.m. / 7 p.m. on CBS, five nights a week in syndication) has been called "TV's funniest sitcom" by USA Today. The New York Daily News has proclaimed that the show "...has just hit that magical, elusive sweet spot nailed by only a handful of sitcoms, the rarefied likes of I Love Lucy, M*A*S*H, The Cosby Show and Seinfeld." TV's most-watched comedy stars the aforementioned Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar, Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch. Now in its sixth season, "The Big Bang Theory" was created by Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady, who serve as executive producers of the series, alongside showrunner Steven Molaro.
