Not at all, not at all. I would have though they would have invested in a hotel room for a week or two.

With cell phones off so they can't be tracked.

At the end of the scene, it says that Sheldon crosses to Penny's door--I wonder if that means he's planning to eat his dinner with them, or what.

Or is he looking to see if Leonard is going to join him for Chinese (assuming the pizza is for Penny by herself?) or what?

 

It doesn't say that he goes into his own apartment...

 

Maybe he just stops by to talk to Leonard before going to his own place?

 

ETA: I see that this scene takes place fairly early (p. 9 in the script), so I'm guessing Leonard's return is perhaps at the very beginning of Ep 2, or possibly the very end of Ep 1.

 

Thanks for the sides, chloe! :)


Who knows, you could have some sort of obsession towards pizza delivery guys... O_o 

: P

 

Anyway, thanks for that.

 

Like Pemberly and her sexy Dominos delivery guy. :p

Big Bang Theory's Academy (Emmy) Panel was tonight (SPOILERS, sort of)

One of the reporters from Variety tweeted a few things from it. I have not edited them so here they are:

 

BBT CBS ATAS (Emmy Voter Night Soiree) Panel Tweets from Variety 15 Aug 2013

 

No kidding you can feel the warmth among BBT mob. WB smart to do this Emmy tint jumping event on the set rather than a diff venue.

You can hear the 134 freeway when we don’t get it right. Chuck Lorre for locals only

 

Kaley Cuoco doesn’t want to know penny’s last name. It’s become “like a thing” she sez. “Maybe it’ll be Hofstadter one day”

 

Steven Molaro cagey abt Sheldon and amy trajectory next season. But he sez Sheldon and penny will bond over missing Leonard

 

Steven Molaro: BBT writers did their homework, played DandD one night with help from few bottles of bourbon

 

It is really not hard to see the Raj and Howard BBT spinoff when you see Simon H and Kunal N bantering out of character

 

Kundalini Nayyar: “it’s going to be fun to see how much he puts his foot in his mouth” now that Raj has lost his fear of speaking to women

 

Bill Prady can’t say enough about the “realness” of Steven Molaro’s writing, esp in emotional moments. Generous

 

 Bob N: Maybe 2 more segs next season. “I’m not looking for work,” Newhart sez. “This belongs to the young people. “

 

Jim Parsons; Bon Newhart has a real “easy way” about his comedy. Kaley Cuoco: felt like a comedy “lesson” every week. He’ll be bk for

 

Bob Newhart: knew chuck Lorre from the Radford days when chuck was doing Roseanne and Newhart was extant

 

Feelings and emotions were bedrock of BBT season 6, and a little less science jargon: Galecki

 

Johnny Galecki has a Jon Hamm gene, loves to grow that beard in the off season.

 

Chuck Lorre calls BBT “the experience of my career”. Interesting in that is what he used to say re 2.5 Men

 

Chuck lorre is effusive re Big bang theory: The show became something else this year. We all feel as a group we’re doing our best work.

Probably not Pearl. Those are tweets with the thing was going on. It's tough to listen, try to process what is being said and tweet coherently.

What the hell are these? The grammar is so poor I couldn't understand some of it. Please don't tell me this isn't the level of intelligence in the academy.

 

They were direct tweets from a reporter that was there.  She used shorthand and all kinds of abbreviations.  I am sure she was just trying to keep up with what was being said and didn't process perfect English for transmitting the information.  I was just glad we were getting some information about what questions were getting likely asked and responses to them since it was a private "by invitation only" event for Emmy voters.   It was to try and get voters to vote for the show and the nominees.

'Big Bang Theory's' Chuck Lorre: 'We've Grown Up' During an on-set Emmy panel for TV Academy members, the cast and creators of the CBS comedy also note that they don't feel that they're even half done telling their stories.

The cast and creators of CBS' The Big Bang Theory played host to members of the TV Academy on Thursday during a panel for Emmy voters held on the Burbank soundstage where the Warner Bros. Television comedy is filmed.

 

The evening opened with a 15-minute clip showcasing how the show's central characters -- Sheldon (Jim Parsons), Leonard (Johnny Galecki), Penny (Kaley Cuoco), Howard (Simon Helberg), Raj (Kunal Nayyar), Bernadette (Melissa Rauch) and Amy (Mayim Bialik) -- have progressed over six seasons before the creators, cast and guest star Bob Newhart used the 45-minute panel discussion to praise showrunner Steve Molaro and how the series has found its groove in its sixth season.

 

In its recently concluded season, Big Bang toppled Modern Family to become TV's No. 1 scripted comedy with an average of 18.6 million total viewers and a 6.2 rating among the advertiser-coveted adults 18-49 demographic.

 

"We never imagined when we started that we'd have anything like what's happening; the last couple years have been beyond our wildest dreams," co-creator Chuck Lorre said in his opening remarks, acknowledging the show's eight nominations this year, including for best comedy. "You never imagine that you can reach that many people who care about the show so deeply. … We all feel as a group we're doing our best work now; we've grown up and the show has matured and we're doing a much better job of putting on the show every week."

Lorre attributed the ratings growth -- a rarity for an aging series in today's fragmented viewership era -- syndicated repeats airing on TBS helping to hook new viewers to the comedy about a lovable group of nerds navigating life and love and the show's steadfast commitment to producing the best product possible.

 

"We can't control where it is or when it is but we can control what we do and I think we've become a more consistent show this year. The relationship with the audience today on television is so fragile, there's so many things to watch -- people could conceivably read," he said to laughs. "So for us to have a relationship with the audience that has some kind of sustained relationship over time, we have to make a great show every week. You go into a restaurant and get a bad meal, you don't go back -- that's how we feel about The Big Bang Theory: Every week has to be a show that we're proud of and we did everything we possibly could to make it a great show. Year six really has been the best example of that."

The season's high points also included a seminal moment between on-again, off-again couple Leonard and Penny, with the latter professing her love for the guy across the hall for the first time.  

 

Co-creator Bill Prady gave credit for the scene -- which was filmed in one take -- to Molaro and used it as an example of the realness the longtime writer/EP and first-year showrunner brings to the series.

 

"It's one of the amazing things I find about the way Steve writes: they say, 'I love you' by accident in the middle of an argument. … If there's a way to encapsulate the way Steve writes, that scene did it for me; it has an incredible realness and a naturalness," Prady said. "The reason it was possible to lose yourself in the acting of the scene is because when you read scenes like that you get the sense that the writers has lost himself in the writing of it."

 

Molaro stressed that the Big Bang writers typically don't plot the season out too far in advance -- they've currently plotted out the first six episodes of season seven -- but that moment was a long time coming for the characters.

 

"We're not the kind of show that thinks too far ahead; we go episode by episode but I don't mind saying that I love and care about all the characters very much," he said. "I'm very protective of Leonard and Penny. That particular 'I love you' moment was something that meant a lot to all the writers and I share the credit for that moment with them as well. It was something Leonard deserved and I hope they get to have more wonderful moments."

 

The cast also shared stories about working with the Emmy nominated Newhart -- who reiterated that he'd be back to reprise his role as Professor Proton at some point in the series' future -- and acknowledged that they all realize they're a part of something special.

 

When the cast and creators were asked if they realized people in 50 years would be talking about Big Bang the way others talk about Newhart or I Love Lucy today, Lorre revealed a very grounded approach to the series that recently earned its third straight best comedy Emmy nomination.

 

"If you actually thought that way, you'd have a nervous breakdown," he said with a laugh. "It'd be petrifying to think on a macro-scale like that. It's, 'What can we do right now to make this scene the best scene? This story the best story? This joke work.' If you look out there at what's happening, it's staggering. It's extremely, unbelievably, overwhelmingly gratifying but you have to put it down, it's just too much."

 

Added Cuoco: "We have an understanding of how special this is and we know it doesn't come a million times in your life time. Each one of us sitting here knows that and feels that way. We talk about that and we're very aware that this is something extremely special and we take it really seriously and appreciate it."

 

Galecki, for whom Big Bang marks his second long-running comedy (Roseanne), had the most poignant response of the night when the discussion turned to the show's future (it's been renewed through season seven).

 

"When you hear something like season seven, that puts it in a very surreal perspective. Shows that get that opportunity are those iconic, legendary shows," he said. "Not to make any predictions whatsoever but as far as the lifeline of most shows, the seventh year, you're past the halfway mark. I personally don't feel like we've told half the stories that these characters have to tell. It doesn't feel to me like we're halfway through. I'm certainly not done working with all of these people."

 

The Big Bang Theory returns Thursday, Sept. 26 at 8 p.m. on CBS.

The Big Bang Theory has done what few shows on television have done before: It has actually grown in viewership since its first season by more than 10 million viewers — and it keeps getting bigger.

The CBS comedy closed out last season with 18.6 million viewers and a 6.2 rating in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, making it the No. 1 comedy in both measures, a feat unheard of for a show heading into its seventh season these days. The ratings are only topped by the show's eight Emmy nominations, including Comedy Series, Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for Jim Parsons and Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for Mayim Bialik.

Comic-Con: 7 things you didn't know about The Big Bang Theory

But how long can this roller coaster last? "Not to make any predictions whatsoever, but in as far as the lifeline of most shows — at the seventh year, obviously, we're over the halfway mark — I personally don't feel like we've told half the stories that these characters have to tell," star Johnny Galecki said at Thursday's Warner Bros.-hosted Emmy panel on the Bangset, moderated by TV Guide Magazine's Rob Moynihan. "I'm certainly not halfway through personally working with all of these people, so I hope [to continue]."

"The answer changes after every season," executive producer Bill Prady told TVGuide.com after the panel. "If you'd ask the question after Season 4, you'd say, 'Boy, it would be great to get to Season 8.' But then you have a season like last year and you say, 'Well, maybe there's more to it than that.' It's possible to keep going because everybody likes each other and no one has gone crazy and no one is mean."

Prady attributes Bang's ratings and popularity surge to a number of changes, including Steve Molaro taking over as showrunner, the addition female cast members — Bialik's Amy Farrah Fowler and Melissa Rauch's Bernadette Rostenkowski — and the show running in syndication. "One of the great things about a Chuck Lorre-style show is that every episode is welcoming," Prady said. "While we do tell serialized stories, at any point you come in, you'll get all the information you need in the episode to catch up."

Mega Buzz: How will Penny and Sheldon handle Leonard being away?

"The relationship with the audience today on television is so fragile," Lorre said during the panel. "There are so many things to watch — people could conceivably read — so for us to have a relationship with an audience that has some kind of a sustained relationship over time, we have to make a great show every week. If you go into a restaurant and you get a bad meal, you don't go back. That's how we feel about The Big Bang Theory. Every week has to be a show that we're proud of and we did everything we possibly [could] to be a great show."

While quick pacing became a trend last season, Bang has always prided itself on taking things slow, especially when it comes to Raj (Kunal Nayyar) finally speaking to a woman for the first time without alcohol in the Season 6 finale. And like the slow burn of Amy and Sheldon's relationship, Molaro said the writers tend not to think too far ahead, but rather plan things episode to episode. "This season, we're realizing that there are pairings of these characters that we've barely scratched the surface on," he said. "Wolowitz [simon Helberg] and Amy spend time together for the first time ever. So I feel like we've got a long way to go. As far as how many years, I can't put a number on it, but I cautiously and optimistically believe it'll be a long time."

Lorre added: "As long as everybody is having a good time and the audience still cares ... you don't want to overstay your welcome, but you don't want to miss out on an opportunity like this. I just know we're having a blast now and it's a lot of fun. It doesn't feel like Year 7 at all."

What's great about being so far down the line now, Galecki said, is that the characters are more comfortable with each other, lending to greater comedy. "It's less about the guys' relationship with science and more about their relationships," he said. "There's an intimacy there just in how long they've known each other, whether that's been all of the guys or Leonard and Penny's [Kaley Cuoco] relationship now. For example, their insecurities aren't so on the surface any longer. They can poke fun of each other and push each other's buttons in a very loving manner."

Fall TV: Get the scoop on 40 returning shows

It should also come as no surprise that the No. 1 comedy on TV also attracts high-caliber guest stars, whether it's Christine Baranski and Laurie Metcalf as Leonard Hofstadter and Sheldon Cooper's mothers, respectively, geek gods Wil Wheton and Stan Lee, or the brightest minds in the field, including Stephen Hawking and real-life astronaut Mike Massimino. But it was Bob Newhart, nominated for Guest Actor in a Comedy Series, over whom the cast fawned Thursday night — to the point where he joked, "Can we do this every week?" Without missing a beat, Cuoco replied, "Well, you paid me $20 to say that." Newhart will reprise his role as Sheldon's childhood TV idol for at least two more episodes in Season 7. "It belongs to the young people," he said of a regular TV gig. "I had two great series. I'm not looking for work."

Maybe when the show does come to an end, we'll finally learn Penny's last name, which has yet to be revealed, a la Mr. Big's first name in Sex and the City — two shows you'd never think would be compared. "Maybe it'll be Hofstadter one day," Cuoco said to aww's from the crowd.

The Big Bang Theory returns with a one-hour premiere on Thursday, Sept. 26 at 8/7c on CBS.

Also, they had this in TVGuide under their 40 Episode Spoilers for coming Fall Season:

 

The Big Bang Theory (CBS)
Premieres:
Thursday, Sept. 26, 8/7c

Where We Left Off: With Penny's and Sheldon's blessing, Leonard left on a four-month research trip. After Lucy dumped Raj via text, Penny consoled, which led him to speak to her for the first time — without the aid of alcohol!

What's Next: Leonard won't be back from the research trip when Season 7 premieres — we'll see him work on the expedition — which gives Penny and Sheldon ample time to bond, so much so that Penny doesn't go on Bernadette and Amy's girls' trip. Having overcome his selective mutism, Raj won't be able to shut up around the ladies, and we might finally meet his parents in the flesh. Though Amy and Sheldon made progress intimately via their Dungeon & Dragons avatars, their relationship will continue to move at a glacial pace. Regina King will return as the university's director of human resources.

How could I have left out the most important tweet in there?  Duh!   Thanks, Sonia.   I really appreciate it.   That was my favorite of all the tweets from that reporter.  LOL!

 

I too am looking forward to Howard/Amy interaction.  It seems like they are looking for all kinds of ways to keep Sheldon and Amy apart in a way because they want to keep their movement forward very slow.   So they are avoiding them in scenes as much as possible in order to keep it an issue.  I am not sure how I feel about that.  I noticed that they have nothing written for them and they already said they have 6-7 episodes mapped out.  That isn't very encouraging for Shamy fans.   I guess we can be happy Amy is doing some other things, but I am disappointed that they really have worked very hard at keeping Shamy apart since D&D. :icon_cry:

^Well, that could definitely be the case.... but honestly, given the evidence I feel like the only reason they're keeping Sheldon-Amy distanced is because they want to milk it for all it's worth. It's clearly a very popular pair. With Lenny resolved, Shamy has the major storyline and I feel like Sheldon/Amy have been slowed down ever since 6x16 when there were rumors flying around about you-know-what. But I do think Molaro cares about the Shamy to treat them right when the time comes, TLSP is evidence of that. 

 

To me, what primarily annoyed me about the show last season was that it sort of neglected Amy and threw her under the bus, especially in the latter half of Season 6 - but it seems like she (hopefully) won't be neglected this season. I mean we have scenes dealing with brain science and Howard and Amy scenes??? That's a very intriguing dynamic to explore and gives me hope that we will see more S04/S05 Amy. So I guess it really depends on how it plays out on the screen. But the storyline definitely has potential for some Amy goodness.

Episode 15 will be the 150th episode maybe they are saving the shamy for then and something special though I'm not sure I can wait that long!

I think if fans had to wait until episode 15 to see any Shamy they would already be gone.  LOL!   I think that is far too long to have to wait.

Agree.  Some of my favorite scenes are watching the dynamic between Sheldon/Howard/Amy/Bernadette.  Those four working for and against each other are always gold.   They make great frenemies...sometimes friends, sometimes competitive foes.  As you stated, both Mayim and Simon are excellent actors as well.  They can do a vast range of material and make it fascinating.

I don't think that there's any plot to keep Sheldon and Amy apart or limit their interaction.  Just because they didn't mention any Shamy-specific spots doesn't mean that there won't be conversation/interaction.

It might mean that they haven't yet formulated a big Shamy moment, but that will likely come during November sweeps anyway.

 

At any rate, I think that they're mostly just talking about ways to look into new dynamics to explore--Penny and Sheldon without Leonard as a buffer, Amy and Bernie without Penny, and now Amy and Howard, without Bernie or Sheldon.

 

These situations have great potential in looking at area we haven't quite seen (well, except maybe S/P, but that depends on how that plays out).  I think it's kind of like the times we got to see Sheldon and Raj together.  That's also a pairing that we hadn't seen until they started working together and then the couple of times Sheldon acted as Raj's wingman, and those were some great moments.

 

So, I don't thnk these ideas have anything to do with deliberately keeping Sheldon and Amy apart.

Really? 12 Seasons?

Linda F. Brant ‏@LindaFBrant2m

When Will ‘Big Bang Theory’ End? Jim Parsons Sees The CBS Comedy Having 12 Seasons http://q.gs/4hYu6  get details……

 

I know they could go longer than seven, possibly up to 10, but 12?  Does anyone else think that could be stretching it?  I don’t see how you can keep it at all believable and certainly keep the relationships hanging that long.  If they want to move them forward in life and showing them married, etc. I guess they could go that long, but otherwise, I think that might be pushing it.

Here is the article that the person that tweeted was referencing:

 

From Huffington Post (her tweet was referencing): http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/08/16/when-will-big-bang-theory_n_3768619.html?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter

 

CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory” is one of the biggest hits on TV, and even though it’s entering its seventh season, fans shouldn’t be worried about the comedy nearing its end.

 

Jim Parsons, who’s won two Emmys and a Golden Globe for his portrayal of Sheldon Cooper on “The Big Bang Theory,” told Emmy magazine, “Part of me thinks this show could go 11 or 12 years … We seem to be a bit of an anomaly in that we’re holding on to a sizable audience, and it doesn’t fluctuate.”

 

Parsons said he plans to stick with the series for its entire run, however long that may be. “I love playing the character and getting to perform live every week,” he told Emmy magazine. “God knows it’s been one of the best things that’s ever happened to me in my life. From here on out, nothing I do — no matter how different or divergent it gets — won’t be tied in some way to ‘Big Bang.’”

 

During a Warner Bros.-hosted Emmy panel on “The Big Bang Theory” set moderated by TV Guide Magazine’s Rob Moynihan, Parsons’ co-star Johnny Galecki said he thinks the show could go on for more like 14 seasons or more.

 

"When you hear something like Season 7, that puts it in a very surreal perspective. Shows that get that opportunity are those iconic, legendary shows," Galecki, who plays Leonard Hofstadter, said during the panel, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “Not to make any predictions whatsoever, but as far as the lifeline of most shows, the seventh year, you’re past the halfway mark. I personally don’t feel like we’ve told half the stories that these characters have to tell. It doesn’t feel to me like we’re halfway through. I’m certainly not done working with all of these people.”

 

After the panel, TVGuide.com asked “Big Bang” executive producer Bill Prady if he saw an end in sight for the series. “If you’d ask the question after Season 4, you’d say, ‘Boy, it would be great to get to Season 8.’ But then you have a season like last year and you say, ‘Well, maybe there’s more to it than that,’” Prady said. “It’s possible to keep going because everybody likes each other and no one has gone crazy and no one is mean.”

 

Showrunner Steve Molaro added, “I feel like we’ve got a long way to go. As far as how many years, I can’t put a number on it, but I cautiously and optimistically believe it’ll be a long time.”

 

And co-creator Chuck Lorre echoed Molaro’s sentiments. “You don’t want to overstay your welcome, but you don’t want to miss out on an opportunity like this,” he told TVGuide.com.”I just know we’re having a blast now and it’s a lot of fun. It doesn’t feel like Year 7 at all.”

 

"The Big Bang Theory" returns with its one-hour Season 7 premiere on Thursday, September 26 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.

I think 10-11 is more likely, that seems to be the lifespan of a comedy, unless there's something unusual. 12 would tie it (with " My Three Sons")as the second longest running live action sitcom EVER. My Three Sons was different as it basically reinvented itself about every four years (as the "three sons" got older and left the house, new characters were brought in. In the 10-11 year, one of the "son's" wife had identical triplet boys. For those under 50, and never heard of it, the longest running live action comedy was "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet. (No, not that Ozzie) which ran 14 years, starting in the mid 50s.
