Chuck Lorre is my kind of guy

OK, I admit it. I am addicted to The Big Bang Theory. Last week's bit on X10 devices was freaking hilarious:

And it looks like they even took the time to create a Wolowizard YouTube user to upload the video that Howard Wolowitz shot at the Physics symposium on his cell phone.


Not only do I think it is *the* funniest show on TV right now (and now that the writer's strike is over we finally get new episodes!), the vanity cards at the end of each episode are equally entertaining. I think Chuck Lorre is someone I'd love to shoot the sh*t with over a pint. The vanity card for last night's episode piqued my interest enough to find the (un?)censored version and I am glad I ventured to Chuck's site. I have always wondered exactly what it would take to write a hit sitcom, and now I have a step-by-step manual.

Like I said... my kind of guy.

Is there a contact email for this
guy. Both Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men are my favorite shows.
You do know that Big Bang Theory suffered due to the strike. It is on the fence for being renewed. We need
to write to the network. It is a fantastically funny show. I like how they have returned to an ensemble show on Two and a Half Men, with stories about each character. Charlie Sheen cannot carry the whole show.

Hmm...maybe you can find a contact email on the official website or in the fan forums.

I knew at the beginning there was a question as to whether it would be picked up but I thought it was picking up steam. I sure hope they renew it as it is my favorite show on TV!

You might enjoy this entertaining audio interview with Bill Prady, co-creator of "The Big Bang Theory." Prady's other writing and producing credits include "Gilmore Girls," "Muppets in Space," "Dream On," and even an episode of "Star Trek Voyager."

Thanks for the link, Bob! That was a very interesting (and entertaining) interview!
