In the world of television shows, competition has always been fierce. Not only that, but the audience has also been demanding. They either like you and watch every episode or ignore you altogether. This is precisely why the success of the show “The Big Bang Theory” is such a big deal. It’s one show that audiences like so much, that it has managed to stay on the air until today.
The Big Bang Theory is currently recognized as the longest-running multi-camera sitcom of all time, having run for 12 amazing seasons. One of the highest-rated shows on CBS, this show centers around the lives of scientists and good friends who are doing their best to navigate social situations that everyone can relate with: falling in love, dealing with parents, pursuing a career and everything in between.
The Big Bang Theory stars Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Jim Parsons, Melissa Rauch, Mayim Bialik, Kunal Nayyar, Simon Helberg, and many more. Together, this ensemble has delivered a show that is praised by the audience and critics alike. In fact, according to figures from Statista, the show averaged by as much as 20.4 million viewers per episode during its seventh season. Meanwhile, the show has also received 52 Emmy nominations and 10 Emmy wins.
Today, The Big Bang Theory is preparing to say goodbye to audiences across the globe as it airs its final season. There is no need to be sad though.

I waited a long time to get this car, and the only reason I didn’t, was I thought people would think I was a show-off, or pretentious or whatever other words one can use to put you in a box.
