All three also serve as head writers.
The show is centered on five characters living in Pasadena, California: roommates Leonard Hofstadter and Sheldon Cooper; Penny, a waitress and aspiring actress who lives across the hall; and Leonard and Sheldon’s equally geeky and socially awkward friends and co-workers, mechanical engineer Howard Wolowitz and astrophysicist Raj Koothrappali. The geekiness and intellect of the four guys is contrasted for comic effect with Penny’s social skills and common sense.
Over time, supporting characters have been promoted to starring roles: Leslie Winkle, a physicist colleague at Caltech and, at different times, a lover of both Leonard and Howard; Bernadette Rostenkowski, Howard’s girlfriend (later his wife), a microbiologist and former part-time waitress alongside Penny; neuroscientist Amy Farrah Fowler, who joins the group after being matched to Sheldon on a dating website (and later becomes Sheldon’s girlfriend), and Stuart Bloom, the cash-strapped owner of the comic book store the characters often visit.
On January 12, 2011, CBS announced that the series had been renewed for an additional three years, extending it through the 2013–14 season.

Big BangTheory Season 6 Bloopers

Big Bang Theory Season 6 Bloopers.
Dr. Leonard Leakey Hofstadter (Johnny Galecki) is an experimental physicist with an IQ of 173 who received his Ph.D. when he was 24 years old. He shares an apartment with colleague and friend Sheldon Cooper. The writers have toyed with a romance between him and neighbor Penny, with their unresolved sexual tension being a major force for drama.
Penny (family name is not revealed) (Kaley Cuoco), (appeared in all but two episodes in season 4, but credited for the episodes in which she did not appear) is Leonard and Sheldon’s neighbor across the hallway. Originally from Omaha, Nebraska, she is a waitress at the local Cheesecake Factory and also an aspiring actress. Penny is very outgoing, kind, and assertive, her personality contrasting with those of the guys.
Dr. Sheldon Lee Cooper (Jim Parsons) is a theoretical physicist with an I.Q. of 187, possessing a B.S., a M.S., a M.A., a Ph.D., and aSc.D. Originally from East Texas, he was a child prodigy, starting college at the age of 11, and receiving his first Ph.D at age 16. He is calculating, cynical, and asexual. Sheldon exhibits a strict adherence to routine, a lack of understanding of irony, sarcasm and humor, and a complete lack of humility; these characteristics are the main sources of his character’s humor and the center of a number of episodes.
Dr. Amy Farrah Fowler (Mayim Bialik) is a neurobiologist who was determined to be Sheldon’s perfect match by an online dating site that Howard and Raj secretly signed him up on. Amy is very plain, and the way she carries herself makes her the female version of Sheldon. Amy was Sheldon’s “friend, who’s a girl, but not his girlfriend” until they became official during The Flaming Spittoon Acquisition. Amy became the latest member of the gang, and quickly became best friends with Penny and Bernadette, who taught her to be more like a normal girl and do girly stuffs with her. Amy admires Penny a lot and calls her her “Bestie”.
Dr. Bernadette Maryann Rostenkowski-Wolowitz (Melissa Rauch) is a microbiologist that used to work at The Cheesecake Factory with Penny to pay for her grad school. Penny set her up with Howard and the two found out that they have the same issue with their overprotective mothers. This similarity brought the two together. They got in a relationship which ended when Bernadette found out that Howard was having cyber sex with Glacinda the troll. Not long after, they decided to rekindle the relationship, and the two got engaged during The Engagement Reaction. Bernadette has a squeaky voice and when she is angry, she sounds exactly like Mrs. Wolowitz.
Howard Joel Wolowitz (Simon Helberg) is a Jewish engineer at Caltech’s Department of Applied Physics who often hangs out at Leonard and Sheldon’s apartment. Unlike Sheldon,Leonard, and Raj, Howard lacks a doctorate. He defends this by pointing out that he has a master’s degree in Engineering from MIT. Howard fancies himself a ladies’ man and provides outrageous pick-up lines whenever a female is present.
Dr. Rajesh Ramayan “Raj” Koothrappali (Kunal Nayyar) is Howard Wolowitz’s best friend, and yet another genius of the group; his name is usually shortened to “Raj”. He is originally from New Delhi, India, and he works in the Physics department at Caltech, where his area of expertise is particle astrophysics. Raj is extremely shy when it comes to dealing with women; he is unable to speak to them unless he drinks alcohol or is on medication. When Penny is around, Raj usually whispers what he wants to say to Howard or Leonard, who then responds out loud.
Stuart Bloom (Kevin Sussman): Stuart runs the comic book store that the guys frequently go to. He is also a nerd, but he has a talent for drawing, is a graduate of Rhode Island School of Design and possesses a few more social skills than they do. During Stuart’s first appearance, the guys brought Penny along to the store and he managed to ask her on a date. The date went fine until Stuart was dragged into discussing comic books by Sheldon. On a second date with Penny, Stuart asked for Leonard’s advice, but feeling threatened, Leonard ultimately gave him bad advice. The date went fine, but when Penny was getting romantic with Stuart she accidentally called him “Leonard,” leaving him devastated.
We ALL are ONE!!
LAUGHTER is the best MEDICINE!!
