Since 2007 nerds all over the world have been rejoicing over the sitcom hilarity that is The Big Bang Theory. I used to think that the show was a major exaggeration, but as I’ve gotten older I’ve come to realize that there are in fact people out there who have Sheldon Cooper tendencies. You know those people who just can’t help but correct someone about something that is completely arbitrary? Those people who simply can’t go through a conversation without turning it into a lecture? Those people who are so insanely neurotic that it’s comical? They make life interesting, and I’d like to thank them for that.
But even though the show is a major commercial success, the stuff that has happened behind the scenes aren’t so colorful. Check it out.
1. Melissa Rauch doesn’t sound anything like Bernadette in real life.
2. Jim Parsons (Sheldon), Johnny Galecki (Leonard), and Kaley Cuoco (Penny) make a ton of money per episode.
3. The rest of the cast only earns $750,000 per episode.
