Check Out the Barenaked Ladies New Video for The Big Bang Theory Theme Song

Ed Robertson of Barenaked Ladies

One of the highlights of Comic-Con 2010 was the surprise appearance of the quirky Canadian pop-rock band Barenaked Ladies at The Big Bang Theory panel to sing their catchy theme song to the hit CBS sitcom. (Sample lyric: "Religion or astronomy, Descartes or Deuteronomy, it all started with the big bang.") It was an exhilarating moment for the crowd — and the cast. "To hear thousands of fans screaming and singing along with them was truly moving for me," says Simon Helberg, aka Howard Wolowitz. "Nothing to make a man question his masculinity like crying during an accordion solo."

First Look: Futurama Turns Japanese For Season Finale

Futurama

Futurama was recently picked up for 26 new episodes, which will air on Comedy Central through 2013.

NBC may have passed on its Wonder Woman pilot, but the Amazon princess is still heading to TV.

In the main storyline of the episode, "Scorn of the Star Sapphire," the Caped Crusader teams up with Green Lantern, a perfect warm up to next month's feature film starring Ryan Reynolds.

The Cleveland Show Goes Geek With Season Finale Trip to Comic-Con

The Cleveland Show

The Cleveland Show geeks out for its Season 2 finale when the Brown/Tubbs family heads to Comic-Con (Sunday, 9:30/8:30c, Fox). Tired of being overshadowed by his wife, Donna, Cleveland wants to "find my thing, something that makes me utterly unique." In typical random fashion, he comes up with the idea to write his own comic book and peddle it at the annual pop-culture gathering in San Diego. His creation, Waderman (named for the rubber wading boots he wears), is described by The Simpsons' caustic übernerd Comic Book Guy (in the Best. Cameo. Ever.) as "an aquatic superhero who lacks the ability to swim — apparently he also has a superhuman tolerance for irony."
