"I was stuffing invitations in the last episode we shot, so we're moving closer to the wedding," says a very excited Melissa Rauch (Bernadette). But the actress admits she had a bit of anxiety when she remembered the fate of George's fiancée, Susan, on Seinfeld, who died from licking toxic wedding-invitation envelopes in 1996. "I didn't actually...

Big Bang Theory
Of all the possible Big Bang Theory couplings, do any of them make for stranger bedfellows than Raj and Penny?
"I really don't think so! Especially if my reaction means anything," executive producer Steve Molaro tells TVGuide.com. "I remember Chuck [Lorre], Bill [Prady] and I were in the writers' room breaking the season finale and that story of [Raj and Penny sleeping together] came up. I think I had a strong reaction to it — facially. I was like, 'Really?!' I think Chuck was so amused by how strong my reaction was that he was like, 'Well, now we have to do it!'"

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."

The Big Bang Theory received its first nomination for comedy series Thursday, but the showrunner/executive producer has no clue which six episodes the show has submitted for the academy to review.
