Big Bang Theory: Star Wars Reunion, Hope for Amy and Sheldon

The Big Bang Theory, one of the TV shows most at home at Comic-Con, kicked off its panel on Friday with a clip from the Season 7 episode in which Sheldon (Jim Parsons), Leonard (Johnny Galecki), Howard (Simon Helberg) and Raj (Kunal Nayyar) try (and fail) to get tickets to the annual event.

Perhaps fittingly, the cast wasn't actually wasn't in attendance. Instead, the panel was only made up of the show's writers and executive producers Bill Prady and Steve Molaro, who shared some fun facts and a few details about the upcoming eighth season:

How Long Can The Big Bang Theory Go On?

The Big Bang Theory has done what few shows on television have done before: It has actually grown in viewership since its first season by more than 10 million viewers — and it keeps getting bigger.

The CBS comedy closed out last season with 18.6 million viewers and a 6.2 rating in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, making it the No. 1 comedy in both measures, a feat unheard of for a show heading into its seventh season these days. The ratings are only topped by the show's eight Emmy nominations, including Comedy Series, Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for Jim Parsons and Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for Mayim Bialik.

Exclusive Sneak Peek: Star Trek: The Next Generation's Second Season Finally Hits Blu-ray

Strap in for some new-old voyages of the Starship Enterprise. Another 22 episodes will be in your orbit when the second season of Star Trek: The Next Generation reenters the stratosphere on Blu-ray and DVD on Tuesday. And, hey, it's only been 22 years since the season's finale and 15 years since it was released on VHS! That's like nothing in light years, right?

Someone should go ask Data (Brent Spiner). Let's just call this set his showpiece. The most exciting entry (of many) in this set's special features is an extended version of the episode "The Measure of Man," in which Data must prove to a Starfleet court (with the help of Patrick Stewart's loyal, fatherly Captain Picard as his "lawyer") that he's a sentient being in order to prevent some corporate-paid mad-as-heck scientist from cracking open his head in order to study his positronic brain. This isn't just a longer episode — some scenes are shot entirely differently than in the broadcast version. Some you've never seen before. (You purists also get the original version and a hybrid copy with more extra material.)

Thursday TV: Brilliant Community & Parks, a Live 30 Rock, More

Welcome to May sweeps (albeit still in April) and, more important, the countdown to the end of the official broadcast season on May 23. Meaning an end, for now, to those pesky repeats and the start-and-stop scheduling of favorite shows. Reason enough to celebrate? Wait until you see what NBC has in store for you tonight (or at least for those choosy few who gravitate toward the network's better Thursday night comedies).

Cheers & Jeers: The Big Bang Theory — The Next Vituperation

Cheers to The Big Bang Theory for finding an out-of-this-world new archenemy for Sheldon.

Just when Jim Parsons' geek god had finally forgiven Wil Wheaton for failing to show up at a Star Trek convention years ago—the actor apologized and gave Sheldon his last Wesley Crusher action figure—Next Generation castmate Brent Spiner crossed the champion grudge-holder. His offense: tearing the aforementioned toy out of its original packaging.
