Ratings: Jane the Virgin Opens Well; Gotham Down

Gina Rodriguez, Brett Dier

Jane the Virgin scored The CW's best Monday numbers in two years.

The drama opened Monday to 1.6 million viewers and a 0.6 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, making it the network's most-watched show in the timeslot since February 2012 and its best-rated show in the period since Gossip Girl's series finale in December 2012. Jane also improved ...

Question: Let me preface this by saying The Big Bang Theory is one of my favorite shows, and I have been with them since Day 1, but after watching the premiere episodes on the first Monday of the season, I see a very disturbing trend. Sheldon is rapidly becoming the next Fonzie/Urkel. In the early days of the show, Sheldon was odd but likeable, and you always rooted for him. Now as he is being written, he is becoming more and more obnoxious, as evidenced in the way he treated Amy and the others in the two episodes last week. When shows have a breakout star like Jim Parsons, that person becomes the go-to guy in almost every episode, at the expense of the remaining cast members. Am I wrong in my assessment, or do you think a little less Sheldon and maybe a little nicer Sheldon would be better for the show and the audience? — Terry

The Big Bang Theory's Johnny Galecki Talks Season 8 Changes, Conflicts and Wedding Plans

Johnny Galecki

All aboard! The Big Bang Theory hits the road in Season 8 — but not for long after Sheldon's (Jim Parsons) 45-day cross-country train ride goes off the rails. While on a mission to find himself, the socially awkward genius actually finds himself trapped in Kingman, Arizona, with all his belongings stolen. He calls roommate Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and girlfriend Amy (Mayim Bialik) for help. "Sheldon can certainly still ruin Leonard's day," Galecki says with a laugh. "But there's a degree of fatherly patience that Leonard has with Sheldon that I find touching."

8 Things That Will and 2 Things That (Probably) Won't Happen on Big Bang Theory Season 8

Jim Parsons

A multi-year renewal not only means job security (and $1 million an episode at that), but allows for long-term story planning. For The Big Bang Theory producers, however, it means business as usual.

"The three-year pickup is great and wonderful, but it's not going to change what we do," executive producer Steve Molaro tells TVGuide.com. "The way we've done things has worked out pretty well so far!"

That method means never looking further ahead than the episode in front of them. So, even with Penny (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting) and Leonard (Johnny Galecki) engaged now, it'll be a while before you get a Save the Date.

"I don't think we feel pressure to hit these milestones," Molaro says. "I'm sure some fans want ...

Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting Reveals How She Found Out About Her Nude Photo Leak

Kaley Cuoco

For Big Bang Theory star  Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, getting a Google alert about naked photos is a common occurrence. But she says she had to act fast earlier this month when she found out that, this time, the pictures were real.

"I totally have Google Alerts that come to my phone, so anything that my name pops up it comes to my phone because I'm, like, obsessed. I need to know what's going on," the actress explained to Jimmy Kimmel. "So, every day, every day there's like 30 'Kaley Cuoco nude photos' [alerts]. It's been going on for years. This one came up ... and then I started getting emails like, 'No, there are some real ones going around' and I looked and was like, 'Oh my God, there are some real ones.'"

What will Emma and Hook's dating life be like on Once Upon a Time? — Val
The good news: The producers are going to let them go out somewhere other than Granny's Diner. The bad news: "It's going to be tricky for the two of them," executive producer Adam Horowitz says. "Just because we saw their feelings reach a new level at the end of last season doesn't mean that that's the end of the story." And Emma may be the problem. "Emma is obviously a person who has a tough time trusting people and letting her guard down," executive producer Edward Kitsis says. "Sometimes you may feel something for somebody but your feelings hold you back."

Premise: Two nerdy physicists share an apartment and an unlikely friendship with their beautiful neighbor with whom one of them is infatuated. Like the universe after the big bang, the show's popularity expanded, thanks to breakout star Jim Parsons, along with the chemistry among the friends and the developing romance between Leonard and Penny. The addition of Melissa Rauch and Mayim Bialik in later seasons also enhanced the stories and relationships of the leads.
