The Big Bang Theory leaves on a high as one of television's most popular shows. The finale was followed by a behind-the-scenes look at the show in Unraveling the Mystery: A Big Bang Farewell with Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco as hosts.
As, The Big Bang Theory, the enduringly popular series prepares to bow out Thursday with an hour-long finale, the question is raised anew: Will viewers, awash in such creatively bold and sophisticated players as Atlanta and Veep, accept another traditional sitcom?
The Big Bang Theory episode taped on Tuesday will air as the last half of a two-part finale on May 16. Also airing that night is Unraveling the Mystery: A Big Bang Farewell, with Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco hosting a behind-the-scenes look back at the show.
The Big Bang Theory director Mark Cendrowski said unlike other shows promising an explosive climax, the show will not be 'the end' as we know it for Sheldon, Amy, Leonard, Penny, Howard, Bernadette and Raj.
Jim Parsons, who plays the eccentric, almost always right theoretical physicist Sheldon Cooper in the hit CBS series The Big Bang Theory, said he feels the team had "chewed all the meat off this bone".
