No matter what you or anyone else thinks about The Big Bang Theory, it is the most watched television show today and has been for a while. We know, we know, a lot of outspoken people hate it but the ratings aren’t up for debate and there are loads of people tuning in. With that in mind, if you hate the show feel free to leave us a comment telling us why (therichest.com’s Facebook page is a great location to tell us what you think about the show under the link to this article and access lots of our other lists). While you’re there you can also find links to our other articles looking at a bevy of different topics. If you love the show we also urge you to take to the page and let the haters know just how wrong they are, right after you find out more about one of your favorite shows.
When putting together this list we scoured interviews, websites, and any other sources we could think of to find out some surprising stories about the show and its stars. We can’t say that all of our readers will be unaware of the facts we’ve listed as everyone’s base of knowledge is completely different. However, we can assure you that you that the majority of people will be caught unawares by some of what is to come and if you aren’t you must be one of the show’s mega fans. Additionally, we are aware this information is out there for anyone to find but we’re sure that those involved in the production of the show would prefer these facts stay under wraps. So, without any further ado, let’s learn about one of the most popular shows in the world.
15 Roseanne Connections (Actors And Writer)
When it came time to cast The Big Bang Theory you can almost imagine the casting director putting up a board with stars from Roseanne and throwing darts at it since so many actors appeared in both. Don’t get us wrong, it isn’t like they got the kid who played D.J. to come and read for Penny (though imagining that is a lot of fun), but the connections are pretty astounding. Before we list the actors and the roles they played in both shows we’d like to point out why we think this is the case. Creator, writer and executive producer of The Big Bang Theory, Chuck Lorre’s first major job was as a writer, Co-executive producer and supervising producer on Roseanne. It seems clear that he enjoyed working with many of these actors all those years earlier and gave them roles in his biggest series yet.

It is just a fact of life in the pop culture world when something is a success it will soon be followed by others trying to follow in its footsteps. When The Office became a huge hit, other documentary-style comedies (including an American remake) soon followed. When Seinfeld and Friends ruled the airwaves all the new sitcoms starred a group of thirty-something friends, oftentimes even living in New York. Whatever the equation that seemed to make your show a hit, others are going to try to bite your style.
4 Replaced By What?
3 So Much Online Hatred
2 BIG Salaries
1 Laughter Removed Video
Remember when we were talking about how a lot of people, especially online, spout a ton of vitriol towards this show? One of the major pieces of ammunition they use against it is clips that have surfaced online where people have digitally removed the audience’s laughter from the show. Lifeless and unfunny in comparison, we doubt that even the show’s most ardent fans will enjoy the results. To be fair to the show’s staff and fans, though, if the laughter was removed from many sitcoms it would probably significantly alter how enjoyable they are.
