PROGRAMMING ALERT: Big Bang Theory Edition

As you should know by now, there was no new Big Bang Theory last night. Something about Halloween, spending time with your kids or going partying... I wouldn't know. I'm single and work an overnight shift. It's a dizzying life I lead, I assure you.

My fast-paced existence aside, you should know that next week's episode will feature two celebrity guest appearances. Bob Newhart reprises his role as Professor Proton, and Bill Nye (did he just wake up from like a 10+ year hibernation? Seriously. Dancing With The Stars and now a sitcom appearance? What's next? Modeling Uggs?) will be playing himself.

VERDICT: Can't say the promo was funny, but the set up has good potential. Definitely worth DVRing but probably not an episode to schedule your Thursday night around.
