American television sitcom created by Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady, both of whom served as executive producers on the series, along with Steven Molaro. All three also served as head writers. The show premiered on CBS on 24 September 2007 and concluded on 16 May 2019, having broadcast a total of 279 episodes over 12 seasons.
The show is primarily centered on five characters living in Pasadena, California: Leonard Hofstadter and Sheldon Cooper, both physicists at Caltech, who share an apartment; Penny, a waitress and aspiring actress who later becomes a pharmaceutical representative and who lives across the hall; and Leonard and Sheldon's similarly geeky and socially awkward friends and co-workers, aerospace engineer Howard Wolowitz and astrophysicist Raj Koothrappali. The geekiness and intellect of the four guys are contrasted for comic effect with Penny's social skills and common sense.
Over time, supporting characters were promoted to starring roles: Bernadette Rostenkowski, Howard's girlfriend (later his wife), a microbiologist and former part-time waitress alongside Penny; neuroscientist Amy Farrah Fowler, who joined the group after being matched to Sheldon on a dating website (later becoming Sheldon's girlfriend); Stuart Bloom, the cash-strapped owner of the comic book store the characters often visited; Leslie Winkle, a physicist who dated Leonard and Howard; and Emily Sweeney, a dermatologist who dated Raj and had a fascination with the macabre.
