2 The Big Bang Theory The Big Bang Theory The Big Bang Theory is an American sitcom created by Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady, both of whom serve as executive producers on the series, along with Steven Molaro, and also some wasted guest stars from time to time.

Not nearly as good a "Seinfeld" or "Friends" but still the best sitcom the 2000's.

The Big Bang Theory every time! Funniest thing I ever ever saw!

The first five seasons were fest, now it's a disaster!

Best Sitcom ever, without a question. How I Met Your Mother is just a rip-off. - PositronWildhawk
