How Far The Big Bang Theory Cast Really Got In School

It's no secret that smarts are the main punchline on The Big Bang Theory. Not only does the CBS sitcom center around a misfit group of PhD physicists and aerospace engineers (excluding Penny's blonde moments), but the series has cameos from actual accomplished intellectuals. Think: Ira Flatow, the prominent science radio host, and Bill Nye, every '90s kids favorite scientist.

Like comfort food for the brain, it's a tried-and-true friends-as-family multi-camera laugh-track-sweetened sitcom (a la Friends or How I Met Your Mother). But it also brought something fresh to the table in its unabashed celebration of geek culture and the hard sciences. When was the last time there was a sitcom — let alone a smash hit one that ran for a staggering 12 seasons on network television — about super-genius physicists who worked in and around the think tank that is Caltech? (The answer: Never.)

    Young Sheldon creators should make way for a new Big Bang Theory spinoff: Hot Raj! British-born Indian actor Kunal Nayyar studied at the prestigious Royal Shakespeare Company before landing the breakthrough role of Raj Koothrappali in 2007, one year after graduating, per IMDb. "Breakthrough" may be an understatement since, according to The Hollywood Reporter, he embodied the socially anxious astrophysicist character for 12 years and 12 seasons before the beloved mega-hit CBS sitcom wrapped in 2019.
