Tonight, there is going to be a chance for those of you who are enormous fans of “The Big Bang Theory” to catch another all-new episode over on CBS, one revolving around Sheldon having yet another fit of jealousy. The only thing that seems, at least on paper, to make this one a little bit different from all of the others, is that it is tied to Bert the geologist receiving a major award that Sheldon does not think that he’s qualified to receive. There’s been a little bit of conflict between Sheldon and Bert since his arrival on the series, but never to a huge degree.
So when are we going to see the show return following this episode? While not officially confirmed just yet by the network, all signs point to seeing Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, and the rest of the gang on Thursday, December 1 with the next new installment.
We know that there is no episode for sure airing next week, largely because it would be ridiculous for CBS to try to do something like that. What in the world would be the point of it? The only thing that you are really accomplishing in making this decision is that you are hurting ratings. Luckily, there’ll be a repeat of last year’s Thanksgiving episode at that time, so rest assured, you will still have something to watch.
Moving forward this season, there are several storylines that are probably going to need to be addressed in some shape or form. For example, we’re going to have a chance to see eventually Bernadette and Howard have their child, and we’ve also got a guest appearance coming from Christopher Lloyd of “Back to the Future” fame. We’d also like to see more of Raj’s love life after his impromptu date on this past installment.
