The Big Bang Theory is a comedy about brilliant physicists, Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Sheldon (Jim Parsons), who are the kind of “beautiful minds” that understand how the universe works. But none of that genius helps them interact with people, especially women.

All this begins to change when a free-spirited beauty named Penny (Kaley Cuoco) moves in next door. Sheldon, Leonard’s roommate, is quite content spending his nights playing Klingon Boggle with their socially dysfunctional friends, fellow Cal Tech scientists Wolowitz (Simon Helberg) and Koothrappali (Kunal Nayyar). However, Leonard sees in Penny a whole new universe of possibilities … including love.

Emmy Award-nominated Two and a Half Men is a comedy about men, women, sex, dating, divorce, mothers, single parenthood, sibling relations, surrogate families, money and, most importantly, love. More specifically, it’s about the lives of two brothers, one brother’s son and the many women who surround them.

Charlie Harper (Charlie Sheen) is a well-to-do bachelor with a house at the beach, a Mercedes in the garage and an easy way with women. His casual Malibu lifestyle is interrupted when his tightly wound brother, Alan (Jon Cryer), and Alan’s son, Jake (Angus T. Jones), come to stay with him. Complicating matters further are Charlie and Alan’s narcissistic, emotionally toxic mother, Evelyn (Holland Taylor); Alan’s deeply neurotic ex-wife, Judith (Marin Hinkle) and Charlie’s domineering, unapologetically blue-collar housekeeper, Berta (Conchata Ferrell).

Despite the complexities of their lives and their own strained relationship, Charlie and Alan have one thing in common–they both love Jake and want what’s best for him. As a result, they manage to create a little family unit that promises to make each of them a better man.
