This Thursday marks another episode of the hit CBS series The Big Bang Theory and the hilarity is expanding beyond just the core group of friends we’re used to seeing, it’s dragging in a couple of science legends — one real and one pretend.
Bob Newhart will be reprising his role as Professor Proton on The Bang Theory but he’s going to be matched up against his real life counterpart and inspiration in Bill Nye the Science Guy. We knew about this episode happening for some time now but we finally get to see it this week.
