Finally, an engagement ring has been designed that will put Jennifer Aniston’s rock on the back burner.

New Jersey tattoo artist Joe Pagani created an R2-D2-inspired ring for his Star Wars-crazed girlfriend. He commissioned jewelry designer Paul Michael Bieker to create the sapphire and diamond ring and proposed to Emily on Halloween. The force was definitely with Joe: She said yes! READ FULL STORY

'Big Bang Theory' react: Stephen Hawking and Sheldon play Words With Friends

Genius extraordinaire Stephen Hawking lent his voice to tonight’s episode of The Big Bang Theory, adding another notch on the show’s already porous belt of landing extraordinary, geeky guest stars. The theoretical physicist made a guest appearance last season and has evidently since moved on from assessing Sheldon’s math skills to testing his vocabulary knowledge … wait for it …. with Words With Friends. Yup, that’s right, even the most brilliant scientist in the world is susceptible to Zynga’s influence. While Shelly obsesses about his new “friendship” with his idol, Leonard and Penny go from making love to making war.

'Big Bang Theory' react: Halloween episode is more heartfelt than funny

Christmas came early for Big Bang Theory fans tonight with an epic Halloween special guest starring astronaut Buzz Aldrin. The episode didn’t pack as much comedic punch as last week’s laugh fest or past Halloween episodes, but was scattered with heartfelt moments that proved our favorite geeks have cardiae as big as their cerebra.

Howard may have returned from space, but he still yearns for the wide abyss that he was eager to escape not too long ago. As proven by Sheldon and Leonard’s quasi-scientific study, Howard circumvents every topic of discussion to his NASA mission. His obsessive conversation, coupled with his insistence on wearing a NASA shirt every day and passing out autographed glamour shots of himself in uniform gets old fast. Even sweet, little Bernadette, who was a riot tonight, has to put her foot down. Howard later does a spot-on impression of her squeaky, raised intonation. Bernadette’s attempt to deepen her voice and retort, “I don’t sound like that,” was ingenious. READ FULL STORY

Leonard: “Because he’s hard to find. If he was easy to find, the books would be called There’s Waldo.”

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s Howard Wolowitz returning from space! Our favorite NASA astronaut (no offense, Buzz Aldrin) landed home safely during tonight’s episode of The Big Bang Theory, but didn’t quite receive a hero’s welcome. In my favorite episode of the season, Howard was abandoned by all his loved ones, while Penny and Amy proved that girls rule and boys (like autotrophs) drool.

'Big Bang Theory' react: Sheldon shows emotion, sort of, while Howard gets into a pickle from space

BIG-BANG-THEORY-CLIP.jpg

The season 6 premiere of The Big Bang Theory Thursday night brought a tender declaration (courtesy of Peter Parker) by Sheldon, foiled date attempts by Amy and Leonard, and a lot of Skyping from space. The gang is all back for the new season and the first episode left lots of open questions: What will happen with Penny and Leonard? Will Amy and Sheldon’s glacially-slow budding romance move forward? What was up with Raj and Stewart’s Latin jazz moment?

But the biggest focus of the episode was lightyears away from Comic Center. Even the final frontier can’t stop Howard’s mom. While Raj aptly quips at the beginning of the episode that Howard is “Staring down at our planet like a tiny Jewish Greek god,” we soon learn that even from space, Howard’s mom is controlling him (bonus points for her use of my favorite Yiddish word, farkatke). Watch a clip of Howard in space from the episode here.

What did you think of tonight’s new episode? Leave your comments below and speculate on the season!

Nearly 14 billion years ago, a massive explosion in outer space resulted in the formation of the universe. Much more recently, another significant blowup occurred at 8 p.m. Thursdays on CBS.

The Big Bang Theory became a TV phenomenon.

Buoyed by strong viewership (16 million) and an omnipresent run in syndication (where it’s the most popular show on TBS and the No. 1 program among all reruns in adults 18-49 and 25-54),  the 2011-12 season marked TBBT’s most successful to date. Not only did it rank as the comedy’s most-watched year, the CBS series also saw its 18-49 audience jump an astonishing 23 percent from the previous season. With five nominations under its belt going into Emmy weekend — including its second consecutive one for best comedy — is another big bang in store for the four Cal Tech brainiacs and the waitress who loves them?
