It was a long time coming, but Leonard finally put his foot down.
The much-discussed "roommate agreement" between Sheldon and Leonard was brought to an end on Thursday night's "Big Bang Theory" (and just in time for the show's biggest ratings ever, according to CBS).
Leonard was tired of adhering to it, and thus the two were merely acquaintances, exchanging the occasional "'Sup?"

Not bad for a few nerds.
Before I get to Thursday's recap, I'd like to note, "The Big Bang Theory" beat "American Idol" head-to-head from 8 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., in the all-important 18-49 demographic.
The Leonard and Penny story arc certainly seems to be attracting viewers. And this time, it wasn't a dream.

Okay, "Shamy" fans, step aside for a moment. Thursday night's 100th episode was for "Lenny" fans.
Fans who have been hoping that Leonard and Penny would get together again finally got their wish.
With just one glance in her direction, Leonard decided to ask Penny out on a date.

I'll admit that I was extra excited to see that Thursday's return of "The Big Bang Theory" was an episode focusing on "Shamy."
Sheldon being Sheldon, he could care less about Amy's scientific accomplishments, and instead boasted about his 100 Twitter followers... so it looked like he was in the dog house.
And so Leonard stepped in with some tried and true advice: "You skip over any attempt to repair your emotional connection and you win back her affection with an empty financial gesture."

After hosting the People’s Choice Awards for five years in a row, Queen Latifah passed the proverbial baton on Wednesday night to “Big Bang Theory” actress Kaley Cuoco.
Cuoco immediately garnered laughs as her “BBT” character Penny in a pre-recorded sketch. She later took the stage, using special effects, self-deprecating humor and costume changes to wow viewers. But did she succeed?
The envelope says… yes.

Thursday night's episode of "The Big Bang Theory" gave us a couple of big revelations, primarily the fact that Penny used to be a bully in high school (and now, of course, she is friends with the bullied).
We also met Leonard's No. 1 tormentor from high school, Jimmy. But after an unimpressive pitch for an invention, he ended up having to turn to Leonard for help, admitting that he was now the loser, and Leonard the winner.
Sheldon, of course, didn't trust Jimmy one iota (even suggesting killing him in his sleep – theoretically, of course).
