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).

Thursday night's "Big Bang Theory" was a pretty momentous occasion for Sheldon, to say the least.
Our favorite geek now has his first girlfriend.
Amy forced the issue by accepting a date with Stuart, the comic book store clerk. As he said, "She didn't look through me with soul-sucking, ball-shriveling hatred and contempt. I like that in a woman."

Gawker reports that “Big Bang Theory” star Simon Helberg and former “Two and a Half Men” star Charlie Sheen now have more in common than CBS: Helberg just purchased Charlie’s old digs.
The renovated L.A. mansion has been on the market since 2009, when Charlie and then-wife Brooke Mueller listed it for nearly $3.7 million.
Real estate blog The Real Estalker reports that Helberg and wife Jocelyn Towne paid just $2.9 million for the Mediterranean-style abode last month.

As if Sheldon didn't have enough to contend with, he had to deal with a bird outside of his window on Thursday's "Big Bang Theory."
His ornithophobia got the best of him, even causing him to use a device that cracked his windows, instead of getting rid of the creature.
Thankfully, Amy and Bernadette came to the rescue, explaining that he had to get to know the bird to get over his fear, "just like with the mailman."

Playboy interviewed "Big Bang Theory” star Kaley Cuoco for the December issue’s 20 questions section, and the actress didn’t hold back. The newly-engaged Cuoco shared about her love of nerds, dating her co-star, and pursuing men.
Cuoco finds that men are intimidated by her, so she says, “I have to take the reins.” A self-proclaimed “b-h,” the actress details her dating strategy: “I’ll go up to anybody and say, ‘You’re absolutely friggin’ adorable. Let’s go out.’ They usually look at me with giant scared 'Ren and Stimpy' eyes.”
The confident 25-year-old adds, "I have to be honest: I don’t think they’re going to say no.”
