“The Big Bang Theory” became a cult classic despite some who questioned the show’s chances of survival after it debuted in 2007. The series began about geeky physicist roommates portrayed by Jim Parsons and Johnny Galecki and expanded to include their friends, girlfriends and then wives.

The series leaves on a high as one of television’s most popular shows.
