Bazinga! 22 Things You Didn't Know About 'The Big Bang Theory'

'The Big Bang Theory' cast is raking in the cash!

Bazinga! We tune into CBS every week because we love watching four scientists geek out. Even though we sometimes have no idea what Sheldon is saying, it’s still beyond entertaining just to watch him speak. At this point we know that we have at least three seasons left before the show potentially ends (wahhh!) and we're soaking up every ounce of Big Bang Theory that we can. Leonard, Sheldon and Penny have pretty much become family to us.

In case you live under a giant rock and haven’t seen all the articles about the show this week, three of The Big Bang Theory cast members landed some major promotions! Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco and Jim Parsons are officially the three highest paid actors on television right now, bringing in $1 million each an episode. This is what the Friends cast members were making toward the end of the show (although if you adjust for inflation the Friends cast was still making more). Filming on season 8 begins this week and we are impatiently awaiting the Sept. 22 premiere.

To hold us over until the show starts, we have put together 22 awesome facts that you may not have known about the quirky comedy.
