He Lost the Battle & Saw the Wars

Kelsey Grammer is the quintessential sitcom actor. But the crazy thing is that Kelsey Grammer was not that far off from not being a beloved TV star, as revealed in a recent chat with Conan O’Brien.

FYI If you have not seen the latest episode of The Big Bang Theory, watch the show before watching the deleted scene below.

After that special Big Bang Theory season 11 finale last night, it’s time to let everything sink in. All of the cameos, the story, surprises, plus the fact that this wonderful sitcom has been on the air for 11 seasons. Will season 12 be the final year? The answer is very likely yes.

Right now–as in right now–watch a very sweet deleted scene from last night’s episode. Trust me. The showrunners have been promoting this moment throughout today for fans everywhere to check out. And for good reason.

Few other sitcoms these days pull the heartstrings quite like The Big Bang Theory.

Congratulations Amy & Sheldon (ShAmy) in the fictional world and, once again, RIP Stephen Hawking in the real world. At least for a brief moment in time, those two worlds were joined together.
