“The Big Bang Theory” will return to CBS on Thursday, September 27 at 8:00 p.m. Eastern time, and we now have some more goodies to share when it comes to both the title of the season premiere along with some photos.
Fans of this show already know that it can be sometimes hard to figure out what the elaborate titles here are referring to, but “The Date Night Variable” seems to be pretty self-explanatory. Some of our couples are probably going to find a way to spend some time together, and all of their dates may end up leaving Raj out in the cold in some way. Or, he could be taking things to a new and pretty surprising level.
Is this Raj crashing Leonard and Penny’s date? It’s hard to say for sure, but Johnny Galecki’s character does not seem altogether thrilled with him being there. (Plus, he’s also sitting in Sheldon’s spot.) Meanwhile, Raj just seems to be drunk out of his mind given his posture and his close proximity to Penny — who has apparently forgotten one of the last times that she and Raj got pretty drunk when spending time together. (Then again, this seems to be a dark stain on the show’s history who most people choose to forget.)
Also in this episode, we are going to see new series regular Kevin Sussman in action as the owner of the comic book store in Stuart. He has been a frequent presence throughout the show, and with this promotion he is expected to appear in at least seven episodes this season (and quite possibly more than that).
What do you think some of these photos suggest for this episode? Do you want to find out some more news pertaining to Leonard and Penny? If so, be sure to check out the story over here.
