CBS to Air Big Bang Theory Christmas Special Later Tonight

Roll in the Christmas specials! The world (of avid TV fans anyway) eagerly awaits the Christmas episodes of things like Downton Abbey and Doctor Who. And of course, as people are marking off days until the seasonal episode of their favorite shows, CBS have released the trailer for the seasonal edition of The Big Bang Theory. Sheldon and his crew are up to their usual meant-to-be-nerdy, slightly grating antics in The Santa Simulation.

As the boys gather for “a rousing game of Dungeons and Dragons”, the girls will have a night out and try to find a date for the awkward Koothrappali a date (remember children, gender appropriate activities are a must in sitcom universe). Can you guess where this is heading by now?

Surprise, surprise, Sheldon hates Christmas for a number of snooty reasons (he hates the overuse of words like ‘tis and ‘twas and the custom of giving only one stocking, when everyone knows they should come in pairs), but a present from Leonard will prompt a Christmas Carol-esque flashback into Christmasses past. Overall, it looks like it’s going to be an eventful Christmas for the most infamous nerds on TV. The show airs tonight at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
