"Big Bang Theory" stars Kaley Cuoco, Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch paid homage to the jiggle-TV chestnut in a behind-the-scenes photo posted to Cuoco's Instagram account on Thursday, enlisting Wil Wheaton in a behind-the-scenes photo. In the photo, Rauch, Bialik and Cuoco are seen surrounding Wheaton in a rough approximation of the "Charlie's Angels" fingers-as-gun-barrels pose.

It's hard to imagine The Big Bang Theory without Kaley Cuoco, but it seems it almost didn't happen when the show started.

The actress has opened up ahead of the show's final episode about why she was originally rejected from the series, explaining how Penny didn't initially appear in the pilot.

"In the first pilot, the character of Penny [originally named Katie] was not as appealing as that proverbial girl next door," Warner Bros president and chief content officer Peter Roth told TV Insider.

"It was not the actress [Amanda Walsh] but rather the conceit of the character. Fortunately, Nina Tassler, then-president of CBS Entertainment, realised we had something very special and said, 'Let's do it again'."

I was too young, which I love saying because I don't get to say that I'm too young anymore. [Laughs] Then, a year later, I heard they were doing it again, and they brought me back in to read for Penny."

Earlier this week, the show revealed the release date of its finale, with the hour-long episode airing on May 16.

The cast members have certainly been emotional about saying goodbye to the series, star Mayim Bialik recently speaking about her "grief" in leaving the show behind.

"All things must end, even the good things must end," she said. "I have to be in acceptance of what is, instead of lamenting what was and fearing what's next."

Georgia Engel, who played the soft-spoken Georgette Baxter on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” died Friday in Princeton, N.J. She was 70.

Engel was Emmy nominated twice for outstanding continuing performance by a supporting actress in a comedy series for her role as Georgette, girlfriend and later wife to Ted Baxter. She joined “Mary Tyler Moore” in 1972, during its third season.
