Actress Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting's dream came true when she received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame near her late 8 Simple Rules co-star John Ritter. The Big Bang Theory actress unveiled her star on Los Angeles' fabled sidewalk on Wednesday (29Oct14), and she was delighted to see that her request to have the marker placed near her former TV dad Ritter was honoured.
Following the ceremony, Cuoco-Sweeting told Entertainment Tonight, "They (organisers) asked if I had a preference and I said, 'Wow, if I had any dream it would be near John Ritter's'. I'm going to go find it after this and give it a big kiss."
8 Simple Rules was Cuoco-Sweeting's big break on television, and the actress noted Ritter was "adorable" and "one of my favourite people".
Following his death from an undiagnosed aortic dissection in 2003, he was written out of the TV series, but studio bosses cancelled the series one season later due to low ratings.
Actor Jim Parsons has been cast in the lead role of animated TV special Elf: Buddy's Musical Christmas.

What is a television addict? When asked that question, you would probably say, "someone who is addicted to TV." But aren't we all, at least a little bit? You can pretty much watch TV at any given point of day: on your television, on your phone, on your computer, on the train...everywhere. Maybe there are varying degrees of addicts. For those of you who are unsure if they're a TV addict, let's address the signs.
1. You can often be found just like this:
2. You have a special little dance you do right before a new episode of one of your favorite shows:
But it's a dance you can do from your couch, because the show is ABOUT TO START!
3. You watch everything you can. So when you get a new show to binge watch, this is your exact state of mind:
4. You're on Netflix so often, you don't even notice their weird categories anymore:
5. You love TV so much, you find yourself sharing what you're watching way too often:
6. When your friends ask if you think you watch too much TV, this is your response:
7. Nothing is more terrifying than the idea of your TV or computer not working during show time:
8. You don't know what to do with yourself when you don't have something to watch:
That brief period of the year where NOTHING seems to be new on TV. Re-run central is hell. You've seen the same episode of Criminal Minds 15 times, but you're not going to just turn your TV off.
9. You've been caught hiding at a party, watching TV alone:
10. Date nights with you boyfriend/girlfriend are spent exactly like this:
Them = bored stiff. You = enraptured.
11. Anytime a family member says "what should we do?" you suggest TV:
12. You've found that after all your time watching TV, you're up for watching anything, at least once:
You have a serious love/hate relationship with commercials.
13.When someone tries talking when your show is on, you're known to scream:
14. You might have realized you have a bit of a problem:
15. But it's too late now for you to fix it, so you plan on spending the rest of your life like this:

Actor Johnny Galecki is celebrating after finally kicking his smoking habit after 25 years. The Big Bang Theory star has been a nicotine lover since he was a teenager, but he ended his addiction cold turkey earlier this month (Sep14).
He tells U.S. late night host David Letterman, "I smoked for about 25 years and with utter reckless abandon; I didn't keep track of how much. It was terrible..."
And he's already noticing the health benefits of being nicotine free.
He adds, "I feel great. I'm running twice as much as I used to, my taste buds are returning, I had an orange Tic Tac at work the other day (and) it was nearly orgasmic. I was like, 'Oh my God, that's the best! What is that, a $100 gourmet Tic Tac? That's incredible'.
"It was never a social thing for me, it kind of served my anti-social tendencies. Now I have to sit through dinners for the entirety of them without the excuse to go cater to my filthy addiction outside on the corner for a minute."
"I didn't know I was in a feud until I went on the computer. I thought I was just doing a comedy bit. So I Googled Mayim Bialik because I remember she was on Howard Stern about six months ago and I remember being very impressed and moved by the interview. So I relistened (sic) to that and watched every show she ever did, I'm in love with her, I want to be her best friend..." TV host Rosie O'Donnell has dismissed rumours she is feuding with actress Mayim Bialik after she disagreed with the Big Bang Theory star's criticism of hit Disney movie Frozen.
"There's been a very depressing and distressing thing that's happened in the news... Mayim Bialik from Blossom and The Big Bang Theory has come out against the movie Frozen... I feel that Frozen is the best Disney movie ever made. I've seen it 250 times. I can say it, I have every word memorised, (and) I love it like the rest of America." Outspoken comedienne and mother-of-five Rosie O'Donnell strongly disagrees with actress Mayim Bialik's heavy criticism of the Oscar-winning children's movie. Bialik took aim at the Disney film on her blog earlier this week (begs15Sep14), accusing filmmakers of setting a bad example to young girls by featuring female characters with "Barbie doll proportions".
