CTV on the Go: 'The Big Bang Theory' adds a new regular, 'The New Normal' offers a sneak peek and 'The Listener' says goodbye to a main cast member
CTV on the Go
Here's a daily rundown of the latest buzz from your favourite CTV shows, because if you’re on the go, you still need to know!
"The Big Bang Theory" adds a new regular
"The Big Bang Theory" has found one more geek. According to a report by Deadline, Kevin Sussman, who plays comic book store manager Stuart on the hit CTV comedy, has been promoted to a series regular.
Sussman first appeared on "The Big Bang Theory" in Season 2, and has been in a number of episodes since.
It will be interesting to see whether the decision to expand Sussman’s role will have any impact on the newly formed relationship between Sheldon and Amy. In Season 5, Sussman’s character asked Amy out, compelling Sheldon to take action and make a move before it was too late.
"The New Normal" offers a sneak peek
Add together two men with booming careers and a broke single girl and you get CTV’s newest family.
CTV’s highly anticipated new comedy "The New Normal" gets a sneak peek online preview at CTV.ca. The advance digital screening begins Wednesday, Aug. 29 before its television premiere on Tuesday, Sept. 11 at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT, immediately following new hit comedy "Anger Management."
"The Listener" says goodbye to a main cast member
One thing was certain heading into Wednesday night’s climactic episode of "The Listener" – a cast member would die. That cast member was resident doctor Olivia Fawcett (played by Mylène Dinh-Robic), who succumbed to a deadly airborne virus.
"Olivia was a great character and one that worked so well in the show previously but now that Toby’s moved into the police force, we were using her a bit less and didn’t want to just let a character fall away … and we said we should do something to really honour that character and really create an emotional moment that would be explosive for the audience as well to send her off with," said executive producer Peter Mohan.
