Chuck Lorre unveils his 600th vanity card across The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon and Mom
The mega-producer offered a two-parter for Vanity Card #600. Lorre has been writing vanity cards across his six comedies, including Mike & Molly, Dharma & Greg and Two and a Half Men. "As I write this, my six hundredth vanity card, I find myself fantasizing about a time, far in the future, when my cards have inexplicably become the scriptural basis for a new religion," writes Lorre. "Like in the classic sci-fi novel A Canticle For Leibowitz, each card would be studied, pondered and argued over by hermetic monks who fervently believe them to be documents of divine origin. In this imagined future, chaste and smelly men in threadbare woolen robes happily devote their entire lives trying to understand the entirely not esoteric words of me. And this would go on for thousands of years. Generation after generation of completely misguided wisdomseekers would write treatises on pointless essays that I wrote in a hurry (like this one)."

Young Sheldon stars help launch the The Young Sheldon STEM Initiative
Chuck Lorre is teaming with Young Sheldon executive producers Jim Parsons and Steve Molaro to help boost interest in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. “To those of us involved in making it, Young Sheldon is more than a television series,” said Lorre. “At its heart, it’s a story about potential. When the education of a child is supported, there is no limit to what that child might eventually achieve. We hope that in some small way, this program gives these public schools more STEM educational tools in the classroom for teachers to nurture and ignite the curiosity of students who will ultimately become our future leaders and scholars.”
