11 TV Scientists We Love!


Bernadette Rostenkowski-Wolowicz (Melissa Rauch) The Big Bang Theory

Dialogue Sample: “I'm too small for Twister. And roller coasters. And sitting with my feet on the floor. Hope you enjoyed the prenatal cigarettes, Mom.”

Made the List Because: Ooh! Scandal! Two ladies from Big Bang make the list and NO dudes from the show did. Why? Honestly, these women are more professional, work-centered, and don’t let their egos get in the way of their work. Bernie, specifically, is bomb. Her PhD in microbiology has taken her from Cheesecake Factory waitress to a cushy job that pays better than hubby Howard’s. Her progress alone is worthy of inclusion on this list.
