But on Thursday night's Big Bang, Chuck took the moment to honor one of the biggest icons the science fiction world has ever known: the late Leonard Nimoy.
He wrote simply:
We're sad to report that Daniel von Bargen has passed away.
The character actor best known for his role as George's boss Mr. Kruger on Seinfeld died on Tuesday after a long battle with an unspecified illness.
It is not known at this time whether von Bargen's death is connected with his attempt to take his own life with a self-inflicted gunshot wound just three years ago.
Also known for his turns on Malcolm in the Middle and in movies like Super Troopers and O Brother Where Art Thou?, von Bargen was often unforgettable even in supporting roles.

Hollywood lost a legend when Leonard Nimoy passed away on Friday.
One actor in particular was especially hurt by the death, and is opening up about his relationship with the Star Trek star.
Zachary Quinto famously portrayed Spock in the J.J. Abrams adaptation of the sci-fi classic, and now he's speaking out about meeting Leonard for the first time and how their relationship flourished.
In a recent interview, Zachary called Leonard a father figure to him, saying:
She's really handling this as well as anyone possibly could.
The passing of Robin Williams left millions of people with a broken heart, but no one suffered as much as the actor's children.
But Zelda Williams stepped out in a rare appearance on Friday with her mother Marsha Garces for the Noble Awards in Beverly Hills.
And although she of course wants to keep her father's memory alive - she admits it's basically unlikely she ever will forget the larger-than-life man.

The entire AHS cast is invited, and attendees are asked to wear red and blue, since those were Ben's favorite colors.
Ways that fans can help remember Ben, according to his dad Nick Woolf, are to donate to the Ben Woolf fund, which will place memorial park "BENches" in his honor, and it will donate to Ben's favorite charities, including the Story Teller Children's Center and Little People Of America.
Ben is already missed, but it's great that his memory will live on!
