One week after "The Big Bang Theory" passed its 100-episode mark, Melissa Rauch stopped by "The Talk" (weekdays, syndicated on CBS), and discussed one of the major changes the show's made in that time: adding a few more female characters to its cast.
Rauch plays Dr. Bernadette Maryann Rostenkowski on the geeky comedy, a microbiologist who's engaged to Howard Wolowitz. Her character was promoted to series regular in 2010, when she joined Kaley Cuoco and Mayim Bialik as a formidable trio of recurring female characters to balance out the show's mostly male nerds: Sheldon, Leonard, Howard and Raj.
When Aisha Tyler asked Rauch about the influx of female characters on the show, she threw out an oddball comparison that fit the comedy's quirky sense of humor. "I kind of call it the busted 'Sex and the City,'" she joked.
