Sheldon does say it, but he uses the initialism when introducing himself at the start of the lecture they are presenting: Good morning and welcome to Science and Society. I’m Dr. Sheldon Cooper, BS, MS, MA, PhD, and ScD. OMG, right? Perhaps that joke was a little too hippie-dippy for this crowd. All right then, we’ll begin with opening remarks. Miss ...

This is one of those ways in which the research on the show utterly fails to reflect how real science is done.

Apollo 11 astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong put it there on July 21, ...

In comparison, Leonard's crew go to comic cons, buy movie trinkets, stay up with the latest electronics, have nice ...

I don't actually see anything in the Wikipedia article about Bill 101 (or in a brief perusal of the actual document) that requires film/tv/book titles (or even the series itself) to be translated into French (if you can find a specific section that does, please post it). I'm guessing this falls under Canadian free speech. In fact, I can't even find a "view ...

To add to the points already made here: Yes the show is shot infront of a live audience, but while the producers are comfortable using Sweetening, the answer to this is actually another question 'Does it really matter'? Laugh tracks are added over the top of the 'received reaction' of the audience, to make it seem as though the jokes were received more ...
