To celebrate our Winter TV Preview, EW is bringing fans 25 Scoops in 25 Days. From now until the end of the month, follow the hashtag #25Scoops25Days on Twitter and Instagram to keep up with the latest — and check for all the news and surprises.

Beth Behrs is trading cupcakes for nerds.

The 2 Broke Girls alum will be getting cozy with Raj on The Big Bang Theory — and EW has the exclusive first look.

In the upcoming Jan. 18 episode, Raj (Kunal Nayyar) lands in the middle of domestic drama when he starts dating a woman named Nell (Behrs), a recently separated school teacher whose husband, Oliver (Walton Goggins), is not pleased with this turn of events.

“We have a such a great cast, sometimes it’s hard to bring in outside actors, which is why we were so lucky to get someone as great as Beth to play Nell,” executive producer Steve Holland tells EW. “She and Kunal were hysterical together. It’s easy to see why Raj falls for her even though technically she’s still married to Oliver, the equally fantastic Walton Goggins.”
