Former Roseanne co-stars and are together again — this time on the new comedy The Big Bang Theory, premiering tonight at 8:30 p.m. on CBS.

On the new sitcom, Johnny plays a nerdy physicist while Sara is slated to guest star in an upcoming episode as a co-worker he attempts to date.

Johnny told OK! at the CBS fall season party that Sara’s newborn daughter, Sawyer, 7 weeks old, is making life interesting on the set. “She cries during rehearsal,” Johnny said, adding a joke: “That’s the only thing I’m not liking about working with Sara this time around.”

Johnny and Sara played boyfriend and girlfriend and eventually a married couple on Roseanne, which ran from 1988-97.

The actor said working with Sara again is “immediately familiar, like a day has not passed.”

But time has flown and Sara is now the mother of two with her longtime partner, Alison Adler. The couple also has a son, Levi, who turns 2 next month.

Johnny, on the other hand, has no immediate plans to start a family. “Sawyer's always on the set, and she’s the most beautiful child I’ve ever seen. But I’m afraid of handling those tiny little babies. She’s much too fragile for my clumsy hands. I’ll wait five or six years to have my own kids.”
