(CBS NEWS) – The cast of CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory” likely celebrated with a big bang Monday night, after they swept the 2013 Choice Television Awards.

The honors, chosen by the Broadcast Television Journalists Association, were handed out at the Beverly Hilton Hotel Monday night. “The Big Bang Theory”– which just happens to be the most-watched comedy both on network TV and on cable — took three prizes, including the honors for best comedy series, best supporting actor in a comedy (Simon Helberg), and best supporting actress in a comedy (Kaley Cuoco, who tied with Eden Sher of “The Middle”), making it the awards’ single-most celebrated series.

Another big winner of the night was cable network HBO. It received five awards for three of its series, including “Veep,” “Game of Thrones” and “The Newsroom,” and one TV movie “Behind the Candelabra,” making it the awards’ most celebrated network.
