“Big Bang Theory” Scores History Making Three-Season Renewal

Bazinga!

CBS just made a big move towards shoring up its ratings dominance by renewing The Big Bang Theory for three more seasons. The pick-up is the first time in modern scripted network television history that a series has been renewed up for three additional seasons. (Comedy Central picked up Tosh.0 for three more years in December 2013, but that’s like comparing apples and elephants.)

“Comedy is a big part of our schedule, and The Big Bang Theory is the biggest comedy force on television,” said Nina Tassler, Chairman, CBS Entertainment, in a statement. “We’re proud to work with and showcase the incredible talents of Chuck Lorre, Steve Molaro and this amazing cast every week.”

The Big Bang Theory, which is also a huge hit in syndication, is averaging 19.79 million viewers this season (an impressive feat for a show in its seventh season), up 4% from Season 6.

Thanks to this deal, The Big Bang Theory will air on CBS through 2017, making it one of the longest-running live-action comedies in broadcast network history.
