Big Bang Theory Gets Renewed for Three Years


Forget picking up a show for a year, small fry: CBS has just renewed Chuck Lorre's The Big Bang Theory for three more seasons, meaning it will be on at least through the 2013–14 season. Two years ago CBS extended the same offer to Two and a Half Men. The decision to do the same with Bang was a no-brainer: It's the top-rated show on Thursday night (and doesn't even have a handful like Charlie Sheen to contend with). Congratulations to physics jokes, which will remain prime-time players for years to come. [Deadline]
