'The Big Bang Theory' Renewed for Two More Seasons!

Fans of The Big Bang Theory will be happy to hear this news – the show has been renewed for two more seasons!

The five original stars of the series – Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Johnny Galecki, Simon Helberg, and Kunal Nayyar – are taking a pay cut for the additional seasons so that their co-stars Melissa Rauch and Mayim Bialik can get raises.

The original five have been earning $1 million an episode for the past three seasons. They will now be earning $900,000 an episode, according to THR.

Melissa and Mayim previously were earning $175,000 an episode and they are likely to be bumped to $400,000 per episode.

While The Big Bang Theory is a very costly show at $10 million per episode, with a majority of the expenses going to pay the cast, it is the number one scripted series on television in both viewers and the coveted ad demos.

    What’s so funny about watching 40 year old nerds?

    Actually, The Walking Dead is still the number one rated show on TV in the coveted ad demo (ages 18-49). BBT is number two (although it gets more overall viewers than TWD, more of its viewers are over age 50 and the advertisers don’t care about them).

    It used to be funny and while Amy and Sheldon still raise a smile, that’s it. It used to be a good show but like Supernatural, it’s gonna be done to death whether people want it or not.

    I know! It’s the worst thing on television. I watched 15 minutes once and I thought this is unbelievable bad and unfunny and the characters are people you want to trip going down the stairs. So damn annoying, I have no idea who tunes in. I guess other 40 year old nerds who live in their parents basement playing video games and hacking into girls emails, or boys, lol.
