CBS renews ‘Big Bang’ for 3 more years

– Here’s an announcement written in the stars: CBS has renewed “The Big Bang Theory” for an additional three years, taking it into the 2016-17 season.

It’s the second time the series has scored a three-season renewal. And one doesn’t need to be a science nerd to understand how the power behind the comedy’s ratings plays into its life extension.

The Thursday series, currently in its seventh season, is averaging a hefty 19.8 million viewers a week.

The nerdy strength of the show, which stars Emmy winner Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Simon Helberg and Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, extends beyond broadcast with syndication on TBS.
