We are reviewing all the cancelled shows and renewed shows of 2011. And the year came out in its first week already giving way to a couple renewals. Second week of the year, is full of renewals. CBS renews The Big Bang Theory for three more seasons. In this case, the same week after Pretty Little Liars renewal order for second season, Secret Life of the American Teenager renewal, Castle renewal, Grey´s Anatomy renewal, Private Practice renewal, Modern Family renewal, Cougar Town renewal and The Middle renewal.
The Big Bang Theory is the top-rated series on Thursdays Night (the most lucrative night of television). The series’ rising importance to CBS has factored into the big new license fee for the show, around $4 million per episode, more than quadrupling the comedy’s current license fee.
“It doesn’t take a theoretical physicist to see why this show is a BIG part of our comedy future,” said Nina Tassler, CBS Entertainment President . “From ratings to critical acclaim to pop culture buzz, it’s struck a chord on all levels. The creative genius of Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady and the on-camera talents of an amazing young ensemble have created a comedy that will entertain viewers for a long time. We’re proud to partner with Warner Bros. on another highly successful, long-running comedy.”
Meanwhile Peter Roth, Warner Bros Television President added: “We are delighted and grateful that CBS has once again rewarded THE BIG BANG THEORY with a multiyear renewal.”
As Nina Tassler puts it, it´s a no brainer move for a show averaging just shy of 14 million viewers per episode.
