Fans of The Big Bang Theory could start doing cartwheels and jump for joy. CBS network announced on Wednesday that the show is being renewed for three more seasons. Such strong faith in the show can only mean one thing – it’s funny and striking all the right cords with the audience.
The show is taking confident strides through its now fourth season. It was the top-rated scripted show on television last season among 18- to 49-year-old viewers and No. 2 comedy after “Two and a Half Men” in total viewers. The ratings went up about 15 % since the show was moved from Monday time slot into Thursday nights. It also went up 75 % in popularity this week, according to IMDB’s movie meter.
The half-hour multi-camera comedy follows brilliant but socially awkward physicists and their next door female neighbor, who tries to teach them about life outside the laboratory.
The stars of the show Kaley Cuoco (Penny), Johnny Galecki (Leodard Hofstadter), Jim Parsons (Sheldon Cooper) have reportedly tripled their salaries to around $200,000 each per episode.
The Big Bang Theory is a brain child of creators Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady. It has been nominated for two Golden Globe Awards this year.
