    Wow, a three year renewal is almost unheard of but considering the ratings it's getting it's not much of a surprise. The cast should all be getting nice raises out of this too.

    CBS announced today a multi-year broadcast renewal for the top-rated, critically acclaimed comedy THE BIG BANG THEORY.

    THE BIG BANG THEORY, which is TV’s most-watched comedy and the top-rated broadcast entertainment show among adults 18-49, has been renewed for an additional three years, extending it through the 2016-2017 season.

    Ok, I'll be the first one to say it.

    I doubt it actually lasts all three years in its current arrangement.

    Especially if Sheldon doesn't get some action by then. :)

    It will only get more sad as the characters get older.

    "get some action" !!!! :D

    I am sure that would make him blush, for you to be talking about his carnal knowledge on a public forum. ;)

    I think it would be more likely that AFF would get come lesbian action.

    Except that he doesn't have any yet!!

    (unless you count the sperm donation in the pilot episode).

    And that was so out of character too for him. I am just playing like that never happened.

    Totally agree. I think that was before the writers found the real Sheldon.

    And that was the unaired pilot, yes? The pilot with Kaley did not have the scene at the sperm bank.

    Perhaps, but didn't the dialog in the aired pilot still refer to going to the sperm bank?

    The version I have from the season 1 box set has the scene at the sperm bank and Kaley.

    Both the aired and unaired pilots have the selling sperm for rent money sub-plot and the same actress at the sperm bank. (why can I remember that but not where I put my car keys?)

    That actress (Vernee Watson) has appeared on the show on a number of occasions as an emergency room nurse. I remember her as being one of the sweathogs on Welcome Back Kotter.

    Now I know exactly who you're referring to.. (In the discussion about the unaired pilot, I may have mentioned I had to look her up.. but now that you mention her, I remember her from that and BBT)

    Chuck Lorre's and Bill Prady's wallets smile in contentment.

    Lorre's wallet reached it's maximum smileage long ago. But Prady's wallet still has some room for expansion, so good for him.
