CBS Renews The Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men for Multiple Seasons

by at . Comments

Today is a very good day for Chuck Lorre, the creator of both Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory.  CBS announced that it has renewed both shows for multiple seasons according to TV Guide.

The deal signed will take Two and a Half Men though the 2011-2012 season and The Big Bang Theory out to 2010-2011.  While the deal seems like a no-brainer for Men, which is in its sixth season and is still the most popular comedy on television, we're a little shocked by Big Bang.

Sure ratings have been very solid for Big Bang, averaging over 10 million, but the show is only in its second season.  We would have been happy with just a single season renewal.

CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler announced, "Our collaboration with Warner Bros. and Chuck Lorre for these two series has led to great entertainment for television audiences and has been very good business for CBS.  With these shows firmly in place, CBS is well-positioned for more comedy success in the years ahead."
