CBS Scores Thursday Night Football Package; The Big Bang Theory on the Move?

by at . Comments

The highest-rated comedy on television may be on the move.

To make room for the highest-rated anything on television.

CBS has won the rights to eight Thursday night football games in 2014, all of which will air early in the season and all of which oughts to draw an absurd number of viewers to the network.

But it does raise the question of what to do with The Big Bang Theory.

Will it move back to Mondays permanently? Will it kick off a new comedy block on Wednesdays? Will it move to Mondays for two months and then back to Thursdays?

Or will its Season 8 premiere just be delayed until November?

Many options will be on the table, but one thing is certain: America's most-watched network is about to be A LOT more watched.

The BBT is not the only show on CBS that night. What about The Crazy One's?
I am not sure what else airs that night but I am sure fans of other shows that air that night too want to know

Elementary. Just don't put it up against Castle. That would make me really angry. I might even hook up a vcr.

Uh oh...that might have just sealed the fate of all the bubble shows on CBS.

TBBT Quotes

Penny: Here's a question-- as an alien pretending to be human, are you planning to engage in any post-prom mating rituals with Amy?
Sheldon: There are post-prom mating rituals?
Penny: Not always. Unless your date drives a van with an air mattress, then always.
Sheldon: Well, if it's part of the prom experience, then I'm open to it.
Penny: You're kidding.
Sheldon: I may be an alien, but I have urges.If Amy wants to copulate by firing her eggs into space, well, then, I will happily catch them with the reproductive sac on my upper flermin. I'm not the best at reading facial cues, but I can see that you're a little turned on.

Penny, there's only one cookie with something in the middle that solves life's problems, and that's an Oreo. Or a Nutter Butter, if you're in a pinch.
