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

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.
