    Don't watch the show but damn they pay sitcom stars big money. I would rather own the show and make all they syndication money. Once this contract is complete they will have 10 years worth of episodes

    After protracted negotiations that pushed back the show’s Season 8 start date until Wednesday, the trio have agreed to new three-year contracts worth $1 million an episode, per Deadline. (That’s up from the $300K-an-episode they had been earning.) When all the perks are factored in — including signing bonuses and back-end fees — the actors will likely pocket north of $90 million over the three years.

    With Parsons, Galecki and Cuoco on board, and co-stars Melissa Rauch and Mayim Bialik already signed, all eyes turn to Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar (who are currently fetching $125 and $75K per episode, respectively). The pair remain in active talks are are expected to close new pacts today or, at the latest, tomorrow.

    it's one of my favorite shows. i can watch them over and over again and still laugh. most shows i can watch once. it's just the right mix of weird, smart and goofy.

    i like goofy. :grad:

    i liked leonard until TMZ got galeki walking down the street in mid summer wearing a scarf.

    fuck you galeki!

    It's not a bad show. Jim Parsons is a talented guy, his Sheldon character is the reason the show is still on the air

    and... ...... that's exactly why they're getting the big money.

    broadcast tv is dying... there are no Mash, All in the Family, Cosby Show, even BJ and the bear...... Used to be, at wrok you would talk about what you watched last night, everyone watched one of 3-5 channels...

    Now, people are doing their own thing, with the exception of the Big Bang, which brings in Big Ratings..... hence the $$$

    I liked the first 2 seasons, but Penny lost her looks and stopped wearing revealing outfits and the same jokes got tired. And, at $1 million an ep., get ready for fewer writers and the same recycled sets...exactly what makes a comedy fail. Plus, they're having the Leonard/Penny wedding this year - consider the shark well jumped.

    And look at how much Penny has changed, even ignoring the boobs, her face is radically different. She went from this:

    I believe that's called aging. Anyway, she can still sit on my face and bleed.

    My female friend watches this dumb show. It's the unfunniest show in history. I don't even understand how it's supposed to be funny. Maybe I'm old.

    Been with the show since the beginning.........And thought for sure that it would come to an end last season.........
    Don't see where they can take it from where they left it............Signing to such a high dollar, I guess they're looking to keep it going.....
    But we ALL know what happens when a "Talent" Signs a high dollar contract........Don't we?
