You should probably expect to see some sad photocopied flyers up around town that read: “Soft Kitty/Warm Kitty looking for work.” Because CBS’s biggest sitcom The Big Bang Theory is ending in 2019.
Deadline reports that CBS was in talks to keep the show going for a few more seasons, but CBS, along with Warner Bros. and show creator Chuck Lorre announced today that the upcoming 12th season (scheduled to premiere September 2018) will be the last. They issued the following statement:
“We are forever grateful to our fans for their support of The Big Bang Theory during the past twelve seasons. We, along with the cast, writers and crew, are extremely appreciative of the show’s success and aim to deliver a final season, and series finale, that will bring The Big Bang Theory to an epic creative close.”
TBBT will be the longest-running multi-camera comedy series in television history, with 12 seasons and 279 episodes. The decision to pull the plug was reportedly made by the producers. It definitely wasn’t made by the cast, because who would give up millions of dollars that easily? Besides Macaulay Culkin. At one point in time, the show’s main three stars – Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, and Johnny Galecki – were pulling in $1 million an episode. They were joined shortly after by Kunal Nayyar and Simon Helberg, who also got $1 million an episode. Eventually they all reportedly agreed to take a pay cut so that Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch could get a raise.
But how will the show end? My guess is the main nerd gang will all go on to fame and fortune after discovering the science required to finally make Penny a successful Hollywood actress. Wait a second, I think I’m describing Scientology. All hail Shel-Ron Cooper!
Kaley Cuoco was on Vogue.com’s Sad Hot Girls series, and told a story about how she dumped a famous actor for being a cheapskate. We all know Kaley Cuoco has that Big Bang Theory money, so I’m sure there’s a lot of people judging her for judging someone else’s lack of tipping, but this story actually happened when she was 19 years old. Kaley calls the guy “John,” because if she said his real name, “you’d know who he is.”
Kaley Cuoco? Tapping her watch impatiently and making “Hurry the HELL up” eyes at her wedding planner? Never, I refuse to believe it! But this is straight from Kaley’s mouth, so I guess I have to. Kaley got engaged in December to her boyfriend of two years Karl Cook. Three months later, Kaley tells People she’s ready to speed race down the aisle.
Hollywood decided to wear black at the Golden Globes last Sunday night in silent protest of the industry’s sexual assault problem. But four days later, most Hollywood people at the Critics’ Choice Awards went with color.
Kate Bosworth didn’t wear color, but she did wear a mess. Kate is wearing a dress by Brock Collection, but if I hadn’t been told who made her dress, I’d assume she went into a formal event showroom on a particularly dry day, collected too much static electricity while trying on a bridal gown with her socks on, and accidentally left the store with a child’s christening gown that was stuck to her. The best part is that the fun didn’t end when Kate turned around.
Tattoo artists all across the greater Los Angeles area just got excited about getting their hands on some of those sweet Big Bang Theory dollars for a wedding tattoo and possible subsequent cover-up job. Because Kaley Cuoco has decided to get married again. Except this time it’s not nearly as impulsive, I think.
Forbes has spoken and Sofia Vergara is still the reigning queen of getting those duckets! She’s been named the highest paid TV actress of 2017 proving once again, immigrants, they get the job done. This makes six years in a row that Sofia’s been the richest bitch in the TV game.
