Big Bang Indeed a Big Bang
CBS will be ponying up the big bucks in order to secure multiple seasons of their hit Monday night comedy lineup. Both "The Big Bang Theory" (Kaley Cuoco) and "Two and a Half Men" (Charlie Sheen) will be getting multi-season extentions.
While I have never gotten into "Two and a Half Men", I am a huge fan of "The Big Bang Theory" and thus am rejoicing at this news. If you haven't seen it, "The Big Bang Theory" is a comedy that unfortunately was lost in the shuffle of the writer's strike last year, but has come on in full force this season. The storyline revolves around a group of highly intelligent, yet social inept guys who live across the hall from a gorgeous blonde (Cuoco). The show is a mix of whitty banter and incredibly intelligent humor.
"The Big Bang Theory" proves that television can be smart AND successful, which is refreshing in the new age of often dumbed down media.
