The popular geek fest known as “The Big Bang Theory” has officially earned its place in syndication history. If you can’t get enough of the show’s characters and their wild antics you’ll be able to catch them on a daily basis with reruns on the TBS cable network. First they got Conan O’Brien, now Sheldon, who’s next?
According to the New York Times, “The Big Bang Theory” will appear on TBS and several local stations owned by Fox in what is believed to be one of the most lucrative TV syndication deals ever. Warner Bros (who distributes the show) wouldn’t reveal the details of the agreement but did confirm that we’ll see repeats on the said channels starting in the fall of 2011.
“The Big Bang Theory” is currently in its third year of production at CBS and is ranked as the highest rated sitcom on television among adults aged 18 to 49 (in your face “Two and a Half Men“!) On an interesting side note, two of the show’s main actors have other programs also running in syndication. Kaley Cuoco starred in both “Eight Simple Rules” and “Charmed,” while Johnny Galecki appears in the Nick-at-Nite staple, “Roseanne.”
What do you think of TBS’s decision to take on The Big Bang Theory? Do you think it was a good move?
