Possible Delay For The Big Bang Theory Series 8

Ian here again. Jan is still suffering with her M.E and flu etc plus, the heat isn't helping her... We're British, we don't deal well with heat! Anyway, here is a little bit of TV news from me today...

It's possible that, series 8 of The Big Bang Theory  may end up getting delayed... Allons-y!

Reports are circulating on the net that pay negotiations for the new series of, The Big Bang Theory  are going slowly, and this in turn, may delay the shows production...

According to, contracts for Jim Parsons (Sheldon), Johnny Galecki (Leonard), Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting (Penny), Simon Helberg (Wolowitz) and, Kunal Nayyar (Raj) expired at the end of series seven.

With the first script read through set to take place less than a week from today, it is said that pay negotiations are not looking likely to be finished by then.

It is reported that, Parsons, Galecki and, Cuoco-Sweeting (who apparently negotiate together) each earned, a reported $350,000 per episode, for series seven. The same reports also state that, once negotiations are over, these three could possibly be earning $1 million per episode. The shows co-creator, Chuck Lorre is backing his stars with their negotiations, saying "everybody should be very successful, and happy, and rich. They earned it. It's a great cast. Great cast. It's their time"... Frankly, he is right! How many times do talentless actors/acrtresses get pay increases so easily (Kristen Stewart got $12.5 million for each part of Twilight: Breaking Dawn  for f**k's sake!) yet, you have a great cast like this and they're having to fight for it. Also, The Big Bang Theory  is estimated to generate $3 billion in profit... They could afford to pay all 7 of the main cast a million each per episode... It'd be like peeing in the ocean!

On a positive note, Melissa Rauch (Bernadette) and Mayim Bialik (Amy) are already in... However, I haven't heard anything about Kevin Sussman (Stewart), they did burn his comic book shop down, does that mean he isn't coming back?

Are you a fan of The Big Bang Theory ? Do you think they should get a pay increase? Leave me your thoughts below.

Thanks for stopping by, I do hope you enjoyed yourself.
