15 hours ago | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

As previously reported, the main stars of CBS' hit comedy show, "The Big Bang Theory," are very money hungry, so it has led to them not being able to make the July 30th production start date for the upcoming season 8 that was scheduled, causing production to get delayed indefinitely until CBS decides to pay up. If they should decide to do so, it's going to be very expensive. According to TV Line. The main culprits for this delay, Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, are reportedly looking to increase their per-episode salaries from north of $300,000 (plus a quarter-of-a-point on the back end) to a possible, whopping $1 million dollars! Then their other costars ,Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar, who are currently getting around $125k and $75K per episode, respectively, also are want to get more money. Warner Bros.

16 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It’s that dreaded moment for TV executives everywhere – contract negotiations. And this TV season’s negotiation drama has started with a big bang indeed!

The cast of Chuck Lorre smash The Big Bang Theory have missed their original season eight production start date due to the fact that contracts have not been signed by the show’s stars Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar. While CBS seem to be playing it cool, Warner Bros. TV did release a statement to confirm that production had been pushed back.

The Big Bang Theory is a huge show for Warner Bros. TV, estimated to generate up to $2 billion in revenue. As the show was renewed for three more years back in March, we’re definitely not surprised that negotiations have gone this long.

The Big Bang Theory season eight is still set to return in September, but »

23 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

CBS

Those waiting for their next 22-episode dose of Sheldon being insane, Penny being a doofus and Leonard being entirely too reasonable might be waiting a little longer. Reports out of La are saying that production has stalled on the upcoming eighth season of The Big Bang Theory, owing to ongoing contract negotiation between the cast and the studio. Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons and Kaley Cuoco are among the stars still trying to make a deal over their payment for the next series of the phenomenally popular CBS sitcom, which was due to return on September 22nd.

Allegedly Galecki, Parsons and Cuoco are all seeking sizeable raises in their salary, which have been steadily rising from the $60,000 per episode they were paid in the first three seasons. Right now they’re looking to receive something close to a cool $1 million, as well as more backend money. That amount would put »

Where Does The Big Bang Theory's Salary Dispute Rank Among TV's Biggest Feuds?

30 July 2014 1:38 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The Big Bang Theory stars are at odds with producers over their contracts and it's delayed the start of Season 8. But this isn't the first time stars have battled their own shows. Stars Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting are said to asking for "Friends money"—up to $1 million an episode—while costars Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar are also said to be angling for raises. Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch already signed different deals.

"The Big Bang Theory" Production Delayed

30 July 2014 11:38 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Contract talks for CBS hit "The Big Bang Theory" have officially delayed production on the new season of the sitcom which was to begin today.

Actors Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar have not yet reached a new deal with studio Warner Bros. Television and it's unclear just how long production will be delayed as the impasse remains.

The recent three-season renewal of the show, and its place as TV's No. 1 comedy among total viewers for the past several years, gives the cast considerable leverage.

Parsons, Galecki and Cuoco are reportedly seeking up to $1 million per half-hour, along with a cut of the show's back-end - up from $325,000 per episode. Helberg and Nayyar are also seeking hefty raises.

Billy Bob Thornton Wants To Guest Star on 'Big Bang Theory' and 'Game of Thrones' and We Hope His Dreams Come True

29 July 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Emmy nominee Billy Bob Thornton may have won acclaim for the gritty FX drama "Fargo," but if he had his way, he'd guest star on a pair of polar opposite series.

During an appearance at the Emmy Performers Peer Group party in Beverly Hills Monday, Thornton revealed that his guilty pleasure show is "The Big Bang Theory," which he said his mother got him into. If he had the chance, Thornton said, he'd play "a guy who steals Penny [Kaley Cuoco] away" on the CBS comedy, and admitted that he sometimes gets a bit too wrapped up in the show.

"I started getting into all of these characters, and actually talk back to the television," the actor said in an interview posted on the Television Academy's Instagram account.

"I'll say, 'Cool it, Sheldon, could you lighten up?'" Thornton said of Jim Parsons's high-strung scientist character.

"I love it," he added. »

Comic-Con: ‘Big Bang Theory’ Team on Season 8, ‘Star Wars’ Trivia

25 July 2014 12:01 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS’ juggernaut comedy “The Big Bang Theory” invaded Comic-Con’s Ballroom 20 on Friday morning, with latenight host Craig Ferguson moderating a lively discussion with the writers and executive producers.

Garfunkel and Oates (comedy-folk duo Kate Micucci and Riki Lindhome) — who wrote Howard’s song to Bernadette, “If I Didn’t Have You” — performed a special version of the nerdy tune at the Q&A.

Star Wil Wheaton appeared midway through the panel in an orangutan mask — an homage to “Serial Ape-ist 2: Monkey See, Monkey Kill,” the movie within the show that his character is filming with Penny (Kaley Cuoco) — and the producers showed a spectacularly campy mock trailer from the fictional flick during the session.

There was much talk of “Star Wars” at the panel, given that stars James Earl Jones and Carrie Fisher appeared in one of last season’s most memorable installments — and showrunner Steve Molaro admitted »

Comic-Con 2014: DreamWorks Animation Panel

24 July 2014 7:36 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

DreamWorks came into Comic-Con with only two movies to show, Home and Penguins of Madagascar.  The third film, called B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations showed no footage just a prototype of a glove in the movie. The Hall H presentation started out with Home, staring Jim Parsons as Oh, a misfit alien who doesn’t fit in with his alien friends. Jim Parsons talked about how different it is to hear his voice coming from a character on screen that was not him. He meets Tip, a girl that befriends Oh. Since Home doesn’t come out until March 2015, we only saw the trailer and an exclusive 5-minute action sequence in Paris.  It was high on action but didn’t get many laughs from the audience.

The main portion of the DreamWorks panel was dedicated to The Penguins of Madagascar and it did not disappoint.  Coming out the fall, »
