8 Things That Will and 2 Things That (Probably) Won't Happen on Big Bang Theory Season 8

1 hour ago | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

A multi-year renewal not only means job security (and $1 million an episode at that), but allows for long-term story planning. For The Big Bang Theory producers, however, it means business as usual.

"The three-year pickup is great and wonderful, but it's not going to change what we do," executive producer Steve Molaro tells TVGuide.com. "The way we've done things has worked out pretty well so far!"

Fall TV: Scoop on your favorite returning shows

That method means never looking further ahead than the episode in front of them. So, even with Penny (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting) and Leonard (Johnny Galecki) engaged now, it'll be a while before you get a Save the Date.

"I don't think we feel pressure to hit these milestones," Molaro says. "I'm sure some fans want ...

Inside The Big Bang Theory: TV's Most Popular Sitcom

22 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Before the cast of The Big Bang Theory can get on with the business of portraying America's favorite eggheads (and one foxy, out-of-work actress), there is a customary ritual that always precedes the reading of the very first script of the season. It usually starts with a simple question: How did you spend your summer? Faster than you can bust out a Bazinga, details are shared in gleeful progression: Jim Parsons (Sheldon) became a Wimbledon groupie. Simon Helberg (Howard) nested at home with his second baby. Melissa Rauch (Bernadette) produced her first movie. Johnny Galecki (Leonard) jetted to Prague, Kunal Nayyar »

‘Agents of Shield’ Season 2 Preview: Showrunners Tease New Faces, Old Enemies

19 September 2014 11:42 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

ABC and Marvel’s “Agents of Shield” is moving to a later timeslot in its second season (it’s set to premiere at 9 p.m. on Sept. 23), and that shift exemplifies a small but meaningful recalibration in the show’s mechanics — a transition to an older, wiser and darker version of a series that burst out of the gate with the full weight and expectations of the comicbook faithful behind it last season, only to stumble in its early episodes. While some installments captured the thrills we’ve come to expect from Marvel’s properties, and many intriguing mysteries were introduced, answers didn’t seem to be forthcoming, which left some viewers wondering whether the show might collapse under the weight of its secrets, even as it coyly hinted at ties to the wider Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The reason for its travails became clear around episode 17, after the release of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier, »

TV Review: ‘Scorpion’

19 September 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Given the fortune CBS is spending on license fees for “The Big Bang Theory,” the network can be forgiven for trying to expand the show’s geek-chic vibe to its procedural-drama wheelhouse. So while “Scorpion” might boast factual inspiration (a true nerdy computer prodigy!), one needn’t be a genius to see this for what it is: an effort to create a hybrid version of “Mission: Impossible” and Sherlock Holmes with a team of brainy problem-solvers. Provided “the full resources of the U.S. government” to thwart appropriately ornate crimes, the participants in this mildy fun yet wholly disposable exercise would be wise not to dwell on calculating their chances of network survival.

Team leader Walter O’Brien (Elyes Gabel) is introduced as a child, albeit one who brings the authorities descending onto his pastoral home by hacking into Nasa.

Flash forward, and he’s put together a group of »

Warner Bros. Expected to Cut as Many as 1,000 Jobs (Exclusive)

17 September 2014 6:20 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Warner Bros. Entertainment is expected to cut as many as 900 to 1,000 jobs worldwide as part of a studio-wide cost-cutting move, according to people familiar with the company’s plans. The estimated reductions would amount to more than 10% of the studio’s 9,000-person workforce.

The cuts will be made in late October or early November.

Senior managers are currently assessing their businesses to come up with ways to trim overhead. Only at the end of that process will an exact reduction figure be known. It could be somewhat lower than the current numbers being speculated, but cuts are expected to be substantial.

“There is no head count target or percentage reduction target,” said Dee Dee Myers, Warner Bros.’ new executive vice president of corporate communications. “This is a budget issue, not a head count issue,” she added.

Long before Analeigh Tipton had lines to run, she had a runway to walk. As a finalist on Cycle 11 of America's Next Top Model back in 2008, acting was not on her to-do list.

CBS Shifts Ratings Focus to Live Plus 7, Adding Projections to Daily Reports

17 September 2014 10:53 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS aims to accelerate the industry’s shift to Live Plus 7 as the standard metric for evaluating the performance of primetime series. The Eye said Wednesday it will add projected Live Plus 7 numbers to its daily overnight ratings reports as of next week, which marks the official start of the 2014-15 season and the rollout of the bulk of CBS’ fall slate.

The move is meant to be a statement to the TV biz and to advertisers that L7 ratings (and their C7 commercial ratings counterpart) should be seen as the new normal, given the vast growth of time-shifted viewing. Live Plus 7 ratings reflect viewing done via DVR and VOD within seven days of a telecast’s linear premiere. For a host of complicated reasons, L7 numbers do not include most streaming activity other than live streaming of network programming done on a smartphone or tablet within the confines of the viewer’s home. »
