Once again, there’s no chance of The Big Bang Theory being cancelled any time soon. The very popular sitcom’s already been renewed through season 10. The ratings dropped last season. Will they continue to fall this year or will they rebound? Stay tuned.
The Big Bang Theory revolves around a group of geeky scientists, their friends and significant others. The castmembers are Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar, Melissa Rauch, and Mayim Bialik.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.

Note: Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
