The clock is ticking for CBS big-wigs desperate to sign the stars of “The Big Bang Theory” to new contracts — or face a cataclysmic ratings collapse!
“The show runners say they have no intention of writing a finale episode for the series this spring,” a media insider told The National ENQUIRER, noting the series is TV’s top draw for adults in the 18-49 demographic.
“It would be devastating to lose the show. And that means the actors are in the driver’s seat when it comes to negotiations!”
The actors negotiated mega-deals two years ago — but there are more considerations than just money.
Despite getting $1 million per episode and a 1.25 percent cut of back-end deals, Kaley is now rumored to want a movie career.
“It’s not impossible for producers to write stars out for a few episodes, especially in a terrific ensemble show like ‘Big Bang Theory,’” said an insider.
“It gives stars time for other roles and keeps the show afloat — and that makes everyone happy!”
