The Big Bang Theory Season 8 Delayed Over Contract Negotiations

The Big Bang Theory Season 8 Delayed Over Contract Negotiations

Contract negotiations have apparently delayed the eighth season of the wildly popular show “The Big Bang Theory” and you’ll never guess how much its stars are looking to rake in per episode!

The production for the eighth season has been delayed, but it is set to begin on CBS on September 22nd at 8PM EST. The show’s stars Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Johnny Galecki, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar are reportedly all looking to get a raise — to the tune of earning a million per episode! ONE MILLION PER EPISODE.

Warner Brothers TV said, “Due to ongoing contract negotiations, production on The Big Bang Theory – which was originally scheduled to begin today (July 30) has been postponed.”

Chairman of Entertainment Nina Tassler said, “These deals manage to get done somehow miraculously year after year.”

She seems to be pretty confident that something will get worked out before the show is set to make its season eight premiere. Are you a “Big Bang Theory” fan?

‘The Situation’ is Heading to Anger Management

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino Launches His New Line For Couture Pop

Michael Sorrentino, former star of Jersey Shore and perhaps better known by his moniker ‘The Situation,’ was arrested and charged with assault earlier this month following a fight with his brother, Frank, at… the family’s tanning salon in New Jersey.  But of course.  Apparently Sorrentino and his family are filming a new reality show, The Sorrentinos, which will air on the TV Guide Network.  The premise is that the family is opening a tanning salon, as well as supporting ‘The Situation’ in his sobriety following his time in rehab a couple of years ago.

Anyway.  The court has ruled that Sorrentino must attend anger management classes and counseling – and if he completes these, his charges could be downgraded.  He spoke with People regarding the kerscuffle…

“I’m not perfect and neither is any family in the world.  I’ve been arguing and fighting with my little brothers since I was 6 or 7.  I work with my family, and I sort of live with them as well, so it gets a little tricky. There was a little discrepancy with work. … I was a little upset or maybe there was a miscommunication, and the next thing you know, it turns into something else, and then the next thing you know, I’m in jail with a broken hand.”

“No matter what happens, I love my family, and I’ve tried so hard to help them,” he said. “They know that. It’s tricky. People say, ‘Don’t get involved with business and family,’ but at the end of the day it’s the most rewarding thing you can do with your family.”

Well.  Looks like things are on the up and up there.

Mary-Louise Parker is Joining ‘The Blacklist’

Mary Louise Parker Visits the Letterman Show

Weeds star, Mary-Louise Parker will have a recurring role on NBC’s The Blacklist this season!  At Comic-Con over the weekend, the show’s creator, Jon Bokenkamp announced Parker’s role, insinuating that she would be tied to James Spader’s mysterious character, Reddington.  

Set to make her debut in the premiere, Parker will play Naomi Hyland, a strong woman who’s been hiding a dark secret from her husband, one that will put them both in danger.

This will be Parker’s second role on NBC this year, as she will also be appearing in a miniseries, The Slap along with Peter Sarsgaard. 

I’ve loved Parker since Fried Green Tomatoes.  I really cannot believe that she’s 50 this year.  She looks amazing.  I also really liked The Blacklist last season- but felt it lost momentum after it took the mid-season break.  I hate when shows do that.  Especially when you’re supposed to be following the nuances of plot twists.  All that aside- Spader is great, and I’ll totally watch for Parker’s arc alone.

Season 2 of ‘Reign’ to Feature ‘Lots of Death.’


Anyone itching for Fall TV could pacify themselves by trolling the internet about Comic Con news – which is going on as we speak.  One of the panels yesterday featured the cast from the CW hit show, ‘Reign.’  The spectacularly good looking cast gave an indication of what is in store for our favorite royals in the upcoming season.  On hand to discuss, were, Toby Regbo (plays Prince Francis), Megan Follows (plays Queen Catherine) and Adelaide Kane (who plays Mary Queen of Scots), as well as the executive producer, Laurie McCarthy.

Kane said Mary and Francis’ marriage is “going well so far,” though McCarthy warned Frary fans that they should be “a little nervous” about the couple’s future in Season 2. Francis and Mary will face countless obstacles, both “political” and sometimes “horrific.”

One of the latter elements will be the guilt hanging over Francis’ head following the murder of his father. “It’s going to eat me up inside, I imagine,” Regbo said.

“Season 2 is very much about what goes on beyond the castle walls,” McCarthy explained, noting that many nobles have been waiting for their day in court — so to speak — with Mary, Francis and Catherine.

Other things to expect from Season 2 are a nasty bout of the plague and an awkward triangle between Francis, Mary, and Lola – the mother of Francis’ bastard.  In very good news for Frary fans, the show won’t stick to strict historical facts regarding Francis’ death- and we can expect him to stay around for a long while.  Thank god, because Toby Regbo is really a sight for sore eyes, any eyes, he is delicious, it might be love… If you’re not watching the show- you really should just for the insane eye candy of all sexes.  Perhaps the best looking cast on TV.  And the best historically inaccurate costumes.
