This extraordinary deal would carry TV’s most-watched sitcom through the 2016-2017 season, the series’ tenth on the air. “The Big Bang Theory” premiered in September 2007, and has been a ratings smash for virtually its entire run. This season it has averaged nearly 20 million viewers each week. (AP Photo/CBS, Michael Yarish)
