The Big Bang Theory has been on CBS for a decade now. Kaley Cuoco, 30, who told Jimmy Kimmel that, “I went from hot to like 30. I was 21 when I started the show. The guys all look the same. I’ve had to try for nine years.” While the show is still the highest rated comedy on network TV, Kaley didn’t sound exactly optimistic that the show will see an eleventh season. “It’s a very expensive question for a lot of people,” she answered when Jimmy asked if they were going to keep going after 10 years on the air.
She was pretty serious about that answer too, as if the cost of the show continuing could be a big factor in actually ending it. Kaley and co-stars Jim Parsons, 43, and Johnny Galecki, 41, all have contracts paying them $1 million EACH for 24 episodes of a regular season, and those expire at the end of season 10. If each agrees to come back for one more season, they’re probably going to want raises which would put the salaries for these three alone at well over $72 million of the show’s season 11 budget.
