CBS opens new Thursday slot with a 'Bang'

CBS will mark The Big Bang Theory's move to Thursdays with a special two-hour marathon of the show a week before the start of the new season. The marathon runs from 8:00-10:00 on Thursday, September 16th and contains the last four episodes of Season 3.

The new season of Big Bang gets underway on September 23rd. The show kicks off a new one-hour comedy block on Thursdays that also includes the show $#*! My Dad Says, starring William Shatner and based on a Twitter feed of the same name. CBS's Thursday night schedule continues with drama from CSI at 9 and The Mentalist at 10.

Mayim Bialik is to return as Sheldon's potential love interest, Amy Fowler, in the fourth season premiere. No other details have yet been revealed about the season opener.

Cannot wait until the season starts. This is one of my favorite shows, one of the two shows that I actually watch and one of the reasons I watch T.V. Counting down the days...

I hope the show does as well on Thursdays as it did on Mondays. I kinda hated to see it change. What I would really like to see is the show go from 1/2 hour to an hour. Probably won't ever happen though. It just seems like the show gets started when the end comes. Thanks to all of the wonderful (<--NOT) commercials. The actual show run time is what, maybe 15-20 minutes if you're lucky. Anyway, I look forward to a new season and maybe someday longer episodes.
