CBS has renewed its hit comedy, The Big Bang Theory, for an additional three years.

In a release from CBS, the network said the show was extended through 2017.

"Comedy is a big part of our schedule, and The Big Bang Theory is the biggest comedy force on television," said Nina Tassler, chairman of CBS Entertainment.

"This multi-year deal further strengthens our network's position for future seasons and marks another chapter in the great partnership CBS enjoys with Warner Bros. Television for delivering audiences the best in comedy. We're proud to work with and showcase the incredible talents of Chuck Lorre, Steve Molaro and this amazing cast every week."

The Big Bang Theory is the most-watched comedy on TV, according to the release.

You can watch the comedy every Thursday night at 8 p.m. right here on CBS46.

The program began in September 2007. Since then, it has won numerous awards, including an Emmy for Jim Parsons in 2010, 2011 and 2013.
