CBS will double-up on ‘Big Bang Theory’ for next three Mondays

CBS is counting on “Big Bang Theory” to work some overtime for the next few weeks. 

A double-header of the show did so well this past Monday that the network will use a similar strategy for the next three Mondays, pairing new “Bang” episodes with repeats, and pushing back the season premiere of “Mom.” 

The move will likely help boost the numbers for newcomer “Scorpion,” which will follow “Bang” at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

“The Millers” will occupy the Monday 8 p.m. spot beginning Oct. 20, and the season premiere of “2 Broke Girls” will air on Monday, October 27.

The “Bang” double-headers mean that CBS will move back the season premiere of “Mom” to Thursday, October 30. It will still get to follow new episodes of “Big Bang,” as the latter will air Thursdays instead of Mondays. 

Further down the road in January, “Millers” and “Mom” will swap nights, with the former moving back to Thursdays, and “Mom” relocating to Mondays.

Got all that?
