"The Big Bang Theory" has sold in syndication to five additional markets following Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution’s initial sale deal to Fox and TBS last month,reports B&C.
The five markets to buy the show are Tampa, Pittsburgh, Milwaukee, Sacramento and Kansas City.
Hearst bought the show for Tampa, Sacramento and Kansas City, while Sinclair bought the program for Pittsburgh and Weigel Broadcasting bought the series for Milwaukee, the article says, adding, Warner Bros. is selling market-by-market to secure the best pricing, rather than seeking group deals.
"The Big Bang Theory" is reaching prices similar to those of "Two and a Half Men" and above, in some cases, according to the report.
