Absolutely no surprise that Two and A Half Men and Big Bang Theory are coming back, but the rumored multi-year deal is quite unusual.

Rumors were swirling Monday night that CBS was about to give a mammoth renewal deal with Warner Bros. TV for comedies “Two and a Half Men” and “The Big Bang Theory.”

The chatter is that “Men” will get a three-season order and “Big Bang” will get two-season deal. “Men” ranks as primetime’s top-rated comedy and the 9 p.m. anchor of CBS’ formidable Monday comedy block. “Big Bang” has blossomed into a bona fide hit in its sophomore season in the Monday lead off slot.

Both sitcoms are co-created and exec produced by Chuck Lorre. The renewal would take “Men” into its ninth season in 2011-12. “Big Bang” would be booked through its fourth season in 2010-11.
