'Big Bang Theory' gets super-sized Season 7 premiere, bumping 'The Millers' back a week

the big-bang-theory-season-7-premiere-cbs.jpgWhen "The Big Bang Theory" returns for Season 7 this September, it will have a larger premiere than originally anticipated.

CBS announced on Monday (July 29) that its hit comedy will expand to one hour during its premiere on Thursday, Sept. 26, airing two original episodes back-to-back at 8 p.m. The move seems designed to provide as strong a lead-in as possible to Robin Williams' comeback comedy "The Crazy Ones" when it premieres at 9 p.m.

Of course, by adding the additional half-hour of "TBBT," the series premiere of "The Millers" -- Will Arnett's new comedy -- finds itself pushed back a week, now set to premiere on Oct. 3 at 8:30 p.m.

Are you looking forward to the super-sized Season 7 premiere, "Big Bang Theory" fans?
