Big Bang Theory beats Friends as the longest running sitcom, however, there are rumors that Big Bang Theory will not have a Season 11. Rumors say that Jim Parsons, John Galecki and Kaley Cuoco refused to do another season because they asked for a raise from their $1,000,000 per episode talent fee but they were turned down.
