    Exactly what the title says. Most CBS shows are in it (Men, NCIS, HIMYM, Rules of Engagement...) and it's 4 years old. I think it SHOULD be on iTunes. What do u guys think?

    I live in Canada, and The Big Bang Theory is available on Canadian Itunes... I think it just depends what country you're in, some have more choice of shows than others.

    Warner Bros. has always been less likely to make shows available on network sites and digital platforms, especially for shows they are going to be making a mint off of in syndication. Keeping it off iTunes may be part of thed huge deals they signed.

    I agree! The first season used to be on iTunes, but then it disappeared. Bill Prady wrote on Twitter about an article saying that BBT is in the top-five illegally downloaded shows on the Internet. I don't condone piracy, but in a way they are sort of encouraging it by not offering a legal method.
