Rumor Roundup: Ba-CA-CHING-ga? (Another Season of Big Bang Theory?)


When the Internet runs out of news, it starts making things up. We think this is funny, so we round up all the lies and speculation and put them here. We call it the "Rumor Roundup" and we do it all for you! This week:

Michael Bay
  • Is Michael Bay Returning to Direct Transformers 5?
    Yes, because he didn't want the quality of those films to change without him. (Like saying your Whopper tastes better on Wednesdays, because Gary is working the line. And by that, I mean, all Whoppers taste equally delicious!) [The Outhousers]

  • Will Fallout 4 DLC Include Underwater Locations?
    Cool... but what did the 40's look like, underwater? Did the fish wear stockings? FISHnet stockings? [Christian Post]

Big Bang Theory
  • Is The Big Bang Theory Coming to an End?
    Life isn't that kind; this last season got the highest ratings ever. Maybe we have a chance if we can convince the entire cast and crew to "go out on top" rather than beat a dead horse! "I'm sorry, I can't hear you over the sound of me counting all of my cash!" responds everyone involved. [The Hollywood Reporter]

  • Will Facebook Messenger Allow Automated Robot Accounts?
    "Tortoise?! What's that?!" it responds, right before getting really mad. [TechCrunch]

Major League Gaming
  • Is Activision Blizzard Going to Buy the Major League Gaming eSports Organization?
    Wouldn't that be like, I dunno (does a quick Google), The Steelers buying the National Football League? Surely no unfair practices could come of that. [Softpedia]

  • Is Twitter Going to Allow a 10,000 Character Limit on Tweets?
    Since Twitter is so full of real "characters," it's going to be hard to decide who stays and who goes.
    Alternate joke: #FF is now going to be EPIC (ly terrible. Especially since none of y'all #FF ME @sommerjam. #PLUG!) [re/code]
