Writer/Producer Chuck Lorre has achieved a rare feat. In fact Warner Bros. Television’s researchers are pretty sure that he’s the only showrunner — at least since Nielsen began measuring ratings in 1991 — to have four shows simultaneously rank in the Top 20 top-rated shows on TV.

Lorre’s comedies “The Big Bang Theory” (5.2 live and same day), “Mike & Molly” (2.6), “Mom” (2.4) and “Two and a Half Men” (2.0) placed No. 6, No. 11, No. 15 and No. 17, respectively, in the advertiser-coveted Adults 18-49 demographic.

On top of that, “The Big Bang Theory” has been network TV’s No. 1 entertainment series (for both scripted or unscripted) among Adults 18-49, Adults 25-54 and Adults 18-34 all season.

As a showrunner, Lorre produces, writes and he’s responsible for overseeing the daily operations of the series.

Lorre has created many popular and successful sitcoms including “Grace Under Fire,” “Cybill” and “Dharma & Greg.” He also served as an executive producer on “Roseanne.”
