CBS to showrunner: Let us announce our own premiere dates

"The Big Bang Theory" exec producer Bill Prady got a reminder from CBS today: You do your job, and we'll do ours.

Now granted, Prady is right. Sept. 23 is the first Thursday of the new TV season, so clearly, that's the date on which "The Big Bang Theory" — now on Thursdays — will launch its new season.

The problem: It's not actually locked in. CBS scheduling guru Kelly Kahl reminded him that nothing was official yet — via a Tweet.

(You may remember, Prady also prematurely congratulated Shawn Ryan via Tweet on his "Ride-Along" pickup — even though it hadn't happened yet. Thankfully, it did, a day later.)
