CBS Pairs Big Bang Theory & Young Sheldon Spin-Off

CBS Pairs Big Bang Theory & Young Sheldon Spin-Off

The 2017 fall TV schedule is nearly completely set.

It seems things moved along quite nicely, though: The show (aptly titled Young Sheldon) will debut in the slot directly following The Big Bang Theory on Thursday nights this fall.

Set in 1989, the show will be narrated by Jim Parsons AKA the original Sheldon, and will star Iain Armitage, who is now starring in Sky Atlantic's Big Little Lies, as Young Sheldon, the boy genius who skipped four grades to start high school at the same time as his older, football-playing brother. The Network's top-rated entertainment schedule returns November 2 with THE BIG BANG THEORY in its regular 8:00 PM slot, providing a ideal lead-in for the new comedy YOUNG SHELDON at 8:30 PM.

CBS detailed its plans for the 2017-18 season Wednesday as part of the week's broadcast network presentations to advertisers in NY.

The returning dramas are NCIS, television's #1 drama for eight consecutive seasons; BULL, this season's #1 new drama in viewers; SCORPION, the most watched broadcast drama on Monday; BLUE BLOODS, a top 10 broadcast drama in viewers; NCIS: LOS ANGELES and MADAM SECRETARY, which are the #1 and #2 broadcast series on Sunday, respectively; time period winners NCIS: NEW ORLEANS, HAWAII FIVE-0 and MACGYVER; as well as CRIMINAL MINDS, ELEMENTARY and CODE BLACK.

THREE COMEDIES: In addition to "Young Sheldon", CBS will premiere "Me, Myself & I (9:30 p.m. Monday), a "This Is Us" style time-shifting show about a guy at 14 in 1991 (Jack Dylan Grazer), at 40 (Bobby Moynihan from "Saturday Night Live") and at 65 in 2042 (Larroquette)".

Starting Oct. 30: 8, Kevin Can Wait; 8:30, 9JKL; 9, Me, Myself & I; 9:30, Superior Donuts; 10, Scorpion.

THURSDAY: 8, NFL Thursday Night Football. At 10:00 PM, Shemar Moore returns to CBS in the new action-packed drama S.W.A.T.

CBS will also introduce new shows "Instinct" - a crime drama starring Alan Cumming and Naveen Andrews - and "By the Book" - about a New Yorker (Jay R. Ferguson) who decides to try to live in strict accordance with the Bible - later in the 2017-2018 season.

But it chose to pass on the reboot of "American Idol" because the "economics made absolutely no sense for us", CBS CEO Les Moonves told reporters Wednesday morning.

"Kevin Can Wait" returns for its sophomore season at 9 p.m. and will move to 8 p.m. after football ends and the schedule readjusts.

CBS's Friday begins with time period victor MacGyver at 8 p.m., followed by Hawaii Five-0.

That CBS would not own the show was a factor too.
