CBS unveils six new series for the fall season

The 2017 fall TV schedule is nearly completely set.

When Thursday Night Football is on the schedule, Mondays will offer The Big Bang Theory and new comedy 9JKL, which starts October 2 and "has a Raymond feel to it", said Kahl.

Jim Parsons (adult Sheldon) will narrate this new 30-minute series, which centers on young Sheldon growing up in Texas and coming to terms with his supersonic math and science capabilities.

Due to Thursday Night Football, "The Big Bang Theory" will start out on Mondays and "Young Sheldon" will premiere September 25 before both move to Thursday nights in November.

Feuerstein stars as a divorced actor who moves back to NY to be near family (Lavin, Gould) in "9JKL" (8:30 p.m. Monday).

According to cyber security firm Avast, more than 75,000 WanaCrypt0r 2.0 attacks had been detected in 99 countries as of Friday. The spread of the WannaCry ransomware attack slowed over the weekend but the respite might only be brief, experts have said.

CBS will once again present original programming throughout the full season, rolling out new series By the Book and Instinct, and returning shows Code Black, Elementary, Man with a Plan and the reality hits The Amazing Race and Undercover Boss.

CBS Chairman Leslie Moonves told reporters at the news conference that he isn't ruling out bringing back "The Big Bang Theory" for future seasons beyond the current deal signed earlier this year.

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)". "Me, Myself & I" slides to 9, and the comedy "Superior Donuts" rejoins the schedule in the 9:30 slot.

After NFL THURSDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL ends, THE BIG BANG THEORY will move to its regular Thursday time period on November 2.

"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.

WEDNESDAY: 8, Survivor; 9, Seal Team; 10, Criminal Minds.

FRIDAY: 8, MacGyver; 9, Hawaii Five-0; 10, Blue Bloods.

He defended CBS' track record, noting the network has the most female viewers, and cited his returning shows "Madam Secretary" and "Elementary", both of which are both fronted by female stars.

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.
