O'Brien re-ups with TBS; 'Big Bang' gets spinoff

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. Kahl compared the Big Bang Theory spinoff to Wonder Years.

Earlier this year, CBS reached an agreement with Warner Bros.

On Mondays, two new comedies will join a night that will roll out in several phases this fall. Warner Bros.is the studio that owns the program. "You want to leave on top, but you don't want to leave money on the table". Shemar Moore stars in the drama based on the 1970s hit about a specialized tactical police unit in an unidentified California city and the subsequent 2003 film adaptation.

"Mom" and "Life in Pieces" will return to Thursday at 9 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., respectively, follwed by the cop show "S.W.A.T". Sharon Lawrence and Jaleel White also are cast members. The comedy explores the defining moments of one man's life over three distinct periods.

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

WEDNESDAY: 8, Survivor; 9, Seal Team; 10, Criminal Minds. "Criminal Minds" moves to 10 p.m. After football, starting November 2, it's The Big Bang Theory, then Young Sheldon, Mom, Life in Pieces and new drama S.W.A.T.

TUESDAYS - Tuesday's winning schedule remains intact. CBS' winning night begins with time period victor MACGYVER at 8:00 PM, followed by HAWAII FIVE-0, another time period victor.

Roseanne Returning to ABC
ABC says the new Roseanne will find the Conners dealing "with the economic challenges of living pay check to pay check in 2018". Last year, Netflix debuted a four-episode continuation of "The Gilmore Girls", with more episodes potentially on the way .

TUESDAY: 8, NCIS; 9, Bull; 10, NCIS: New Orleans.

MIDSEASON: Coming in 2018 is a comedy of Biblical proportions: Jay R. Ferguson ("The Real O'Neals", "Mad Men") stars as a NY film critic who tries to live strictly by the Bible.

Returning shows being held for midseason include "The Amazing Race", "Code Black", "Elementary", "Man with a Plan" and "Undercover Boss". The sitcom "Two Broke Girls" will not return.

The new lineup features four new comedies, four new dramas, and 23 returning shows.

"There are a lot of women on the schedule", Moonves said.

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.
