It will feature the debut of Meemaw in the series, and she will be a constant fixture in Sheldon's life even up to his present day in "The Big Bang Theory". The CBS Entertainment and Warner Bros. So pleased, in fact, that they ordered more episodes of the show, giving it a full season for its freshman run. The pilot aired immediately after a new episode of its parent show, The Big Bang Theory, and Deadline reports that the spin-off maintained 98 percent of the audience. Given that Amy said yes when Sheldon popped the question, it's little surprise that Newhart's Professor Proton would return. Wil Wheaton is also set to reprise his role in that episode. The episode for November 2 has yet to film and there are no details about his role.

CBS' second comedy launch of the night unfortunately didn't fare as well with Me, Myself & I opening its season with 7.4 million total viewers and a 1.7 demo rating behind the Season 2 premiere of Kevin Can Wait (10.1 mil/2.3) which enjoyed a nice boost via its Young Sheldon lead-in. It co-stars Zoe Perry and Lance Barber and is executive-produced by The Big Bang Theory's Chuck Lorre and Steven Molaro as well as Parsons and Todd Spiewak. The show returned with Amy's reply - a big fat yes! - which translated into stellar ratings for the aging comedy: it averaged a 3.9 in 18-49 and was the night's most-watched show with 16.9 million viewers, Nielsen says. The Season 4 premiere of "Scorpion" (1.0, 5.7 million) was down significantly in both measures from the Season 3 premiere.
