New CBS Fall Drama Trailers David Boreanaz's'SEAL Team and More

CBS is looking to keep its status as television's most-watched network with a 2017-18 fall slate that will launch six new programs, including a spinoff of its biggest comedy hit, "The Big Bang Theory".

CBS announced its lineup Wednesday, giving new "The Big Bang Theory" spinoff "Young Sheldon" the flawless spot right after "TBBT" on Thursdays. The series tells the story of a 9-year-old version of Jim Parsons' character, Sheldon Cooper, a-fish-out-of-water genius starting high school in an East Texas town where football rules.

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.

The sitcom will start the season at 8 p.m. Monday, leading into "9JKL", a new series starring Mark Feuerstein.

CBS is also adding a pair of action dramas, "Seal Team" and "Seal Team", and an unorthodox crime drama, "Wisdom of the Crowd".

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

As for "The Big Bang Theory", it's been renewed for two seasons - and CBS Chairman and CEO Leslie Moonves is already looking for more beyond that.
