YOUNG SHELDON is a new half-hour

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.

Pep: I'd have been sacked by Barca, Bayern
As a player, I've given everything and I love Manchester as a city and I've had my best moments as a player here at the club. But they will end the campaign without a trophy as they scrap to qualify for the Champions League via a top four finish.

Sunday, it's 60 Minutes in its 50 year, followed by new drama Wisdom of the Crowd, NCIS: Los Angeles and Madam Secretary.

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

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)".

After NFL Thursday Night Football ends, The Big Bang Theory will move to its regular Thursday time period, Kevin Can Wait will shift to 8 p.m., followed by newcomer 9JKL.

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

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

FRIDAY: 8, MacGyver; 9, Hawaii Five-0; 10, Blue Bloods. CBS even gave a first look at the show at its Upfront presentation on Wednesday (May 17).
