CBS Fall 2017 Schedule: Young Sheldon gets The Big Bang Theory lead-in, 9JKL and Me, Myself And I get timeslot on Mondays

By on May 17, 2017



CBS just released its Fall 2017 schedule for its primetime series ahead of the network’s Upfront this afternoon.

As usual, CBS will air Thursday Night Football on Thursday until late October. This means that after Football ends, some shows will be on the move. Airing on Mondays before the October changeup are The Big Bang Theory, Kevin Can Wait, Scorpion and the new series 9JKL and Me, Myself And I. After the change, The Big Bang Theory will move to Thursdays where it will be the lead-in for its spin-off series Young Sheldon. The rest of the Thursday night will be filled with episodes of Mom, Life In Pieces and upcoming series S.W.A.T. In the meantime will Superior Donuts get a slot on Monday nights. Also of note: Young Sheldon will have its series premiere on September 25 in the slot following The Big Bang Theory, and will then be on hiatus until November 2, which marks the first Thursday after the Football related change. 9JKL will thus premiere on October 2, presumably one week later than the rest.

The new series SEAL Team has earned itself a slot on Wednesdays, with Survivor as lead-in. The last remaining new series to debut in Fall 2017 is Wisdom Of The Crowd. The drama will air on Sundays followed by NCIS: Los Angeles and Madam Secretary.

Elementary, Man With A Plan, Code Black, The Amazing Race and new series Instinct and By The Book are all held for a Midseason premiere. There is no word yet on Ransom.
