"Young Sheldon" and his grown-up version on "The Big Bang Theory" will be paired on CBS' Thursday night schedule this fall.

It's 1989, and we meet nine-year-old Sheldon Cooper, the beloved character from THE BIG BANG THEORY, who has skipped four grades to start high school alongside his less-intellectual older brother. That will make room for the new "Me, Myself & I", about the defining moments in one man's life over three distinct periods, at 9 p.m. and the returning "Superior Donuts", about a small donut shop in a fast-gentrifying Chicago neighborhood., at 9:30 p.m. "Scorpion" closes Mondays at 10 p.m. But Turner said the format and distribution strategy will evolve from his current talk show to a range of personality-based, cross-platform experiences.Sunday, it's 60 Minutes in its 50 year, followed by new drama Wisdom of the Crowd, NCIS: Los Angeles and Madam Secretary.

Returning shows being held for midseason include "The Amazing Race", "Code Black", "Elementary", "Man with a Plan" and "Undercover Boss".

"There is a lot more demand for Colbert and "CBS This Morning" than there ever has been before", Mr. Moonves said.

"Young Sheldon" premieres after "The Big Bang Theory" on CBS Monday, Sept. 25, at 8:30 p.m. ET.

Also due: Instinct, starring Alan Cumming (The Good Wife) as a former Central Intelligence Agency agent lured out of retirement to track a serial killer; and By the Book, a comedy about a man who decides to live by the Bible. The role was originally played by Laurie Metcalf on "Big Bang Theory".

Monday: 8:00 p.m. "The Big Bang Theory", "Kevin Can Wait" (starting October 30) 8:30 p.m.

What may surprise "Theory" fans is that "Young Sheldon" doesn't really look or feel like "Theory" (or any of Chuck Lorre's other sitcoms): It's multicamera and takes place less on a soundstage than in real locations.

Tuesdays remain untouched with NCIS at 8/7c and NCIS: New Orleans at 10/9c and Bull sandwiched in-between at 9/8c.

"Wisdom of the Crowd", a drama about fighting crime with a crowdsourcing app. "Entourage" actor Piven plays a Steve Jobs-like figure determined to solve his daughter's murder.

It will then move to Thursday nights at 8.30 p.m. from November 2.

Friday: "MacGyver" at 8, "Hawaii Five-0" at 9, "Blue Bloods" at 10.

Moonves was asked about CBS' interest in American Idol before it ended up at ABC.

Star Trek: Discovery will follow the voyages of Starfleet on their missions to discover new worlds and new lifeforms, and one Starfleet officer who must learn that to truly understand all things alien, you must first understand yourself.
