First look at Big Bang Theory prequel series Young Sheldon

And looking at the network's fall schedule, the success of CBS should continue in a market with a high share of older viewers that love the network's more traditional programming.

The character was brought to life in The Big Bang Theory by Jim Parsons, who recently got hitched.

"Big Bang Theory" has been a long-running hit for CBS, and "Young Sheldon" will presumably follow co-star Jim Parsons' character of Dr. Sheldon Cooper as a younger man - or maybe even a boy.

Other new TV shows coming to the eye network include "Seal Team", "S.W.A.T." and "Wisdom of the Crowd".

BACK FOR MORE: "Elementary", "Mom", "Man With A Plan", "Code Black", "Elementary", "Big Brother", "Zoo", "The Amazing Race" and "Undercover Boss" were renewed, TVLine says.

Moonves said the only obvious similarity to the old series will be the use of its classic theme song.

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

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.

TUESDAY "NCIS" (8); "Bull" (9); "NCIS: New Orleans" (10).

Family comedy 9JKL (pictured) has landed the regular post-Big Bang slot on Mondays.

Survivor holds its position on Wednesdays at 8/7c, with new drama SEAL Team debuting at 9/8c and Criminal Minds moving to 10/9c. Young Sheldon will air on CBS on Thursday nights at 8.30 p.m. starting November 2, 2017.

On Thursdays, football starts off September 28. Apart from "The Big Bang Theory", "Young Sheldon", which is one of the network's biggest bet will be among them. Kahl said they have a winning strategy to close out the work week with "MacGyver", "Hawaii Five-0" and "Blue Bloods". Metro provided new images from the upcoming show.

SUNDAY "60 Minutes" (7); "Wisdom of the Crowd" (8), with Jeremy Piven as a tech visionary who creates a crowdsource app to solve his daughter's murder; "NCIS: LA" (9); "Madam Secretary" (10). CBS presented their Fall, Midseason, and CBS All Access Only shows to the audience, including the anticipating reboot of Star Trek.
