When Thursday Night Football is on the schedule, Mondays will offer The Big Bang Theory and new comedy 9JKL, which starts October 2 and "has a Raymond feel to it", said Kahl.

Set in 1989, the show will be narrated by Jim Parsons AKA the original Sheldon, and will star Iain Armitage, who is now starring in Sky Atlantic's Big Little Lies, as Young Sheldon, the boy genius who skipped four grades to start high school at the same time as his older, football-playing brother.

CBS will air a one-time preview episode of Young Sheldon on September 25 following BBT, and the series will officially kick off on November 2.

On Oct. 2, new family comedy 9JKL premieres at 8:30 PM, starring Mark Feuerstein, Linda Lavin and Elliott Gould, with THE BIG BANG THEORY providing the best comedy lead-in on television.

CBS also is adding to the parade of classic TV revivals that are permeating the new fall lineups, with "S.W.A.T".
