CBS has won 14 of the past 15 seasons in prime time household ratings, including the last nine seasons in a row.

Two new comedies will join the line-up, though: 9JKL will follow Kevin Can Wait at 8:30/7:30c and Me, Myself, and I will take the 9/8c timeslot.

Providing CBS unparalleled stability, the Network will return 23 successful series to its 2017-2018 schedule.

The 10th season of the series concluded on May 11, and has left audiences with a cliffhanger.

CBS runs encores of its crime dramas on Saturdays, followed by "48 Hours" at 10 p.m.

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.

In addition, TBS is developing a fully interactive late-night programming block with the multiplatform studio Super Deluxe.

While unveiling the new "Big Bang" spinoff, CBS had bad news for "2 Broke Girls" - they really are broke as the show won't be renewed after six seasons. Well, now you wouldn't need to wonder anymore 'cause a new series titled Young Sheldon, a prequel to The Big Bang Theory, has unveiled the first look of a younger Sheldon.

"9JKL" - The family comedy stars Mark Feuerstein ("Royal Pains") as a divorced actor living in an apartment between his meddlesome parents (Elliott Gould, Linda Lavin) and competitive brother and sister-in-law (David Walton, Liza Lapira). THE BIG BANG THEORY's multiple Emmy Award victor Jim Parsons narrates as Adult Sheldon. The comedy "Superior Donuts", which premiered at midseason, will also return for a second season.

Friday's lineup will remain intact. NCIS: New Orleans caps the night at 10 p.m.

WEDNESDAYS - Two established hits bracket an exciting new drama. The only other significant shifts to the Eye lineup are on Wednesday, where Criminal Minds vacates its usual 9 p.m. home to make room for newcomer SEAL Team, and on Sunday, where NCIS: L.A. and Madam Secretary both shift back an hour so Wisdom of the Crowd can get a boost from National Football League overruns and 60 Minutes. "Criminal Minds" moves to 10 p.m.

THURSDAYS - NFL THURSDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL kicks off on September 28, giving CBS a strong promotional platform to launch the new season.
