In the fall, after "NFL Thursday Night Football" concludes its run on CBS, "The Big Bang Theory" will move to Thursdays at 8 p.m. and will serve as a launch pad for its prequel, "Young Sheldon", beginning November 2.

The new comedy is centered on star Jim Parsons' character as a precocious youngster. The prequel will have a special TV preview on September 25, with the official premiere scheduled for November 2 at 8:30 ET.

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

As for "The Big Bang Theory", it's been renewed for two seasons - and CBS Chairman and CEO Leslie Moonves is already looking for more beyond that.

Black Caps beat Ireland despite maiden O'Brien ton
Peter Chase could not continue his good early season form, going for 74 runs and taking his only wicket in the last over. Worker, in only his third global , was the more patient while Taylor scored at nearly a run-a-ball.

THREE DRAMAS: Emmy-winner Piven plays a Silicon Valley entrepreneur who creates a crowd-sourcing app to solve his daughter's murder in "Wisdom of the Crowd" (8 p.m. Sunday); Boreanaz stars as the Navy "SEAL Team" leader (9 p.m. Wednesday); and Shemar Moore leaves "Criminal Minds" to become a "S.W.A.T." commander in Los Angeles (10 p.m. Thursday). 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 nights will continue to bring "60 Minutes", "NCIS: Los Angeles and "Madam Secretary".

The sitcom will start the season at 8 p.m. Monday, leading into "9JKL", a new series starring Mark Feuerstein.

Two new series also set to premiere later in the 2017-2018 season are: BY THE BOOK, a comedy about a modern day man who decides to live his life strictly by the Bible, and INSTINCT, a drama starring Alan Cumming as a gifted author, university professor and former Central Intelligence Agency operative who is lured back to his old life by the NYPD when they need his help to stop a serial killer.

Thursday: 8:00 p.m. ET/ 5:00 p.m. PT "NFL Thursday Night Football (Sept. 28 through October 26) 8:00 p.m". Television's #1 new comedy KEVIN CAN WAIT will open the season at 9:00 PM, providing a strong launch pad for the new comedy ME, MYSELF & I, starring Bobby Moynihan, at 9:30 PM.

Tuesdays have NCIS, Bull and NCIS: New Orleans. Kahl said they have a winning strategy to close out the work week with "MacGyver", "Hawaii Five-0" and "Blue Bloods".

That CBS would not own the show was a factor too.

Moonves noted that from a corporate standpoint - CBS owns premium cable network Showtime and a 50% interest in the CW network - "we're fine in terms of the amount of women behind the camera and in front of the camera".

The victor was trainer Todd Pletcher's second in 51 runners and jockey John Velazquez's second in 19 Kentucky Derby rides. Irish War Cry, who like Always Dreaming was sent off at odds of 9-2, couldn't handle the sloppy going and ended 10th.
