Young Sheldon to inherit The Big Bang Theory time slot

Young Sheldon will inherit The Big Bang Theory's Thursday 8/7c time period next season, CBS announced today as it unveiled its 2019/20 schedule.

The Big Bang Theory, which ends its twelve-year run tomorrow night, has held the time period for the last nine seasons. After moving to Thursday nights in 2010, The Big Bang Theory grew in popularity to become the highest-rated scripted program on TV.

CBS renewed Young Sheldon for another two seasons earlier this year, taking the show through to its fourth season in 2020/21.

Following Young Sheldon in its new time period will be the new single-camera comedy The Unicorn, starring Walton Goggins. The seventh season of Mom, which was co-created by Chuck Lorre, keeps its 9/8c slot. New multi-camera comedy Carol's Second Act, starring Patricia Heaton (Everybody Loves RaymondThe Middle), airs at 9:30/8:30c. The new drama series Evil closes out the night at 10/9c.

Elsewhere on CBS's  fall schedule, Bob (Hearts) Abishola, a new multi-camera sitcom from Chuck Lorre with star Billy Gardell (Mike & Molly), will air Mondays at 8/7c.

The Big Bang Theory's hour-long series finale airs tomorrow, May 16, at 8/7c on CBS. A special behind-the-scenes retrospective, Unraveling the Mystery: A Big Bang Farewell, airs at 9:30/8:30c after the second season finale of Young Sheldon.

To wrap off this special night for The Big Bang Theory fans, the entire cast will join Stephen Colbert on The Late Show at 11:35/10:35c.
