CBS has set its premiere dates for fall 2017-18, with most shows rolling out in the first two weeks of the season — except for those airing on Thursday, which will wait until November while the network’s portion of the “Thursday Night Football” schedule plays out.

New comedy “Young Sheldon,” a “Big Bang Theory” spinoff, will get a one-episode preview on Sept. 25, following “Big Bang’s” premiere, before moving to its regular Thursday home in November. Five other new shows — comedies “9JKL and “Me, Myself & I” and dramas “SEAL Team,” “Wisdom of the Crowd” and “SWAT” — will also debut in the fall.

Per usual, “The Big Bang Theory” will anchor Mondays for several weeks before moving to Thursdays in November.
