CBS is once again giving viewers two big nights of comedy on Mondays and Thursdays this Fall, with five returning shows and three new ones. In a surprise twist, two of the new shows are single-camera comedies, a departure from what CBS usually does as Life in Pieces is the only other non multi-camera sitcom.

The most high-profile of these new comedies is the Big Bang Theory prequel Young Sheldon. The new comedy will get a sneak preview after the premiere of The Big Bang Theory on Monday, September 25 at 8:30/7:30c, and then return to follow Big Bang Thursdays at 8:30pm starting November 2.  The trailer is extremely jarring because the show is single-camera as opposed to the multi-camera format of The Big Bang Theory. The show feels like it comes from a completely different universe from the original.



9JKL is a multi-camera sitcom that seems similar to Life in Pieces as it centers on a large, dysfunctional family. The show stars Mark Feuerstein as am actor who moves into an apartment (9K), right in between his parents (Elliott Gould and Linda Lavin) and his brother, sister-in-law and their baby. It will air Mondays at 8:30pm. It seems like the most perfect fit for CBS, a more polished and funnier version of The McCarthys or The Millers.



Me, Myself and I, starring Saturday Night Live's Bobby Moynihan, tells one man's story in three time periods: as a 14-year-old boy in the '90s, as a 40-year-old man in the present and as a 65-year-old in 2042 (played by Emmy winner John Larroquette). The concept and format are definitely a bit of a departure for CBS, so it's hard to tell if this hybrid of Life in Pieces and This Is Us will work. The show will premiere Mondays at 9:30pm, moving to 9pm on October 30.
