CBS - Will be rolling out eight new shows in the fall. Including a "Big Bang Theory" prequel called "Young Sheldon." They also with roll out a new comedy called "9JLK" about a man who is trying to restart his life after his divorce, by living next to his mother, father, and brother.

There are also two military shows coming, "SEAL Team" starting "Bones" star David Boreanaz and "S.W.A.T" a reboot of the 70's cop drama staring Shemar Moore. Say goodbye to "2 Broke Girls", "The Odd Couple", "Training Day", and seven other shows that will not be coming back.
