CBS will debut three new comedies and two new dramas this fall, and will move Young Sheldon in the old time slot occupied by The Big Bang Theory, which is wrapping for good May 16.
Held back for midseason are the new dramas FBI: Most Wanted, from Dick Wolf, and Tommy, starring Edie Falco, as well as the new sitcom Broke, featuring Pauley Perrette. Big Brother, as well as Criminal Minds, MacGyver, Man With a Plan, The Amazing Race, and Undercover Boss will also bow later in the season.
One of the comedies is from sitcom mastermind Chuck Lorre, while Robert and Michelle King (The Good Fight) are behind one of the new dramas.
The network also announced Wednesday that Madam Secretary will come to an end with a 10-episode sixth season.
