CBS is making some big changes to its nightly lineup this fall - but The Big Bang Theory will be staying right where US fans have been watching it for years.
The network is fresh off dropping veteran shows like Scorpion, Kevin Can Wait and the scandal-rocked Wisdom of the Crowd in order to make room for an iffy Magnum P.I. reboot and lots of other new comedies and dramas.
At the Upfronts on Wednesday (May 17), CBS unveiled its night-by-schedule for the fall season, starting with Monday nights: New Girl star Max Greenfield's sitcom The Neighborhood at 8pm, Damon Wayans Jr. comedy Happy Together at 8.30pm, Magnum PI at 9pm and the return of Bull at 10pm.

Tuesday nights will lead off with NCIS at 8pm, Law & Order boss Dick Wolf's FBI at 9pm and NCIS: New Orleans rounding out the evening at 10pm.
Survivor is back on Wednesdays at 8pm, followed by the second season of SEAL Team at 9pm and the banner 14th season of Criminal Minds at 10pm.
As previously mentioned, The Big Bang Theory retains its traditional slot of Thursday at 8pm for what could be its final season. At 8.30pm is spin-off Young Sheldon, to be followed by Mom at 9pm, the revival of Murphy Brown at 9.30pm and S.W.A.T. at 10pm.
It's all action on Friday nights with Macgyver at 8pm, Hawaii Five-0 at 9pm and Blue Bloods at 10pm. Saturdays will air Crimetime from 8-10pm, then 48 Hours at 10pm.
Finishing off the week on Sundays will be 60 Minutes at 7pm, fantasy drama God Friended Me at 8pm, NCIS: Los Angeles at 9pm and Madam Secretary at 10pm.
CBS is opting to save Celebrity Big Brother US, Elementary, Life in Pieces, Man with a Plan, The Amazing Race and Instinct for the mid-season, along with new shows Fam, The Code, Blood & Treasure and The Red Line.
The exact premiere dates for each of these new dramas will be announced in due course.
