YOUNG SHELDON is a comedy about 9-year-old Sheldon Cooper (Iain Armitage), who finds it isn’t easy growing up in East Texas. Being a once-in-a-generation mind capable of advanced mathematics and science isn’t always helpful in a land where church and football are king. And while the vulnerable, gifted and somewhat na�ve Sheldon deals with the world, his very normal family must find a way to deal with him. Zoe Perry, Lance Barber, Annie Potts, Raegan Revord and Montana Jordan also star. THE BIG BANG THEORY’s multiple Emmy Award winner Jim Parsons narrates the comedy as adult Sheldon.

ME, MYSELF & I stars Bobby Moynihan, Jack Dylan Grazer and John Larroquette in a comedy about the defining moments in one man’s life over three distinct periods – as a 14-year-old in 1991 (Grazer), at age 40 in present day (Moynihan) and at age 65 in 2042 (Larroquette). Brian Unger, Jaleel White, Kelen Coleman, Christopher Paul Richards, Mandell Maughan, Skylar Gray, Reylynn Caster and Sharon Lawrence also star.

Matt Murray and Albert Tsai also star. The series premieres Monday, Oct. 2 (8:30-9:00 PM, ET/PT).
