CBS says it has ordered a full season of its The Big Bang Theory prequel, Young Sheldon.
Co-starring Zoe Perry, Lance Barber, Annie Potts, Montana Jordan and Raegan Revord, the show has been seen by more than 17.2 million viewers since it premiered Monday night.
On a busy night of series premieres, 'Young Sheldon' and 'Good Doctor' deliver heart with smarts. Also: CBS's cloying 'Me, Myself & I' and NBC's gung-ho 'The Brave'
It features Iain Armitage as the brilliant child version of Jim Parsons' physicist character Sheldon.
Parsons narrates and executive produces the series, which is set in Texas.
