Today’s Best Bets


Young Sheldon

CBS | 8:30 pm
It’s never certain that a beloved character from an ensemble comedy can carry his (or her) own show, but "The Big Bang Theory’s" Sheldon is so well-defined, it would take some doing for him to fail as the center of a series — even in his younger years. In this new spinoff’s "Pilot," Iain Armitage emulates Jim Parsons (who’s the narrator here) as Sheldon Cooper’s famously advanced mind perplexes nearly everyone. The show starts its regular run in November. […]

The Good Doctor

ABC | 10:01 pm
Much has been said about Daniel Dae Kim’s departure from "Hawaii Five-0," and one reason he left is that he’s an executive producer of this new drama, along with "House" veteran David Shore. Freddie Highmore follows his "Bates Motel" run as the title medic, whose autism and savant syndrome make his professional skills his main means of communicating with others. Hill Harper and Richard Schiff ("The West Wing") also star in "Pilot — Burnt Food." […]

Internal and external workings of the Defense Intelligence Agency fuel this new drama about undercover military operatives and the missions they tackle. Anne Heche plays the agency’s Washington, D.C.-based deputy director, who uses analysis and surveillance techniques to help steer dedicated Special Ops officers — including the one portrayed by Mike Vogel ("Under the Dome") — through global hot spots. Sofia Pernas also stars in the "Pilot." […]

CBS | 10:00 pm
Co-star Katharine McPhee taps into her musical roots again, since a production number — "Everything Is Absolutely Genius" — is part of "Extinction," which starts the adventure series’ fourth season. The plot forces the team to work with enemy Mark Collins (returning guest star Josh Leonard) to do nothing less than save the human race. Walter and Paige (Elyes Gabel, McPhee) still try to adjust to their new romantic status. Robert Patrick also stars. […]

Me, Myself & I

CBS | 9:30 pm
How would "This Is Us" play as a comedy? This new vehicle for Bobby Moynihan, who becomes a ready-for-primetime player after his tenure on "Saturday Night Live," provides a definite indication. He stars as the present-day incarnation of a man whose life is traced yesterday, today and tomorrow … meaning way in the past and well into the future. Jaleel White (Urkel!), Sharon Lawrence ("NYPD Blue") and John Larroquette all return to series work in this "Pilot." […]
