I was an avid fan of TBBT when it first came out, but I've gotten disinterested in the last couple of seasons. I'm just now going back and catching up.

Young Sheldon has the potential to be a hit, but I don't think it will. When I watched the trailer most of my expectations were dashed. I didn't laugh a single time. Sheldon was/is my favorite character on TBBT and the curiosity of his childhood is the reason I will watch. But, I didn't find any connection with any characters in Young Sheldon. I think Young Sheldons ratings will start decently high, but I suspect they will plummet by the end of the season. I do think it will make it to a second season, but probably not a third.

In my case, the only show at the same time is The Good Place, one of the funniest, most innovative shows currently on.

No problem though, between my four DVRs, I have 19 available tuners.

Most shows provide us with some backstory on the characters, as in how they were occupied before the start of the series. Young Sheldon comes saddled with a lot of future story which limits what they can do. Unless they violate what we already have been told on TBBT, Sheldon will never go on a date, never get kissed, get frequently humiliated by bullies, will go to high school at age 9 and college at age 11. He won't understand humor, won't get along with his brother or twin sister, his mother will be a religious zealot and his father will be a juicehead who is seldom around and who dies when Sheldon is 14, the same year Sheldon graduates from college. The one person he bonds with is his Grandmother.

It will be tough to create any suspenseful situations with so much of the future already known.

I'm looking forward to it. Maybe I'll get better insights on why older Sheldon is the way he is.

I don't watch the Big Bang Theory but I might consider watching Young Sheldon.

I'll be watching, looks like it could be a fun show, set in the 80s I guess

Default Young Sheldon: Awful

I will say that CBS will cancel this show mid season.

I will watch out of curiosity, but I find the premise of the show, dismal. I love BBT, but come up with a new idea, for new show.
