Big Bang Theory spinoff 'Young Sheldon' premieres on CBS
LOS ANGELES (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The Big Bang Theory spin-off called "Young Sheldon" officially debuts Monday night on CBS.
Star Iain Armitage plays a quirky scientist in the making, growing up in Texas.
Iain's breakout comedy role is set to premiere tonight at 8:30 p.m.
While he was out on the red carpet, Armitage was asked what he thought about playing a boy genius on TV.
"Well, I think the way he speaks and what he thinks about are so much bigger than what other people are thinking about. Like really hard things for other people to understand are easy for him, but easy things for other people to understand are hard for him," he said.
The first episode of "Young Sheldon" premiers tonight at 8:30, right here on CBS.
