Fans of The Big Bang Theory will be pleased to know that an episode of its spin-off, Young Sheldon, is airing on CBS tonight.

The episode is called An Academic Crime and a More Romantic Taco Bell, and it airs at 9pm ET. It features Sheldon accusing Dr Sturgis of plagiarism.

Fans are interested in the cast of this show, particularly Sheldon’s father – who is played by Lance Barber. This actor plays George Cooper Sr.

In fact, Barber was in an episode of The Big Bang Theory, but played a different role – that of Leondard’s childhood bully who came to visit him.

Young Sheldon episodes can be streamed live on CBS via fuboTV with a seven day free trial, or on demand with CBS All Access as one month can be gained free with a code until August 16.
