What's Old Is New At CBS With 'Murphy Brown,' 'Magnum PI'

In the sitcom "The Neighborhood", Cedric the Entertainer stars as an opinionated man who has to adjust to new white neighbors, and Damon Wayans Jr. and Amber Stevens West play young marrieds in another comedy, "Happy Together". But they're not happy with their performance on Mondays, where the schedule is getting an overhaul that involves two new comedies, The Neighborhood and Happy Together, the new Magnum P.I. and the move of Bull from Tuesdays.

For starters, Candace Bergen will trade in her "FYI" newsmagazine show and will host a morning cable news show called "Murphy in the Morning".

Back in 1996 when he ran CBS' entertainment division, Leslie Moonves started an annual breakfast meeting with reporters on the day CBS presented its fall schedule to advertisers.

Suicide Squad's Jay Hernandez will be taking over the role made famous by Tom Selleck in the Magnum P.I. reboot, which tells the story of a former Navy SEAL who uses his military training to become a private investigator.

On CBS, they're no longer "Living Biblically", which was canceled, but the network was happy to announce "God Friended Me" starring Brandon Michael Hall ("The Mayor").

SUNDAY: 7 p.m., "60 Minutes;" 8 p.m., "God Friended Me;" 9 p.m., "NCIS: Los Angeles;" 10 p.m., "Madam Secretary".

Revivals have been a major theme of the upfront season and this comedy will return to CBS on Thursdays at 9:30pm Eastern Time as a part of CBS's top-rated comedy block with shows like "Young Sheldon", "Big Bang Theory" and "Mom".

"FBI" will be the first Wolf-produced network show since 2003 that's not on NBC. Starring Missy Peregrym as Maggie Bell and Zeeko Zaki as Omar Adom, this fast-paced drama goes inside the NY office of the Federal Bureau Of Investigation and highlights the talents, intellect and technical expertise of the bureau's agents.

"The Big Bang Theory" enters its 12th year this fall, and is still a draw: This season's finale, in which the Amy and Sheldon characters Wednesday, was the most-watched show last week.

It had been expected that CBS would wait until midseason to premiere the "Murphy Brown" revival. Along with Noah Wyle, the series stars include Howard Charles and Emayatzy Corinealdi.
