CBS' Murphy Brown Revival Will Be Taking on Cable News

Monday will now be home to two comedies and two dramas as the revived Candice Bergen sitcom will air alongside 'Mom.'

CBS seems to be embracing a programming philosophy best described by the phrase, "Everything old is new again".

For the fall, CBS will bring back "Murphy Brown" and update "Magnum P.I".

Candice Bergen's "Murphy Brown" struggled as a single mother at the FYI network in the early 90s, but in 2018 she will fight for ratings against a Fox News-like cable show starring her child.

Murphy Brown will air Thursday night at 9:30 PM, behind what CBS calls "Prime Chuck block", the Chuck Lorre-produced The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon and Mom.

The new "Magnum P.I." is part of a greatly revamped Monday lineup that also features the new (really new) CBS comedies, "The Neighborhood" and "Happy Together".

A change that "Magnum" fans should watch for, beside a missing comma in the revamp's title: The private detective has a goatee instead of the signature moustache of original star Tom Selleck.

New "Magnum" star Hernandez, who is of Latino descent, is among the actors of color joining the CBS line-up, long criticized for a lack of inclusion.

John Abraham roped in for Nikkhil Advani's Batla House
Abraham will reportedly play DCP Sanjeev Kumar Yadav, who received a gallantry medal for his role in the operation. We are hoping to answer these questions in the movie. "We want to make films that are very relevant and topical".

And remember that CBS passed on a reboot of "Cagney and Lacey" with Sarah Drew and Michelle Hurd. "God Friended Me" airs at 8pm Eastern Time following "60 Minutes".

The final new shows that made the cut for the fall lineup are dramas Federal Bureau of Investigation and God Friended Me. 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 show is being produced by Emmy Award victor Dick Wolf and the team behind the "Law & Order" franchise.

To make way for these newcomers, CBS dumped such veterans shows as "Scorpion" (with former Clevelander Robert Patrick) and "Kevin Can Wait".

"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.

Avery's presence on a conservative news show is a little ironic-not just in the world of the series, but also in the real world; the original show's most memorable moment came when it responded directly to a real-world criticism from Dan Quayle over Murphy's decision to have her child out of wedlock. Along with Noah Wyle, the series stars include Howard Charles and Emayatzy Corinealdi.

Meanwhile, Candace Bergen will be returning to the titular role in Murphy Brown 20 years after the series ended its 10-year, Emmy-winning run.
