Murphy Brown has a new gig

Murphy Brown has a new gig

CBS announced its fall schedule Wednesday morning, placing the revived sitcom the behind "Mom" at 9:30 on Thursdays.

60 Minutes, television's #1 primetime news program for five decades, kicks off Sunday nights on the network, providing a strong lead-in for CBS' new drama series God Friended Me.

Murphy Brown, which will feature its original star, Candice Bergen, along with returning costars Faith Ford, Joe Regalbuto, and Conestoga High School grad Grant Shaud, will air at 9:30 p.m. But things are very different for the broadcast news legend this time around, having to deal with a journalism world of "fake news" and 24-hour cable. Jay Hernandez plays the 2018 model of Thomas Magnum, the private investigator that "Blue Bloods" star Tom Selleck portrayed for CBS in the 1980s. While he remains unphased by the new diversity in his life, his opinionated next-door neighbor Calvin, played by Cedric the Entertainer, is anxious the family will mess up the culture on their street. 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.

The latter stars Damon Wayans Jr. and Amber Stevens West as a married couple who reconnect with their youth when they let a pop star obsessed with their ordinary suburban life move in with them.

Focused According to the website the show's executives confirmed the setup could be compared to the MSNBC's Morning Joe and Fox News Fox & Friends rivalry seen on Wednesday at the CBS upfronts
