Murphy Brown revival to take on Fox & Friends

CBS Exec on 'Murphy Brown' Reboot Ratings: 'I'm Not Sure We'll Get 'Roseanne' Numbers'

Murphy Brown is coming back, and this time, the legendary anchorwoman be hosting a show called "Murphy in the Morning".

The dramas are "God Friended Me" with Brandon Micheal Hall ("The Mayor"); "Magnum", with Jay Hernandez taking the lead role; and "FBI" from "Law & Order" executive producer Dick Wolf. CBS announced its 2018-2019 lineup on Wednesday and said that its "Murphy Brown" reboot will air at 9:30 p.m. on Thursday.

In the original, Candice Bergen's Brown anchored a primetime news magazine. 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.

During Wednesday's upfront presentation, CBS showed behind-the-scenes video, with Bergen talking about "Murphy Brown" and promising to tackle "alternative facts and fake news".

On Tuesday nights, viewers will be treated to a brand new drama called "FBI". Executive producer Dick Wolf's new crime drama is set in NY and stars Jeremy Sisto, Zeeko Zaki, Missy Peregrym and Connie Nielsen. And that last one is actually exactly what it sounds like - an atheist accepts a friend request from God on Facebook and begins unintentionally helping others in need because of it. CBS explained it has similarities to Touched by an Angel, but in a more contemporary setting.

Shows that won't be returning include: 9JKL; Kevin Can Wait; Living Biblically; Me, Myself & I; Scorpion; Superior Donuts; Wisdom of the Crowd, and Zoo. The dramas are: "The Red Line", starring Noah Wyle and following three vastly different Chicago families whose lives intersect after the mistaken shooting of an African-American doctor by a white cop; and "The Code", with Mira Sorvino having top billing in a drama about the Marine Corps' Judge Advocate Division.
