'Murphy Brown' revival to air on Thursdays, tackle cable news

CBS is going to have a whole different look this fall.

Five news shows will debut on CBS this fall and two shows will feature comedy stars.

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.

Returning shows, some of which will be on this summer and some that won't be back until midseason, include: The Amazing Race, The Big Bang Theory, Big Brother, Blue Bloods, Bull, Celebrity Big Brother, Criminal Minds, Elementary, Hawaii Five-0, Instinct, Life in Pieces, MacGyver, Madam Secretary, Man With a Plan, Mom, NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, NCIS: New Orleans, Ransom, Salvation, SEAL Team, Survivor, S.W.AT., Undercover Boss, and Young Sheldon. The humor continues at 8:30pm Eastern Time with a brand new comedy called "Happy Together".

The new comedies are "The Neighborhood", about a white family moving into a black neighborhood, and "Happy Together", which focuses on a pop star taking up residence in a young couple's spare room.

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

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".

The third new CBS fall drama is "FBI", which will air 9-10 Tuesday. FBI, set in the bureau's NY office, stars Missy Peregrym (Rookie Blue), Zeeko Zaki (Valor), Jeremy Sisto (Law & Order), and Ebonée Noel (Still Star-Crossed).

"FBI" will be the first Wolf-produced network show since 2003 that's not on NBC.

Another new CBS fall drama, which will air 8-9 Sunday, is "God Friended Me". CBS said the plot concerns "an outspoken atheist whose life is turned upside down when he receives a friend request on social media from God and unwittingly becomes an agent of change in the lives and destinies of others around him".
