'Murphy Brown' Revival To Take On Cable Morning Show Wars: More Details

The revived Murphy Brown is set to air on Thursdays at 9:30 P.M., in a comedy lineup that begins with Big Bang Theory, then moves on to Young Sheldon and Mom.

Per The Hollywood Reporter, the former staff of the newsmagazine FYI is now running a morning show on cable, titled Murphy in the Morning. Jay Hernandez plays Thomas Magnum, a decorated former Navy SEAL who returns from Afghanistan to use his military skills to become a private investigator.

When asked if it would be similar to the real-world battles between MSNBC's "Morning Joe" and Fox News' "Fox & Friends", Kahl responded: "That's a pretty good characterization".

CBS execs told reporters on Wednesday that it will finish the season strong enough to hold on to the title of America's most-watched network, edging past NBC, which had surged ahead with the Super Bowl and the Winter Olympics. "I'm not sure we'll get "Roseanne" numbers, but we're going to be hopeful".

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. Happy Together stars Damon Wayans Jr and Amber Stevens West as a couple whose lives change when a pop star (Felix Mallard) moves in with them. The humorous drama is led by Brandon Michael Hall and his character Miles Finer is an outspoken atheist whose life gets completely flipped upside down when he receives a friend request on social media from God.

Midseason will bring the comedy "Fam", starring Tone Bell, and "The Red Line" from producers Ava DuVernay ("Selma", "Queen Sugar") and Greg Berlanti, about the mistaken shooting of an African-American doctor by a white police officer.

CBS has officially revealed its TV lineup for fall 2018, its first in years that will not feature Thursday Night Football. Along with Noah Wyle, the series stars include Howard Charles and Emayatzy Corinealdi.

CBS looks to be partying like it was 1988, a year when "Magnum", "MacGyver" and "Murphy Brown" were on the air. He loved to kibbitz and take shots at rivals.

Snoop Dogg should be used to smoke.

CBS will premiere six new series (three sitcoms and three dramas) in fall, the most of the major networks. A stagehand with a flashlight showed him the way.
