"Murphy Brown" reboot to tackle "fake news"

CBS highlights 'Murphy Brown' revival and Cedric the Entertainer sitcom in fall schedule

CBS highlights 'Murphy Brown' revival and Cedric the Entertainer sitcom in fall schedule

CBS will schedule three new dramas, put two new comedies on Mondays and place the "Murphy Brown" reboot with Candice Bergen on Thursdays.

When executives were asked if the setup was supposed to mirror the MSNBC/Fox News Morning Joe vs. Fox & Friends rivalry, they confirmed that was a fitting comparison.

CBS' Thursday night schedule next fall could be subtitled "Must-See Buffalo TV Night".

The new Murphy Brown has a combination of old and new cast members, including Nik Dodani, Faith Ford, Joe Regalbuto, and Grant Shaud.

By the way, CBS is also bringing back "Magnum P.I." in the fall. Jay Hernandez plays Thomas Magnum, a decorated former Navy SEAL who returns from Afghanistan to use his military skills to become a private investigator. The original series with Daly and Sharon Gless aired its final episodes in (you guessed it) 1988 - indeed, 30 years ago this month.

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".

Mahathir also named former Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin as home affairs minister and Mohamad Sabu as defense minister. He has also vowed to abolish the 6 per cent goods and services tax implemented in 2015 and to reintroduce fuel subsidies.

CBS has always been one of the most successful networks in terms of ratings because they know their audience. Executive producer Dick Wolf's new crime drama is set in NY and stars Jeremy Sisto, Zeeko Zaki, Missy Peregrym and Connie Nielsen.

The third new CBS fall drama is "FBI", which will air 9-10 Tuesday.

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

Speaking of dramas, CBS will be unveiling a new series on Sunday nights called "God Friended Me".

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 Red Line", a drama about three Chicago families, stars Noah Wyle.
