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

The CBS fall schedule announced Wednesday features six new shows (if you count "Murphy Brown" as a newcomer): three dramas and three comedies. 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.

Bergen will also be joined on the revival by original stars Faith Ford, Joe Regalbuto and Grant Shaud.

A change that "Magnum" fans should watch for: The private detective has a goatee, not the trademark moustache of original star Tom Selleck.

Dick Wolf ("Law & Order", "Chicago Fire") will produce "FBI", starring Missy Peregrym ("Ten Days in the Valley", "Van Helsing", "Rookie Blue", "Heroes").

The Neighborhood stars Cedric the Entertainer, Max Greenfield (New Girl), and Tichina Arnold, and is about what happens when "the friendliest guy in the Midwest" (Greenfield) moves his family to a neighborhood in Los Angeles and tries to fit in a place where, as CBS puts it, "not everybody looks like him". The uplifting series stars Brandon Micheal Hall as Miles Finer, an outspoken atheist whose life is turned upside down and inside-out when he receives a Facebook friend request from God.

The final new shows that made the cut for the fall lineup are dramas Federal Bureau of Investigation and God Friended Me. The network also canceled "Scorpion" and Kevin James' "Kevin Can Wait".




CBS has officially revealed its TV lineup for fall 2018, its first in years that will not feature Thursday Night Football.

SUNDAY: 7 p.m., "60 Minutes;" 8 p.m., "God Friended Me;" 9 p.m., "NCIS: Los Angeles;" 10 p.m., "Madam Secretary".

CBS also announced two dramas and a comedy on the bench for midseason.

The season of "Murphy Brown" will include 13 episodes, and it will premiere in the fall on Thursday nights at 9:30 p.m., after "Mom".

Two other new dramas, The Code and The Red Line, and new comedy Fam will be held for midseason, along with returning shows Instinct, Elementary, Man with a Plan, and Life.
