What's Old Is New At CBS With 'Murphy Brown,' 'Magnum PI'

What's Old Is New At CBS With 'Murphy Brown,' 'Magnum PI'”

THURSDAY: 8 p.m., "Big Bang Theory;" 8:30 p.m., "Young Sheldon;" 9 p.m., "Mom;" 9:30 p.m., "Murphy Brown;" 10 p.m., "S.W.A.T".

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

CBS has unveiled its fall schedule for fall 2018.

The two brand-new CBS comedies joining the Monday lineup are: "The Neighborhood", about the friendliest guy in the Midwest (Max Greenfield) moving his family to a Los Angeles neighborhood where opinionated next-door neighbor Calvin Butler (Cedric the Entertainer) does not warm to his upbeat view of life; and "Happy Together", with Damon Wayans Jr. and Amber Stevens West as a happily married suburbanites Jack and Claire, who to reconnect with their younger, cooler selves when an exuberant young pop star (Felix Mallard) moves in with them. "God Friended Me" airs at 8pm Eastern Time following "60 Minutes". The show is being produced by Emmy Award victor Dick Wolf and the team behind the "Law & Order" franchise. 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. 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). The network also will offer "God Friended Me", billed as "a mind-blowing spiritual journey" with echoes of "Touched by an Angel".

For more information about casting and midseason shows, here's a link to the CBS fall TV announcement.

Avery's presence on a conservative news show is a little ironic-not just in the world of the series, but also in the real world; the original show's most memorable moment came when it responded directly to a real-world criticism from Dan Quayle over Murphy's decision to have her child out of wedlock. "The Red Line", a drama about three Chicago families, stars Noah Wyle.

The Thursday timeslot puts Murphy Brown, featuring Candice Bergen returning to the title role, after Mom and a full hour after The Big Bang Theory airs.
