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

Murphy Brown Revival

Murphy Brown will air Thursday night at 9:30 PM, behind what CBS calls "Prime Chuck block", the Chuck Lorre-produced The Big Bang Theory, 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.

A change that "Magnum" fans should watch for, beside a missing comma in the revamp's title: The private detective has a goatee instead of the signature moustache of original star Tom Selleck. "We'd love to get Roseanne numbers", he said while cautioning, "I'm not sure we're going to get Roseanne numbers". CBS Entertainment president Kelly Kahl confirmed to reporters that the dynamic between Murphy and her son's programs will be comparable to the one that exists between Morning Joe and Fox & Friends.

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.

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.

On Sunday, after 60 Minutes, a new drama, God Friended Me, will star Brandon Micheal Hall (The Mayor) as an atheist who accepts a friend request from a social-media account calling itself God, an act that leads to his helping people in need.

One thing CBS is certainly hoping to imitate?

CBS looks to be partying like it was 1988, a year when "Magnum", "MacGyver" and "Murphy Brown" were on the air. He continued coming to the session, informally known as "lox with Les", even when he ascended to the role of corporate chieftain and underlings presented the schedule.
