For starters, Candace Bergen will trade in her "FYI" newsmagazine show and will host a morning cable news show called "Murphy in the Morning".

Hernandez's Magnum still is a decorated former Navy SEAL. Stephen Hill plays TC.

CBS is going to have a whole different look this fall. But they're not happy with their performance on Mondays, where the schedule is getting an overhaul that involves two new comedies, The Neighborhood and Happy Together, the new Magnum P.I. and the move of Bull from Tuesdays.

And remember that CBS passed on a reboot of "Cagney and Lacey" with Sarah Drew and Michelle Hurd. Roseanne's record ratings. When asked if the ABC comedy had raised his own network's ratings' hopes for Murphy Brown, Kahl stopped short of claiming to expect the same earth-shattering success. Starring Damon Wayans Jr. and Amber Stevens West, this show features a happily married couple in their 30s who attempt to connect with their younger, cooler selves.

"God Friended Me" gets the prime slot after "60 Minutes".

On Tuesday nights, viewers will be treated to a brand new drama called "FBI".

"FBI" will be the first Wolf-produced network show since 2003 that's not on NBC. CBS said the plot concerns "an outspoken atheist whose life is turned upside down when he receives a friend request on social media from God and unwittingly becomes an agent of change in the lives and destinies of others around him". 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).

To make way for these newcomers, CBS dumped such veterans shows as "Scorpion" (with former Clevelander Robert Patrick) and "Kevin Can Wait".

For midseason, CBS announced three series.

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.
