CBS Fall Schedule Is Revealed First Look Trailers for New Series Are Unearthed

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

CBS has a remake ("Magnum P.I."), a revival ("Murphy Brown") and four new shows on its schedule for fall 2018.

"Murphy Brown" star Candice Bergen in 1998, the year the original series left the air.

"The revival of the groundbreaking comedy about the eponymous broadcast news legend and her biting take on current events, now in a world of 24-hour cable, social media, "fake news" and a vastly different political climate".

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

The new "Magnum P.I." is part of a greatly revamped Monday lineup that also features the new (really new) CBS comedies, "The Neighborhood" and "Happy Together".

"Her son is going to be in the series and he is on a competing network at the same time frame", explained Sherman.

Suicide Squad's Jay Hernandez will be taking over the role made famous by Tom Selleck in the Magnum P.I. reboot, which tells the story of a former Navy SEAL who uses his military training to become a private investigator.

On CBS, they're no longer "Living Biblically", which was canceled, but the network was happy to announce "God Friended Me" starring Brandon Michael Hall ("The Mayor"). Executive producer Dick Wolf's new crime drama is set in NY and stars Jeremy Sisto, Zeeko Zaki, Missy Peregrym and Connie Nielsen.

TUESDAY: 8 p.m., "NCIS;" 9 p.m., "FBI;" 10 p.m., "NCIS: New Orleans". Steven Lilien and Bryan Wynbrandt ("Gotham") created the show, which airs at 8 p.m. Sunday in the fall.

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.

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

The verdict is still out on when the new 13-episode season will air, but CBS did reveal that the series has secured the Thursdays at 9:30 p.m. slot.
