Murphy Brown is coming back, and this time, the legendary anchorwoman be hosting a show called "Murphy in the Morning".
CBS announced its fall schedule Wednesday morning, placing the revived sitcom the behind "Mom" at 9:30 on Thursdays. So while The Eye is keeping 24 of its series from 2017, it is also toying with three new comedies and five new dramas, which include (naturally) a host of police procedural (FBI, The Red Line), revivals like Murphy Brown, and reboots like Magnum P.I.
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". 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.
At this week's upfronts in New York, CBS revealed a few details about the upcoming "Murphy Brown" revival, which the network is hoping will catch fire like ABC's "Roseanne" update.
