CBS' Murphy Brown Revival Will Be Taking on Cable News

17 May 2018

The promo also gives us a look at the eventual fates of FYI executive producer Miles Silverberg (Grant Shaud), and intrepid investigative reporter Frank Fontane (Joe Regalbuto) - and introduces Tyne Daily as Phyllis, the sister of the original series' bar owner Phil (played by the late Pat Corley) - before introducing the over-arching concept behind this revival. In addition, several new series, such as "The Neighborhood", "Happy Together" and "FBI", are making their debut in the upcoming fall.

Murphy Brown, which aired for 10 seasons, is finally returning 20 years after airing their final episode, and the cast of the iconic sitcom reunited on Wednesday as they prepared to present their hotly anticipated revival at CBS' Upfront presentation in New York City.

Sans mustache and comma in the title, Magnum P.I. is back and now played Jay Hernandez.

"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".

As it unveils its new series, CBS welcomes you to the TV of 2018, which is really just the TV of 30 years ago.

Pliskova smashes umpire's chair in anger
Karolina Pliskova vented her frustration on the umpire's chair with her racket after her loss to Maria Sakkari Wednesday in Rome. However, the line-judge deemed the ball to be out, and this decision was not over-ruled by umpire Marta Mrozinska.

The Monday lineup is dominated by new shows.

- "Happy Together", which stars Damon Wayans Jr. and Amber Stevens West as a happily married couple in their 30s who begin to reconnect with their younger, cooler selves when an exuberant young pop star drawn to their super-ordinary suburban life (Felix Mallard) unexpectedly moves in with them.

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

Two other new dramas, The Code and The Red Line, and new comedy Fam will be held for midseason, along with returning shows Instinct, Elementary, Man with a Plan, and Life.

Of the six series that premiered last fall three will return for second seasons - "Young Sheldon", the prequel to "The Big Bang Theory" that is television's most-watched new series, and the dramas "SEAL Team" and "S.W.A.T".
