CBS held its annual pre-upfront breakfast for the press at its New York City headquarters ahead of its presentation for advertisers at Carnegie Hall Wednesday afternoon.
Meanwhile, Candace Bergen will be returning to the titular role in Murphy Brown 20 years after the series ended its 10-year, Emmy-winning run.
"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".
The network is adding remakes of 1980s series "Murphy Brown" and "Magnum, P.I." to a line-up that already includes blasts-from-the-past "Hawaii Five-0" and "MacGyver".
SCORPION will not return
SEAL Team, starring Philadelphia's David Boreanaz, will be again following Survivor this fall on Wednesdays, and while it appears to have survived easily, this season's two other military-themed network shows, NBC's The Brave, which starred Warminster's Mike Vogel, and the CW's Valor, have been canceled.
On Tuesdays, Bull's former berth between NCIS and NCIS: New Orleans will be filled by Federal Bureau of Investigation, a new procedural from University of Pennsylvania grad Dick Wolf, who also has four shows on NBC this fall: Chicago Med, Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D.
Another new CBS fall drama, which will air 8-9 Sunday, is "God Friended Me". Executive producer Dick Wolf's new crime drama is set in NY and stars Jeremy Sisto, Zeeko Zaki, Missy Peregrym and Connie Nielsen.
To make way for these newcomers, CBS dumped such veterans shows as "Scorpion" (with former Clevelander Robert Patrick) and "Kevin Can Wait". It's set for 9 p.m. Tuesday in the fall.
