CBS Exec on 'Murphy Brown' Reboot Ratings: 'I'm Not Sure We'll Get 'Roseanne' Numbers'

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". Jay Hernandez plays the new Thomas Magnum.

CBS execs told reporters on Wednesday that it will finish the season strong enough to hold on to the title of America's most-watched network, edging past NBC, which had surged ahead with the Super Bowl and the Winter Olympics.

And, no surprise here, just about all of them are right in the CBS wheelhouse.

The latter stars Damon Wayans Jr. and Amber Stevens West as a married couple who reconnect with their youth when they let a pop star obsessed with their ordinary suburban life move in with them. Take a look at trailers for the new shows below. Executive producer Dick Wolf's new crime drama is set in NY and stars Jeremy Sisto, Zeeko Zaki, Missy Peregrym and Connie Nielsen.

Instead, the network has added a handful of new comedies and dramas to its schedule and has revived Candice Bergen-starring sitcom Murphy Brown, which is headed to the schedule much earlier than originally anticipated.

New members of the cast include Jake McDorman as Murphy's son Avery and Tyne Daly as a character named Phyllis. The uplifting series stars Brandon Micheal Hall as Miles Finer, an outspoken atheist whose life is turned upside down and inside-out when he receives a Facebook friend request from God.

CBS also helped Berlanti reach that number with an order for The Red Line, an event series for midseason that he's producing with Ava DuVernay (A Wrinkle in Time) that follows the stories of three families in Chicago in the aftermath of a white police officer's mistaken shooting of an African American doctor.

The new Murphy Brown is set to air on CBS Thursdays at 9:30 in the 2018-2019 fall schedule.

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