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". Starring Damon Wayans Jr. and Amber Stevens West, this show features a happily married couple in their 30s who attempt to connect with their younger, cooler selves. While he remains unphased by the new diversity in his life, his opinionated next-door neighbor Calvin, played by Cedric the Entertainer, is anxious the family will mess up the culture on their street. It will also come with an unexpected twist: instead of running a newsmagazine, as she did in the original series, Candice Bergen's title heroine will now anchor a morning news show-and her son, Avery, will be her top competitor-at a conservative network.
CBS will also feature a modern take on a old classic as Magnum P.I. debuts this fall at 9pm Eastern Time on Monday nights.

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.
CBS announced its fall schedule Wednesday morning, placing the revived sitcom the behind "Mom" at 9:30 on Thursdays.
"FBI" will be the first Wolf-produced network show since 2003 that's not on NBC. The humorous drama is led by Brandon Michael Hall and his character Miles Finer is an outspoken atheist whose life gets completely flipped upside down when he receives a friend request on social media from God. Executive producer Dick Wolf's new crime drama is set in NY and stars Jeremy Sisto, Zeeko Zaki, Missy Peregrym and Connie Nielsen.More news: Michigan State settles with Larry Nassar victims for $500 million
