Happy Together stars Damon Wayans Jr and Amber Stevens West as a couple whose lives change when a pop star (Felix Mallard) moves in with them. 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.

Murphy Brown will air Thursday night at 9:30 PM, behind what CBS calls "Prime Chuck block", the Chuck Lorre-produced The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon and Mom.

Emmy award victor Candice Bergen and series creator Diane English reunite to revive the comedy about a broadcast news legend who is not afraid to voice her opinion in a vastly different political climate. Thursdays. Tyne Daly's joined the cast as the sister of Phil, the bar owner who was played by the late Pat Corley, and Jake McDorman (Limitless) will play Murphy's now-grown son, Avery.

Suicide Squad's Jay Hernandez will be taking over the role made famous by Tom Selleck in the Magnum P.I. reboot, which tells the story of a former Navy SEAL who uses his military training to become a private investigator.

Back in 1996 when he ran CBS' entertainment division, Leslie Moonves started an annual breakfast meeting with reporters on the day CBS presented its fall schedule to advertisers.

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.

The final new shows that made the cut for the fall lineup are dramas Federal Bureau of Investigation and God Friended Me. 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.

Dick Wolf ("Law & Order", "Chicago Fire") will produce "FBI", starring Missy Peregrym ("Ten Days in the Valley", "Van Helsing", "Rookie Blue", "Heroes"). The network also will offer "God Friended Me", billed as "a mind-blowing spiritual journey" with echoes of "Touched by an Angel".

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.

Another new CBS fall drama, which will air 8-9 Sunday, is "God Friended Me".
