The Thursday timeslot puts "Murphy Brown," featuring Candice Bergen returning to the title role, after "Mom" and a full hour after "The Big Bang Theory" airs.

The revival will feature Bergen and other returning characters now hosting a cable news morning show titled "Murphy in the Morning" as opposed to running news magazine "FYI" as seen in the original series which ran for 10 seasons from 1988 to 1998.

Bergen's main competition will be her son, portrayed by "Limitless" actor Jack McDorman who hosts his own conservative morning news show, Entertainment Weekly reported.

The rivalry will mirror the competition between MSNBC's "Morning Joe" and Fox News' "Fox & Friends."

Bergen will also be joined on the revival by original stars Faith Ford, Joe Regalbuto and Grant Shaud.

Newcomer Nik Dodani is set to star as the director of social media for Murphy Brown's news program.

The actress recently posted on Instagram a photo of herself on set with the "Murphy Brown" cast along with series creator Diane English.
