Murphy Brown and Happy Together to End as CBS Announces Winter Schedule

CBS today announced the comedy portion of its winter 2019 scheduling moves, including the series premiere of Fam and the return of Man with a Plan. At the same time, the network has confirmed that Murphy Brown and Happy Together will not return after completing their initial 13-episode orders.

CBS will premiere the new comedy Fam on Thursday, Jan. 10 (9:30-10:00 PM, ET/PT) after Murphy Brown completes its season order. Fam stars Nina Dobrev and Tone Bell in a comedy about a woman whose vision of a perfect life with her adoring fiancé and his wonderful parents is radically altered when her 16-year-old, out-of-control half-sister unexpectedly comes to live with her. As the family Clem (Dobrev) chose and the family she has blend, Clem realizes that this new happy fam may be the perfection she’s always been seeking.

Odessa Adlon, Brian Stokes Mitchell and Sheryl Lee Ralph also star in Fam. Corinne Kingsbury, Aaron Kaplan, Wendi Trilling and Dana Honor are executive producers for Kapital Entertainment in association with CBS Television Studios.

Also, Man with a Plan will return for its third season on Monday, Feb. 4 (8:30-9:00 PM, ET/PT) after Happy Together completes its season run. Man with a Plan stars Golden Globe Award winner Matt LeBlanc in a comedy about an old-school guy confronting the modern challenges of parenting, marriage and family.

Liza Snyder, Kevin Nealon, Stacy Keach, Grace Kaufman, Matthew McCann, Hala Finley, Matt Cook and Kali Rocha also star in Man with a Plan. Jeff and Jackie Filgo, Matt LeBlanc, Michael Rotenberg, Troy Zien and Gregg Mettler are executive producers for CBS Television Studios.

The season premiere of Life in Pieces will be announced at a later date.
