Murphy Brown will host a morning show called Murphy in the Morning on the rebooted comedy. Her son, played by Jake McDormand, will be her biggest competitor as host a conservative morning news show. CBS said Morning Joe and Fox & Friends are a fitting comparison. “We fully expect a lot of people are going to come to (Murphy Brown),” said CBS Entertainment president Kelly Kahl. “We felt… this could be a great piece to make this block the strongest on TV.”
