‘Murphy Brown,’ ‘Magnum P.I.’ get very different makeovers

“Murphy Brown” and “Magnum P.I.” return to the CBS lineup this week, giving the network an it’s-the-’80s-all-over-again one-two marketing punch. These are, however, very different makeovers — the first a contemporary, Trump-referencing revival that occasionally suffers from over-reaching for topicality; the latter a light, blue-skies reboot, on a network whose lineup already features similar updates of “Hawaii Five-O” and “MacGyver.”
