CBS looks back for its reboot-heavy new TV season

Jay Hernandez stars as Thomas Magnum

The network is adding remakes of 1980s series "Murphy Brown" and "Magnum, P.I." to a line-up that already includes blasts-from-the-past "Hawaii Five-0" and "MacGyver".

Jay Hernandez plays the new Thomas Magnum.
