Survivor 35: Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers

This edition, themed "Heroes v. Healers v. Hustlers," will feature 18 castaways, divided into three groups of six based on how they are perceived by others.

Heroes are used to being heralded for their achievements, healers receive gratitude for their work and hustlers must earn respect from others.

These castaways will be forced to compete against each other with the same ultimate goal: to outwit, outplay and outlast each other in an attempt to become the Sole Survivor.

This season's castaways include an Olympian, an NFL player, a bellhop, a diversity advocate and a urologist.

In the season premiere, "I'm Not Crazy, I'm Confident": The castaways battle to prove which group has what it takes to win – Heroes, Healers or Hustlers.

Also, one tribe will earn an advantage when the game is immediately "ignited" by the season's first challenge, and there is a super idol that comes with a new twist.

Murphy Brown (2018)

Candice Bergen and series creator Diane English reunite for Murphy Brown, the revival of the comedy about the broadcast news legend and her biting take on current events, now in a world of 24-hour cable, social media, "fake news" and a vastly different political climate.

Amid a divided nation, chaotic national discourse and rampant attacks on the press, Murphy decides to return to the airwaves with her biting take on current events on the CNC cable network's morning news program, "Murphy in the Morning," for which she recruits her "FYI" team: lifestyle reporter Corky Sherwood, investigative journalist Frank Fontana, and her former wunderkind news producer Miles Silverberg.

Joining them is social media director Pat Patel, who is tasked with bringing Murphy and the team into the 21st century.

Murphy's millennial son, Avery, shares his mother's competitive spirit and quick wit and is following in her journalistic footsteps with his own new show as the liberal voice on the competing, conservative-leaning Wolf Network.

The team still lets off steam at Phil's Bar, now run by his sister, Phyllis.

Now back in the game, Murphy is determined to draw the line between good television and honest reporting, proving that the world needs Murphy Brown now more than ever.
