CBS Gives Full Season Orders to 'God Friended Me,' 'Magnum P.I.' and 'The Neighborhood'

CBS has today made decisions on three of its freshman series. It has ordered additional episodes of comedy The Neighborhood and dramas Magnum P.I. and God Friended Me. Exact episode counts were not initially announced. However, the pickups are said to be between seven and nine episodes for each.

God Friended Me, Magnum P.I. and The Neighborhood join FBI in getting additional episode orders from CBS this fall. The network has not yet made a decision on fellow freshman comedy Happy Together. Moreover, the Murphy Brown revival will cap its season at 13 episodes, as was the plan when it was first ordered.
