SEASON PREMIERE: Today’s edition of CBS Sunday Morning, which launches Season 40 for the reliably excellent Sunday news series, includes a report, and a reporter, you should make a special effort to watch. The reporter is pioneering news figure Ted Koppel, and the subject of his report is equally pioneering TV visionary and mogul Ted Turner, creator of TBS, CNN, TCM and more.  Turner now lives pretty much in seclusion on his huge ranch near Bozeman, Montana, and he tells Koppel about

SERIES PREMIERE: Brian Micheal Hall of The Mayor brings his easygoing charm to this new CBS fantasy series, in which he plays an atheist who is “friended” on social media… by God. This means, I guess, that God had to register for an account – but then again, if anyone could find a way around the red tape requirements for entry… But I digress. In concept, this series isn’t far at all from Joan of Arcadia, which I watched and enjoyed. But it starred Amber Tamb
