To make way for these newcomers, CBS dumped such veterans shows as "Scorpion" (with former Clevelander Robert Patrick) and "Kevin Can Wait". The uplifting series stars Brandon Micheal Hall as Miles Finer, an outspoken atheist whose life is turned upside down and inside-out when he receives a Facebook friend request from God.
