I could try to explain why they kinda gave the slot to Magnum (despite H50 airing at 8pm now), but that would take just as much writing and I’m not sure if you’re interested in my rambling laugh.gif.

By all means, ramble away. smile.gif

Perhaps the delay in returning until mid-season is a political maneuver too, given that GA is about to pass some seriously controversial legislation soon (or has already)? I know some stars have stated they wouldn't film in the state because of it.

Tristin addressed that idea

Oh, please do, Dash. You're pretty much the only who can explain.

Just one thing though. Maybe what I have to say is doesn't add up to this equation but how was actually the fourth season of the original show received? Of course there was no social media at the time and it all was the way they said it would be and that was that.

Just curious because the fourth season of the original also began much later on Halloween with The Secret of Parker House while they could've aired at least 3 to 4 maybe even 5 episodes before that. It was also the shortest season at that time with 19 episodes. Was there a specific reason for that and how did the fans react?

I think the poison that was used was applied to this knife, passed to the mutton when it was cut and then activated by the wine. - MacGyver.
Sometimes you just have to die a little inside to be reborn and rise again as a stronger and wiser version of you.
It's better to be a little sad than to be fake content.

I don't have much time and I've posted this chart already a while ago (don't rememember where, though laugh.gif).

But this is why Friday is considered the “Death Slot”: Networks get a lot less money for a 30-second TV-commercial than on other days.

Check the chart (via AdAge) to see how much CBS got for their commercial minutes for each show in this Fall Season. And see for yourself which shows are worth the most and which aren’t...

Season 4's Nielsen ratings gave it mostly second place for it's time-slot with an occasional 3rd place.

It's actual ratings ranged from 11.5 - 14.0 with a demo % of 18 - 24


Nielsen ratings was the main system used back then.

Any idea why the drop for Mac this season vs. last?

I'm no expert in this and never really checked the Topic, but I'm assuming the Prices are a mixture of the average Network daily rates (e.g. Tuesdays to Thursdays on CBS are apparently more expensive than Fridays or Saturdays) and the individual average show demo ratings.

Friday used to be considered the "death slot", that's probably why advertizing is cheaper on Fridays. Yet, because of the better Ratings, both H50 and "Blue Bloods" have higher rates in general.

MacGyver lost in Viewers and demo Ratings over time and also between Seasons 1 and 2. The Chart came out in October, so I guess they looked at the drop during Season 1, and maybe waited until a few episodes of Season 2 aired, then predicted how the Show will do during the season and what commercial minutes should be worth charging.

If you check the chart, almost every show lost in worth since the last Season because of the dropping Ratings over time. "Bull" is a good example. It was the CBS Darling of all the rookie shows and got a lot of promo; they really pushed for it to be successful. And it did well in Ratings. This Season, they shoved the Show from 9 to 10pm in favor of "Magnum PI". They lost about 40% in Ratings (both in Demo AND in audience numbers). The people buying commercial minutes for this show certainly didn't get their money's worth. It still does great in DVR but that's probably not very interesting for CBS since people will skip most of the commercials when not watching live. So it's safe to assume that advertizing during "Bull" will be a lot cheaper for this Season.

If you think about it, Magnum kinda "killed" both Bull and MacGyver blink.gif

Audience Number comparison between MacGyver and SEAL Team (via SpoilerTV).

I'm not sure why they got a full Fall Season renewal... don't think the cost for SEAL Team is worth it with those ratings; especially considered they already exchanged the showrunner for S2 and had to do some retooling... they do very well in DVR numbers, though. Yet that's not where you make the big bucks... hmm.bmp

Maybe because that's the show that states they hire veterans
