Well, "old" Mondays on CBS was "Bull" at 9pm. They moved it to 10pm and gave Magnum the timeslot. Also exchanged the shows on 8pm and 11pm as well, so it's basicaly a entirely new TV programme for CBS on Mondays.

Looking at the official Twitter Header, I'm a bit surprised how they managed to make a good-looking guy like Jay Hernandez look so... unreal.

It's even more photoshopped than the MacGyver promo poster. I'm wondering if he actually was there for the shoot and if he actually changed the shirt. Methinks they just photoshopped differently colored Aloha shirts on him. Maybe even the hat and sunglasses.

On the other hand, it goes along the photoshopped utensils for the Original MacGyver BluRay cover... *sigh*

If anyone's interested, here's the synopsis of the press release plus the official stills for the pilot episode: https://www.spoilertv.com/2018/08/magnum-pi...w-sun-rise.html

A charming rogue, an American hero and a die-hard Detroit Tigers fan, Magnum lives in a guest cottage on Robin’s Nest, the luxurious estate where he works as a security consultant to supplement his P.I. business. The “majordomo” of the property is Juliet Higgins, a beautiful and commanding disavowed MI:6 agent whose second job is to keep Magnum in line, with the help of her two Dobermans. When Magnum needs back-up on a job, he turns to his trusted buddies and fellow POW survivors, Theodore “TC” Calvin, a former Marine chopper pilot who runs Island Hoppers, a helicopter tour business, and Orville “Rick” Wright, a former Marine door-gunner-turned-impresario of Oahu’s coolest nightclub and the most connected man on the island. Suspicious of Magnum’s casual attitude and presence at his crime scenes, Detective Gordon Katsumoto (Tim Kang) finds that he and Magnum are more alike than either of them care to admit. With keys to a vintage Ferrari in one hand, aviator sunglasses in the other, and an Old Düsseldorf longneck chilling in the fridge, Thomas Magnum is back on the case!

Preliminary Ratings for the Magnum Pilot: http://www.showbuzzdaily.com/articles/the-...-9-24-2018.html

I have to say, I'm a bit bummed for Lenkov. I expected it to do a lot better; even better than the pilot for rebooted MacGyver, especially with such a strong lead-in.

But according to Showbuzz Daily, all ratings dropped compared to last year:

CBS: The final season premiere of THE BIG BANG THEORY plunged 1.7 from 2017 to 2.4, and the season premiere of YOUNG SHELDON was down an even worse 2.1 to 1.7, although of course those are still strong numbers these days. MAGNUM, PI kicked off with an OK 1.2, but its lead-in is likely to be much lower beginning next week when the night’s new sitcoms arrive. BULL’s season premiere was down 0.4 from 2017 (on a Tuesday) to 0.9, and also down 0.3 from May’s season finale.

(For comparison: The MacGyver Reboot pilot airing on September 23 in 2016 pulled a demo-rating of 1.7 (14-49) and 10.891 million live-viewers.)

It's to assume that with the "normal" lead-in of comedies next Monday, the ratings will drop further. I'm not sure yet if that might have implications for MacGyver (e.g. if CBS decides to "save" it mid-season and shoves it to Friday).

The other new hyped CBS action drama show (FBI) just pulled a demo of 1.3 and 10.077 million live viewers in preliminary ratings. Of course, it also had a much stronger lead-in (NCIS).

So I guess over time, FBI will be much stronger than Magnum.

I just noticed that CBS re-scheduled the Rerun of Magnum - initially scheduled for Saturday 8pm - to later. It's now on Sunday, 10pm.

They scheduled the rerun of FBI for Saturday instead.

Ouch. Guess we know now where their priorities are between the 2 new rookie action shows... or maybe they're just testing well Magnum would do at a later time with another lead-in (there's a rerun of NCIS at 9).

The move wasn't so bad, apparently. The rerun of the pilot had 4.7 million live-viewers, more than FBI made on Saturday.

Episode 1.02 on the other hand... it's already down to 6 million and I'm not sure how much CBS needs to order a full season. Or what this means for MacGyver if they try to save it; peeking at the 8pm timeslot on Friday.
