As expected, the CBS Upfronts revealed that their Friday Line-Up won't change. The Reboot will air on Fridays, 8pm (followed by Hawaii Five-0 and Blue Bloods): http://season-zero.com/cbs-2017-2018-schedule/

What DID change is the competition, though; e.g. because Tim Allen's "Last Man Standing" has been cancelled.

Other shows airing on Fridays at 8 are "Once Upon a Time" (ABC), "Blindspot" (NBC) and "Hell's Kitchen" (FOX).

Not sure what this means for the ratings.

The Hollywood Reporter about the Fall Time-Slot Battle: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed...battles-1005274

They note that 39 new broadcast shows will launch in the 2017-18 season ohmy.gif


Here's the excerpt about Friday and MacGyver:

Friday, 8 p.m.: Once Upon a Time (ABC) v. Blindspot (NBC) v. MacGyver (CBS)
CBS has long found success on the otherwise quiet Fridays with long-running procedurals Blue Bloods and Hawaii Five-0. At long last, the network filled the final piece of the puzzle with a retooled MacGyver reboot. Now ABC and NBC want in on the action. Sure, both Once Upon a Time (1.6 adults) and Blindspot (1.8 adults) have seen better days, the serialized dramas still draw fiercely loyal fan bases (hence their renewals.) While MacGyver is much more heavy on testosterone than its new competition, Blindspot is also heavy on the action sequences and mysteries the reboot has become known for.

Here's the overview via http://www.tv-recaps-reviews.com/2017/05/t...-18-season.html

Yes, this looks like it's going to be more difficult earning good ratings this season; for H50 as well.

And this could be the end of it. Keeping up with the Jones' nowadays is like trying to run as fast as a speeding car. Still, you never know.

They could always slot it elsewhere. But what are the chances.

I think Once Upon a Time is a totally different kind of audience. And it's losing one of its main characters. It will be more competition I think, and I hope, hope, CBS does a better job of promoting and advertising this year. We can hope that even if the ratings drop they will remain good for a Friday night. The one thing that might worry me is the new SEAL show CBS has because if it does well, I can see it being a good fit with Hawaii Five 0 as well. But I'm trying to be positive because I so think the show has potential and if CBS will stick with it, it could really do well. I do hate that ABC and NBC chose this year of all years to jump on the Friday night action bandwagon!!! Ugg.

Interesting. Now of course whether it can compete against it's new competition.

Other new shows (e.g. "Bull") got full season orders as well, but I guess they can always cut the season short if ratings start falling.

I think moneywise - like the original show - MacGyver has more potential internationally. It was one of the best sold shows at last year's upfronts. I have no clue what that means for MacGyver, but there are figures for Hawaii Five-O in this article from February: http://www.latimes.com/business/hollywood/...0206-story.html

CBS does not break out the revenue generated by its shows. But at an investment conference last year, the company said it takes in $3.5 million per episode just from international broadcasters who buy “Hawaii Five-0.”

There's a lot of money that can be made in international markets and one thing is that MacGyver is already well known all over the world. The name itself sells it (they only had the unaired pilot to show at last year's upfronts, so they practically sold the show without showing the goods).

Considering the reboot, the article stated this: First year series “MacGyver,” reviving the character that uses his scientific smarts to get out of jams in unconventional ways, has improved its 8 p.m. time period by 29%. The ratings have helped lift the 9 p.m. show “Hawaii Five-0” by 10% to 12.2 million viewers. At 10 p.m., “Blue Bloods” has gained 6%, rising to 13.9 million viewers. “ I know H50-Fans got very angry when Lenkov said the same in an interview; but it's a fact that the reboot helped in getting more viewers and better ratings for H50 this season.

Additionally, MacGyver has very good ratings on reruns (more than 4 million live viewers per episode). Other reruns on Friday don't even make a third of these numbers. DVR ratings are very good as well - DVR ratings included, the show had around 10 million viewers per episode. So I guess CBS is looking at the longterm profits, not just at the potential live ratings.

There will be a new series regular for Season 2!

Source: http://tvline.com/2017/06/16/quantico-seas...st-changes-abc/

I wonder if that will be Bozer's new girlfriend... Or MacGyver's new girlfriend... Or Jack's new girlfriend... Cue Riley and/or Nikki and/or Sarah being jealous and lots of relationship drama... laugh.gif

More regular characters?

Though, if it's to just add drama... that's a bit of a typical cliche, and not a good one either.

I hate to say it, but the more "regular" characters they add, the less MacGyver this show becomes. Many of these other characters already overshadow the main character as it is and that's not a good thing.

*sigh*

This reboot frustrates me... lol

Don't I know it laugh.gif

I'm pretty sure they got a budget bump for the second season (which is good). And I guess they always wanted to have more regulars since it's all about "Team Phoenix".

Thing is - like you said - that MacGyver doesn't get enough screen time as it is.

They wanted Team Phoenix (or maybe had the order from CBS to do a team show). Yet they still named it "MacGyver", promoted it as a 2-person-buddy-show à la Lethal Weapon (with all the Mac-and-Jack-Hashtags) at first, then switched to MacGyver-only promo (Mac is back). Additionally, they only have MacGyver (or at least his hands) in the opening title sequence. It's still marked as a one-man-show which is confusing for fans of the original show or people watching the reboot without knowing anything about it.

Alas, so be it. More season regulars.

No matter if she's coming in as a love interest or not (which I think she will be eventually if not right at the beginning), it will change the team dynamics.

I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not. Bozer already changed the team dynamics. He was written as "the best friend" for the pilot and clearly intended to stay the clueless "alibi black guy" that bookends the episodes. Then they realized they wanted him as a full team member. All the established storylines in the first few episodes "vanished" with no explanation (e.g. Bozer posing as Riley's girlfriend for her parole officer, his movie career). Some were tied up later on (e.g. Riley getting the last few digits of his phone number) after they had neglected it.

In the first few episodes, Riley was always with Mac and Jack on missions (despite her not being a fully trained agent yet). When Bozer joined, he suddenly was on missions, too - which makes no sense (he's not trained, either. also - why do you need a guy to make masks on every mission?). So, they paired him up with Riley and they do other work in the meantime. It makes sense since Riley can do most of the computer stuff from the base anyway.

Since this new character is a "real" agent, I guess she will go on the missions with Mac and Jack while Riley and Bozer team up again for side-missions. We can bet on drama stuff happening if both are dating other people (as Lenkov implied in a recent interview).

But who knows. Maybe she's MacGyver's half-sister or something. I'm still waiting on a plot twist concerning MacGyver's father and I'm already dreading it. Either he was a secret agent as well or he had another secret life...

Looks like Bobby Roth will direct another Episode in September. He also directed Episode 1x05 (Toothpick) for Season 1.

Hm... " highly featured role with potential upgrade" - does this mean pay upgrade or role upgrade? (e.g. as a recurring cast member)

MAJOR SPOILER ALERT for Episode 2x01 and potential recurring characters for Season 2 - read at your own risk: http://moviehole.net/2017119866exclusive-m...eason-2-details


The reboot of “MacGyver” was hot property in 2016, and the second season has been highly anticipated, with details slowly being revealed. CBS has scheduled the 2nd go for September 29, and Moviehole have some extra details on the season to keep you going until we find out more. Beware the spoilers! If you want to go in fresh, stop reading now…


> The first episode of season 2 is entitled “DIY or DIE”.
> We will see 2 new female characters in Olivia Cage and an intel extraction specialist named Agent Carmen. Carmen has been described as “late twenties, fierce, focused and utterly fascinating”. She’s also got history with Matty. Carmen has not yet been cast, but it’s believed Cage has, but the actress is thus far unknown.
>Olivia Cage is “a woman to be reckoned with” and someone we will get to know well.
>Jack Till returns as MacGyver, alongside Matty (Meredith Eaton), Riley (Tristin Mays), Bozer (Justin Hires) and Jack (George Eads).
>Filming is set to begin in a few days, as confirmed by some cast members on their social media.
>Much of the first episode is set in Turkey.
>Some of the plot: Lieutenant Diaz is being held for ransom by a small terrorist cell, who are demanding $5 million for his release. Diaz has been missing for 2 years, following an assumption he’d been killed in action. Jack, Bozer, Riley and Matty join Carmen in an “off the books” rescue mission in Turkey, where they meet with Lt. Diaz’s parents. Carmen gets discharged from the CIA for her involvement in the mission, but immediately gets employed by the team. Through information gathered, they discover that the missing lieutenant is being held outside of Istanbul. Olivia Cage also gets involved with the rescue mission.
>Still a few roles to fill for the episode, including the Diaz family, a character named Dominguez and some guards and soldiers.


Who's Jack Till? Must be Lucas' evil twin brother laugh.gif
