This Friday sees the return of CBS’ hit new show ‘MacGyver’ and they’re pulling out all our favorite characters. This weeks episode, titled ‘Screwdriver’, will see the usual Mac, Jack, Riley, Bozer, and Thornton joined by Nikki, Sarah and everyone’s favorite bad guy, Murdoc as MacGyver tries to find a government mole leaking classified information to a group aiming to take down the Phoenix foundation.
The show looks set to continue its ratings success which started with the pilot episode hitting the top position for its time slot and has continued to come in either 1st or second for most of it’s run so far despite early episodes receiving some harsh criticism from fans. To their credit, Peter Linkov and his team appear to have taken the criticism on board and we’re now starting to see some of the criticized elements disappearing from the show with the Christmas episode being the most highly praised episode so far and if the trend continues we can expect to see the show getting more praise and continue to hold the number one spot.
MacGyver airs Friday nights 8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT on the CBS Television Network.
