I'm not annoyed with LA starts, but an Alaskan or Hawaiian start would be really cool! :colors

No, I'll tell ya what I think:
Hawaiian start
Alaskan finish.

Now, that's I think is pretty cool!  :colors
And of course the year where CBS has the worst Pilots is when they do well :) :) :)

So pissed off right now.
In May, CBS put MacGyver on the fall schedule on a title, wing and a prayer after discarding the pilot made last spring, keeping only star Lucas Till and co-star George Eads. Hawaii Five-0‘s Peter Lenkov was recruited to conceive a new reboot of the 1980s series. In four months, a new pilot episode was written, cast and filmed and a series got up and running for a September premiere. Awareness was great, courtesy of the familiar title, reviews were pretty terrible, but in the end, CBS’ bet on remaking MacGyver for purely financial reasons seems to be paying off, at least in Week 1, with a big opening by Friday standards, 1.7 Live+same day rating in adults 18-49 and 10.9 million viewers at 8 PM last night. A self-starter at 8 PM, it towered over the competition as the highest-rated and most watched program on Friday. It was the most watched Friday scripted premiere since CBS’ Blue Bloods in 2010 (13.02m) and highest rated in 18-49 since NBC’s Dracula in 2013-14 (1.8 ). Overall, MacGyver was the top scripted telecast on Friday night since Hawaii Five-0 in January 2014 (1.8 ) and logged the biggest CBS premiere in the 8 PM hour since 2005 in viewers (Ghost Whisperer) and 2012 in 18-49 (Undercover Boss).

MacGyver, which was up +87% in viewers, +42% in A18-49 from The Amazing Race’s series opener in the slot last fall, gave a boost to Lenkov’s Hawaii Five-0 at 9 PM (1.3 in 18-49, 10.09 million), which was up +30% in the demo and +22% in viewers from last year’s season premiere. Blue Bloods (1.3, 10.4 million) was on par. CBS won every hour of primetime in 18-49 and total viewers.
The premiere of “MacGyver” led CBS to an across-the-board win Friday, scoring the night’s best ratings in both adults 18-49 (1.7) and total viewers (10.89 million). It was the best performance by a Friday scripted series since “Hawaii Five-0” put up a 1.8 in January 2014.

The strong premiere for “MacGyver” helped “Five-0” (1.3) improve by 0.3 on last season’s premiere, while “Blue Bloods” was even with last fall’s debut with a 1.3.
CBS really needs to stop bringing back returning players, except for the following scenarios:

All-Stars or another full-returnee season. A season full of pre-jury boots would be pretty sweet. How many people would want to play again, if given the opportunity? Plenty of choices there.

Competition cameos. Not every week, though. Scattered throughout the course of the season and up until a certain point.

Rachel won her returning season. Dan came in second place in the coach twist season. Nicole won this time around. Seriously, this is getting ridiculous. TPTB aren't doing themselves a favor by shoving these people down our throat like this.

"There's no question which of the two came out on top. MacGyver averaged a solid 1.7 rating among adults 18-49 and 10.9 million viewers."

Just suffered thru an hour of the new MacGyver...have a feeling that slot will be opening up PDQ.


Actually, I checked it out, too. Totally not Patty & Selma's MacGyver  :funny: Lots of negativity on their Facebook Page

Yes, it was really bad. It will probably be axed quite quickly.
