Description: A secret agent unlike any other, MacGyver escapes perilous situations with nothing but a paperclip, his trusty Swiss Army knife and his wit. A dynamic reimagining of the hit television series, this action-packed origin story follows the young MacGyver as he returns from war, a hero with an idealistic vision of saving the world. He and his late father’s best friend partner to form the clandestine Phoenix Foundation. Using his scientific know-how and resourcefulness, MacGyver—alongside his intrepid team—undertakes missions to save lives and change the world.

Status: (Updated 11/25/16) This show seems to have settled in at around the 1.1 ratings range based on the overnights which is okay for a Friday entry, but not spectacular. It has received a full season pickup so it still has the rest of the season to prove itself, though CBS is currently playing the preemption game it typically does at this time of year which will do nothing to help the show’s ratings. Its next new episodes will be on December 9th.
