Status: (Updated 11/15/17) This show has managed to work its way back into the Top 25 based on total viewers on a pretty regular basis, so I am moving it back to Renewal Possible status. After this week, though, CBS goes into its usual scheduling hi jinks that mean MacGyver will rarely air more than two new episodes in a row the rest of the way between preemptions and repeats. How its numbers fare through that will determine its status at season end and it could definitely benefit from a Call to Action from its fans.
