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. CBS.com

Status: (Updated 1/17/17) This show returned from its short Winter break with its best numbers since September. If it can build on this, or at least hold relatively stable, then it should have a decent chance of surviving into a second season. Though I would never call that a sure-thing on genre-averse CBS.
