Magnum P.I. saved by NBC after being axed by CBS

As the outdated proverb goes, “one man’s trash is one other man’s treasure.” While we actually aren’t calling the Magnum P.I. remake trash, the sentiment of the assertion actually applies right here because the just lately canceled CBS present has discovered a brand new dwelling on NBC in keeping with Deadline (opens in new tab). This is wonderful information for people who love Jay Hernandez’s portrayal of the savvy non-public investigator Thomas Magnum. When CBS first introduced that they might not be renewing Magnum P.I. again in May, followers have been instantly surprised and even hoped one other platform would decide up the present. I can’t imagine CBS canceled Magnum P.I. which is one among my favourite exhibits. Hopefully a wiser community will decide up this entertaining program.May 17, 2022See moreWait a second CBS you canceled Magnum P.I. are u loopy. Magnum and Blue Blood are the 2 greatest exhibits on the community. #MagnumPI #SaveMagnumPIMay 18, 2022See moreWhat made the cancellation a little bit of a shocker for a lot of is that Magnum P.I. had been on the air for 4 profitable seasons and as Deadline studies, it was a “high 25 present in complete viewers.” Additionally, TVLine (opens in new tab)states that the collection ranked ninth of the 14 CBS dramas and each CSI: Vegas (6.8 mil/0.8) and S.W.A.T. (6.5 mil/0.8), which averaged decrease viewership numbers than Magnum P.I., earned renewals on the community. These figures recommend that CBS might have canceled the present for causes aside from scores.This concept is additional supported by CBS Entertainment president Kelly Kahl. Kahl instructed TVLine with regard to not renewing the collection, “You have some robust choices to make and you’ve got a lot of elements — and I’m not going to rule [the licensing fee] out as one among them. It was a terrific group to work with, and one of many harder choices we needed to make.”Regardless of the why, that brings us again to the truth that Magnum P.I. is headed to NBC. The broadcaster has ordered 20 new episodes of the drama and can allegedly break up them between two seasons. There isn’t any official phrase but on when the collection will make its season 5 debut. On an fascinating be aware, this isn’t the primary time that NBC or its affiliate networks have picked up a present from one other broadcaster. NBC acquired the hit cop comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine after it was axed by Fox and extra just lately, the upcoming season of Love Island USA is headed to Peacock this summer season. Will you be tuning into Magnum P.I. when new episodes are launched?  By the way in which, season 4 is presently streaming on Paramount Plus.
