CBS Renews 'MacGyver'

CBS announced today that MacGyver has been renewed for Season 2. The update of the classic action-adventure series joins Bull as the only two fall freshman dramas the network has decided to bring back for another season.
MacGyver has been a bit of a surprise success for the network. Expectations for the show going into its fall premiere were decidedly low after an early panning by critics, but its numbers have told a different story, improving its time slot vs. the previous year in both total viewers and the adults 18-49 demographic.
Look for Season 2 of MacGyver this fall.

    Many character names are borrowed from the original series, though only a few bare any resemblance to their original counterparts. Patricia Thornton - Peter Thornton (Mac's boss at Phoenix) Matty Webber - Matt Webber set-up Pete so Matt could take over Phoenix as Pete's successor Jack Dalton - Mac's childhood friend - great at getting himself (and Mac) INTO, rather than out of, trouble Wilt Bozer - brothers Milt and Wilt Bozer made a couple of minor appearances Nikki Carpenter - Mac's polar opposite fellow agent, though never really a love interet (likely introduced to be one, but never became one) Agent Bannister - old agent-buddiy of Mac's, married a communist spy Penny Parker - played by Terri Hatcher - aspiring actress Mac met in Europe, she obecame one of Mac's dearst friends The Colton Family - "Mama", Frank, Jesse, & Billy (Cuba Gooding, Jr.) - the new rendition of the Coltons may be the best character "update" in this show - honors the originals while fully embracing new versions of the characters Murdoc - What can you say about Murdoc? He is "not your normal professional killer". (The current rendition lacks the flair Michael Des Barres brought to the character.)
