MacGyver on CBS: The Gadget Guy Is Back For a New Generation

MacGyver CBS Premieres: Friday, Sept. 23 at 8/7CT Who’s In It? Lucas Till, George Eads, Sandrine Holt, Justin Hires Mac’s back! The cult-favorite series that ran from 1985-1992 and made Richard Dean Anderson a star gets a fun and pulse-pounding update from Hawaii Five-0’s Peter M.

Return to Shondaland! What to Expect From Grey’s, HTGAWM (VIDEO)

Tonight marks the return of a kinda-sorta version of ABC’s “TGIT” lineup — formerly an “all Shondaland, all the time” evening that marked a must-see, deliciously soapy fest for fans of Shonda Rhimes’ signature brand of storytelling.

Which is what Kirkman — newly demoted HUD secretary and the country’s “designated survivor” (yes, it’s a […]

BLINDSPOT NBC Returns: Sept. 14 at 10pm Where We Left Off: Weller’s livid, Jane’s cuffed, Mayfair’s dead and no one trusts anyone. Blindspotters, have you caught your breath after those whiz-bang episodes that lead up to the show’s Season 1 finale? Prepare to lose it all over again when the NBC ratings hit returns in a new Wednesday night time slot. “The show picks up three months after the season finale,” says series creator Martin Gero. “They’re all in a dark space, as you can imagine. They’ve all been through hell. The first episode is really about how they can […]
