MacGyver (9/23 @ 8/7c on CBS)
Premise: MacGyver. The man who can build a nuclear weapon out of a stick of chewing gum and a paper towel roll is back.
Reaction: I love the 80s. I love MacGyver, but not sure about a reboot.
Star Power: 4 – I recognize the sidekick, but I don’t know where from.
Prediction: Friday night is “death night.” But this is probably the only night this show might work. I can see people tuning in to see what they do with it. Chance of renewal 45%
The Exorcist (9/23 @ 9/8c on FOX)
Premise: A woman thinks her house is possessed by a demon, one which is after her daughter.
Reaction: Creepy. Also not sure this is sustainable for a whole season (much less a second season)
Star Power: 7 – Geena Davis and Cameron from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
Prediction: Like I said, I am not sure how this works for a whole season. I suspect people will turn this off at best half-way through the season if not the first episode. Chance of renewal 5%
