New Friday Show Survival Chances
MacGyver (CBS) - Poor. This is a tough timeslot for a scripted show and I just don't think people are clamoring for a MacGyver reboot. It might have had a chance somewhere like Sunday at 8pm but on Friday at 8pm? Doubt it.
The Exorcist (FOX) - Poor. This isn't a horrible gamble for FOX here but I just don't ultimately seeing it do enough even on a lower expectation night. Like MacGyver, is this really something anybody wants on TV?
