If the show isn't really about Magnum, maybe Selleck can do it between Blue Bloods?

It'd be nice to see him reprise the role.

If its on CBS again maybe they can cross over with Hawaii 5-0, as the the original shows never could.

^ Do we really need another investigation procedural case-of-the-week show like Magnum PI? I mean we've already got a million CSIs and NCIS and Bones and whatever, it's all a bit dull IMO. I'd rather the networks try something interesting like what HBO just did rebooting WestWorld as a series. Something like that.

'Dinner for Five'.

that was a great show and format.

The Hollywood Reporter does roundtable discussions with various actors, writers, directors, etc., but the conversations aren't organic and the moderator often times interrupts the flow. Jon Favreau did a great job bringing together seemingly random guests that resulted in really funny conversations and storytelling.

The networks dont work that way.
Ratings that will keep a show on the air on SyFy or HBO Starz wont hold up for them. 'Interesting' shows are often niche shows, with smaller audiences.

Nothing inherently wrong with procedurals.
Often its not the cases its the camaraderie among the characters people tune in for.
Same applies to comedies of which there are many that follow the same badic formula.
Those type shows sell though, and are network staples because they do.

Anyhow, all CSI shows are off the air, of the 3 NCIS shows, NCIS LA is on its last season, and Bones is, too.
That takes you from a million and four to 2. stick out tongue

Yeah I get what you're saying but I'm not speaking from business feasibility, I'm speaking as an audience member what I'd like to see. Procedurals/sitcoms are the easy cash cow because they syndicate, but I don't find them interesting.

Networks can always green light another Monk or CSI whatever, but historically the most memorable and impactful things have been serials like Lost where people keep tuning back in to see what happens next.

^^^So true.

Not sure how old you are, but as someone who lived through TV before Cable, the great thing is, at least now there are choices for viewers that dont like the same old. And thank God for that!

All TV shows will probably get rebooted some day. Take L.A. Law as an example. Steven Bochco recently stated that he is developing an L.A. Law reboot for NBC this coming fall.

Street Hawk should get a reboot since no-one really remembers it, I swear I thought I had invented that show until Bravo ran it in the late '90s, none of my friends could remember it, I mean, it's basically Knight Rider with a bike!
