Perhaps only Angus MacGyver could craft a second season pickup out of the tepid demo ratings from the freshman installment of the MacGyver reboot. Fortunately, he had a decent total audience to work with. Although season two has been drawing lower numbers than last year, I suspect CBS will still renew MacGyver for season three.

I would be totally upset my disabled hubby and I look forward to watching this all week and I would stop watching CBS if they canceled cuz this show and big brother ate our two favorite shows mostly we watch crime scene shows
I am over the moon that MacGyver has been renewed! I have several tv shows that I feel are must watch, even if they are reruns. This is one of my top shows. I watched it as a child and loved it. When I heard they planed to reboot it I hoped they would do it justice. I had hoped that some how they might even sneak in Richard Dean Anderson. Maybe as an early mentor or as his Dad, Uncle just a nice nod to the shows history. Many of my favorite shows this year didn’t make it, yet… Read more »
This show has truly inspired me to learn more. I recommend it to anyone who thinks learning is stupid – What can I say? It changed my mind … And that’s saying something!
MacGyver is an awesome tv show. I really enjoyed watching the first two seasons. I really look forward to watching more seasons to come.
I love the new MacGyver and am so happy that there is a Season 3 of MacGyver. The series is absolutely brilliant, especially Lucas Till is absolutely great. Of course I hope for Season 4 and so on. Great of CBS that it continues. Greetings Ute 🙂
I enjoy watching MacGyver it’s intertaining. If it’s cancelled I will have to find another channel to watch something I can enjoy
I can’t say enough how thrilled I am that MacGyver is being renewed for a third season that was a wise choice on cbs’s part. I really like the characters I get into the characters I don’t want the characters to be changed. This is a good story these are good characters this can go on for years and years I can see a season 12 of MacGyver and would be thrilled if it went on forever.
Love this show and def am thrilled if it has renewed for a third season! Yeah!
