What’s This TV Show About?
An action-adventure drama series airing on the NBC television network, the Magnum PI TV show stars Jay Hernandez, Perdita Weeks, Zachary Knighton, Stephen Hill, Amy Hill, and Tim Kang. This reboot of the 1980s TV show follows Thomas Magnum (Hernandez), a decorated former Navy SEAL who repurposes his military skills to become a private investigator. He lives in a guest cottage on Robin’s Nest, the luxurious estate where he works as a security consultant to supplement his P.I. business. The “majordomo” of the property is Juliet Higgins (Weeks), a beautiful and commanding disavowed MI:6 agent who keeps Magnum in line. When Magnum needs backup on a job, he turns to his trusted buddies and fellow POW survivors, chopper pilot Theodore “TC” Calvin (Hill) and Orville “Rick” Wright (Knighton), a former Marine door-gunner who now runs a nightclub. Magnum frequently has run-ins with police detective Gordon Katsumoto (Kang) and the two are more alike than either cares to admit. The unofficial “House Mom” and cultural curator of Robin’s Nest, Teuila “Kumu” Tuileta (Hill) is also one of Magnum’s biggest fans.
Season Five Ratings
The fifth season of Magnum PI averages a 0.28 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.36 million viewers. Compared to season four (which aired on CBS), that’s down by 33% in the demo and down by 36% in viewership in the live+same day ratings (including DVR playback through 3:00 AM). While these numbers don’t include further delayed or streaming viewing, they are a very good indicator of how a show is performing, especially when compared to others on the same channel. There can be other economic factors involved in a show’s fate, but typically the higher-rated series are renewed and the lower-rated ones are cancelled.

Will NBC cancel or renew Magnum PI for season six? Wasn’t it already renewed? An early report indicated NBC had picked up the series for seasons five and six of 10 episodes each. However, we later learned it was actually renewed for a fifth season of 20 episodes, perhaps to be split into two parts. Will there be a sixth season? NBCUniversal owns the series, so despite low linear ratings, I think the show will be renewed — as long as key cast members want to keep making the show.
