If you’re old enough to remember MacGyver, the 80’s TV show that featured a bright know-it-all dude who knew how to make the most of any dire situation and figure out a way to get out of it, then you’re probably excited to hear a new MacGyver series is in the works. If you haven’t seen any MacGyver episode yet, a first trailer for the new MacGyver show will tell you everything you need to know about the character. More →

Appearing on Bloomberg TV earlier today, CBS CEO Les Moonves said that Apple is actively trying to shore up content deals ahead of its planned TV subscription service. While early reports indicated that Apple was hoping to launch the service to coincide with the release of its fourth-gen Apple TV, those plans were reportedly pushed back to 2016 due to sticking points regarding content licensing and pricing.
“Apple is having conversations with everyone about doing their own streaming services,” Moonves said during the interview. “We have had those conversations, as have the other networks. Do I think something will happen? Probably, but I do not know when.”
It’s the end of June. The weather is heating up and the concerts are kicking off and blockbuster movies are trickling out every week, but it’s never too early to start thinking about the fall TV schedule. As of this week, we now know the complete schedule for all five of the major networks, including the premiere dates of every new show coming this fall.
Of all the shows premiering this fall, few are getting as much buzz as Supergirl, the first comic book show to land on CBS. Two weeks ago, CBS released an extended 6-minute trailer for the series, but last Friday the entire pilot leaked online in full HD. Originally scheduled to premiere in November, torrent users the world over can watch the episode right now.
On Monday, we shared the cancellations and renewals for the five major networks: NBC, ABC, CBS, Fox and The CW. There weren’t too many surprises on the list, but it doesn’t really matter, because what we’re really interested in are the new shows that will be premiering over the next 12 months.
Up next, we’re taking a look at all of the trailers that CBS has put online.
It’s always a shame when your favorite show gets canceled before its time, but if you see your show on this list: rejoice! You’ve got at least another year of episodes coming your way.
The month of May is crunch time for network television shows, as this is the time when networks decide to cut bait with shows with low ratings. We now have the complete list of shows on all four major networks that won’t be returning in the fall — check it out below.
Taking the reins as a new host on an established talk show is a difficult process, but James Corden and his writers are already finding ways to make The Late Late Show their own.

Just as we had all hoped, it looks like HBO’s announcement of an over-the-top service is starting a revolution in the TV industry. The Wall Street Journal reports that CBS is planning to offer its own standalone streaming service for Showtime as well. CBS CEO Leslie Moonves said that the online offering will “fairly definitively” be available in 2015, making next year the most terrifying in recent history for cable providers across the United States.

CBS is one of a number of broadcasters enraged that Internet TV startup Aereo is still in business. At one point, the company said that it would discontinue its over-the-air broadcasts if Aereo was permitted to keep operating. Aereo, as many will recall, allows users to stream TV to their computers and mobile devices for $8 per month, and it skirts standard licensing fees by pulling free TV transmissions out of the air with physical HD antennas and then piping them over the web. While broadcasters have sued the startup in an effort to shut it down, CBS CEO Leslie Moonves’s recent comments suggest he doesn’t think his company would really suffer at all if Aereo wins in court.
