CBS is ready to jumpstart its fall season with a paper clip, rubber band, and lighter.
The network has ordered six new shows, including a reboot of the 1980s action series "MacGyver" and an adaptation of the movie "Training Day." The new shows also include comedies with big names as headliners: Matt LeBlanc and Joel McHale.
CBS has a lot of holes to fill in its schedule this fall. "The Good Wife" ended, "CSI: Cyber" was canceled (leaving the network without a "CSI" series for the first time in 16 years), and "Supergirl" is moving to The CW.
Here's a rundown of all the new CBS shows:
Cast: Michael Weatherly as 'Dr. Jason Bull', Freddy Rodriguez, Geneva Carr, Chris Jackson, Jaime Lee Kirchner, Annabelle Attanasio
Synopsis: A drama inspired by the early career of Dr. Phil McGraw as the founder of one of the most prolific trial consulting firms of all time.
