Magnum PI Saved by NBC

NBC has come to the rescue of Magnum PI. The procedural drama was canceled in May by CBS, despite decent and steady ratings over the course of its run. However, that will not prove to be the end of the line, with a rumored NBC pickup of the series ultimately proving to be true. NBC parent company Universal produces the series, which was one of the highest-rated series to be canceled this season. The NBC pickup is for two seasons, to run for a total of twenty episodes. Magnum PI is the first canceled series to have been rescued this season, and with contracts for network shows having expired on June 30, may ultimately be the only. Jay Hernandez, Perdita Weeks, Zachary Knighton and Amy Hill all star in the series and are expected to return after the move to NBC.
