CBS’s Friday Night ‘Comfort Food’ Paying Off

If the TV industry gave out an award for the most uncool night of programming, CBS’s Friday lineup would win it hands down. MacGyver and Hawaii Five-O are reboots of old series, an anathema to TV critics who believe the industry is in a golden age of creativity. They lead into Blue Bloods, a combination cop show and family drama, featuring the 72-year-old Tom Selleck, the quintessential 1980s TV star. All three shows rank among the top 20 most-watched broadcast shows in primetime.
