CBS didn’t show us anything new by the official 2017 Star Trek teaser, but will the same be true of its other new franchises Training Day, or MacGyver? Judge for yourself, as the latest movie-TV reboots get official trailers fro the 2016-17 season, looking far different than anything you remember.

Now that one of CBS’ most visible 2016 decisions is out of the way, the eye network sets its gaze on the new crop of pickups, and what they might replace. Officially ordered to series now are a Training Day sequel with Bill Paxton as the lead, and a thrice-baked MacGyver reboot, among others.

CBS’ adaptation of Antoine Fuqua’s Training Day made clear early on that it would reverse the racial dynamic between its two leads, but there is an obscure bingo winner out there who had Bill Paxton replacing Denzel Washington. That’s right, the guy from Big Love is your new corrupt cop, and King Kong … well, probably has a thing or two on him.

Have you ever watched The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and thought to yourself, “Man, I would love to play Battleship with celebrities and occasionally fall over things and suffer a string of comical minor injuries?” Well good news! Universal announced yesterday that starting in 2017, you’ll be able to Trip Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon at a brand new attraction at Universal Studios Florida. On The Tonight Show, Fallon said his ride would be like Universal’s wildly popular Harry Potter attractions “except instead of Harry Potter, it’s me, and instead of Hogwarts, it’s New York City.”

A few weeks ago, I was in a local drug store by my apartment in New York City. Near the back of the store, there’s a discount rack where everything is 25 percent off its the original price. Mixed in with overstocked seasonal items was a LEGO set for the 2010 movie ‘Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.’ Included in the set was a mini LEGO figure of Jake Gyllenhaal. He’s riding an ostrich. As I stared in disbelief at LEGO Jake Gyllenhaal riding an ostrich, it was like staring into an alternate future where these were the kind of movies that Gyllenhaal was still making … instead of a glorious movie like ‘Nightcrawler.’

Million Dollar Arm’ is fine. It stars Jon Hamm, who is fine, as a fine sports agent named J.B. Bernstein who tries to find some fine baseball players in India in this fine true story. And he succeeds, recruiting both Dinesh Patel (Madhur Mittal, who is fine) and Rinku Singh (Suraj Sharma, also fine) who, after a rocky start, both wind up being fine. Lake Bell also stars, and isn’t given a whole lot to do, but she’s fine.
After you see ‘Million Dollar Arm,’ people will ask you, “How was ‘Million Dollar Arm’?” And you will respond, “It’s fine,” then go about your life and probably never once think about ‘Million Dollar Arm’ again on your life. Which is fine.
