HBO has undergone some notable transition in recent months, adding a new programming president in the wake of multiple lukewarm developments, but the first major order at its new regime is at least a hopeful one.

A ways back, we’d heard that the ever-clever MacGyver had reinvented himself with a new CBS series under Furious 7 helmer James Wan, returning to that faithful well of a young origin story. That dream is today reality for he Eye, as CBS grants an official pilot order to a new generation of MacGyver, with sexy results.
Even with 'Parks and Recreation' guest star Jean-Ralphio's increasingly infrequent appearances (a result of actor Ben Schwartz's leading role on Showtime's 'House of Lies'), the NBC comedy has gotten a great deal of mileage out of introducing the character's equally off-putting family members.

There's no more need to talk nonsense about Bob Loblaw, Barry Zuckerkorn is back! Yet more recurring players of the first three seasons have signed on for Netflix's forthcoming revival of 'Arrested Development' season 4, as Henry Winkler and Scott Baio have signed on to reprise their roles as Bluth family attorney(s) Barry Zuckerkorn and Bob Loblaw. When last we saw the characters however, Michael Bluth had dismissed Barry's services for Bob, so what nonsense could have befallen Bob Loblaw?
