CBS came out on top in the Friday ratings race, with MacGyver, Hawaii Five-O and Blue Bloods all scoring big numbers, helping the network to an easy victory on the night.

George Eads will be leaving CBS’ drama series MacGyver, on which has he co-starred since the pilot. I hear he is still filming the show and is slated to wrap production in early December. While Eads has been released from his series regular contract and his characterJack Dalton is being written out, I hear he is not being killed off, with the door left open for Eads to possibly return as a guest star. MacGyver, a reimagining of the 1985 show, stars Lucas Till, with Eads…

‘MacGyver’ Star George Eads to Exit CBS Drama

“MacGyver” star George Eads has exited the CBS drama after two and a half seasons, an individual with knowledge of the matter tells TheWrap.

Eads has co-starred on the series alongside lead Lucas Till, portraying MacGyver’s field partner Jack Dalton, since the show’s start in 2016.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, which first reported Eads’ departure, the actor stormed off the set in October after an unspecified “altercation” and had since voiced a desire to part ways with the show. His final episode is expected to air in 2019.

This is not the first time Eads has exited a show amid conflict. A longtime CBS mainstay, he was one of the original stars of “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.”

Eads played Nick Stokes on the crime procedural for 15 seasons but took a leave of absence toward the end of the show’s run after an on-set confrontation with one of the show’s writers. It was later announced that he would not return to the show following Season 15, and he did not participate in the two-hour series finale.

Representatives for Eads and CBS declined to comment on the reason his departure.

‘MacGyver’ Stunt Coordinator Justin Sundquist Out of ICU

The “MacGyver” stunt coordinator who was hospitalized with a serious head injury last week is now awake and out of the ICU, a CBS spokesperson confirmed on Monday.

The stunt coordinator, Justin Sundquist, was injured in an on-set accident late last Monday and was placed in a medically induced coma due to head injuries. He remains hospitalized.

“The production team is cooperating with the authorities investigating the accident, and our primary concern at this time is Justin’s health and well-being,” CBS Television Studios said in a statement at the time.

According to an individual familiar with the matter, Sundquist was injured when he fell during a stunt involving a moving vehicle.

“He’s not out of the woods yet,” a friend of Sundquist’s told Deadline, which first reported the news. “He’s responding and communicating with his friends and family. He has a long road ahead of him, but he’s on a better road now. We’re all praying for the positivity to continue.”

Sundquist settled a lawsuit with CBS last year after claiming that “serious violations” of safety protocol on the set of “Hawaii Five-0” led to a separate injury.

The stuntman was working as a stunt double for Alex O’Loughlin’s character Steve McGarrett when he was “struck and seriously injured” by a speeding car in 2016. In the lawsuit, he accused the production of “serious violations of minimum industry standard safety protocols.”

With reboots of “Charmed” and “Magnum PI” on the way, TheWrap looks at TV revivals that never should’ve happened

“Charlie’s Angels”
“Charlie’s Angels” perfectly captured the goofiness of the ’70s, but it felt painfully out of date in 2011. Critics and audiences agreed: It was canceled after three episodes.

“Ironside”
Blair Underwood has done some memorable TV work, starting with his career-making role on “L.A. Law.” But his 2013 take on the Raymond Burr crime drama was yanked from NBC’s air even faster than you can say “LAX” or “The Event.”

“The Bionic Woman”
A 2007 take on the “Six Million Dollar Man” spinoff, this NBC show’s original sin was casting “Battlestar Galactica” ass-kicker Katee Sackhoff as the recurring villain rather than the lead.

“Knight Rider”
Like so much ’80s television, the original “Knight Rider” is over-celebrated. But NBC’s 2008 version lacked even the original’s dumb charms — and David Hasselhoff.

“The Returned”
SundanceTV had an international hit on its hands with the French-language moody zombie thriller. An English adaptation was of course inevitable, but Damon Lindelof‘s A&E remake never quite found its audience, despite gaining the support of critics. Luckily, the original French series is still ongoing.

“Kojak”
Another police procedural bound to be rebooted, Telly Savalas starred as the chrome-domed detective in the 1970’s series. Ving Rhames took the reins in 2005, but only made it nine episodes.

“Melrose Place”
The classic nighttime soap got a CW makeover in 2009, but the brand wasn’t enough to keep an audience interested, especially on a network that was doing rich young people drama better on shows like “Gossip Girl” and even “90210.”

“Gracepoint”
Broadchurch captivated U.K. audiences with its tense murder mystery format, but when the U.S. tried to replicate its magic – with original star David Tennant in tow – it just never quite managed. Needless to say, Broadchurch is producing a third season, and Gracepoint was canceled after just one.

“24: Legacy”

Corey Hawkins starred in this Kiefer Sutherland-less “24” reboot that maintained the show’s real-time structure and some of the original show’s flaws, but also managed to be cancelled in real time. “24: Legacy” had a big debut following the Super Bowl in 2017 but dropped off sharply afterwards and was done after just one season. But at the time of the cancellation, Fox was still considering continuing the “24” franchise in the future.

“MacGyver”

Like the hero that shares the show’s name, the reboot of “MacGyver” cobbled together a bunch of unusual parts to make yet another procedural that’s somehow still kicking, despite constant lampooning from “The Simpsons” and “SNL’s” “MacGruber” sketches.

“Fuller House”

Netflix’s rebooted take on “Full House” is doing just fine for the streaming service, having been renewed for a fourth season, but it got off to a truly rocky start with critics who complained that the nostalgia factor of seeing a grown up DJ, Stephanie and Kimmy Gibler wore off quickly.

“The Odd Couple”

Matthew Perry and Thomas Lennon were no Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon, or Tony Randall and Jack Klugman for that matter. The reboot lasted three seasons, but the canned, laugh track sitcom felt very old fashioned and led to some miserable ratings. Matthew Perry even tweeted out one month ahead of schedule that the show was cancelled when he saw his face painted over on the door to his stage door.

Fun fact for TV shows on the bubble: You don’t actually have to have stellar ratings to get renewed. Yes, Nielsen numbers are a big part of the decision-making process when the broadcast networks decide what series to ax and what to keep ahead of their upfront presentations, but they aren’t everything. Each year, plenty of shows with modest viewership squeak by. Scroll through the TheWrap’s gallery to see the 11 lowest-rated TV shows of the 2017-18 season — so far– that got renewed. (Of course we counted “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” here, because of that last-minute NBC pickup). All ratings in this story come from Nielsen’s “most current” data stream, which includes a week’s worth of delayed viewing where available. Least-viewed is first, most-watched last.  And, yes, there are ties.

“Ransom” (CBS): 0.4

“Elementary” (CBS): 0.6

“Madam Secretary” (CBS): 1.0

“Instinct” (CBS): 1.1.

“For the People” (ABC): 1.1

“A.P. Bio” (NBC): 1.1

*”Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (Fox): 1.2

“MacGyver” (CBS): 1.2

“Blindspot” (NBC): 1.2

“Man With a Plan” (CBS): 1.2

“Fresh Off the Boat” (ABC): 1.3
