Some of the new TV shows are very popular with older viewers.\r\n\r\n"Bull"\r\n\r\nAre you really surprised? This CBS show about a tough, middle-aged jury consultant hits the Boomer sweet spot.\r\n\r\n"Designated Survivor"\r\n\r\nKiefer Sutherland, 49, as a longtime underachiever suddenly vaulted to the Oval Office? We got a Boomer fantasy here, people, just in time for new TV shows.\r\n\r\n"MacGyver"\r\n\r\nMaybe the critics don't like this reboot, but the over-50s who remember the 1980s action-adventure original sure do.\r\n\r\n"This Is Us"\r\n\r\nThis multi-generational family drama from NBC has characters everyone can relate to.\r\n\r\n"Kevin Can Wait"\r\n\r\nKevin James, icon to over-50s everywhere? Oh, yes, if this CBS sitcom is any indication.\r\n\r\n"The Great Indoors"\r\n\r\nCBS sitcom has Joel McHale as a cranky editor who has to wrangle a crew of spoiled millennials. Hmmm, why would over-50s find that concept appealing?\r\n\r\n"Pure Genius"\r\n\r\nCBS hospital drama with a high-tech twist. You don't need anything more in new TV shows.\r\n\r\n"Timeless"\r\n\r\nNBC does time travel. Even though the three heroes are 30-somethings, the concept is universal - and, well, timeless.\r\n\r\n"Man with a Plan"\r\n\r\nCBS family sitcom with '90s icon Matt LeBlanc in the starring role.\r\n\r\n"Lethal Weapon"\r\n\r\nOver-50s are precisely the folks best acquainted with the buddy-cop franchise on which this Fox series is based.\r\n\r\n"Conviction"\r\n\r\nThe reviews haven't been nice, but a lot of older viewers seem to like this ABC procedural with Hayley Atwell.\r\n\r\n"Speechless"\r\n\r\nThis ABC outing offers family comedy with a twist - along with Gen X icon Minnie Driver as a mom.
