"Magnum P.I." (CBS) vs. "9-1-1" (Fox)
Mondays, 9 p.m.
No mustache (OK, so there's a goatee) -- but does this comma-less
remake of the '80s "Magnum, P.I." have teeth? It had better to go up against Ryan Murphy's "9-1-1," which is already established in the 9 o'clock time slot on Mondays.
The Connie Britton, Angela Bassett, Peter Krause and now Jennifer Love Hewitt-led
Fox drama averaged a big 3.0 rating in the core 18-49 demographic when counting a week's worth of delayed viewing. The freshman first-responder series was Fox's highest-rated entertainment show of the season, beating even "Empire."
In other words, better keep that Ferrari perfectly waxed and buffed, Magnum.
