CBS to reprise ‘Magnificent’

'Becker,' 'Turks' also snapped up by Eye Web

CBS on Monday reached an agreement with MGM to bring back last season’s midseason series “Magnificent Seven” as a backup again next season.

CBS has now ordered 13 episodes of three midseason series, including the Paramount comedy “Becker” with Ted Danson and Studios USA’s drama “Turks.”

“Magnificent Seven,” from MGM and Trilogy Entertainment, was a respectable Saturday-night performer on CBS last season, averaging an 8.2/15 in its nine broadcasts this spring.

When “Magnificent Seven” aired at 9 p.m., it fared worse than the show it was replacing, “Early Edition.” At 8 p.m., however, the show improved on the performance of the now-canceled “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman” by 44% among adults 25-54 and 13% among adults 18-49.

“Magnificent Seven” is a Western based on the classic motion picture. “Becker,” executive produced by Dave Hackel, stars Danson as a complaining doctor. “Turks,” executive produced by Robert Singer, stars William Devane as a police sergeant and patriarch of an Irish family of cops in Chicago.
