This week in TV reboots, volume 2,587: The 1970s cop show S.W.A.T. is coming back to TV, courtesy of CBS.

The network has given the remake a pilot production commitment with a series penalty, according to our sister site Deadline.

Netflix Knows Why You're Still Hooked On Certain Series

21 September 2016 7:33 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Netflix releases the latest set of hooked episodes and it turns out nothing brings the world together like thrilling mysteries, young love, family drama and criminal behavior. Also, dogs...

The world's leading Internet TV network expanded last year's research to look at more than 30 additional series on a global scale (viewing spanned six continents) to pinpoint the episode that took watchers from casual to committed - that is, the episode that kept 70% of viewers watching through a first season's end. In doing so, Netflix discovered viewing behavior - and fandom - is quite universal. Regardless of whether they live in Argentina or Japan, members are not only getting hooked on similar episodes, but identifying with similar storylines.

Fear of the unknown turned watchers upside down for Stranger Things (Where's Will, where's Barb and what's a Demogorgon?!; episode 2) and had them bewitched with American Horror Story: Murder House (The dead roam »

In Defense of the Reboot: How Remakes Can Still Result in Great TV

8 September 2016 3:55 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s not just a cliche: Everything old is indeed new again on TV, particularly this upcoming season.

Fox is leading the drive, with three upcoming shows based on existing titles: “The Exorcist,” a new take on an old horror franchise; “Lethal Weapon,” a remake of the 1980s buddy comedy, and “Prison Break,” which is a continuation of that original series (expected in early 2017). CBS is also on the bandwagon, with new takes on “MacGyver” and “Training Day.”

The networks went through a similar exercise last year, and the results were mixed. At Fox, “Minority Report” was a dud, but the return of “The X-Files” was a massive ratings hit. CBS’ “Rush Hour” was a miss, but a new version of “The Odd Couple” is picking up steam.

Just as sequel and franchise mania envelops the film biz, it’s easy to knock TV for its constant desire to ride the wayback machine. »

‘Prison Break’ Social Buzz Zooms Above Rest of Broadcast TV Freshman Class

2 September 2016 1:55 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Is Fox’s revival of “Prison Break” poised to be a breakout hit?

The new iteration of the serial drama, which originally aired on Fox from 2005–09, has generated more than 10 times the user engagement on major social platforms since May than any other new broadcast show this TV season, according to a study by analytics firm ListenFirst Media. “Prison Break” also edged out every returning show on the fall broadcast schedule, with 19.5 million total engagements from May through the end of August.

That dwarfed the rest of the freshman class: NBC drama “This Is Us” took the No. 2 spot with 1.56 million engagements, followed by CBS’s reboot of “MacGyver” with 558,073, ABC’s family sitcom “Speechless” at 505,161, and Fox drama “Pitch” at 338,870.

Clearly, the built-in fanbase for “Prison Break” — even though it’s not set to premiere until the spring of 2017 — helped lift it above the rest of the pack. The event series, shot »
