I loved the rebooted Hawaii Five-0 (and I'm old enough to have watched some of the original series as well) Lenkov and his team just hit gold with that cast and it worked. I watched and really enjoyed the original RDA MacGyver and I gave the reboot a shot based on how well Five-0 worked, but the spark was gone. Maybe because the original was not an ensemble cast show? Certainly, the fact that Justin Hires' character is not only annoying but unnecessary was part of it. I stopped watching by season 3. The new version of Magnum PI has some of the same issues. The production turned a solo act into an ensemble and the whole thing with Higgins now his partner and the forced sexual tension is just  ... meh. With that said, both MacGyver and Magnum will probably be renewed. SEAL Team and SWAT have much lower ratings and would go first if the network wanted to lose another veteran show. 

As for The Equalizer, so far it is a ratings winner for the network, garnering numbers equal to the original NCIS, so it's not going anywhere unless its numbers just fall off a cliff in the next couple of weeks. 

Hawaii Five-0 rebootis probably my all-time favorite police procedural tv show. The cast was true gold and the story had just a perfect balance of personal drama. 

MacGyver is fun, but the longer I watch it the most I get fed up with the inner struggles of the main character. Too much drama. 

Both Seal Team and S.W.A.T. delved too deep into social issues for me, it just doesn't give me the fun and relaxing time I want from the show. And from what I have seen around people have similar feelings. If I had to bet I would say S.W.A.T. will be the first to go. But these networks surprised me before, you can never be sure.

I'm curious to see if The Equalizer and MacGyver will survive past their current seasons. Fans of originals don't like the reboots, yet they manage to keep better ratings than similar standalone series.

The Equalizer

Really enjoyed the pilot. Haven't seen the original so watching it as a standalone series, so your opinion might differ if you comparing to the original.
