What will CBS air instead of the new Magnum PI episode 12 tonight. According to the TV guide listings, CBS is airing a repeat episode of Magnum PI. It’s the 13th episode of season 1 labeled,”Day of the Viper.”

CBS’ official description for it reads like this, “Magnum and Higgins are shocked when one of her former MI6 teammates shows up with a fresh gunshot wound and news that “the Viper,” the assassin who killed Higgins’ true love, has surfaced on Oahu.

In the new episode 12, Junior from the Hawaii Five-0 squad is going to get kidnapped for leverage in an effort to recover a stolen list of undercover CIA agents.

As we mentioned earlier, this Magnum PI episode 12 is a continuation of Hawaii Five-0’s episode 12, which will air right before Magnum PI.

The official CBS description for it reads like this, “When a list of undercover CIA agents is stolen, Steve and Five-0 enlist the help of Magnum (Jay Hernandez), Higgins (Perdita Weeks), Rick (Zachary Knighton) and TC (Stephen Hill) to get it back and protect national security. Also, Higgins gives Tani some personal advice.”
