When the Detroit Lions won the World Series in 1984, the “Magnum P.I.” producers had the brilliant plan of setting one of their episodes in Detroit. However, they instead chose to feature cameos of Tigers players Lou Whitaker and Alan Trammell in the episode “A Sense of Debt.”
The players were seen hanging out in a bar in Detroit in a particular scene.
As an absolute commercial and critical success, "Magnum P.I." and its lead actors received numerous nominations and awards including Tom Selleck’s Emmy for Best Actor.
Selleck’s Emmy for Best Performance, John Hillerman’s Emmy for Best Supporting Actor, and Hillerman’s Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor! Absolute stars!
It may come as a surprise but Tom Selleck was actually dreaming to be an architect back in the day. The actor eventually was able to reach those dreams somehow as he played the role of Peter Mitchell on "Three Men And A Baby."
Peter was, obviously, an architect, and we’re pretty sure Tom enjoyed every bit of it!
"Magnum P.I." truly enjoyed its spot at the top, getting dubbed as the number one detective television series of all time by The Sleuth TV Network and even becoming a constant fixture in the top twenty U.S. television programs.
Though the show was a huge hit in both ratings and end-of-year rankings, its popularity eventually waned by its sixth season.
Though Tom Selleck has not been able to commit as much time to his career, he was still able to star in the CBS hit show "Blue Bloods." He played the role of Frank Reagan, a Police Commissioner, and received widespread acclaim for his performance.
His role was so well-received that even real NYPD officers would salute Selleck!
