It's a team sport on the gridiron—and on the mean streets of Honolulu!

Magnum P.I. will serve up an all-new episode on a special date—Sunday, Jan. 20—shortly after the AFC Championship Game airs on CBS and CBS All Access. With the game kicking off at 6:30 PM ET / 3:30 PM PT, that places Magnum at 10 PM ET / 7 PM PT.

(Time is approximate after post-game coverage.)

In the episode "Winner Takes All," Thomas Magnum (Jay Hernandez) has an emotional connection to a case when he and every other private investigator and bounty hunter on Oahu are tasked to track down a man accused of murder.

Magnum will be working with—and against—some big characters, including comedian Ken Jeong, who returns as private investigator Luther Gillis, and former professional football player Eddie George, who guest stars as the man informing the bounty hunters and private eyes to the skip on the run.

NASCAR driver Ryan Blaney also makes an appearance as a bounty hunter eager to find the skip.

Then, the very next night on Monday, Jan. 21, there's yet another all-new episode of Magnum P.I.  in its regular time at 9/8c on CBS and CBS All Access.

Monday night's episode, "Day Of The Viper," follows what happens when a wounded former MI6 friend of Higgins (Perdita Weeks) shows up to tell her that the assassin who killed her true love has surfaced on Oahu.

Also, while Magnum helps Higgins, he asks Rick (Zachary Knighton) to take over a case for him—a task that Rick relishes until the case goes sideways.

There's no such thing as too much Magnum, so let's run through some logistics.

Exactly what time is the Magnum P.I. episode after the AFC Championship Game?
Football—like some of the bad guys Magnum chases—can be a little unpredictable. We know the AFC Championship Game starts on Sunday, Jan. 20 at 6:30 PM ET / 3:30 PM PT.

Depending on how long the game (overtime is always a possibility) and post-game coverage runs, the scheduled time for Magnum at 10 PM ET / 7 PM PT could be affected. The plan is to run the episode at the same time across the continental U.S., so it won't be delayed in other time zones like you're used to on most nights.

Our advice? Plan for a full evening: Watch the game and just stay tuned!
