"The Numbers": 8 seasons; 162 syndicated episodes (148 one-hour episodes, 7 two-hour episodes); ~ 122 hours of footage; 14 awards (2 Emmys, 2 Golden Globes, 1 Edgar, 6 People's Choice), 30 additional nominations (13 Emmys, 11 Golden Globes); Avg. season Nielsen ranking (17); Highest season Nielsen ranking (3) - Season 3; Number of episodes produced by Tom Selleck (8); Number of times Magnum has been shot (13) - 10 times in the show, 3 times in Vietnam; Number of bad guys Magnum has killed (~50); Number of Robin Masters novels named in the show (13); Number of locks picked by Magnum (~50).
The season seven finale "Limbo" was originally intended to be the series finale (with Magnum seemingly walking off to heaven), but overwhelming fan support, and the backing of Tom Selleck, ended up bringing the show back for one more season (and 12 more episodes).
Magnum and T.C. can often be seen wearing a VM02 Da Nang baseball cap in the show.
The gold and black "Team Ring" that Magnum, T.C., Rick and Michelle wear is a Vietnam War memento that symbolizes the tight bond of wartime camaraderie that they all shared together.
The ring was worn by all members of the "Vietnam Team", a covert, highly classified, multi-service MACV-SOG unit, comprised of Magnum (U.S. Navy SEAL), T.C. (U.S. Marine Huey Pilot), Rick (U.S. Marine Door Gunner) and Dan Cook (U.S. Navy SEAL) from the VMO-2 Da Nang unit, and Phillipe Trusseau and Pepe, two French Paratroopers.

Magnum wore several different baseball caps in the series - the ubiquitous Detroit Tigers (Home) and VMO-2 Da Nang caps, the Al's Automotive and Muffler King cap (with the word "Tigers" in large letters in the middle), the SEAL camouflage cap (with the SEAL insignia sewn into it), the "Get Wet! cap (with the words "Downing Hawaii" in small letters), and several different varieties of plain-colored caps (grey, off-white). In addition, Magnum wore a Detroit Tigers (Away) cap, one time. The "Al's Automotive and Muffler King" cap was actually a holdover from the 1979 Tom Selleck/James Whitemore Jr. pilot movie The Chinese Typewriter.
Magnum wore two different types of watches in the show. For the first three seasons he wore a Chronosport Sea Quartz 30. For Seasons 4-8, he wore a Rolex Oyster Perpetual GMT Master (16750 with the "pepsi" bezel). The Rolex first appeared in Season Four's "Home From the Sea" (4.1). It originally belonged to Magnum's father. Magnum inherited the watch when he died in the Korean War in 1951.
In "Forty" (7.17) we see Magnum celebrating his 40th birthday which would put his birth year at 1947! And in the series finale "Resolutions" (8.12), Magnum has a surprise birthday party thrown for him during his trip to Annapolis, a trip where he is seen wearing a heavy leather jacket, scarf and gloves!
Thomas Magnum comes in at #43 on Bravo TV's The 100 Greatest TV Characters of all-time list.
* In Season Two's " Da Boom", Lois talks about how much food has been wasted in the house, and we suddenly see Peter mock feeding a can of beans to Magnum on the television set ("open up Tom Selleck").
* In Season Three's " Stuck Together, Torn Apart", there is a scene showing Magnum repeatedly referring to Higgins as "Tattoo". When Higgins tries timidly to correct him, Magnum steps out of the Ferrari, slaps him to the ground, and asks him to say his name.
* Also in Season Seven, in " Three Kings", we see Higgins and Magnum in the study at the estate. Higgins says to Magnum, "I found a fingerprint smudge at the crime scene. Do you have poo on your hands? Magnum looks at his hand and says, "A little.
NCIS (2003-Present) has made references to Magnum P.I. on at least four different occasions (Agent Tony DiNozzo is a fan of Magnum P.I. in the show): (1) Tony DiNozzo goes through a closet and comes across the iconic red "jungle bird" Hawaiian shirt and becomes excited ("Magnum shirt!"), (2) a little boy has a Ferrari bed ("Like Magnum..."), (3) a Magnum P.I. lunchbox is shown, and (4) Tony DiNozzo mentions watching a Magnum P.I. episode ("the one where Magnum is stranded alone on the ocean...") when interrogated.
