The only other broadcast TV action was over on CBS, where Big Brother opened the night with 5.8 mil and a 1.8, down from last Thursday’s episode (6.6 mil/2.3) but on par with its first Sunday outing of Summer 2013.

The premiere of CBS’ (allegedly) shteamy Southern sudser Reckless then dropped a chunk of that audience, bowing to just 4.1 mil/0.7. Unforgettable‘s Season 3 opener followed with 6.2 mil/0.9, on par with its Season 2B premiere and up a tenth from its May finale.

    ‘The premiere of the (allegedly) shteamy Southern sudser Reckless’

    Shteamy – very funny if the misspell was intentional. Too bad because this show has potential given all the ‘new’ faces and it is about courtroom drama however the overly sexual spin is not only distracting but also distasteful. Tick tock…..tick tock….canceled.

    Reckless was nothing but T & A and sexual innuendos. With all the great Sunday programming now and more coming in July I don’t see that audience growing.

  3. Meg says:

    Reckless wasn’t that great. I do admit the little twist at the end, I never would have guessed, but otherwise I didn’t feel any chemistry between the two leads and some of the dialogue was cheesy.Luckily I have Ray Donovan and Masters of Sex to keep me occupied on Sunday night tv soon.

  4. Chris says:

    If CBS cancels “Reckless”, then they can move the show to the CW network, since CBS owns the show and also co-owns the CW!

    I saw RISING STAR for the first time last night. Don’t know if they had trouble finding contestants or they didn’t have the chops to support them once they were there, but that was the weakest TV singing competition ever.

  6. Ally says:

    Reckless was okay but you also have to keep in mind that there were bigger shows on at the time and some people, myself included, didn’t want to try to keep up by flipping channels during the commercials.
