TV Ratings: 'Reckless' Fizzles
CBS had good news and bad news on Sunday night. After the third installment of Big Brother premiered on par with last summer's Sunday debut, averaging a 1.8 rating among adults 18-49, newcomer drama Reckless shed more than half of its lead-in. The series pulled just a 0.7 rating in the key demo.
A Sunday return for Unforgettable (0.9 adults) saw it fall four-tenths of a point from its last Friday outing, though it still managed to rebound from Reckless.
After an even Wipeout (1.0 adults), ABC's Rising Star shed three-tenths of a point from last Sunday's opener, averaging a 1.2 rating among adults 18-49. ABC and CBS shared a demo win for the night, each averaging a 1.1 rating.
Over on NBC, a special Last Comic Standing pulled a 1.1 adults 18-49 rating.
