TV Ratings: 'Reckless' Fizzles
Despite a strong lead-in from the night's top performer, "Big Brother," the new CBS drama falters out of the gate.
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.
