Reckless: New CBS TV Show; Cancel or Keep for Season Two?

Reckless TV show on CBS: canceled or season 2?Legal and crime dramas are a big part of the CBS schedule during the year. This summer, the network started airing another one — Reckless. Has this new TV show been a ratings success? Will it be renewed for a second season or, will it be cancelled instead?

Reckless revolves around a beautiful litigator from the north and a charming southern attorney who must hide their intense mutual attraction as a police sex scandal erupts in Charleston, South Carolina. The TV show’s cast includes Cam Gigandet, Anna Wood, Shawn Hatosy, Georgina Haig, Adam Rodríguez, Michael Gladis, Kim Wayans, and Gregory Harrison.

The series debuted in late June to just a 0.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 3.99 million total viewers. That was a very poor start for a scripted series — even one that airs during the summer months when expectations are lower.

Reckless’ ratings have held fairly steady and have even seen some slight improvements at times. That’s positive but the series is still the network’s lowest-rated summer series — by far. With such low ratings, it’s hard to imagine that CBS will consider renewing Reckless for a second season.

For now, CBS has only scheduled 10 of the 13 episodes. Hopefully for the loyal fans, all of the episodes will air and the series will have a satisfying conclusion.

But, what do you think? Do you like the Reckless series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season?

10/9 update: CBS has cancelled Reckless after one season. Details here.

    It was such a good show. There are several shows that you kept on that should not be on they are really not good. One of those shows is Under the Dome. Please bring it back.

    YES!!!!! I don,t understand how CBS got such a low ratings but Reckless is one of the best show this summer by far! The couples, Ann Wood and Cam Gigandet are steaming hot! LOVE his accent. The music is perfect every time for the excact right moments. the suspension is highly intents. although the evident video could be cut shorter, not show too much or too long. The show is extraordinary! PLEASEEEEEEE…….. dont cut them off. RAting has to have been unfair some how due to summer vacations and netflex and other ways of viewing.
