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.

Need to have a second season. Great series. Flawless! Renew it in the fall/winter when people watch more prime time TV. Airing it in the summer was stupid when people have many more choices of things to do. Dumb move TV execs – you blew it and wasted a great show on no one.

CBS really needs to bring back Reckless! It was hot! Great chemistry between Roy & Jamie. Why would CBS cancel such a good show. I’d get rid of: Big Brother, Amazing Race, 2 Broke Girls, The McCarthys, Survivor, Under the Dome, Unforgettable, The Millers, Extant before getting canceling Reckless. This is the second bad move, the first was cancelling Intelligence.

Loved it! Such great characters overall. The chemistry between the two leads is palpable and reels you in, yet in a totally charming and tasteful way. Add in the beautiful, historic city of Charleston as a backdrop and a touch of the drama old, southern society is known for, and you’ve got a unique twist on a law show. I found the whole thing very appealing.
I agree this would be a great fit for Netflix and their customers….that’s actually where I stumbled across it and it and got hooked on it. They definitely should pick-up season 2! Please?!
