reckless premiere ratings cbs TV ratings: 'Rising Star' falls in week 2, 'Reckless' opens quietly SundayFast National ratings for Sunday, June 29, 2014

“Rising Star” fell a bit in its second week on ABC, losing three tenths of a point in adults 18-49 on Sunday. (The network notes, however, that it was up among teens over its premiere.)

Other originals didn’t fare so well either. “Big Brother” led the night in adults 18-49 but was off half a point from the two previous episodes. The series premiere of “Reckless” lost more than half of its “Big Brother” lead-in for CBS, and “Unforgettable” was on par with its low spring return. A special “Last Comic Standing” on NBC also came in somewhat low.

CBS drew 6.1 million viewers and a 4.0 rating/7 share in households for the night. ABC (4.5 million, 2.6/5) came in second, beating out NBC’s 3.1 million viewers and 1.9/3. FOX (2 million, 1.2/2) trailed.

ABC and CBS tied for the lead among adults 18-49, each scoring a 1.1 rating. NBC and FOX also tied at 0.9.
