PILOT REVIEW: Reckless

RECKLESS












Starring: Anna Wood, Cam Gigandet, Shawn Hatosy, Georgina Haig, Kim Wayans, Michael Gladis, with Gregory Harrison, and Adam Rodriguez

Created by Dana Stevens
Written by Dana Stevens, Directed by Catherine Hardwicke

Reckless is a new soapy drama that feels like an ABC show. Set in Charleston, South Carolina, it centers on an instant attraction between northern litigator Jamie Sawyer (Anna Wood) and southern attorney Roy Rayder (Cam Gigdandet). They are also adversaries in a police sex scandal involving disgraced officer Lee Anne Marcus (Georgina Haig) and dirty cop Terry McCandless (Shawn Hatosy).

THE GOOD: I don't have much good to say about this one. It's nice to see a soapy drama like this not set in New York or California, but that doesn't mean it's done well. It is a step above ABC's Betrayal however because I actually do believe the chemistry between the two leads.

THE BAD: Even though it was not as bad as Betrayal, Reckelss brought nothing new to this overexposed genre. The show tried to raise the stakes with dramatic reveals and the rich players involved but nothing felt overly important or urgent. The performances were fine but pedestrian. The show that started this revival of these types of shows, Revenge, was bolstered by such a dynamic performance from Madeleine Stowe. There's no equivalent in this show. The characters are blandly drawn and fighting over something that I don't feel invested in as a viewer.

BOTTOM LINE: This isn't the worst of these types of shows (once again, look at Betrayal) but there's nothing here that's going to make me come back for a second week. It's easy to see why CBS chose to stick this bland drama in the summer.

THE RUNDOWN: Monday, June 30 & Tuesday, July 1

MONDAY
Monday night has the season premiere of summer 2013's biggest hit, Under the Dome. The show was a sensation last year but the supposedly "limited" series left a bad taste in viewers' mouths towards the second half of the summer so who knows if that many will come back nearly a year later. However, it has gotten a ton of promotion and Stephen King wrote the season premiere so there should be some significant curiosity.

There was lots of new programming on Thursday night. Night two of Big Brother on CBS was on par with the first night, which is a good sign that audiences are embracing the newest season. On ABC, the season premiere of NY Med was a decent performer in total viewers but it skewed old. Earlier in the night, Black Box was down three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo while Rookie Blue was down eight tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo from last week's season premiere. On NBC, both episodes of Undateable were down a tenth from last week while Last Comic Standing fell a troubling eight tenths in viewers and four tenths in the demo. The early promise of this season of Last Comic is fading away. Finally on FOX, Hell's Kitchen was down a tenth in viewers and the demo while Gang Related was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo.

PILOT REVIEW: Taxi Brooklyn

TAXI BROOKLYN












Starring: Chyler Leigh, Jacky Ido, James Colby, Jose Zuniga, Jennifer Esposito, Bill Heck, Ally Walker, Raul Casso

Based on the film "Taxi" written by Luc Besson
Developed for television by Gary Scott Thompson, Stephen Tolkin, & Franck Ollivier
Written by Gary Scott Thompson, Directed by Olivier Megaton

Taxi Brooklyn is a new comedy-drama series based on the 1998 French film "Taxi" (which was remade into the 2004 Jimmy Fallon and Queen Latifah movie of the same name). In this incarnation, Caitlin "Cat" Sullivan (Chyler Leigh) is a cop who doesn't always play by the rules. She enlists the help of a taxi driver (and French fugitive) Leo Romba (Jacky Ido) to help her solve the death of her father.

THE GOOD: This show got a little better as the pilot went on. There were some funny interactions between Leigh and Ido and the chemistry between them is pretty good. The Brooklyn setting keeps the pace up and I really do enjoy Chyler Leigh in the lead role. While her part is a little bit cliched (rogue cop with revenge on her agenda), she plays it convincingly.

THE BAD: I don't really feel like we got to know any of the other characters that well besides Cat and Leo. The group of other cops and detectives all sort of ran together while Cat's mom (Ally Walker) was not too memorable. The first scene had a frenetic camera and it was a turn-off to me because it was dizzy and unnecessary even though I know it was their way of trying to capture the intensity of the scene. And as I said before, the show was full of cop drama cliches, which is not too surprising.

BOTTOM LINE: While I didn't mind Taxi Brooklyn, I don't think I'll keep watching it. There was nothing in it that really hooked me and made me think it would be a worthwhile show to watch this summer. It was fine but ordinary and it will probably be quickly forgotten after the summer of 2014.

SUNDAY
Sunday night has two premieres on CBS. At 9pm is the series premiere of Reckless, a new soapy drama that sounds a little bit like ABC's failed Betrayal. It was picked up at the 2013 upfronts but is only premiering now. It is paired with season three of Unforgettable even though the remainder of season two just finished in May. Elsewhere, ABC has week two of Rising Star and I don't think the ratings will be rising.

Wednesday night had two premieres. CBS had the season premiere of annual summer franchise Big Brother. It was down just slightly from last year's premiere with a very solid 2.3 demo. It looks like Big Brother will continue to be a solid summer player. Meanwhile, new scripted drama Taxi Brooklyn didn't make much of an impact on NBC though it could have been worse because the total viewer count was decent enough. Elsewhere, FOX's So You Think You Can Dance was down nine tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo while Motive was down nine tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo on ABC.

On Sunday night, ABC trotted out its new singing competition series but it looks a lot more like it'll be the next Duets than the next The Voice. Rising Star didn't make much of an impact on the ratings especially considering what ABC was probably hoping for. It wasn't a complete disaster but it doesn't look like it's going to make much of a difference. Earlier in the night, the season premiere of Wipeout returned to very low numbers - this is why its relegated to a summer series now.

On Thursday night, ABC had the two hour premiere of perennial summer drama Rookie Blue. First up, Black Box was up three tenths in viewers and down a tenth in the demo at a special time. Then season 5 of Rookie Blue premiered to numbers that were below last year's premiere but consistent with what it was getting for most of the summer. On NBC, two more episodes of Undateable were down in viewers and even in the demo from last week. Undateable has arguably exceeded expectations but I don't see it getting a second season. Last Comic Standing was down a tenth in viewers and up two tenths in the demo. Finally on FOX, Hell's Kitchen was up two tenths in the demo for its best performance since April 3 while Gang Related was even in the demo.

Sunday night has the premiere of ABC's new interactive singing competition Rising Star. ABC is hoping this is the newest reality franchise hit but I'm pretty skeptical that things will work out well. I think it'll have a disappointing premiere especially since NBC decided to air a special new episode of America's Got talent against it.

CANCELLATION ALERT: Riot, I Wanna Marry "Harry"

In a move that surprise no one, FOX cancelled unscripted summer show Riot and I Wanna Marry "Harry" after three dismal weeks together. The shows got absolutely no interest and pulled unacceptable numbers, even by summer standards on FOX. The shows will be replaced by reruns of Family Guy, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, New Girl, and The Mindy Project starting this coming Tuesday.

On Tuesday night, NBC's summer lineup had a great second week. America's Got Talent was down just seven tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo from last week's strong start while week two of new drama The Night Shift held up well as it was down eight tenths in viewers and just a tenth in the demo as well. This is even more impressive for Night Shift as it seems viewers are not rejecting this show. On ABC, Extreme Weight Loss was up a tenth in viewers and down a tenth in the demo from last week's season premiere. The season finale of Celebrity Wife Swap was up three tenths in viewers and a surprising three tenths in the demo for a season high. I'm not sure what made this spike so much but it may well have earned another season with that, though it may belong only in summer. FOX had another disastrous week with both Riot and I Wanna Marry "Harry" getting just a 0.4 demo. Yet, it appears like FOX is not going to make any changes here.

The season premiere of Mistresses at 10pm was at the same demo it premiered to a year ago and on par with numbers it got through most of the summer so this was a solid return for ABC's summer soap. On NBC, American Ninja Warrior was up six tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo for its best performance since July 23, 2012. Finally on FOX, Masterchef was up a million viewers and three tenths in the demo from its season premiere last week. 24: Live Another Day went up for the first time as it was up half a million viewers and three tenths in the demo.

WEEKEND REWIND: CBS 2006-07 Season

Sorry for the delay in this post, I didn't realize I had saved it as a draft and not posted it!

CBS 2006-07
Heading into the 2006-07 season, CBS was coming off from a big year with budding hits in Criminal Minds and How I Met Your Mother and 13 shows in the Top 30. The 2006-07 class was not nearly as strong. They got a few renewals but the biggest new show ended up being Rules of Engagement, which was never more than a modest success.


Check out my ABC Weekend Rewind from 2006-07!

MONDAYS
(Sep 18-Oct 2)
8:00 The Class
8:30 How I Met Your Mother
9:00 Two and a Half Men
9:30 The New Adventures of Old Christine
10:00 CSI: Miami

8:00 How I Met Your Mother
8:30 The Class
9:00 Two and a Half Men
9:30 The New Adventures of Old Christine
10:00 CSI: Miami

(Feb 5-Mar 5)
8:00 How I Met Your Mother
8:30 The Class
9:00 Two and a Half Men
9:30 Rules of Engagement
10:00 CSI: Miami

(Mar 12-26)
8:00 How I Met Your Mother (starting Mar 19)
8:30 The New Adventures of Old Christine
9:00 Two and a Half Men
9:30 Rules of Engagement
10:00 CSI: Miami

(Apr 9-May 14)
8:00 How I Met Your Mother
8:30 The New Adventures of Old Christine (through May 7)
9:00 Two and a Half Men (through May 7)
9:30 The King of Queens
10:00 CSI: Miami
"Rules of Engagement"
Monday night's lineup changed a lot but it was all changes with the comedies as CSI: Miami stayed at 10pm all season. CBS tried to jump start the night with a new sitcom in the lead-off slot. The Class  was a critically acclaimed comedy starring Jason Ritter, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Lizzy Caplan, and Andrea Anders among others. The show centered on eight classmates from 3rd grade reuniting 20 years later. The show didn't work as a lead-off and seemed to bring down promising second year show How I Met Your Mother so CBS flipped the two shows after just three weeks and that combination lasted until March. The 9pm hour had Two and a Half Men as the anchor, of course, and The New Adventures of Old Christine, coming off a strong first season. However, Old Christine wasn't holding on to enough of Men's audience so CBS eventually moved it to 8:30pm after The Class ended its 19 episode run. Their next effort was more successful as Rules of Engagement launched to strong numbers the day after the Super Bowl. This show never broke out but was a utility CBS player for years. When it ended its short first season, it was replaced by the final batch of episodes of The King of Queens, which was ending a nine year run back on the night where it became a big hit. When it ended, it was the last surviving live action sitcom that had premiered in the 1990s.

TUESDAYS
(Sep 19-Nov 7)
8:00 NCIS
9:00 The Unit
10:00 Smith (through Oct 3)

(Nov 14-May 8)
8:00 NCIS
9:00 The Unit
10:00 3 Lbs (through Nov 28)
"Smith"
Tuesday nights stayed the same from 8-10pm all year with NCIS and The Unit. Both shows were solid, but NCIS still wasn't the top CBS drama it is today. However, the 10pm hour was a disaster. It was reminiscent of ABC in this same slot this past season. They started with Smith, a crime drama about a gang of thieves starring Ray Liotta, Jonny Lee Miller, and Simon Baker. It lasted just three episodes and CBS aired reruns and specials for about a month. Then they brought in the new medical drama 3 Lbs starring Stanley Tucci. That show lasted just three episodes as well. CBS did not stock up on extra dramas because they weren't used to quick failures so they had nothing left to air in the hour the rest of the season so from December until May, it was a mix of repeats, specials, and extra 48 Hours episodes.

WEDNESDAYS
(Sep 20-Nov 29)
8:00 Jericho
9:00 Criminal Minds
10:00 CSI: NY

(Dec 6-Jan 3)
8:00 The King of Queens
8:30 Various Programming
9:00 Criminal Minds
10:00 CSI: NY

(Jan 10-Feb 7)
8:00 Armed & Famous
9:00 Criminal Minds
10:00 CSI: NY


(Feb 14-May 16)
8:00 Jericho (through May 9)
9:00 Criminal Minds
10:00 CSI: NY
"Jericho"
Like Tuesdays, Wednesday nights only had changes in one of the three hours and it was CBS' regular problem hour in the mid 2000s - Wednesdays at 8pm. 9-11pm was set with Criminal Minds and CSI: NY with Minds even getting the coveted post-Super Bowl slot. The 8pm hour was mostly Jericho, but it had a split season with 11 episodes in the fall and 11 in the spring. The post-apocalyptic drama developed a strong cult following but didn't get huge ratings. CBS cancelled it at the end of the season only to be bombarded by letters and e-mails urging them to change their minds. Unlike what usually happens, CBS actually listened and they ended up renewing it for a midseason 2008 return (though it didn't last beyond that). During its hiatus, CBS aired a few episodes of returning sitcom The King of Queens before it moved back to Mondays for its final run. They also aired the short-lived reality show Armed & Famous which featured D-level celebrities getting police training.

THURSDAYS
8:00 Survivor (Sep 21-Dec 14 & Feb 8-May 10)
9:00 CSI
10:00 Shark
"Shark"
Thursday night had Survivor and CSI holding down the fort at 8pm and 9pm and still going strong, even though Survivor was not quite the monster it once was. Without a Trace had moved to Sundays so the coveted post-CSI slot was open and it was filled by Shark, a Los Angeles-set legal drama starring James Woods and Jeri Ryan. The show lasted the full season in the slot but didn't break out the way Without a Trace did. It ended up being moved to Trace's Sunday slot after its first season as Trace came back to Thursdays. Shark was quickly forgotten but in this rough season for newbies, it was the top new drama on CBS.

FRIDAYS
8:00 Ghost Whisperer
9:00 Close to Home
10:00 Numb3rs
Friday nights were finally steady with a lineup that looks like CBS today, just with different shows: modestly rated, "second tier" CBS sitcoms. Back in these days, that meant Ghost Whisperer, Close to Home, and Numb3rs. Only Close to Home was cancelled after this season as the bookends were strong enough to come back.

SATURDAYS
8:00 Various Programming
10:00 48 Hours
Once again, Saturdays had encores and 48 Hours, just like today.

SUNDAYS
7:00 60 Minutes
8:00 The Amazing Race (Sep 24-Dec 3 & Feb 18-May 6)
9:00 Cold Case
10:00 Without a Trace
After decades, CBS said goodbye to the Sunday Night Movie. CBS was the last network to hold onto a Sunday night movie but those days were over. 60 Minutes stayed at 7pm while 8pm was given to The Amazing Race and its two cycles, a slot it has held ever since (though it is on the move to Fridays this fall). Two dramas occupied the former movie slot - Cold Case and Without a Trace. Cold Case slid an hour while Without a Trace moved over from Thursdays. For their first experiment with Sunday dramas here, it went well (both shows were in the Top 20), though they moved Trace back to rescue Thursdays after one year.

On Friday night, NBC got some OK mileage out of the premiere of Crossbones. First up though, Dateline NBC was up a million viewers and a tenth in the demo. Then the premiere of Crossbones was above anything Hannibal got in this slot since March 28, though it skewed older. If it can get numbers like Dracula and Hannibal during the summer months, that's a solid performer for NBC. On ABC, Primetime: What Would You Do? was down seven tenths in viewers and even in the demo while 20/20 was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo.

NBC's solid summer continued on Thursday night. First up at 8pm, Hollywood Game Night was up four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. The surprise of the week came at 9pm where the series premiere of Undateable did surprisingly adequate. While 3.8 million viewers and a 1.3 demo is nothing to write home about, it did better than most NBC Thursday sitcoms in the regular season and it held steady across both episodes. It could easily have been a show that got below a 1 in the demo for its premiere so it was definitely an overachiever. Last Comic Standing had a solid second week as it was down seven tenths in viewers and just a tenth in the demo from last week's two hour premiere. On ABC, Black Box was dead even with last week. Finally on FOX, Hell's Kitchen was up two tenths in viewers and even in the demo while Gang Related was actually up three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo from last week's premiere.
