CBS is betting big on the reality show “Love Island” this summer, putting it on five nights a week. However, the series is off to a poor start in the ratings, debuting last night to less than convincing figures for the network.
“Love Island” scored a 0.6 rating in the key 18-49 demographic and was watched by only 2.68 million total viewers. The premiere was blown out in the 8 p.m. time slot by “America’s Got Talent” on NBC, which posted a 1.4 and just under 10 million viewers, and the MLB all-star game on Fox, which was posted a 1.7 and was watched by a touch over 7 million viewers.
Love - Island
It remains to be seen how “Love Island” will fair...
