CBS has made decisions on three of its summer original scripted series, picking up Under the Dome and Extant for next summer. There is no information on the number of episodes but word is that the shows — both from Amblin TV and CBS TV Studios — would likely be matching their previous 13-episode pickups. Legal sudser Reckless, which aired in the summer after being originally slated for midseason, will not be coming back.
The group says scenes in the June 29 show at 9/8 p.m. ET/CT “constitute a violation of the broadcast indecency law due to the patently offensive sexual content airing when children are likely to be in the audience. It is even more troubling that CBS chose to rate the episode as appropriate for 14-year-old children.”
