Tuesday Night Book Club, a docu-reality series that followed the lives of a group of upper middle class women in Scottsdale, Arizona, premiered Tuesday, June 13 at 10PM ET/PT. Representing CBS's first foray into the "docu-soap" sub-genre that MTV's Laguna Beach is credited with revitalizing, Book Club was supposed to run for eight episodes.
Airing Tuesdays at 10PM ET/PT, Tuesday Night Book Club's June 13 premiere drew only 5.07 million viewers and finished a distant third in its time period. The premiere finished 47th in the week's primetime viewership rankings. This week's second episode did even worse, averaging only an estimated 4.13 million viewers.
A 48 Hours Mystery repeat will fill Book Club's hour next week, after which a Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular special will air in the show's July 4 time period.
