Tonight is the series premiere of Reckless on CBS at 9/8c. The show is set in Charleston, S.C., where a gorgeous Yankee litigator and a charming southern attorney must hide their intense mutual attraction as a police sex scandal threatens to tear the city apart. It stars Anna Wood, Cam Gigandet, Shawn Hatosy, Adam Rodriguez, Georgina Haig, Kim Wayans, Gregory Harrison, and Michael Gladis.
 
Tonight is also the series premiere of The Leftovers on HBO at 10/9c. From Damon Lindelof (Emmy(R) winner for Lost) and acclaimed novelist Tom Perrotta (Academy Award(R) nominee for Little Children), the show is based on Perrotta’s bestselling novel of the same name. The drama series takes an original look at The Rapture… because it’s not entirely clear The Rapture happened. Justin Theroux, Amy Brenneman, Christopher Eccleston, Liv Tyler, Charlie Carver, Max Carver, Carrie Coon, Ann Dowd, Michael Gaston, Emily Meade, Annie Q, Margaret Qualley, Amanda Warren and Chris Zylka star.
 
Finally, tonight is the series premiere of Vicious on PBS at 10:30/9:30c. Partners Freddie (Ian McKellen) and Stuart (Derek Jacobi), who have lived together in a small central London flat for nearly 50 years, are always at each other’s throats, making snide remarks aimed at the other’s age, appearance and flaws. However, underneath their vicious fighting, they share a deep love. Freddie and Stuart are often joined by feisty best friend Violet (Frances de la Tour, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) and Ash (Iwan Rheon, Game of Thrones), their young, upstairs neighbor.

Tonight is the series premiere of Biker Battleground Phoenix on History Channel at 10/9c. History is going inside the cutthroat world of custom bike building, giving viewers a never-before-seen look at how adrenaline, craftsmanship and rivalries determine who’s who among the country’s top custom bike builders. Following five of the most talented and ambitious bad boys of the custom bike business in Phoenix, Arizona, viewers will witness how the competitive rivalry between these shops are sometimes fueled by respect – and sometimes not -proving that skills and hard work doesn’t always pay off and sometimes scheming wins the prize. In the desert city of Phoenix, Arizona lives a subculture unknown to many – the custom bike building capital of the world. A place where shop owners compete day and night for customers who are willing to pay upwards of $150,000 for a fully personalized Bagger motorcycle. Choppers and Cruisers are out and Baggers are in. In this dog-eat-dog world, design ideas are money and top custom bike shops compete around the clock, for both business and bragging rights. The show follows five of the most determined and hungry shop owners, from the well-established “Godfather” to the young up-and-comers. When passion and egos collide in this world, the explosion is heard throughout the city.
