CBS had a pretty lackluster premiere week last week, receiving tepid reviews for most of its new fall series and breaking a ten-year ratings winning streak, but one bright spot was debut of Evil. Produced by Michelle and Robert King (the power duo behind The Good Wife franchise), thw show is earning praise from critics and strong social media buzz (unusual for a CBS procedural). Is it the eye network's next big hit? Stay tuned...
