at . Comments

It looks like viewers were not ready for Love Island. 

The U.S. version of the hit international series launched on CBS with just 2.7 million viewers and a 0.6 rating among adults 18-49.

This is down considerably from what Big Brother pulled in the same slot last week (4.5 million/1.1).

Given that the series will be airing five nights for four weeks, this is a terrible start. 

The diminished lead-in support dragged Blood and Treasure down to 2.7 million total viewers and a 0.3 rating.

Over on NBC, America's Got Talent secured 9.6 million total viewers and a 1.4 rating. 

The premiere of Bring the Funny was also strong with 6.2 million total viewers and a 1.2 rating.
