Reality TV on broadcast TV is seemingly live and well -- for
the moment. ABC's "Splash," a reality competition show where celebrities make big dives into swimming pools, earned a Nielsen preliminary 2.6 rating/8
share at 8 p.m. on Tuesday night. That was the biggest-rated reality show debut in a year and a half -- since Fox launched "The X Factor" in September 2011. It was also ABC's best reality TV debut since October 2011.
