TV WORTH WATCHING:
BROOKLYN DA 
CBS, 10 p.m. ET; 5/28/2013 
SERIES PREMIERE: This new six-part series takes the basic approach of ABC’s medical 24/7 documentary series and applies it to local politics. Politics, by definition, is much more controversial, so this series arrives on CBS already surrounded by a legal challenge brought by a rival candidate for the office of Brooklyn district attorney, who sought to block the telecast of this series. But the way things work, that should just add to the viewership, not subtract from it.
