Stephen J. Cannell is entering the gameshow arena with “Personals,” a latenight relationship program that has received a five-episode pilot order from CBS – apparently for the 12:30 a.m. slot following the network’s new latenight crimetime strip.

Rick Rosner, who directed the syndicated version of “Hollywood Squares,” will be exec producer of the gameshow and Michael Burger has been signed to host. Rosner joined Cannell to develop new genres of programming for the independent producer.
