‘Wicked,’ ‘Will’ wend their way to Eye web

2 new reality skeins hit CBS

Something “Wicked” is coming to CBS’s Thursday night lineup, while “The Will” has found its way onto the Eye’s Saturday sked.

CBS will roll out two new reality shows next month, starting with “Wickedly Perfect,” the LMNO-produced hour designed to find the next Martha Stewart-like “stylemaker.” Skein will get a high-profile launch, bowing Jan. 6 in the 8 p.m. Thursday timeslot normally occupied by “Survivor.”

CBS usually rests “Survivor” in January, bringing the show back in time for February sweeps. “Perfect” is slated to run for up to 10 weeks, however, meaning either “Perfect” will switch slots midway through its run, or “Survivor” will be delayed.

Joan Lunden will host “Perfect,” which features a dozen wannabe Marthas competing in events like baking, gardening and sewing. LMNO’s Eric Schotz and Bill Paolantonio are exec producers.

Two days after “Perfect,” CBS will take the wraps off “The Will,” the latest from “Bachleor”/ “The Real Gilligan’s Island” exec producer Mike Fleiss. Skein, from Fleiss’ Telepictures-based Next Entertainment, will air Saturdays at 8 p.m., starting Jan. 8. That’s the slot originally intended for the new season of “The Amazing Race.”

“The Will” follows a wealthy man’s attempt to give away a chunk of his estate to 10 potential heirs.
