Wickedly Perfect debuts tonight; My Big Fat Obnoxious Boss is being replaced.

Wickedly Perfect debuts tonight; My Big Fat Obnoxious Boss is being replaced.
CBS fills Survivor‘s 8 p.m. ET time slot with a new reality series starting tonight. Wickedly Perfect “pits 12 people with a creative knack for the finer things in life in a no-holds-barred competition to crown the country’s new authority on at-home living.” Because, you know, our old authority on at-home living is in prison.

Hosted by Joan Lunden (a career low”), the series will award its winner with a book deal, a development deal, and half a dozen appearances on The Early Show. What a prize!

My Big Fat Obnoxious Boss disappeared from the schedule last year, but is still on FOX’s mid-January schedule, airing Sundays at 9 p.m. ET. However, that time slot will be filled instead with repeats of Family Guy, Zap2it.com reports. At least it’s being replaced by Family Guy: Who can complain about that? While the site says that Family Guy is “replacing the low-rated ‘Boss’ for at least the remainder of January,” it suggests that it probably won’t return, reporting that FOX “says those who are interested will eventually be able to see the outcome of the show.” Yeah, right: Just like Forever Eden and Playing it Straight.
