Dave Navarro, Brooke Burke will host CBS’ Rock Star: INXS, which will air three times a week.

Having spent time recently hanging out in front of MTV cameras for his show Til Death Do Us Part: Carmen + Dave, Dave Navarro will now spend time in front of CBS cameras, as he hosts the forthcoming Rock Star: INXS. He’ll be joined by Brooke Burke, the host of Wild On. A CBS press release also reveals that the Mark Burnett show will add “relationship-style unscripted drama” to “performance competition and a weekly contestant elimination.” The show will air three times a week, besting Idol‘s regular twice-weekly schedule. The drama will air on Mondays, with the competition following the next two nights: “Each week will feature taped reality segments focusing on the performers’ relationships and activities (Monday episodes), along with a performance competition (Tuesday) and weekly results (Wednesday).”
