‘Wickedly Perfect’ moving to Saturday

From wire reports

CBS isn’t waiting until the premiere of the next “Survivor” to get “Wickedly Perfect” off its Thursday night schedule.

The Joan Lunden-hosted contest among aspiring lifestyle gurus is being booted to Saturdays at 8 p.m. starting tonight. “CSI” reruns will fill the 8 p.m. Thursday time slot until the “Survivor: Palau” premiere Feb. 17.

“Wickedly Perfect” has drawn 8.7 million viewers per week in its Thursday airings, less than half of what “Survivor: Vanuatu” averaged earlier in the season.

‘Yes, Dear’ returns

The comedy series “Yes, Dear” is returning to CBS as the low-rated “Center of the Universe” gets bumped out of network orbit.

Starting Feb. 16, “Yes, Dear” will take over the 9:30 p.m. Wednesday time slot that had belonged to the freshman John Goodman-Jean Smart sitcom.

“Yes, Dear,” in which Anthony Clark, Mike O’Malley, Jean Louisa Kelly and Liza Snyder play young marrieds with conflicting views about parenthood, aired for four seasons on CBS.

Extra episodes of “King of Queens” will fill in on Wednesday night until “Yes, Dear” returns.

‘Savages’ scuttled

“Complete Savages” has been pulled from ABC’s Friday night schedule, with repeats of “8 Simple Rules” airing in the 8:30 p.m. time slot through at least the end of the February sweeps period.

Despite having Mel Gibson as an executive producer, occasional director and one-time guest star, “Complete Savages,” starring Keith Carradine as a single father raising a brood of sons, has failed to stir up any viewer passion.

The show is expected to return in March.
