ABSTRACT
The article informs that after a season in which most new non-scripted programs have under-performed, conventional wisdom might assume broadcasters would cut back production on reality shows for next year. The networks are already in development on more than a dozen new reality shows. Columbia Broadcasting System is working on "The Cut," a fashion design contest show hosted by Tommy Hilfiger, and The Next Great Rock Star, Mark Burnett's search to find a new lead singer for Aussie band INXS. At the winter TV critics convention in Los Angeles last week, CBS Chairman Les Moonves admitted his misstep in airing The Will, which was canceled after one broadcast.
