EXCLUSIVE: CBS has ordered a pilot for a daytime cooking game show starring Emeril Lagasse. The untitled project, produced from FremantleMedia, will be filmed in front of a live audience and will feature members of the studio audience competing against each other for a prize in preparing a dish under the supervision of the famous TV chef. The pilot, based on an original concept, is eyed as a replacement for CBS’ departing daytime soap As The World Turns. Also vying for World’s 2 PM time slot in the fall are two other pilots recently greenlighted by the network, a View-type daytime panel talk show executive produced by Tom Forman and Sara Gilbert and starring Gilbert and Julie Chen, and a reboot of the classic game show Pyramid. “CBS is trying to recalibrate its daytime,” a source says. “The potential for there to be more than one time slot is very good.”
