What is the secret talent of CBS’s Secret Talents of the Stars? How about a disappearing act, followed by The Schedule Shuffle?
After only one airing, CBS has decided to yank the new show from its lineup. The debut and final performance on Tuesday garnered only 4.6 million viewers, causing CBS to take action quick, even though it had a roster full of celebs lined up to show off their talents.
In the Tuesday episode, George Takei sang “On the Road Again,” while Olympic figure skater Sasha Cohen did a contortionist act. Country singer Clint Black tried his hand at stand-up comedy, and singer Mya performed a tap dance.
In line to perform in future episodes were Danny Bonaduce, Marla Maples, and Jo Dee Messina, among others.
CBS has shuffled its Tuesday schedule to make up for the loss of the show. For the next two weeks, 48 Hours Mystery will fill the time slot. After that, Shark will be seen on CBS at 10:00 PM on Tuesdays.

Secret Talents Of The Stars is set to premiere on Tuesday, April 8 at 10 PM ET on CBS. On the series, celebrities will compete to show who has the best unknown talent. The celebrities will get feedback from a panel of judges, but a viewer vote will be the actual decider of who moves on in the competition.
Reality TV fans should be excited to know that John O’Hurley from the first season of Dancing With The Stars will be the host of the show. John O’Hurley originally finished second on Dancing With The Stars to Kelly Monaco. However, John got a second chance and beat Kelly in a dance off competition that aired later.
The judges for Secret Talents Of The Stars have also been announced. Entertainer Debbie Reynolds, singer Brian McKnight, and television and film producer Gavin Polone will be critiquing the weekly performances.
Some of the stars who will be participating include Jo Dee Messina, Joshua Morrow, Bridget Marquardt, Roy Jones, Jr., Malcolm-Jamal Warner, Marla Maples, Ric Flair, Joe Frazier, Danny Bonaduce, Sheila E., Cindy Margolis, and Ben Stein.
On the premiere episode, country singer Clint Black will try his hand as a stand-up comedian, Olympic ice skater Sasha Cohen will attempt to become a contortionist, singer/actress Mya will tap-dance, and actor George Takei will belt out a country song.

Now this ought to be good…
First up is “Secret Talents of the Stars” — a talent program showcasing celebs who have a hidden talent. Could be singing, could be juggling, could be pretty darn entertaining to watch as the celebs battle, tournament-style, and show off their mad talent-show skillz.
Getting our furry friends in on the action…
Anytime you have a non-human starring in any show, things can go pretty wrong, pretty fast. Make it a reality show and you’ve got “America’s Top Dog,” a show which will have dog owners and their dogs living together and competing to see who has the best-trained dog.
Hey, whenever Ashton Kutcher’s involved, I’m in…
“Game Show in My Head” is the third of the new shows we’ll see on CBS (produced by Ashton Kutcher, Jason Goldberg, and Karey Burke). In this hidden camera show, participants will perform strange and embarrassing stunts in public in an attempt to win big bucks. Sounds like Jackass for the network TV crowd.
CBS has yet to announce when the new shows will air, but speculation is that we’ll see them sometime later this season or this summer.
