CBS is getting rid of an excess of INXS

(Posted August 4, 2005 by Leah Yoakum)

LOS ANGELES ( CBS is getting rid of an excess of INXS.

The network is shipping the Monday episode of "Rock Star: INXS" -- one of three weekly installments that have been airing on CBS -- to Viacom sibling VH1. Starting this week (Aug. 7), the cable network will air the show, a "Real World"-like half-hour that follows the contestants in their Hollywood house, at 8 p.m. ET Sundays.

CBS will continue to air the Tuesday performance shows, which have been drawing the best ratings of the three weekly episodes, and the Wednesday results shows.

"Rock Star" aims to find a new singer for INXS, which has been without a full-time frontman since Michael Hutchence's death in 1997. Produced by "Survivor" and "Apprentice" guru Mark Burnett, the show has delivered only modest ratings in its three-plus weeks on the air.
