CBS picks up six for 2008-09 slate

CBS has settled on its pilot pickups, handing orders Monday to two comedies and four dramas for its 2008-09 sked.

ABC put the finishing touches on the sked it will unveil today with a nod to its long-gestating remake of Brit TV drama "Life on Mars." CW, which also presents today, made it official on drama "Surviving the Filthy Rich," previously titled "How to Teach Filthy Rich Girls."

In wrapping up its skeding decision, Fox by Monday had decided to pass on the Bernie Mac-Bruce Helford comedy that had earned a series commitment for Warner Bros. TV last fall. Network is said to be eager to develop something new with Bernie Mac, who remains in a deal at WB.
