CBS Readying The View Rival?

Somehow, we imagine this pilot will be picked up: Julie Chen, the wife of CBS President Les Moonves, is preparing to shoot a pilot of a daytime talk show to take on ABC’s The View. Former Roseanne star and lesbian mother Sara Gilbert has signed up, while the New York Post names Lisa Rinna and Real Housewife Bethenny Frankel as possible co-hosts. A CBS source tells the Post, "It's a daytime panel show to take on The View, targeted at women with children and hosted by celebrities, journalists and regular moms. A pilot will be shot in early May."
