CBS, which is giving viewers a chance to vote on pilot shows being aired this summer on "CBS Summer Playhouse," got a thumbs up on last Friday night's presentation of "The Saint."
With Andrew Clarke starring as legendary British sleuth Simon Templar, "The Saint" received 40,218 yes to 3,715 no votes, the network said Monday.
Viewers can cast their votes via a special 900 telephone number. Each call costs 50 cents.
"CBS Summer Playhouse" is hosted by Tim Reid and Daphne Maxwell Reid and features comedy and drama programs that were developed for CBS but did not make the fall schedule. This Friday's presentation at 8 p.m. will be "Kung Fu The Next Generation," starring David Darlow and Brandon Lee.
