Encouraged by the reception the Smothers Brothers got for their hourlong special two weeks ago, CBS on Tuesday ordered six more programs from the comedy duo for airing in weekly installments this spring.
The Smothers Brothers series will debut March 28 in the time period that was to be occupied by "Magnum, P.I."--8 p.m. Wednesdays. "Magnum" by then will have completed its original episodes for the season, except for a special two-hour show that will mark the end of the detective series. That will air in May.
