Songsmith John Mayer — also known as the guy who’s dating Jennifer Aniston — is going to shoot a pilot for a new TV variety series.
CBS exec Nina Tassler told the Television Critics Association gathering in Los Angeles today that the show will either spawn a bunch of specials or a weekly series, depending on how it turns out.
Mayer is no stranger to the format, having hosted the short-lived — one episode — VH1 show John Mayer Has a TV Show in 2004.
CBS is taking a chance here, since last month’s NBC variety show starring Rosie O’Donnell tanked.
