CBS, which is looking to develop nontraditional, often risky concepts for next season, has ordered pilots about an exorcist and 1970s swinging couples.

Demons, from Joan of Arcadia creator Barbara Hall and movie producer Joe Roth, centers on an ex-Jesuit priest/psychologist who performs exorcisms.

Swingtown, from writer/executive producer Mike Kelley (Fox's The O.C.), explores the concept of open marriages and couple-swapping practiced by suburban couples in '70s.

    Swingers in the 70s- sounds like CBS is trying to get its viewers to remember their own distant past---- doubt this one will last. As for the exorcism show- how many times can you really do this in a season?

    Could go either way, depending on how it's presented and written.
