The CW Announces Summer Programs: Reality TV to Dominate Schedule

The CWThe CW’s scripted shows will all be ending in April and May (view finale dates), so reality TV will be dominating the network’s summer schedule. In particular, four new reality shows will be on the schedule throughout the summer months.

“One of my first goals here at The CW was to increase the number of hours of original programming, both throughout the season and during the summer. With these four new reality series, we’re launching our biggest summer schedule yet which will boost our circulation during the summer months and provide us with a promotional platform for our fall launch,” said Mark Pedowitz, President, The CW.

The game show Oh Sit! was previously announced. The network describes the ten episode reality series as “a fun, high-stakes, high-octane musical chairs competition, in which 20 thrill-seeking daredevils race head to head through five physically demanding, obstacle course-style eliminations as they each compete to claim a chair, to the sounds of a live band. At the end of the hour, only one contestant will be left sitting triumphant to seize the cash prize”.

Joining Oh Sit! are three more reality shows:

(1) The Star Next Door will “go on a nationwide search for undiscovered artists on the verge of stardom. In this new take on the music competition genre, superstar mentors, including pop legend Gloria Estefan and country star John Rich, will travel to where the talent is, immersing themselves in the lives and towns of these local performers and preparing them for the chance to represent their home city on stage, live, in front of America”.

(2) Breaking Pointe is all about the drama behind the scenes at a ballet company. It “goes behind the stage curtain for an intense, unfiltered look at one of the most competitive ballet companies in the country, Ballet West, in Salt Lake City, Utah. Beneath the beauty and glamour of the dance and costumes is a gritty dog-eat-dog world of extreme athleticism, focus, dedication, passion, pressure and, of course, the hunt for the unattainable…perfection.”

(3) The Catalina heads to Miami’s South Beach to showcase the staff at the Catalina Hotel. “The fun-loving group, who form their own dysfunctional family unit, run a glamorous destination hotel while partying even harder than their guests.”

Premiere dates will be announced later.
