The CW has taken the wraps off its schedule of summer premieres, including a lineup of new programs and a new season of “Breaking Pointe,” EW.com’s Inside TV reports.
Here’s the schedule:
Tuesday, July 16
8-8:30 p.m.: Whose Line Is It Anyway? (series premiere)
9-9:30 p.m.: Perfect Score (series premiere)
Monday, July 29
9-10 p.m.: Breaking Pointe (season premiere)
Wednesday, July 31
9-10 p.m.: The Hunt (series premiere)
The following descriptions were also provided for the new shows:
“Whose Line is it Anyway?” will be hosted by Aisha Tyler and will also feature the return of cast members Ryan Stiles, Wayne Brady and Colin Mochrie, who along with a special guest each episode must put their comedic skills to the test through a series of spontaneous improv games, prompted only by random ideas supplied by the studio audience.
“Perfect Score,” hosted by Arielle Kebbel (The Vampire Diaries), puts a unique twist on dating game shows by not only giving players a chance to win a date, but also the opportunity to win cold hard cash — IF they can successfully identify their perfect match. In each half-hour episode, two friends compete to see who can pick their ideal mate from a group of 12 prospective singles, after both the players and the contestants have taken compatibility tests. These tests are used to assign cash values to each possible match, and the player who selects the most compatible single — with the highest cash value — wins the cash prize and the date.
“The Hunt” is a new wilderness competition featuring 12 teams of 2 who will enter “The Arena,” a fenced-in enclosure in the middle of the wild, where they must live for one month and compete against each other for scarce resources. With $250,000 on the line, it’s a winner-take-all battle in which the teams must hunt each other down to survive.
