The network’s summer line-up is strategically planned to start in mid-July and continue rolling out into the fall launch.

Premiere night will feature back-to-back original episodes of WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY? (8:00-9:00p.m. ET) and PERFECT SCORE (9:00-10:00p.m. ET).

Hosted by comedian Aisha Tyler, WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY? 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. Based on the wildly successful U.K. format, which also spawned a previous incarnation in the US that ran for eight seasons on ABC, WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY? is executive produced by Dan Patterson, Mark Leveson, Jimmy Mulville, Ryan Stiles and Wayne Brady. Co-created by Dan Patterson and Mark Leveson, WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY? is from Angst Productions and Hat Trick Productions.
PERFECT SCORE, hosted by fan-favorite actress Arielle Kebbel (“John Tucker Must Die,” “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! Created and executive produced by Scott St. John (“America’s Got Talent,” “Deal or No Deal,”), Thom Beers and Jennifer Mullin. PERFECT SCORE is from FremantleMedia North America (“American Idol,” “The X Factor,” “America’s Got Talent”).
On Monday, July 29 (9:00-10:00p.m. ET), the acclaimed reality series BREAKING POINTE returns for a second season. Thiscritically-acclaimed docuseries rips back the curtain on the inner workings of the elite Salt Lake City ballet company, Ballet West. BREAKING POINTE obliterates the notion that ballet is a dated art form and shatters pre-conceived stereotypes about the men and women who give their lives to the world of ballet. Underneath the tights and tutus lie warriors who battle in a gritty world of extreme athleticism, focus and dedication while hunting for the unattainable… perfection. In this close-knit community, the dancers’ lives intertwine both inside and outside of the studio, often putting intense pressure on friendships and romance. BREAKING POINTE is produced by Adjacent Productions, with executive producers Leola Westbrook (“Real Housewives of Atlanta,” “America’s Next Top Model,” “Taking the Stage”), Izzie Pick Ashcroft (“Dancing with the Stars,” “Strictly Come Dancing,” “Big Brother”) and Jane Tranter (“Dancing with the Stars,” “Top Gear,” “Little Dorrit”).

With $250,000 on the line, it’s a winner-take-all battle in which the teams must hunt each other down to survive.

What do you think? Will you be tuning in to watch any of these CW shows this summer?
Now CW has gone and done it, really the hunt a show that sounds distinctly like the hunger games trilogy which was written to shown people the damage that commercialisation and reality TV can do to our race.well may the odds be ever in your favour.
Loox like yet more garbage on the CW….another lame dating/relationship show, and a rip-off of “Survivor”.
However, “Breaking Pointe” is informative, while “Whose Line is it Anyway” had a successful run on ABC and could score again on the CW if it’s not changed too much.
I always love Game Shows Perfect Score is definitely a summer shows Hunt is definitely a summer shows Whose Line is It Anyway American Next Top Model And Arrow are the worst show ever on the cw network There Should’ve been adjustments to the fall schedule where Carrie Daires and Nkita could be on Mondays Hart Of Dixie/Vampire Diares or either one of them could easily fit with 90210 Tuesdays or Thursdays Supernatural/Cult/ could be on Wendesdays nights Fridays could end up being Beauty And the beast and Gossip Girls Renewal for a season 7 Supernatural Monday couod be Carrie… Read more »
Gossip Girl already ended back in December.
90210 was cancelled/is ending May 13th.
Cult is very likely getting cancelled.
After the success The CW has had by pairing Arrow with Supernatural, I doubt they would break that up. The Vampire Diaries will probably never move from Thursday, but I have no problem with Hart of Dixie being placed after it since every show in that slot gets cancelled. However, The Originals will likely take over that spot in the fall.
