'The Hunt' On The CW: 'Hunger Games'-Esque Reality Show Ordered Along With 'Perfect Score'

Two new reality shows are coming to the CW. The network has ordered "The Hunt" and "Perfect Score," Mark Pedowitz, The CW president announced Wednesday.

The CW described "The Hunt" as "an intense wilderness competition" in which twelve teams of two set out in the great outdoors without any food, water or shelter and must "capture each other" to win a cash prize.

"Perfect Score" is dating show that challenges its participants to pick a potential partner they are well-suited for. Contestants can find love -- and win cash -- by determining which of twelve possible matches a compatibility test has determined is the best fit for them.

Premiere dates have yet to be announced for either series.

While The CW has found a niche in scripted programming aimed at young female viewers, the network has yet to find much success in its forays into reality TV. "The Catalina," which followed the exploits of the young employees of a swanky Miami resort, registered mediocre ratings and has yet to be renewed for a second season. The short-lived "H8R," which gave celebrities like Snooki and Scott Disick the chance to confront their Internet adversaries in real life, was canceled mid-way through its first season.
