Oh Sit!, the network's late-summer ratings winner, has earned as high as a 0.5 rating among adults 18-49. It's also been able to retain its recent demo (0.4 adults rating) hold despite recent competition from The Voice and The X Factor. The intense version of musical chairs, which pits 12 competitors in an obstacle course version of the children's game, is created and executive produced by Phil Gurin, Richard Joel and Deena Dill. It's produced by The Gurin Company and 405 Productions in association with Warner Horizon Television.
Breaking Pointe, which debuted earlier in the summer, is docu-drama about a Salt Lake City ballet studio and the young men and women trying to make dance their career. It's produced buy Dancing With the Stars' Izzie Pick Ashcroft and Jane Tranter of BBC Worldwide Productions.
Summer debuts that have yet to be given a green light for future installments are The Catalina and The Next, the latter of which concludes its freshman season on Oct. 4.
