This summer the CW is going to get in on the reality scene with a slew of new unscripted shows. While it’s Wipeout-style Oh Sit and the Gloria Estefan-led singing competition The Star Next Door have yet to receive premiere dates, the docudramas Breaking Pointe and The Catalina have.

The Catalina premieres Tuesday, May 29 at 8pm and centers on the lives of the sexy young staff of a Miami hotel. Based on this teaser promo, there will be plenty of making out, drinking, partying, ass-slapping and puking. It’s sort of like when Jersey Shore went to Miami, only these people aren’t carpetbaggers.

Breaking Pointe, premiering Thursday, May 31 at 8pm, seems to be more serious. The show follows the lives of performers at Ballet West in Salt Lake City. It seems like an interesting and earnest look inside one of the most grueling professions, although I doubt we’ll get anything as racy as the famous sex scene in Black Swan.

Which new CW reality show are you most excited about?
