After a two-year drought of no original summer programming, The CW will introduce two reality/competitions this summer: relationship-driven Hitched or Ditched from The Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss and docu-soap Blonde Charity Mafia. Hitched or Ditched, which launches on Tuesday, May 26 at 9 p.m. with the first of six episodes (and repeats one night later at 9 p.m.) will focus on couples in longterm relationships who have not taken the leap into marriage yet. Will they or won’t they say “I do”?
Blonde Charity Mafia, which kicks off on Tuesday, July 7 with back-to-back half-hours from 9-10 p.m., will follow the lives of the influential 20-something social conscious Alpha Girls in Washington, D.C.
Effective on July 14, Blonde Charity Mafia will air its original weekly installment at 9:30 p.m. out of the repeat telecast from one week earlier.
