The CW hoped that the ratings were ever in their favor last night.
The premiere of Capture was on Tuesday, a show which is essentially an enormous game of tag, but that's billed as the Hunger Games incarnate, except that no one dies and uh, there are literally no mutations! Say wha?! (Cue: sad trombone music)
However, the host of the show, Luke Tipple, CAN shut down zones of the enormous 4,000 acre arena, just like the Hunger Games Game Maker, and the contestants DO wear polymer onesies, just like the Hunger Games, but is it the Hunger Games? Not really.
It's like saying "hey, let's make the Hunger Games, take out all the violence, and deathly booby traps, and poisonous berries, and add the CW instead."
Heck, CW, we'll volunteer…we'll volunteer as tribute!
