Boy, when the folks at The CW set their minds on something.
Late last year we brought you the news that The CW had approved production on 'The Hunger Games'-esque summer reality competition series 'The Hunt,' while months before the network had developed a scripted pilot similarly derivative of the blockbuster film franchise. Now, even after 'The Selection' failed to meet CW standards the first time around, the network has given the green light to another pilot episode. Find out all about 'The Selection' inside!

This past weekend's 'SNL' with Martin Short hosting and music legend Paul McCartney, certainly proved at least memorable, between the solemn cold opening paying tribute to the victims of the recent Sandy Hook tragedy, and Samuel L.
