The CW renews summer puns Breaking Pointe and Oh Sit!

Still reeling with giddy laughter over its clever wordplay, The CW has issued second season renewals to both of its summer reality puns Oh Sit! and Breaking Pointe, ensuring that 2013 will be similarly filled with giggles. For those whose incapacity for whimsy has prevented them from checking out either, Breaking Pointe is a Hills-like unscripted look at the world of ballet—in which they use pointe technique—while Oh Sit! is an extreme musical chairs competition—in which contestants attempt to sit in unpredictable circumstances that might also cause them to use profanity—and as you can see, both puns are hugely successful in the rattings. "Rattings," of course, is a capricious play on the word "ratings," humorously referring to how each show evokes the feeling of rats gnawing on your cerebrum.
