CBS's new reality-competition show Hunted lands in its permanent timeslot Wednesday night after debuting to solid ratings following the NFL's AFC Championship game on Sunday, January 22.

The premise of the show is simple: nine teams of two are hunted by "highly skilled" investigators, called Hunters, using state-of-the-art tracking techniques. Each team that successfully evades capture will win $250,000.
