CN Real is a former Cartoon Network programing block featuring live-action reality shows usually on Wednesdays and Saturdays that premiered on June 17, 2009, promoted by rock musician Andrew W.K.. It featured live-action shows such as The Othersiders, Bobb'e Says, Survive This, DUDE, What Would Happen, BrainRush, and Destroy Build Destroy.

Network executives and critics expressed concern about alienating Cartoon Network's core audience with this block, which heavily promoted live-action programming over cartoons. The concerns were well-founded, as none of the shows ended up building any ratings momentum, not even breaking the top ten programs aired on the network. The Othersiders and Survive This premiered on Wednesdays, while BrainRush and W.K.'s own Destroy Build Destroy premiered on Saturdays. On July 10, 2009 the network announced that CN Real would be consolidated into one Wednesday night block from July 15th onwards. Due to an overwhelmingly poor reception many shows in the block were prematurely cancelled.

The block ended in early 2010. Dude What Would Happen? and Destroy Bulid Destroy were the last two CN Real shows to air until 2011, but these shows have since been cancelled. Although new live-action shows were produced, the CN Real block, deemed a critical failure, was ultimately dropped.
