Premiere Date and Time:
Thursday, September 6, 9pm
Time Slot Competition: Grey's Anatomy, CSI:, The Office
Host: Wayne Brady
Wayne Brady hosts Don't Forget the Lyrics
, this party-style prime-time game show from FOX. The premise is simple: a contestant sings karaoke to popular songs and, at some point during the song, the words on the screen will go away. If the contestant can remember the correct lyrics, they make money. If they can't, they lose. FOX has always been a pioneer in the prime-time game show genre and has paired Don't Forget the Lyrics
on Thursdays with the network's other hit game show, Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?
If you love game shows, FOX is where it's at on Thursdays.
Both this show and its NBC counterpart, The Singing Bee
, premiered within days of each other over the summer, and though the competition indicated that at least one, if not both, was doomed to fail, they both did well enough to warrant extensions, and were each belatedly added to the fall schedules.
