FOX has announced its upcoming premiere dates for its upcoming fall slate, which has been impacted by the writer’s strike since there is no new drama series currently on the schedule, but there are plenty of new and returning unscripted and animated series.
The FOX fall lineup includes all-new episodes of “Celebrity Name That Tune”, which is hosted by Jane Krakowski and band leader Randy Jackson. The show test the musical knowledge of athletes, musicians, actors, TV personalities, comedians and Olympians all playing for their favorite charities with a chance to win over $150,000.
The hit competition show “I Can See Your Voice” returns for Season Three with all-new theme nights, hosted and executive produced by Ken Jeong. Cheryl Hines and Adrienne Bailon-Houghton also return with a rotating panel of celebrity detectives to help one contestant tell the difference between good and bad singers… without ever hearing them sing a note. With $100,000 on the line, the contestant will attempt to weed out the bad “Secret Voices” from the good. In the end, the singer whom the contestant picks will reveal their true voice in a duet performance with a musical superstar, resulting in an amazing musical collaboration or a totally hilarious train wreck.
“Krapopolis”, is the all-new animated comedy from Emmy Award-winner, creator and executive producer Dan Harmon (Rick and Morty, Community). Set in mythical ancient Greece, Krapopolis tells the story of a dysfunctional family of humans, gods and monsters trying to run one of the world’s first cities, while also trying their best to not kill each other in the process.
“Gordon Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares” returns for an all-new season of restaurant makeovers. Each episode follows Ramsay as he revamps a restaurant in crisis, exposing the stressful realities of running a successful food business. Now more than ever, restaurant owners are faced with seemingly insurmountable challenges, from health code violations and staffing issues to menu errors and kitchen conditions found only in nightmares. Ramsay is their restaurant 9-1-1 call and the last chance for their businesses to survive.
“Special Forces: World’s Toughest Tes”t returns for a second season with a new group of celebrity recruits ready to test their bodies and minds as they are pushed to the limit through some of the harshest, most grueling challenges from the playbook of the actual Special Forces selection process. This season, the group of celebrities which includes medaled Olympians, beloved actors, iconic television personalities and a seven-time NBA champion, will arrive in an all-new treacherous winter terrain to face extreme training drills, including an emergency escape from a submerged helicopter, a cliff crawl across a snowcapped mountain peak and a daring backwards dive into icy waters in the dead of night. There are no votes and no eliminations – just survival.
“The Masked Singer” returns for its 10th season this Fall and the show is celebrating with the biggest and boldest costumes in the show’s history – with the buzziest and brightest celebrities underneath! The Emmy Award-nominated singing competition features host Nick Cannon, alongside fan favorite panelists Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg, Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong and Robin Thicke. The season will feature the return of special theme nights and unforgettable show-stopping performances that will keep you guessing.
All-new game show “Snake Oil”, which is hosted and produced by Emmy and Golden Globe Award-nominated comedian David Spade (Saturday Night Live, Just Shoot Me). In the show’s all-new original format, contestants are pitched unique products by convincing entrepreneurs – some of whom are showcasing real business ventures, while the others are “Snake Oil Salesmen,” whose products are fake. With the help of guest celebrity advisors, contestants must determine which products are real and which are a sham, for a chance to win life-changing money. In each round of Snake Oil, contestants choose a pair of entrepreneurs and learn about their extremely unique (and often bizarre) products through visuals, a custom-made infomercial exclusively produced for Snake Oil, and by quizzing the business representative themselves. With the help of their celebrity advisors, the contestants must then decide who is selling an authentic product and who is hawking a sham. Will they make the right choice or be duped by snake oil?!
Gordon Ramsay returns in an all-new season of “Hell’s Kitchen”, which has been given a new theme of “The American Dream,” which will focus on uniquely American stories to test contestants and push them to their limits.
“LEGO Masters” returns this fall with an epic fourth season featuring a new batch of talented teams and unique themed-out episodes throughout the series. Hosted by actor and executive producer Will Arnett, LEGO Masters brings imagination, design and creativity to life when teams of LEGO enthusiasts go head-to-head, with infinite possibilities and an unlimited supply of LEGO bricks. Once again, teams of two will compete against each other in even more ambitious brick-building challenges such as a Cirque du Soleil challenge and an explosive volcano build in the hopes of taking home a $100,000 cash prize, the ultimate LEGO trophy and the grand title of LEGO Masters. For the first time in LEGO Masters history, the winning build will be transformed into a set and displayed at a LEGO flagship store.
WWE’s Friday Night Smackdown will also continue to air each Friday throughout the season.
