FOX has announced summer premiere dates for returning series "Beat Shazam," "Love Connection," "MasterChef" and "So You Think You Can Dance," as well as new series "Gordon Ramsay's 24 Hours To Hell And Back."
This summer, Tuesdays are all about music and matchmaking, with the return of "Beat Shazam" and "Love Connection" on May 29. Interactive game show "Beat Shazam," hosted by Grammy-, Golden Globe- and Academy Award-winning actor and musician Jamie Foxx, kicks off the night at 8 p.m. ET/PT. The series pits teams of two against the clock and each other as they attempt to identify the biggest hit songs of all time. In the end, the team with the most money banked will outlast the competition and go against Shazam, the popular song identification app, for the chance to win up to $1 million.
Additionally, actress, model and writer Corinne Foxx, daughter of Jamie Foxx, joins "Beat Shazam" as the new deejay. Celebrity guests to appear this season include Demi Lovato, Shaquille O'Neal, Smokey Robinson and Michael Bolton, among others.
All-new episodes of "Love Connection" air at 9 p.m. ET/PT on FOX. Hosted by Emmy Award-winner Andy Cohen, the one-hour series amps up the original hit dating show for today's audiences. Each one-hour episode features single men and/or women in search of love, as Cohen brings his personal brand of audacious fun to the series.
On Wednesday, May 30, season nine of "MasterChef" debuts with a special two-hour premiere (8 p.m. ET/PT). The following week, on June 6 (8 p.m.), another two-hour episode airs. On "MasterChef," award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay, acclaimed chef Aarón Sánchez and renowned restaurateur Joe Bastianich will put the latest group of contestants through a series of challenging elimination rounds, in order to turn one home cook into a culinary master.
Following "MasterChef's" time period premiere on Wednesday, June 13 (8 p.m. ET/PT), "Gordon Ramsay's 24 Hours To Hell And Back" debuts (9 p.m. ET/PT). The brand-new series will feature Ramsay driving to struggling restaurants across the country in his state-of-the-art mobile kitchen and command center, "Hell On Wheels."
In today's social media-driven world, everyone is an amateur food critic, and restaurants often find themselves one bad review away from shutting their doors. So, for the first time ever, Ramsay will try to bring each of these failing restaurants back from the brink of disaster - all in just 24 hours. First, he'll send in a team to record secret surveillance. Then, he'll go in undercover to see the problems first-hand. As the clock ticks down, Ramsay and his team will transform these restaurants with spectacular renovations, fresh new menus and hope for the future. It all builds to the end of the 24 hours, when grand re-openings of these restaurants will be held for the public.
Hosted by Cat Deeley and featuring Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy and Vanessa Hudgens as resident judges, "So You Think You Can Dance" enters its 15th season on Monday, June 4 (8 p.m. ET/PT). Highly skilled dancers between the ages of 18 and 30 will showcase their talents in various dance styles, including contemporary, tap, hip-hop, ballroom, animation and breaking. Those who are selected to move on to the "SYTYCD" studio will work with world-renowned choreographers and compete live each week for America's votes in a variety of styles. Contestants will be eliminated weekly until a winner is named on the season finale.
Additionally, the 2018 Miss USA competition is set to air live on Monday, May 21 (8-10 p.m. ET live/PT tape-delayed). Hosted by Vanessa and Nick Lachey, the two-hour special programming event will conclude with Miss USA 2017 Kára McCullough crowning her successor.
Additional finale dates, summer premiere dates and schedule information to be announced.
