FOX hits the right note with the all-new rendition of beloved musical game show “Name That Tune,” premiering Wednesday, Jan. 6 (9 p.m. ET/PT), 2021, on FOX. Created by Harry Salter, the one-hour game show tests contestants’ music knowledge, as they battle it out in an assortment of challenging musical games for cash and prizes. Jane Krakowski (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” “30 Rock”) will host, and Randy Jackson (“American Idol”) will serve as band leader.

“We’re thrilled to bring the iconic musical game show ‘Name That Tune’ back to television with this updated revival. It’s been beloved the world over for decades and we can’t wait for a new generation of families to get to play along with the classic series at home,” said Rob Wade, president, alternative entertainment and specials, FOX Entertainment. “With the captivating Jane Krakowski as host, alongside band leader Randy Jackson, the ‘Big Dawg’ himself, this surely will be a harmonious pairing.”

Each one-hour episode of “Name That Tune” is comprised of two stand-alone half-hour contests, each pitting two players against each other as they race against the clock to test their knowledge of songs, performed by the live band. Each contest features a rotating variety of games from the original format, before the iconic “Bid-a-Note” round. The player with the most money at the end of “Bid-a-Note” wins the game and takes his or her bank into the “Golden Medley” bonus round, for a chance to win additional cash and potentially the $100,000 grand prize.
