Brady sings for Fox game
EmptyFox has tapped "Whose Line Is It Anyway" star Wayne Brady to host its new karaoke-themed game show "Don't Forget the Lyrics!" and has set a two-night launch for the half-hour series July 11 and 12.
Meanwhile, CBS' survey-based show "Power of 10," hosted by another "Line" alum, Drew Carey, will premiere Aug. 7.
"Lyrics," from RDF USA and Brad Lachman Prods., features contestants singing alongside a studio band with lyrics projected onscreen. When the music stops and the words disappear, competitors are challenged to carry on. After each round, contestants will get a chance to take their money prize and leave. Those who successfully finish 10 songs will get the show's top prize of $1 million. The first two episodes of "Lyrics" will air July 11 at 9:30 p.m. and July 12 at 8:30 p.m.
Brady was the host of the Emmy-winning syndicated talk/variety series "The Wayne Brady Show." He can be seen starring in his live show, "Making It Up," at the Venetian in Las Vegas.
In "Power," contestants compete to accurately predict the results of nationwide surveys for a shot at $10 million grand prize that will be awarded to the person who correctly answers five questions.
"Power," from Embassy Row Prods. and Sony Pictures TV, will premiere Aug. 7 at 8 p.m., moving to its regular Wednesday 8 p.m. slot the following night.
