'Beat Shazam' Renewed for Season 3 on Fox
Fox wants people to keep trying to Beat Shazam.
The network has picked up a third season of the music-focused game show. Jamie Foxx will return as host and executive producer, and his daughter, Corinne, will once again serve as DJ.
"I am beyond excited that Beat Shazam is getting picked up for a third season,” said Foxx. “Huge thank yous to our creator, Jeff Apploff, and to Mark Burnett and MGM, as well as the team at Fox for believing in us and giving us the opportunity to help change more people's lives through our shared love of music."
Added Rob Wade, head of alternative entertainment at Fox, "Jamie Foxx is a one-of-a-kind entertainer who continues to bring his signature high energy and love of music to this show. It really is great fun for the whole family — including Jamie and his daughter, Corinne, our resident deejay. Together with the brilliant Mark Burnett and Jeff Apploff, they have inspired contestants, audience members and viewers at home to play along, and we can't wait to see the Beat Shazam band reunite for season three."
Beat Shazam is averaging a 0.7 rating among adults 18-49 and 2.26 million viewers the night it airs, off from 0.9 and 2.83 million in 2017. Multiplatform viewing pushes the show up to 3 million weekly viewers.
Foxx, Apploff, Burnett, Barry Poznick, Rich Riley and Lauren Zalaznick are executive producers of the Apploff Entertainment/MGM Television series.
Beat Shazam joins Gordon Ramsay's 24 Hours to Hell & Back in securing a renewal from Fox's summer slate.
