TV Fox Announces New Game Shows "The Masked Singer", "Mental Samurai", "Spin the Wheel"

Fox is Adding Three Crazy-Sounding Game Shows this Season
by Liam Mathews
Aug 2, 2018



The Fox network, in the midst of huge change as its studio partner gets absorbed by Disney, is already at the point of "alright, let's try this and see what happens."

Fox Entertainment Group CEO Dana Walden announced three new game shows at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, and they all sound absolutely bonkers.





The first is "The Masked Singer", in which celebrities perform karaoke while wearing elaborate, face-and-body-hiding costumes.

The panel of celebrity judges ó Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke ó then has to guess who the singer is. Fox teases that "celebrity competitors have earned a total of 65 Grammy nominations, 16 Emmy Award nominations, 16 multi-platinum albums and 4 Super Bowl titles."

It's based on a hugely popular South Korean format and hosted by Nick Cannon. "The Masked Singer" will premiere in January.





The next is "Mental Samurai", hosted and produced by Rob Lowe. On this show, it sounds like competitors will basically run a mental obstacle course? It's a little hard to envision.

"Not only does the course test their acumen in categories of knowledge, memory, numbers and sequencing, but players will also have to contend with being transported around the set at high speeds in a specially designed capsule that is capable of rotating 360 degrees," Fox says.

Rob Lowe is doing it because he's been into mental challenge shows since he won "The $10,000 Pyramid" when he was 15, which is a fun fact.





And finally there's "Spin the Wheel", which is created by Justin Timberlake and "The Wall's" Andrew Glassman. It's basically "Wheel of Fortune" but with trivia questions instead of word puzzles plus huge sums of money.

There's the possibility of winning $20 million in a game. Dax Shepard will host.

"Mental Samurai" and "Spin the Wheel" don't have dates yet, but will premiere in the 2018-2019 season.

"Mental Samurai" Premiere Date
by Erik Pedersen
January 9, 2019



Fox has set a premiere date for the new reality competition series itís billing as ďthe first-ever obstacle course for the mind.Ē Hosted and produced by Rob Lowe, "Mental Samurai" will bow at 9 PM Tuesday, February 26.

Hereís how we play our game: Pushing every aspect of human intelligence and mental agility, the series sees contestants battle the boundaries of their minds to answer questions accurately with speed and precision. Not only does the course test their acumen in categories of knowledge, memory, puzzles and sequencing, but players also will have to contend with being physically transported around the set at high speeds in a specially designed capsule capable of rotating 360 degrees.

People from all walks of life will compete, and underdogs will triumph, in the game that anyone can play, and almost no one can win.

Oh how the mighty have fallen. What a bunch of drivel primetime has become. So glad there are other places to watch real acting, and good television shows before the SJW's and the PC crowd took over. What a mess.

Bee: Gladys Knight
Poodle: Margaret Cho
Rabbit: JC Chasez
Lion: Rumer Willis
Raven: Ricki Lake

Yeah I'm enjoying it mostly. Except for the fact I think Jenny McCarthy is really annoying (I really can't stand her!) and Ken Jeong is somewhat annoying. But not to the extent that Jenny McCarthy is, I just wish she'd shut up and stop talking so much! Most everything that comes out of her mouth is just stupid.

I guessed 2 that you have. Won't say for I think we all should wait and not ruin the fun of watching. Now that you may have told me, the thrill is lost. So sad.

I had a feeling that The Masked Singer would get renewed for a Season 2.
