If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/25/17

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Kyle’s Choice

Tonight, FOX kicks off the new series Beat Shazam, a modern version of the classic Name That Tune game show. Actor/musician Jamie Foxx (Ray) hosts the series, which finds four teams of two trying to identify songs as quickly as humanly possible. Each round, the teams are presented with a choice between two music categories, and the faster they can name the songs, the more points they win. The team with the lowest score at the end of each round is eliminated. The last team remaining moves on to the final round, where they compete against the world’s best song-identifying app, Shazam – where “as fast as humanly possible” may not be quick enough! The series is executive-produced by Mark Burnett (Survivor, The Voice) and Jeff Apploff (Don’t Forget the Lyrics!).

This series looks like it will be a lot of fun, though I’m hoping there is a lot of 80s and 90s music, because I haven’t listened to the radio in years (too many podcasts and audiobooks to listen to!). I look forward to meeting tonight’s contestants and seeing which pair takes home the cash prize.

Don’t miss the premiere tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Amazing Race and Red Nose Day.
