Fox has cooked up a summertime slate that features three shows targeting foodies and wannabe chefs, with a heaping side dish of musical content.
The network also confirmed some springtime finales, listed down below.
Fox’s summer schedule kicks off Monday, May 22 with the (long-awaited) Season 2 opening of Joel McHale’s Crime Scene Kitchen. The season premieres of Beat Shazam and Don’t Forget the Lyrics arrive the next day, followed by a double helping of Gordon Ramsay via MasterChef Season 13 and the series debut of Gordon Ramsay’s Food Stars.
Monday, May 22
8 pm Crime Scene Kitchen Season 2 premiere (two hours)
In this culinary guessing game, bakers are tasked with decoding what type of dessert was made, when all that’s left are a few elusive clues. They must then recreate the recipe for chef Curtis Stone and cake artist Yolanda Gampp. New this season, the bakers are divided into two groups – self-taught and classically trained.
Tuesday, May 23
8 pm Beat Shazam Season 6 premiere
Executive-produced by Jamie Foxx, who is joined by his daughter Corinne Foxx as co-host and DJ, this game show pits teams of two against the clock and each other, as they attempt to identify hit songs.
9 pm Don’t Forget the Lyrics Season 2
Niecy Nash hosts this game show in which contestants choose songs from different genres, decades and artists, then take center stage to sing alongside the in-studio band as the lyrics are projected on-screen. But when the music stops and the words vanish, they must belt out the missing lyrics.

In this “United Tastes of America” season, Gordon Ramsay, chef Aarón Sánchez and restaurateur Joe Bastianich judge the top home cooks from four parts of America (West, Northeast, Midwest and South).

In this new competition series, food and drink industry entrepreneurs are put through challenges designed to showcase their business skills, test their drive, and prove they have what it takes to earn Ramsay’s personal investment of $250,000.

I was hoping that Corinne Fox wasn’t coming back, she’s awful. I was also hoping NN wasn’t either, she’s not good in that role. Sorry, Niecy fans.
Completely agree. I also hope that we can play along on the Shazam app again. Last season was really boring without it
Crime scene kitchen would be so much better if they didn’t limit the show to just desserts
Any word on when I Can See Your Voice is coming back?
All known dates are listed abovewards. –Mgmt.
Have we gotten a confirmed episode count for both 911 shows? TFC just says unknown.
18 each. –Mgmt
So excited for Crime Scene Kitchen–such a fun show!
Really wish networks would do some summer dramas I don’t mind some game shows in the summer, but I wish they’d did more drama shows in the summer
Fox used to have summer programming for “Beverly Hills, 90210.”
Anything on when/if So You Think You Can Dance is returning? I wouldn’t be surprised if it didn’t return after what happened, but I’m still a little hopeful.
does anybody know if Alter ego is coming back to fox?
I want to see another season of, I Can See You Voice.
