Fox has re-upped the app-based music fest.
I said it's an original game show, but Beat Shazam is really a kind of reboot of Name That Tune. Still, they didn't have mobile apps back then, so I guess we can call this a new format. The show has drawn decent numbers, and Fox particularly likes its social media presence. They didn't have social media back in the Name That Tune days, either.
I think the show is surprisingly watchable, though the guest stars seem a little superfluous. But the names might bring in some viewers, and that's what counts with the Nielsen Company. There's no word on when the second season will debut, though Jamie Foxx will return as host. There's also no word on a renewal for Love Connection, which has lagged behind Beat Shazam in the ratings.
