THURSDAY: You Are Watching Foxx
"Beat Shazam", "Love Connection" Sampled
From CarterMatt.com

Nobody could Beat Shazam in the demo on this first post-season Thursday, as the Fox game show debuted to a 1.2 rating (along with 3.6 million total viewers).

Leading out of that, Andy Cohen’s Love Connection reboot retained 3.4 mil and a 1.1.

Both episodes are now available on Fox.com, the Fox Now app, Hulu, and On Demand.

Over on NBC, the celeb edition of American Ninja Warrior drew 4.2 mil/1.1, followed by Running Wild With Julia Roberts‘ 4 mil/0.9. Come 10 pm, the Peacock’s Red Nose Day special proper (2.7 mil/0.7) rose 23 percent and a tenth from last year. This year, over $35 million was raised for children in need.

Fox and NBC ran total viewers to a dead heat, but CBS’ Big Bang Theory rerun drew Thursday’s largest audience, with 6.4 million viewers.

Your First Look at "The Crystal Maze" with Richard Ayoade
Catch It June!
From Metro

Rejoice Crystal Maze fans, the game show’s revival is at hand and it’ll be coming in June.

Like the original show, teams of five contestants will take on a series of challenges and games across four different zones: Aztec, Future, Medieval and Industrial.

They will face a range of skill, mystery, physical and mental challenges to win crystals that equate to time in the final test – the legendary Crystal Dome. A number of celebrity specials will also air in aid of Stand Up 2 Cancer later this year, after proving a hit with viewers following its revival last year.

The series is filmed at a swanky purpose-built maze in Bristol that spans over 30,000 square feet, and it’s being created by original Crystal Maze designer, James Dillon (The Royle Family).

Meanwhile we’ve just been given a first glimpse of Richard Ayoade in his new role as the presenter this series. The actor and funnyman will be bringing his witty charm to your screens when he officially joins the show this year as presenter.

In the first official pics showing off the new host, Richard is seen donning a slick, red blazer combo which screams ready for business.

Oh, and a white shirt that has insects on it.

The IT Crowd star will front 20 hour-long episodes on Channel 4 which are due to air later this year.

American Ninja vs. the World
Catch It June 4
From Broadway World

NBC will present its annual high-stakes international competition "American Ninja Warrior: USA VS. THE WORLD" on Sunday, June 4 at 8-11 p.m. ET/PT. Three separate teams of six from North America, Europe and Latin America will compete in Las Vegas on the first three stages of Mt. Midoriyama, the famed four-stage finals course featured in "American Ninja Warrior." Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbajabiamila are set to host and Kristine Leahy will co-host.

The audience will be in for a surprise as one of the ninjas makes history.

Team USA features several members hoping to make a big impression, including veteran competitor Brian Arnold and six-time repeat competitor Drew Drechsel, both of whom have nearly made it to stage four in Las Vegas in years past.

Also joining the team this season will be Daniel Gil and Los Angeles stuntwoman Jessie Graff, who wowed audiences last September with her stunning appearance in the Las Vegas finals. Rounding out Team USA are Josh Levin and Jake Murray.

Team Europe features several all-stars, including returning ninjas Stefano Ghisolfi (Italy), Alexander Mars (Sweden), Sean McColl (France) and Tim Shieff (England). McColl and Ghisolfi are world-class rock climbers and Shieff is a world champion free runner and the top performer in the U.K.'s version of "Ninja Warrior," while Mars is a top finisher in the Swedish version. Two new team members include England's Owen McKenzie and Denmark's Bjarke Tonnesen.

For the first time, this season's "USA vs. the World" will feature competitors from Latin America. The intrepid ninjas include Santiago de Alba (Mexico), Wid Eriksen (Mexico), Karl Fow (Venezuela), Diego Gonzalez (Mexico), Danee Marmolejo (Mexico) and David Saikin (Argentina). De Alba and Gonzalez are both highly decorated Mexican climbing champions, Eriksen is an acrobat by trade, Fow and Marmolejo are both world renown freerunners and stuntmen, and Saikin is an Argentinean climbing champion.

Contestants will tackle "American Ninja Warrior's" punishing Las Vegas finals course in a head-to-head format that pits members from each team against one another.
