Last summer, FOX ran seven unscripted TV series, and its Beat Shazam TV show landed in the middle of the pack, when we rank by Nielsen ratings performance. Now that it is back for a third season, can it build up its audience, or is it all down hill from here? Will Beat Shazam be cancelled or renewed for season four? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
A FOX interactive, musical game show hosted by Jamie Foxx, Beat Shazam features a group of two-player teams, who race against the clock, and each other, to identify song selections. Corinne Foxx returns as the Deejay in season three. During each round, Jamie presents a choice of two musical categories. The object is to be the first team to correctly identify the song’s title. While low-scoring teams are eliminated from the game show, the team which banks the most money will ultimately advance to compete against the Shazam app, for a chance at a huge cash prize.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly in the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.
