New episodes of Don't Forget the Lyrics! will air in Fox's Thursdays at 9PM ET/PT time period, with encore broadcasts of every week's episode airing on Friday nights in the 8PM ET/PT time period. Comedian Wayne Brady will reprise his hosting duties in the new episodes.
Each one-hour episode of Don't Forget the Lyrics! follows different contestants who choose songs from a variety of genres, time periods and artists before taking the stage in-front of a studio audience. The studio's band will start to play, the song's lyrics will appear on a screen and then suddenly the music will cease and the words will disappear, leaving the contestant all by their lonesome in filling in the correct missing lyric.
Following each correct response given by the contestant, he or she must decide to "Stay & Play" or "Take the Money & Run." If the contestant decides to stay and is correctly able to fill-in the missing lyrics nine times, they'll be presented with a No. 1 hit and one final missing lyric for the top prize of $1 million.
Don't Forget the Lyrics! is being produced by RDF USA and Brad Lachman Productions, with Lachman, Jeff Apploff, Chris Coelen and Greg Goldman serving as executive producers and Brian Veskosky serving as co-executive producer. Apploff is credited with creating the show.
