NATPE 2010: Twentieth to Launch ‘Don’t Forget the Lyrics’ in First-Run

Don’t Forget the Lyrics, the recent Fox game show hosted by Wayne Brady, has a new home effective this fall: first-run syndication. 

The distributor will launch a half-hour version of the musical quiz show with recording artist and former Extra anchor Mark McGrath as host (Brady, of course, is currently hosting the network revival of Let’s Make a Deal). Don’t Forget the Lyrics has been sold to the Fox Television Stations in the top 10 markets including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Houston and Washington, D.C.

In addition to running in syndication, Don’t Forget the Lyrics will air on VH1 and, in prime time, on MyNetworkTV, where it will be paired on Tuesday with returning Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?
