The TV networks are announcing their Summer 2021 lineups (which mostly consist of game shows and game-based reality competition series). And it looks like we’ll be getting a double dose of three television personalities:
The “Saturday Night Live” vet lends her voice to Season 2 of FOX’s animated series “Duncanville”. It premieres with two episodes on Sunday May 23rd at 8:30 and 9:30pm before moving to its regular night and time on Monday May 31st at 9:30pm. FOX clearly likes “Duncanville”, already renewing it for its third season.
Speaking of third seasons, that’s what we’ll get of Poehler and co-host Nick Offerman’s home builders competition program “Making It” on NBC. It returns on Thursday nights at 8pm starting June 3rd.
FOX has tapped “The Soup” maestro and “Community” actor to host a new cooking/mystery competition series “Crime Scene Kitchen”. It will air Wednesdays at 9pm starting May 26th.
And right afterwards, beginning June 9th, you can flip over to ABC. New episodes of the “Card Sharks” revival McHale hosts on ABC began airing last October, finishing in January. But there are still more episodes in the can, which will be shown on Wednesdays at 10pm.
Without football, “The Simpsons” and this foul-mouthed chef and iconic TV personality, would the FOX network still exist? Ramsay’s double dose includes re-vamping “Hell’s Kitchen” with a new season of chefs ages 23 years old and younger. “Hell’s Kitchen: Young Guns” begins Monday May 31st at 8pm.
And then on FOX’s Wednesday night lineup at 8pm is a brand new, shaken-up season of “Masterchef”. All-time legends including Emril and Paula Dean will help guide (and critique) a group of talented contestants. “Masterchef: Legends” starts June 2nd.
