Fox Belts Out More 'Lyrics'

December 5, 2007 9:35 PM

Fox has renewed its musical game show “Don’t Forget the Lyrics” for another 13 episodes, sources say.

The series, hosted by Wayne Brady, has helped Fox gain a foothold on Thursday nights along with companion series “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?” The most recent episode earned a 2.8 rating in the ultra-competitive 9 p.m. hour.

"Lyrics'" recent Friday repeat scored a 1.6, twice as much as lead-in “The Next Great American Band.”

Fox plans to continue running originals of the duo on Thursdays starting Jan. 10.

"Lyrics" is produced by RDF USA.
