TX Time: 18h00
Genre: Game Show, Music

Beat Shazam

Hosted by Jamie Foxx, Beat Shazam is an interactive game show in which teams of two race against the clock and each other as they attempt to identify the biggest hit songs of all time.

In the end, the team with the highest score will outlast the competition and go against Shazam, the world's most popular song identification app, for the chance to win a cash prize.

During each episode, four teams of two players go ear-to-ear for a chance to win a cash prize.

In each round, Foxx presents a choice of two music categories, ranging from '80s Favourites' to Beyoncé hits.

Teams will hear a song and try to identify its correct title before all the other teams.

As the rounds progress, quicker pairs will continue building their banks, while players with the lowest score will be eliminated until only one team remains.

That team will play man-versus-machine and attempt to Beat Shazam.

The series is executive-produced by Mark Burnett (Survivor, The Apprentice, The Voice and Shark Tank).

TX Time: 18h30
Genre: Comedy


From the producers of The Good Place comes an aspirational comedy about the best bar in San Diego, home to good prices, great company and, of course, Abby.

This unlicensed, makeshift bar nestled in her backyard is the opposite of everything annoying about today's party scene.

There are rules at Abby's: no cellphones (not even to "look something up"), earning a seat at the bar takes time and losing a challenge means drinking a limey, sugary "not-beer" drink.

As the oddball cast of regulars will tell you, hanging out at Abby's is a coveted honour. But once you're in, you're family.

In the series premiere, Abby's (Natalie Morales) unlicensed backyard bar hits a major snag when new landlord Bill (Nelson Franklin), who recently inherited the house from his deceased aunt, shows up and proposes major changes.

High Maintenance 3

Providing a peek into the cramped apartments, grinding routines and urban neuroses of New Yorkers, the show weaves together a labyrinth of humour, poignant observations and heartfelt moments in stories that explore the lives of intriguing and colourful individuals from all walks of life.

Ben Sinclair returns as The Guy, a bearded, pot-dealing deliveryman whose growing clientele is keeping him busier than ever.

In the Season 3 premiere, "M.A.S.H.": While spending time away from the city in his RV, The Guy gets upsetting news, but makes an intriguing new connection.

Cori, meanwhile, tries to adjust to a new reality without her friend.

In the second episode of the weekly double bill, "Craig": After his bike is stolen, regular customer Marty consults The Guy, whose suggestion sends him down a surprising path.

Bored with her mundane life, Darby finds ways to unnerve and bewilder strangers.

Paranormal Lockdown

TX Time: 21h45
Genre: Reality, Supernatural

Paranormal Lockdown

Paranormal all-star Nick Groff and ghost hunter Katrina Weidman host this 13-episode series that stretches the limits of paranormal investigations.

In each episode, the pair confines themselves to some of the most terrifying places in the world for 72 hours straight.

Living in haunted locations, Groff and Weidman believe the longer they stay, the more chance they have that the local spirits will communicate with them, allowing them to gather more information about the unknown.

They tackle the trauma behind a colonial manor in Massachusetts, the horror stories behind Shrewsbury Prison in England, and try to learn the truth behind a shadowy presence in the St Ignatius Hospital halls in Washington.

Using state of the art high-resolution cameras and never-before-seen paranormal technology, they collect surprising new images and sounds.

But the mission comes with risks: alone, exhausted, mentally broken, they'll be vulnerable to whatever lies within.

Backyard Envy

James DeSantis, Garrett Magee and Melissa Brasier make up the exclusive exterior design and high-end landscaping firm, the Manscapers

Go along for the ride as this set of best friends and business partners reimagine outdoor spaces and help their clients turn the ordinary into the extraordinary.

In every episode they hatch a plan to do a full outdoor renovation design, from rooftops to backyards in the suburbs and beyond.

These "Two Wills and a Grace" are put to the test as they juggle tight deadlines, multiple clients and each other as they transform barren outdoor spaces into lush, jaw-dropping escapes.

In the premiere episode, James sets the team up with a job in the suburbs, but problems arise when Mel and the construction team strike water while building a stone patio.

Meanwhile, Garrett creates a beach-inspired rooftop meadow for a couple, but things get hot while adding some extra flare to the project's planter boxes.
