Descriptions of Newly Announced Programs:

"Don't Forget the Lyrics!"

"Don't Forget the Lyrics!" is a musical game show that tests contestants' knowledge of song lyrics from different genres, decades and artists. "Don't Forget the Lyrics!" is the ultimate rock star fantasy taking viewers on a dramatic, heart pounding, rollercoaster ride of music and edge-of-your seat entertainment. Mark McGrath, a member of the multi-platinum group, Sugar Ray, to host "Don't Forget the Lyrics!" where he brings ordinary people center stage for a chance to win a fortune - just by knowing the words to the biggest hit songs ever recorded. "Don't Forget the Lyrics!" first premiered on July 11, 2007 on FOX, as well as becoming an international phenomenon where contestants around the globe put their winnings on the line as they tried to not forget the lyrics.

"Burn Notice"

Sexy smash hit "Burn Notice" stars Jeffrey Donovan as Michael Westen, a blacklisted spy who finds himself stranded in sun-soaked Miami. Also starring are hot undercover agent Fiona (Gabrielle Anwar), beautiful ex-IRA operative and ex-girlfriend of Michael; Sam (Bruce Campbell), our favorite washed-up military intelligence muscle; and Michael's mother (Emmy Award-winner Sharon Gless), who is one tough cookie herself. " Burn Notice" was created, and is written and executive-produced by Matt Nix. Mikkel Bondesen also serves as executive producer. The series comes from Fox Television Studios and Fuse Entertainment.

"Without a Trace"

"Without a Trace": Investigating the aftermath of a murder means getting into the mind of the perpetrator, but when the victim unaccountably disappears, the job becomes much more challenging. It requires deconstructing the persona of the missing and reconstructing the unique, crucial components of their last known moments. That's where the work of the brilliant, New York-based FBI Missing Persons Squad begins. From powerhouse executive producer Jerry Bruckheimer and created by Hank Steinberg ("61*"), "Without a Trace" provides a fascinating glimpse into this rarely seen arena: the search for people who vanish inexplicably. For authoritative agent Jack Malone (Emmy(R) and Golden Globe winner Anthony LaPaglia) and his driven colleagues, finding the missing depends as much on figuring out who they are as it does on determining where they are. From Jerry Bruckheimer Television in association with CBS Productions and Warner Bros. Television, "Without a Trace" stars Anthony LaPaglia, Poppy Montgomery, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Enrique Murciano, Roselyn Sanchez and Eric Close. The series is executive produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman, Hank Steinberg, Jan Nash, Greg Walker, Ed Redlich and David Amann.

"Monk"

Tony Shalhoub ("Big Night," "Wings," "Men in Black," "Cars") has earned three Emmy Awards, a Golden Globe Award and two SAG Awards for Best Actor in a Comedy Series for his portrayal of Adrian Monk, a brilliant detective who suffers from obsessive-compulsive disorder. In the critically acclaimed original series "Monk," Monk's psychological disorder costs him his position as a legendary homicide detective on the San Francisco Police force. Due to the tragic unsolved murder of his wife, Monk has developed an abnormal fear of germs, heights, crowds and virtually everything else, which provides an unusual challenge to solving crimes ... not to mention his day-to-day existence. Traylor Howard ("Two Guys and a Girl," "Me, Myself and Irene"), Ted Levine ("Heat," "Moby Dick") and Jason Gray-Stanford ("Taken," "A Beautiful Mind") also star. "Monk" is executive produced by David Hoberman ("Raising Helen," "Bringing Down the House," "The Negotiator"), Andy Breckman ("Saturday Night Live," "The Late Show with David Letterman," "Rat Race"), Tony Shalhoub, Randy Zisk ("House," "Without a Trace') and Tom Scharpling ("The Best Show on WFMU"). "Monk" is from NBC Universal Cable Studios in association with Mandeville Films, Inc. and ABC Studios.
