    Agreed that Singing Bee is much faster-paced than Don't Forget the Lyrics, and uses professional singers , but this is also one of the cheapest show on TV. The most a contestant can make is $50,000 per episode and in most cases, actually makes a lot less. DFTL contestants can make upto $1 million, I think. So they gotta slow it down and add fillers. NBC has generally been the cheapest of the four networks. Another NBC show, Last Comic Standing, has a prize money of only $250,000 after the entire season. Compare that to CBS' Power of 10, where contestants can win upto $10 million (by guessing, no talent required), and the first contestant won $1 million.

    I'd rather go on Singing Bee and try to win $50k than go on DFTL for a chance at a million, though.

    More importantly I would rather WATCH Singing Bee. Thats the important thing--its far more watchable.

    Monday, October 8th, 2007

    Join the party on Tuesday nights when America's hot summer sensation moves into the fall with the premier of The Singing Bee beginning Tuesday, October 2, from 8:00-8:30 PM ET (note this new date and time.) Packed with fresh new twists and exciting musical performers, this season is sure to have everyone belting out words to the most popular songs of all time. Former *NSYNC star and Emmy red carpet host Joey Fatone returns to host this ultimate sing-along variety game show, alongside house band Ray Chew and the Groove and the dancing Honey Bees.

    Musical guests will help kick off certain shows and will include iconic, fun and memorable talents in music, both past and present: Toni Basil (October 2) in a "One Hit Wonders" theme marking the premiere episode; Village People (October 16); Barry Manilow (October 23) in a special installment dedicated to unforgettable love songs; Ray Parker Jr. (October 30) in a Halloween-inspired show; and The Bangles (November 13). Additionally, on October 9, the show will spotlight the classic music of Paul McCartney and John Lennon. Finally, the December 4 installment highlights everyone's favorite television theme songs - with surprises in store!

    In addition to the aforementioned musical guest appearances, a number of other exciting changes are being featured in each of our upcoming episodes. Brand new karaoke-style games will be unveiled that will be certain to challenge our players and test their skills. Additionally, all winners will now be allowed to return for the next show and defend their crown - with no limit to the number of times they can repeat as champion and retain The Singing Bee trophy and bragging rights. A new and improved set will also serve to showcase the game and increase viewer enjoyment.

    In The Singing Bee, the audience-wide sing-along starts the show and results in lucky contestants being chosen to compete in a series of fun-filled singing games. There is no middle ground for partially correct answers as contestants must be perfect or they're out of the game. Family-friendly and conducive to playing (and singing) at home, The Singing Bee inspires hilarious wrong answers as well as amazing performances by those rare contestants who somehow manage to get every word right.

    I like the new twist to where you can keep coming back to defend your title, thus allowing you to win more money if you can make it to the end again.

    The Ray Parker Junior thing totally took me back. I loved the Ghostbusters and I used to love that song.
