MTV (Weekdays, 7:30 P.M. ET)


The music channel, which had such success with its game show Remote Control, rolls out a new (and rather similar) one this week. In a nightclubby setting, three contestants choose categories on a Jeopardy!-like board filled with obvious pop-music trivia questions. A rocking house band plays the songs in the "Name That Tune" segment that makes up the third and final round.

Host Jordan Brady sets an irreverent, hyper tone. He seems to be trying too hard and can be intrusive and mean to the players. He'll probably find his balance soon. For now, this zippy half hour is a good fit for the MTV environment.
