Million Dollar Money Drop
Million Dollar Money Drop (Monday, 8/7c, Fox)
This is how game-show sensations are born — and Fox certainly hopes this will be their version of Who Wants To Be a Millionaire. Airing Monday-Thursday this week (Tuesday and Wednesday's installments air at 9/8c, with a two-hour finale on Thursday), this game, hosted by comedian Kevin Pollak, is pretty simple. Contestants are asked multiple-choice questions with a million dollars in cash on the line. They put the cash on the answers they think are correct — one must always be left blank — and if they're wrong, the cash they've distributed on the wrong answer disappears down a chute. Panic sets in pretty quickly. The two-hour premiere goes head-to-head with the finale of NBC's holiday hit The Sing-Off.

The Sing Off
The Sing-Off remains a full-throated ratings act, a back-up performer only to CBS formidable comedy lineup.
Fans of Criminal Minds were of one mind Wednesday night, leading CBS to a sweep in the 18-to-49 demographic.

A year later, a cappella music is again in focus thanks to Glee's recent best-selling single "Teenage Dream" (which coincidentally features former Sing-Off competitors, the Beelzebubs) and the return of The Sing-Off.
