Celebrity Name That Tune is back for its third season with a whole new lineup of celebrities competing for the ultimate title. The new season takes the Wednesday night spot previously held by the The Masked Singer season 8

Each week’s hour-long episode is split into two games with different contestants and a rotation of different games inspired by the original Name That Tune game show. After testing their knowledge, the celebrities face off in the Bid-A-Note round and the player with the most money at the end of Bid-A-Note wins the game. Once a winner is crowned, the contestant has a chance to take his or her money to the Golden Medley round for a chance to win even more money for their charity. 

This year, contestants are playing for a $100,000 grand price in an all-new finale round, The Main Event for Big Gold.
