CBS is planning to revive "Name That Tune." The network has ordered a pilot for a new, updated version of the classic music game show.
Casting is slated to begin shortly.
In "Name That Tune", contestants of all ages compete against each other to test their knowledge of songs via hundreds of proven games, including the signature “Bid-a-Note” round.
"Name That Tune" premiered on NBC Radio in 1952. It quickly made the leap to television and aired from 1953-1959 on NBC and CBS. After a 17-year hiatus, the show returned for a syndication run from 1974-1981 and then again in 1984, with Tom Kennedy and then Jim Lange as the host.
