Spike struck a chord with Lip Sync Battle last year and now is continuing its push into the fake-singing realm. The cable net has greenlighted Caraoke Showdown, a Craig Robinson-hosted half-hour special that marks the cable net’s second quasi-musical number inspired by a late-night talk show.
Whereas Lip Sync Battle — which is the most-watched show in Spike history and was renewed for a third season last month — builds on the popular bit on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Caraoke Showdown recalls the popular “Carpool Karaoke” segment from The Late Late Show With James Corden. Last month’s edition featuring Adele has more than 63 million views on YouTube.
