The 13-episode extreme mini-golf competition series swings into season two as Holey Moley II: The Sequel. Its sophomore season will showcase self-proclaimed mini-golf lovers from around the country as they compete head-to-head through an epic obstacle golf course. In each episode, eight contestants will put their skills to the test as they face off in out-of-this-world challenges on the supersized course. The winners of each episode will return to the Holey Moley course for the all-star grand finale, where one will be crowned winner and claim the $250,000 prize. On-camera commentators Rob Riggle and Joe Tessitore are back alongside sideline correspondent Jeannie Mai.
To Tell the Truth
Hosted and executive produced by black-ish star Anthony Anderson, the funny reimagination of the beloved game show will return for its fifth season and once again feature prominent pop-culture icons and unique commentary and banter from Anderson’s mother, Mama Doris. In each round, the panel will be presented with three people who all claim to be the same person with the same incredible achievement, job, or talent. One will be sworn to tell the truth while the other two use every trick in the book to deceive the panel. The panel of celebrities will have a chance to grill each participant before taking turns deciding who they think is telling the truth. Additional celebrity panelists featured this season include Ashanti, Brad Garrett, Michael Strahan, Mark Duplass, Mike Tyson, Patti LaBelle, Rita Moreno, Yara Shahidi, and many others.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
The beloved series will be returning for a dramatic seventh and final season. Coulson (Clark Gregg) and the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are thrust backward in time and stranded in 1931 New York City. With the all-new Zephyr set to time-jump at any moment, the team must hurry to find out exactly what happened. If they fail, it would mean disaster for the past, present, and future of the world. The Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. cast includes Disney Legend Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Chloe Bennet as Daisy Johnson, Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leopold Fitz, Henry Simmons as Director Alphonso “Mack” MacKenzie, Natalia Cordova-Buckley as Elena “Yo-Yo” Rodriguez, and Jeff Ward as Deke Shaw.

Contestants will then use their spins to win cash and prizes while trying to avoid the WHAMMY, who could take all of their winnings and leave them with nothing. The winning contestant moves on to the new bonus game to face the WHAMMY in a final battle for the chance to win $1 million.
