Mental Samurai

FOX | 9:00 pm

Host Rob Lowe returns to launch the sophomore season of this unconventional competition, an improbable combination of game show, sporting event and thrill ride. Contestants vie with one another, and a ticking clock, while being whipped around the arena strapped into Ava, a high-speed capsule with a robotic arm that can turn the players a full 260 degrees. It's like an obstacle course for the mind, as the contestants fight to stay focused and answer questions of general knowledge.
