    TORONTO, Aug. 10 /CNW/ - MuchMoreMusic launches a new season of homegrown
and international series set to entertain and engage music and pop-culture
fanatics across the country.
    Two new MuchMoreOrginal series beef up the MuchMoreMusic roster this
fall: Tip of My Tongue, a cheeky, play-along-at-home quiz show that is also
the first mobile-enabled interactive show ever developed in Canada; and
Popaganda, a big-themed hour that pulls back the veil on the most
controversial and compelling stories in music and entertainment. Other new
reality-addict additions include Gene Simmons: Family Jewels, Mission: Man
Band, Rock Life, and Celebrity Fit Club II. The new adds join a must-see slew
of MuchMore programming like Listed and The Story Of... . MuchMoreMusic's
fresh fall line-up kicks off August 19th.

    MuchMoreMusic's Fall Programming includes:

    Tip of My Tongue
    New MuchMoreOriginal Series Premiere Sunday, August 19 at 8:30pm ET

    This half-hour quiz show tests viewers on the most useless pop-culture
knowledge they have picked up from hours of listening to music, watching
MuchMoreMusic, reading tabloids and talking trash with their friends. To see
who knows the most about nothing, gather around the tube and text in answers
on the first mobile-enabled interactive show in Canada. Get online at
muchmoremusic.com for standings and more info.

    Popaganda
    New MuchMoreOriginal Series Premiere Monday, August 20 at 10pm ET

    Why are we obsessed with dead rock stars? Is there such a thing as a
musical sell-out? Can you be too rich and too thin? And why is young Hollywood
out of control? Popaganda seeks the answers to these questions and more
through expert commentators and dynamic interviews with musicians and
celebrities.

    Gene Simmons: Family Jewels
    New Series Premiere Sunday, August 19 at 8pm ET

    Cocky. Ballsy. In-your-face. This KISS legend is full of unabashed ego.
Lucky for him, he's got a feisty former Playmate, Shannon Tweed, keeping him
in line every step of the way. They've been happily unmarried for more than 22
years and this reality trip delivers a fascinating look at their red-hot
chemistry as they raise a non-traditional family in the midst of constant
chaos.

    Celebrity Fit Club II
    New Series Premiere Tuesday, August 21 at 10pm ET

    Cozy in on the couch and watch eight overweight celebrities compete in
teams of four in a battle of the bulge to see which team can lose the most
weight. Contestants include the ex-lead singer of Warrant, Jani Lane.

    Mission: Man Band
    New Series Premiere Date and Air Time TBA

    Four boy-band legends - Bryan Abrams (Color Me Badd), Rich Cronin (LFO),
Chris Kirkpatrick ((*)NSYNC) and Jeff Timmons (98 Degrees) - live together to
create new music and perform as a brand-new pop group.

    Rock Life
    New Series Premiere Date and Air Time TBA

    Led by singer/songwriter Cisco Adler, son of music mogul Lou Adler, with
Alex Orbison, son of Roy Orbison, on drums, this rock-umentary series follows
perennial almost-rans Whitestarr as they strive for a hit record while living
the rock-star life in L.A.

    Live From Abbey Road
    New Series Premiere Wednesday, August 22 at 8pm ET

    In each one-hour episode, one iconic band, one top singer/songwriter and
