It's unofficially summer, which means that it's a perfect time for Fox to debut a new game show involving Twilight star Kellan Lutz and a bunch of people acting as human darts in an attempt to win $50,000. (Seriously, it's happening! On Wednesdays this summer!)

As the days get longer and our attention spans get shorter, networks have swapped out their heavy dramas for fun programming, like a revival of early '00s game show Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader or the aforementioned Bullseye.

Here's Us Weekly's guide to all the new competition series hitting TV this summer.
