"'The Stunner' Cohen is no exception, known for his flashy personal style and razor-sharp wit, like the others … he doesn’t like to lose."
Sara Haines, well-known as the co-host of the the network's daytime talk shows like The View, Strahan and Sara, which was later renamed Strahan, Sara and Keke, returns as the host of the third season of The Chase, which premieres on Tuesday, May 3, 2022, at 9.00 pm ET on ABC and streaming on Hulu.

Fan favorite game series Holey Moley is back with its fourth season titled Holey Moley Fore-Ever, which premieres on Tuesday, May 3, 2022 at 8.00 pm ET on ABC and streaming on Hulu.
The mini-golf competition series features an exciting collaboration for viewers "when the Muppets favorites unite with on-camera commentating duo Rob Riggle and Joe Tessitore, making for some un-fore-gettable hijinks."

3) Who Do You Believe?
Viewers will get to experience this innovative new series on Tuesday, May 3, 2022 at 10.00 pm ET on ABC and streaming on Hulu. The show features "simultaneous storytelling to take viewers through compelling true-crime cases from dual perspectives."
In each episode, the audience will get a dual experience - they will step into the shoes of two contrasting narratives to hear the recounts directly from the victims and criminals of the particular case, each of them giving never before revealed details bound to intrigue the viewers.
The viewer will then play "armchair detective" to deduce and piece together all the different information to uncover their version of the truth of the case. The synopsis reads:
"There are two sides to every story – and there’s no telling how far one would go for their marriage, child or way of life. Within this unique storytelling format, every episode culminates by revealing key details from the adjudicated cases leaving you to question: 'Who Do You Believe?'"
Who Do You Believe is produced by Lime Pictures in association with Walt Disney Television’s newly formed alternative production unit. Executive producers include Sarah Tyekiff, Ben Crompton and Alex Weresow. Weresow is also the showrunner.
Tune in to ABC to check out these amazing game shows that will intrigue viewers and keep them on their toes for surprises that may come along the way. While there are some that are new, others are marking their return because of their popularity.
