Stars on Mars
Tired of watching B-list celebrities sing in elaborate costumes or attempt to do the paso doble? In this new Fox unscripted series streaming on Hulu, a dozen stars (from NFL great Marshawn Lynch to UFC fighter Ronda Rousey to Modern Family alum Ariel Winter) compete in space-camp challenges as if preparing to colonize Mars. William Shatner, 92, oversees the madness, raising an eyebrow when some competitors mistake cyclist Lance Armstrong, 51, for late Apollo 11 legend Neil Armstrong.
