DESCRIPTION: (from USA's press release, September 2013) USA Network is bringing back family night on Fridays from 8-11PM ET/PT, giving viewers the opportunity to share an evening together full of music and laughter. New holiday season reality series event, IT TAKES A CHOIR, moves to a new night and time on Fridays at 10pm ET/PT, immediately following themed episodes of MODERN FAMILY. IT TAKES A CHOIR follows the dapper and charismatic British sensation Gareth Malone as he travels across the U.S. to unite an unexpected mix of characters through the spellbinding power of music. A true fish out of water, in both his environment and teaching style, Malone finds himself in the craziest situations with some of the biggest characters. Each episode culminates in a unified and powerful public performance from the choir in front of their family, friends and community.
