Fox’s “Beat Shazam” will take a beat now, as the Jamie Foxx-hosted game show aired its season finale on Monday. Though the final episode of the summer stayed steady with last week’s ratings, the conclusion wasn’t enough to keep pace with most of the network’s main competition.

Could have been worse, however: “Beat Shazam” could have seen the Nielsen numbers for CW show “I Ship It.” More on that lower down.
