The competition series Mental Samurai airs tonight on the Fox network. Hosted by Rob Lowe, the series follows contestants as they fight the boundaries of their minds to answer questions, in addition to being physically transported around the set at high speeds in a large capsule. The premiere starts at 9/8 c.
For those who want to watch the show but do not have a cable subscription or any login info, there are still ways to watch Rent: Live as it airs. If you don’t have cable or can’t get to a TV, you can watch a live stream of Fox on your computer, phone or streaming device via one of the following cable-free, live-TV streaming services:
Fox (available live in most markets) is one of 75-plus channels included in the main Fubo bundle. You can sign up for a free 7-day trial right here, and you can then watch a live stream of the show on your computer via the FuboTV website, or on your phone (Android and iPhone supported), tablet, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast or other supported device via the FuboTV app.
If you can’t watch live, FuboTV comes with 30 hours of Cloud DVR (with the ability to upgrade to 500 hours), as well as a “72-Hour Lookback” feature, which allows you to watch most shows up to three days after they air even if you forgot to record them.
In addition to a massive on-demand streaming library, Hulu also offers a bundle of 50-plus live TV channels, including Fox (available live in most markets). You can sign up for “Hulu with Live TV” right here, and you can then watch a live stream of the show on your computer via the Hulu website, or on your phone (Android and iPhone supported), tablet, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Echo Show or other streaming device via the Hulu app.
If you can’t watch live, “Hulu with Live TV” comes with both its extensive on-demand library (which has most shows available after they air) and 50 hours of Cloud DVR storage (with the ability to upgrade to “Enhanced Cloud DVR,” which gives you 200 hours of DVR space and the ability to fast forward through commercials).

Mental Samurai aims to put a new spin on the competition format, and host Rob Lowe is eager to be a part of it. “When I was 15, I won big on The $10,000 Pyramid,” he told Variety. “I’ve loved mental competition shows ever since. For me, Mental Samurai is addicting. Every time you play, you think: ‘THIS time I’m gonna win!’ But this very simple game is almost impossible to crack. Also, as a producer, I’m excited to get into this new arena.”
Rob Wade, the president of alternative entertainment at Fox, also had positive things to say about the series. “Mike Darnell and Arthur Smith are two of the most innovative and creative minds in unscripted television whose collaborations have been responsible for so many attention-grabbing Fox hits,” he remarked. “Along with our incredibly entertaining host, Rob Lowe, they are the ideal partners for this one-of-a kind high-velocity competition series that takes the game show genre to the next level.”
“Rob Lowe is the real deal,” added the aforementioned Darnell. “We’re incredibly lucky to have someone so committed to quality, and who brings an unparalleled zeal to each of his projects. He’s the perfect partner for this new series that is a literal thrill ride for your brain.”
