ABC Reviving Game-Show Classic ‘$100,000 Pyramid’
It looks like one of my favorite game shows is coming to prime-time for the first time ever.
According to Vulture.com, ABC and producer Sony Pictures Television are brining back The $100,000 Pyramid as a weekly prime-time series. As Pyramid fans know, the host of the show during its initial run was the great Dick Clark. So who is filling his shoes?
Vulture has learned that former NFL superstar Michael Strahan will serve as the new host, as if he's not everywhere on your television already. The show is expected to get a ten-episode run on ABC this summer which could lead to more if the ratings are strong.
In good news, the basic format is expected to remain the same:
Two teams of celebrities and civilians partner up to give and receive clues in various word-association games. The winning team then gets a chance to play in a big-money bonus round, which over the years has ranged from $10,000 to $100,000.
If you're unfamiliar with the show, check out some highlights below. Now I patiently wait for the reboot of my favorite game show ever, Press Your Luck.
