Bummer.

He created three of the most famous game shows out there.

Of course, the main game of Pyramid is just the end round of the original Password. But, hey, it's not stealing when you created it in the first place.

I'd also point out that the Bob Barker/Drew Carey era of The Price Is Right is way different from his version of The Price Is Right. There were no pricing games; it was basically what would become Contestant's Row in the newer version done several times with the same group of contestants, leading into the Showcase between the top two. So no Plinko.
