I'm glad they're only rebooting the $20,000 Pyramid and not the $10,000, $25,000, $50,000, New $25,000 or $100,000 Pyramids as they were clearly inferior spin-offs

But they change the theme song, so help me god....

Ehh, I'd watch a show with Jerry from Parks and Rec. He's the only one on there I even could put a face to a name.

Danny Pudi and Yvette Nicole Brown should be good.

I wish Megyn Price could do it with Donal Logue.

Actually, the new Pyramid has no dollar value attached, and the winner's circle prize can go from $10,000 to $50,000.

But they did use a cover version of the $25,000 Pyramid theme song, so it's okay.

Meh. Bring back Match Game. I will watch that.

Uh...a vacuum...Hayden Winters...my ex-wife....reboot of the $20,000 Pyramid...a bus station hustler...

They already rebooted Pyramid, which was hosted by Donny Osmond.

...and we shall never speak of that again.

Why?

Half the fun of Match Game was the innuendo. In a modern version, that would all be gone, replaced by D-List celebs that aren't half as good as Charles Nelson Reilly or Brett Somers just coming out and saying whatever dirty thing everyone is thinking, and probably getting bleeped.

Clarissa (the one who explained things) and Ellen from Pete and Pete are on the same team, and ZZ from Salute your Shorts and that meth-head from Full House are on the other team, and all of the questions are sexy or super-nerdy and most of them require dancing or various contortions.

please.

Donny's Pyramid farked things up.

shiatty set, 6 words in 20 seconds, trying too hard to be hip, no real Pyramid music or sound effects...

The only way they could make a modern Match Game fun is if they had folks with Dawson's tongue in cheek humor and the chemistry between the cast like the old show. Which...is hard to come by in the 'dog eat dog' world.

Then again, Robin Williams and Vin Diesel would probably have the stuff.

Cool. I loved that show. I love word games.

Still pissed about one event on the rebooted "Password" show: the word was "Superman" and the clue giver said "Spider-man" and got buzzed because they said it was two words. Lame.

A couple I know dressed as them for Halloween a few years back. Most people seemed to think they were Thurston and Lovey from Gilligan's Island.

I wouldn't call Chandra Wilson a C lister. B probably, but she ranks above Carrot Top for sure. She doesn't do a lot, but what she does, she does well.

They tried that. Back in 1998, there was an ill-fated version where the regulars were George Hamilton and a diabeetus-addled Nell Carter. 80% of the questions were Clinton Jokes and/or Viagra Jokes.

I want to say I've heard on a podcast or two Andy Richter was brought in to host a reboot of the Pyramid and shot a few test episodes. That would be the one I'd like to see.

That was the 2010 pilot that was shot for TBS or CBS. It went nowhere because CBS decided that they needed a View rip-off talk show hosted by the head of the network's wife.

The new Pyramid is decent, and hosted by the guy who is executive producer of The Price is Right.

I miss the fun game shows like match game or press your luck. Big money game shows just wastes time with drama, life changing stories, dramatic pauses, surprise commerical breaks... etc etc. Deal or no deal is a prime example of all of that. It's not about the money money money...

Nipsey Russell was the best.

And, of course, Match Game.

You already missed Danny and Yvette; they were on last week. I'm sure GSN has plenty of reruns lined up though.

At least I've heard of Carrot Top.


\If they hadn't listed what each person was "famous" for, I wouldn't have a clue as to who any of these people are.

Shoot. I guess that shows how much I pay attention to that channel.
