*Answer this. Do you want to be a thousandaire?
Of course you do. Only thing better would be being millionaire … or billionaire!
Anywho, we can help you with the thousandaire part. That’s because “The $100,000 Pyramid” is being rebooted and is headed to prime time on ABC this summer.
This new incarnation of the classic game show, in which a celebrity and an average citizen team up against another celebrity and another average citizen to play a word-association game, will be hosted by New York Giants Hall of Famer and “Live! with Kelly and Michael” co-host Michael Strahan, according to Entertainment Weekly.
Readers old enough to know remember the show started out as “The $10,000 Pyramid” in 1973 on CBS before moving to ABC the following year with the late Dick Clark as host. Over the years, various versions have aired in daytime, syndication and cable (GSN aired “The Pyramid” in 2012), but this is the first time the show will air as a regular series in prime time. ABC has ordered 10 episodes of “The $100,000 Pyramid,” and this newest edition is believed to be pretty close to the original version.
By the way, another hit ABC prime-time game show is set to come back this Summer as well. We’re talking about the Steve Harvey-hosted “Celebrity Family Feud.”
Hmm, do we notice a trend here? Michael Strahan and Steve Harvey?
