ABC's game show revival is a big winner!
The Disney-owned network has renewed The $100,000 Pyramid for its third season.
The announcement was made Sunday during ABC's portion of the Television Critics Association's summer press tour.
The series is part of ABC's Sunday night branded Fun and Games block.
Pyramid, hosted by Michael Strahan, has been a consistent performer in its 10 p.m. slot and has been running No. 1 in its 10 p.m. time slot on Sundays this summer. The show retains 100% of its lead-in among adults 18-49.
"Returning for season three definitely goes under the category ‘Things that are Awesome,’” Strahan said. “It has been such an honor continuing the legacy of the legendary Dick Clark as host of Pyramid. Looking forward to another season of giving away ABC’s money.”
The show joins the third season of the Alec Baldwin-hosted Match Game and fourth season of Celebrity Family Feud. ABC has had success with its retro game shows across the schedule.
