Celebrity Family Feud, $100,000 Pyramid and To Tell The Truth are all coming back for another season:

Pardon my language, but I do believe we all need to calm the f*** down.

...Would've been fantastic if ABC could add Card Sharks (or even Millionaire) to that block.

A new primetime Millionaire for the US version's 20th anniversary would be fun since you mentioned it.

I don't think Regis is interested in dying his hair anymore...

Besides Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, is this ABC's first regular airing of game shows in primetime since the Super Jeopardy!/Monopoly hour on Saturday nights from the summer of 1990.  I vividly recall eating ice cream sandwiches and watching those game shows then switching over to NBC at 10pm for Saturday Night's Main Event.

Millionaire doesn’t really fit the vibe they’ve seemed to go for. And Card Sharks? I don’t see that working without some radical retooling. Not to say a property can’t be reimagined, as TTTT certainly proved. I’m just not sure it could be successful.

As it is, ABC has been giving us multiple hours of games for what will be four summers.
I'm grateful to them for that and don't think they're in need of giving more real estate on the schedule.

I wouldn't think Regis would host a new primetime Millionaire either at this point, it would likely be Chris Harrison depending on the Bachelor/Bachelorette taping schedule and Regis would make a guest appearance. I know it wouldn't really fit in with the current lineup Fun and Games lineup, but they could add it in on another night depending on what other programming they have next summer.

Card Sharks would most likely have to be tweaked for the hour format.  As a half hour show I think, as it is, it would fit right in but as an hour long show that would get pretty redundant.  On the other hand, I have seen one full game and Money Cards take up almost a full half hour during Perry's version though, so who knows.

Regis is pushing 90. He is not hosting Millionaire.

All of the current games they run are celebrity driven. I don’t see a reason they’d deviate from that formula at present.

I COULD see a revamped Tattletales pop up eventually.

I kinda hope not.  Most of the magic of TattleTales was, in my opinion anyway, that most of the questions were pretty tame but were designed to draw out a story or a witty remark.  Based on what we see with the current edition of Match Game, one only has to ponder what kind of questions would be asked on a new version of TattleTales.

*Shudders* Sometimes I think being subtle is a lost art in entertainment. That's part of what made Benny Hill a successful comedian.
