Pyramid was supposed to tape this month, but no episodes have been produced yet.

Also of note in the article is that the Who Wants to be a Millionaire revival will move to Thursdays at 8pm eastern (I assume that's what the lead-off spot is) beginning April 30.

Ditto for Card Sharks and Supermarket Sweep, according to Buzzerblog. I doubt we'll see any of those three this summer.

There's a theory that we may see those later in the summer/early fall as some productions may struggle to get back up again and these could be rushed into production and taped quickly.

It wouldn’t surprise me at all to see game shows used as filler content this fall.
We have found ourselves in the middle of a situation that is truly unprecedented.  Our favorite game show has taken unprecedented steps to get back on the air with new episodes in its 49th season.  Sure, it will look and feel a bit weird at first, but at the end of the day, it’s still the same show we all know and love.  And despite some of the rhetoric you may hear, whether it be on the news or here on this very board, this is most certainly not a “new” normal.  The ‘normal’ we loathe so deeply will return.  Might be next year.  Might be the year after.  Until then, appreciate this era of the show for what it is and look forward to the day when we have ~300 screaming fans packed inside the Bob Barker Studio at CBS in Hollywood once again — hopefully very soon.

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

Did anyone see Press Your Luck last night?  What a way to start the new season!

There is no good reason to stretch one game of Family Feud into a full hour. Two games in the same slot was just fine. Waiting for Steve to reveal the answers was like pulling teeth. It's even worse when he laughs before reading the questions. If they've been accommodating his style of hosting for years now, he should know what the questions are going to be like.

On a lighter note, Press Your Luck's bonus round is starting to grow on me. It's still a tacky add-on, but when done right, it's exciting.

I hope that's not the new normal for Celebrity Family Feud, otherwise that show will be nearly unwatchable. One hour to play a single game is beyond ridiculous.

The bonus round for Press Your Luck started to grow on me during the first season. Why?  Because even if the contestant doesn't take home the big million dollar prize they're still likely to leave with lots of money and some cool prizes that they actually want! It's almost guaranteed that at the end of the show the contestant is going home happy.

Looking at ABC's press site lists that the episode with the casts of RuPaul's Drag Race and The Bold Type that scheduled to air on the 14th will be one game so it could be the new normal for at least some episodes this season.

The bonus round on Press Your Luck last night was definitely super exciting, mainly since she actually had a legitimate shot at getting the million. It's boom or bust in that way, not that exciting if the contestant doesn't get a high amount, very exciting if he/she does.

If you stretch Feud to an hour for a single episode, you may as well have both Bullseye (with the rings arranged like a rainbow for that episode) and the 400 point format with two additional single questions and still have a little time left over for interviews.

Nice to see a new all-time PYL record, and I enjoyed the drama on the final spin of both the main game and the Bonanza! I'd still like to see the answer chyrons though for the question round though. I also thought of the Space X mission when I saw the UFO Whammy appear, but it was ironic since the Whammy didn't take away Space Camp that was won from the main game.

Interesting to have a detective-themed Match Game amid what's going on in the news, though I was certainly shouting at the screen in the second game when she didn't say the most obvious answer.
Now open for tape trading! Please PM me for an offer with a list included.

Funniest Whammy of the night on PYL was the air puppet. (Saw it through ABC On Demand after our ABC affiliate pre-empted it for protest coverage.)
