Piano: Liberace, Elton John, John Legend, Jerry Lee Lewis

Mickey Gilley, who recently passed away, is another.

I don't know if the contestant or celebrity from today's era would know who Floyd Cramer or Hargus "Pig" Robbins were, but those are another two famous pianists who maybe would have worked at least during the Dick Clark era. Same with Ronnie Milsap.

Ray Charles would definitely work possibly even today. Same with Billy Joel ... after all, he's the "Piano Man." And then the pianists who were part of the most famous rock band of them all: John Lennon and Paul McCartney.

On the September 18th episode, first half-hour: Great first main game! We have some players here, and some excellent impressions. And, we got both a $50K win and a Mystery 7 win.

I have to question the judging on People You Leave Your Kids With (Children). The contestant said “with a sitter”. The word “with” makes the clue not a person, and the word “with” is part of the subject. I would have buzzed that clue.

I would have said “on a cone” for Places You Find Ice Cream, but “at Baskin-Robbins" was an excellent clue. And how about “keynote” for Kinds of Speakers? 😊

“HER card catalog”! “HER ‘Quiet’ sign”! For Things a Librarian Uses. And my first clue for People Who Drive: “a chauffeur”.

On the second half-hour: “Jell-o (blank) pops.”  “A (blank) tantrum”.

I also would have said “janitors” and “witches” for People Who Use a Broom; adding “sweeping” was clever. “Mr. Spielberg” came first to mind for Men Named Stephen (Steve), though he spells his name with a “v”. 

A $100,000 try! Storm gave some FANTASTIC clues for People Who Predict.

Even though it is a month old bump but I think you might want to start updating that total for the current season, PGS25, because according to TVLine, there will be a festive episode airing on December 6th. Though there is no word yet on when the second half of the current season will be airing.

On the December 6th holiday episode: Jason Alexander is a fantastic player. So calm as well.

“Bae”. Should have gone for the sound-a-like first. And can “CD” be used as a clue for “DVD”? Doesn’t the D stand for disk in both?
 
Great $50,000 win during the first Winner’s Circle round. “An aviary” was excellent for Places with Birds; I thought of “a nest”. 

Mystery “7” win, for the win! 😊

The second Winner’s Circle round was tougher I’d say. For Female Rock Bands (Women), I thought of “Heart” first. Not the best clue. Dixie CHICKS was very good; Abba is not all-female, but I understand the pressure of time. How about “a dirty air conditioner” for Things With Filters? I would not have come up with any Instagram-related clue.
 
“The Red Sox” came to mind first for Things in Boston. And I’m glad the contestant began to include the word “rack” in clues for Places With Towels. I thought his clues there were great.

I cannot agree with the judge simply accepting “Comedians” for Female Comedians (Comics). Why even bother including the word female?? And what about the female rock band subject earlier?

castingpyramid.com anyone? :-)

It was great to see the set decked out for Christmas for the first time since the Donny Osmond era, and I liked the festive atmosphere. It was great to see the show acknowledge Jason Alexander's first appearance, from the John Davidson era of The $100,000 Pyramid from 1991, like they acknowledged Rita Moreno's and Kathy Najimy's previous appearances.

"Aviary" was the perfect clue for the last subject in the first Winner's Circle, and that was a nice $50,000 win to see. It was also great to see a Perfect 21 sealed with the Mystery 7 trip.

However, the judging made me shake my head. First, there was hesitation for accepting the singular "Bow Tie" for "Bow Ties." Next, I was very surprised to see "Comedians" be accepted for "Female Comedians," as Pete did not give the full essence of the category. Especially when refusing to accept "Rock bands" for "Female Rock Bands" was the right call in the first half. Also, "Tires" was not buzzed for being an illegal clue for "Things a Car Does." I really hope the judging improves next season, because this is bringing the fairness of the game into question.

We see the first casting notice of the season tonight. Hopefully the 7 remaining episodes of Season 6 air on ABC in the spring, leading up to Season 7 for the summer of 2023, and, those episodes will help celebrate the show's 50th anniversary.
