Well you also have to account for NBA Finals Preemptions on ABC if there is a NBA Finals game on a night where it should be a Summer Fun and Games night

This happens every year (usually on Sunday only).  The NBA Finals schedule usually follows a nice pattern to help with travel between venues.  Not much different than a typical rerun

"If any show, forget sports, Price is Right, [the audience is] the star of the show. Somebody... coming on down and losing their minds, and ... crying, that's the show. The show isn't me, the show isn't necessarily [a] can of soup, how much that is, it's watching people go bananas, and there's going to be some of that missing."

-Drew Carey, interview with Athletic, September 16, 2020

Thanks, TPIRfan for that link.


This is a good thing, in my honest opinion, especially given the fact that someone can win the game upon hitting Add-A-One (granted he or she doesn't land on a Whammy)

ABC has released a press release, of this year’s celebrity guests for The $100,000 Pyramid. Among the celebrities on Pyramid are some old favorites (Kathy Najimy, Kal Penn, Rosie O'Donnell, etc.) from previous seasons and some newbies (Ralph Maccio from The Karate Kid and Cobra Kai, Luke Kirby from The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Alex Moffatt from Saturday Night Live, etc.).

I can't believe no one mentioned that the Beast is back on the Chase.

Speaking of The Chase, it is going by quicker now as ABC released this clip from the Cash Builder round along with lowering the amount of it to $10,000 per correct answer.

Also, they have released some soundbites with the cast on their press site.

I hope for a revival of Hollywood Squares.

^The Hollywood Museum is doing a limited run of Hollywood Squares virtually as a fundraiser, with involvement from Peter Marshall, Tom Bergeron, and others. So if that has success it could possibly lead to a television revival, though I'm not sure what the rights situation is with the show. There's also been hip hop and country versions of the show in recent years on MTV/VH1 and CMT.

Given the success of all the greatest legendary gameshows within their revivals, I would be surprised if it doesn't happen (soon)

I could see ABC doing a revival of the MG/HS hour concept (especially given Buzzr's showing reruns of the original in last few years), only just airing them back to back vs. one show. I think it could work.

Match Game has quietly disappeared from ABC. Not that anyone would ever revive that steaming MGHS mess.

Oh no, that's a shame. Hoping not for good. And no, I didn't mean it as a single show like before, I meant separately. IE: Two completely different shows with no overlap. I wouldn't imagine anyone would dare try the combination now after how spectacularly it bombed back then.
