ABC has picked up all four of its retro game show revivals for another season: “Match Game,” “$100,000 Pyramid,” “Celebrity Family Feud,” and “To Tell the Truth,” entertainment president Channing Dungey announced at the network’s TCA day Thursday.
“We’re thrilled by the performance of each of our game shows and the reception they received from the fans,” Dungey said. “The success of these shows is due in large part to the strength of our hosts, Steve Harvey, Michael Strahan, Alec Baldwin, and Anthony Anderson.”
The “Sunday Fun & Games” block, consisting of “Feud,” “Pyramid,” and “Match Game,” has been a bright spot for the rebuilding Alphabet this summer. “Celebrity Family Feud,” hosted by Harvey, is averaging a 1.5 in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demo in live-same-day ratings, and pulling in an average total audience of 7.41 million.
“$100,000 Pyramid,” hosted by Strahan, is averaging a 1.4 in the demo and 7.03 million total viewers. “Match Game,” hosted by Baldwin, is averaging a 1.2 demo and 5.76 million same-day viewers.
“To Tell the Truth,” hosted by “Black-ish” star Anderson, finished its initial six-episode run in July with a 1.0 same-day average in the demo and 4.7 million viewers.
The hosts will remain the same for the next seasons. Critical and fan response has been generally favorable for all four series, three of which (excluding “Pyramid”) are produced by FremantleMedia North America.
