'Celebrity Family Feud,' '$100,000 Pyramid' Renewed at ABC
ABC is bringing back its Sunday game night.
The Disney-owned network has renewed Celebrity Family Feud and The $100,000 Pyramid for their fourth and third seasons, respectively.
The announcement was made Sunday during ABC's portion of the Television Critics Association's summer press tour.
Both series are part of ABC's Sunday night branded Fun and Games block. Pyramid, hosted by Michael Strahan, has been a consistent performer in its 10 p.m. slot.
"Returning for season three definitely goes under the category ‘Things that are Awesome,’” Strahan said. “It has been such an honor continuing the legacy of the legendary Dick Clark as host of Pyramid. Looking forward to another season of giving away ABC’s money.”
Celebrity Family Feud opens the Sunday block at 8 p.m. and ranks as the most-watched show in the time slot this summer.
"The politically correct reason that Celebrity Family Feud has struck a chord is because it’s a great show where people can play along at home and everyone can join in on the fun," host Steve Harvey said. "The true reason it’s a success is because they went and got me to host. It’s been a blessing to host this show, I’m one of those people who loves what they’re doing.”
Both shows join the previously announced third season of the Alec Baldwin-hosted Match Game as ABC has had success with its retro game shows across the schedule. Still to be determined is the fate of Harvey-hosted Funderdome, which currently airs Sundays at 9 p.m. between Family Feud and Pyramid.
