'Celebrity Family Feud' Among 3 ABC Game Show Renewals
ABC is keeping its Sunday block as is.
The Disney-owned broadcaster has handed out renewals to all three of its summer Sunday game shows. Celebrity Family Feud (season five), The $100,000 Pyramid and To Tell the Truth (both for season four) will all return, keeping ABC's so-called "Sunday Fun & Games" programming block around for summer 2019.
ABC notes that the block has helped keep the network at No. 1 each week among the advertiser-coveted adults 18-49 demographic during their runs.
Steve Harvey will return as host for Feud, which ranks as the No. 1 series in its Sundays at 8 p.m. slot this summer among total viewers, with 6.7 million overall, and No. 2 among 18-49 (1.3).
Pyramid, hosted by GMA's Michael Strahan is tops at 9 p.m. among total viewers (5.4 million) and the key demo (1.0).
Truth, which will see Black-ish star Anthony Anderson return as host, tops the night at 10 among adults 18-34 and is up 8 percent year over year among total viewers.
ABC on Tuesday also announced plans for Mickey's 90th Spectacular, a two-hour primetime event to celebrate 90 years of Mickey Mouse. The special, which will be produced and directed by Don Mischer, will air Sunday, Nov. 4, at 8 p.m. on ABC.
