AceShowbiz - ABC has renewed two members of its "Fun & Games" block of classic game show revivals, "Celebrity Family Feud" and "The $100,000 Pyramid". The Alphabet has ordered "Feud" for a fourth season, while "Pyramid" is set to return for a third season.
"Returning for season three definitely goes under the category 'Things that are Awesome'," said "Pyramid" host Michael Strahan. "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."
"Feud" host Steve Harvey added, "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. 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."
Produced by FreemantleMedia North America, "Feud" debuted in summer 2015 and averaged a 1.3 Nielsen live-plus-same day rating and 6.6 million viewers in its third season. Meanwhile, "Pyramid", produced by SMAC Entertainment in association with Sony Pictures Television, averaged a 0.9 demo rating in its second season and 4.7 million viewers.
"Feud" and "Pyramid" join "Match Game" in Sunday game night. The Alec Baldwin-hosted show was recently renewed for a third season on ABC.
