A little overdue, but ABC finally has renewed the highly rated summer edition of Celebrity Family Feud, hosted by Steve Harvey, for a second season. The celebrity take on Family Feud will be joined next summer by another redo of a classic game show, $100,000 Pyramid, hosted by Disney-ABC personality Michael Strahan.
Celebrity Family Feud, produced by FremantleMedia North America, averaged a 2.4 Adults 18-49 rating and 9.4 million viewers in Live+7, ranking as the most watched new broadcast summer show this past summer. It was ABC’s highest-rated summer series in two years and also the second most watched among all shows on broadcast last summer. Season 2 will begin taping in March in Los Angeles.
ABC has given a 10-episode order to $100,000 Pyramid, in which celebrities will team up with players from across the country to give and guess clues in a word-association game.
“Growing up, Pyramid was one of my favorite shows to watch with my family,” said Michael Strahan. “I’m looking forward to bringing it back for the new generation to enjoy as well!”
$100,000 Pyramid, produced by SMAC Entertainment in association with Sony Pictures Television, will be taped in New York where Strahan is based, working on Live! with Kelly & Michael and Good Morning America. Strahan, Constance Schwartz and Vin Rubino executive produce.
