ABC has renewed its summer game shows The $100,000 Pyramid, Match Game and To Tell the Truth for their fifth seasons, Card Sharks and Press Your Luck for their second seasons and Celebrity Family Feud for a sixth season. They join previously announced Holey Moley, which is returning for a second season.
All the shows are part of ABC’s Summer Fun & Games lineup, which helped propel the network to the No. 1 network of the summer among Adults 18-49 (1.0/5 – tie with NBC), marking the first time the Net ranked No. 1 during the summer in 24 years. In addition, ABC finished as the summer’s No. 1 network with Adults 18-34 and among key female demos (W18-34/W18-49).
“Summer has become synonymous with ABC’s ‘Fun & Games’ brand,” said Rob Mills, senior vice president, Alternative Series, Specials and Late Night, ABC Entertainment. “To have these shows return is a testament to their strength, and the excitement and fun they bring each week. These are legit star-studded shows that celebrate everything we love about the spirit of competition. Thanks to them and ‘The Bachelorette,’ we dominated summer and are doubling down on next year.”
