The $100,000 Pyramid (lost 22-minute versions of ABC revival of Bob Stewart game show; 2020)
The $100,000 Pyramid is a revival of the American game show Pyramid that premiered on ABC on June 26th, 2016, and is hosted by Good Morning America anchor Michael Strahan. This version of the show ran for 44-minutes (with two games played back to back) and is the third revival of a classic game show on ABC to run for 44 minutes with two games played back to back, the others being Celebrity Family Feud and Match Game that premiered in 2015 and 2016 respectively. As of 2022, the show is still airing new episodes on ABC.
The Canadian cable channel GameTV started rerunning this version on January 9th, 2020. Unlike other reruns of this version where the original 44-minute version is used, GameTV split the original episode into two 22 minute episodes, since two games were played back to back. Although the original 44-minute episode was split into two 22-minute episodes, they aired back to back on Thursday nights. The ending of the first game in the original airings have Strahan saying that the show will continue and the program transitions into the next game, but in the GameTV airings, Strahan says farewell to the home viewer that hasn't been since in the original ABC airings or any rerun of this version. The channel's website lists the show's first, second and third seasons that aired on GameTV, meaning episodes from 2016 to 2018 have 22-minute variants and extended the episode count from 37 to 74. By October 16th, 2020, the version was now being reran on weeknights. The show was removed from the schedule sometime in late-2020 and nothing from the 22-minute versions have surfaced online.
