EW.com has an item tonight that CBS is looking at a game show option to replace As the World Turns when it goes off the air in September, and it looks like a remake of $1o,000 Pyramid is the front runner!
The CBS network confirmed that it plans to shoot a new pilot for Pyramid, which was originally considered as a replacement for Guiding Light until the network decided to go with a revamped Let’s Make a Deal. Rumor has it they may also shoot a pilot for Password, which first aired in 1961 and was hosted by Allen Ludden.
Apparently, CBS feels the decision to replace Guiding Light with Let’s Make a Deal hosted by Wayne Brady was a great move. Since now the game show is averaging 2.43 million viewers, up 12 percent from what Guiding Light was attracting when it went off the air.
