Storyline

More than a decade after its last run ended, "Pyramid" saw new life as a syndicated entry hosted by one-time teen heartthrob Donny Osmond. The basic premise was identical to the 1973 classic word association game: Two teams of two (a contestant and a celebrity partner) each try to convey words and/or phrases in any one of six categories. This time, they had just 20 seconds to guess six words correctly. As before the cluegiver could do anything short of saying the word itself to get his/her partner to say the word; the word can be passed on (and scored if they thought of it later), but if the cluegiver blurts out the essence of the word, the word is thrown out and the contestant can't score on it. One of the categories hid a "Super Six" card, which gave the contestant a bonus prize if all six words were guessed. Three go-arounds were played (the celebrity giving the clues the first time, the contestant the next time through and a choice of cluegivers in the final round). The contestant...

Trivia

During the first season, original Pyramid host Dick Clark was a guest player along with game show queen Betty White during a week, called the "Dick Clark Challenge". It was the first time Dick was on the show since 1988 and the first time he was a Pyramid player since 1978. While Clark hosted the daytime version back then, he was a frequent player on the syndicated version of the '70s with Bill Cullen as host. See more »

At least we don't have Dick
17 February 2003 | by See all my reviews

Being a huge fan of the original "Pyramid" the only down to the show at times was Mr.Anal retentive Dick Clark. (I didn't hate the guy but there were times that seemed like he had left his personality at home) The opening moments of the new "Pyramid" had me laughing. Donny Osmond as the host? Get outta here! I take it back. Osmond is very good and and his light touch of humor works as well (something Clark rarely had). What would really spark things up is to have the tournament of champions (like the $100,000 Pyramid) play for a million bucks. Now thats entertainment!
