Big Stars Love TV So Much, They’re Even Hosting Game Shows Now
Remember when big-name stars didn’t want to do TV? Now they’re even clamoring for jobs as game show hosts.

Alec Baldwin (ABC’s “Match Game”), Taye Diggs (Fox’s “Hypnotize Me”), Jane Lynch (NBC’s “Celebrity Game Night”) and Anthony Anderson (ABC’s “To Tell the Truth”) are just some of the actors who now front major primetime game shows, in addition to their regular scripted work.

“You look at game shows from the 1970s and 1980s, they were somewhat cheesy,” Anderson said. “It’s different now. It’s a lot classier. It’s cool.”

Wayne Brady, who has hosted a “Let’s Make a Deal” revival for CBS since 2009, joked that “being a game show host was very much akin to being a local affiliate weatherman – and no offense to local affiliate weathermen, but there’s a stereotype.”

ABC Is Reviving Game-Show Classic $100,000 Pyramid

  • Vulture
File this under the category of Things That Are Awesome: ABC and producer Sony Pictures Television are reviving The $100,000 Pyramid, bringing back the iconic 1970s and '80s game show as a weekly prime-time series. Vulture has learned that former NFL superstar Michael Strahan (Live! With Kelly and Michael) will serve as host of the reincarnated classic, which is expected to get a ten-episode run on ABC this summer. Strahan steps into the shoes of late broadcasting legend Dick Clark, who hosted most incarnations of Pyramid during its peak (from 1973 until 1978). Save for a few specials (including 1979’s All-Star Junior Pyramid), Pyramid has heretofore always aired either in daytime, on cable, or as an early-evening syndicated show. The 2016 model will be the first time Pyramid has aired as a regular prime-time network show. Despite the time-slot upgrade, the basic format of the show is expected to remain the
