I'm sure you all remember this past summer, when we were all speculating on what would replace Guiding Light, which CBS had also canceled. As it turned out, Let's Make a Deal took over the one-hour time slot and has been doing fairly well. I know many of you aren't fans, but I have to admit that I enjoy the show. It had a bit of a rough start, but it's really been entertaining lately. The other two game shows that were considered at the time were revivals of The Dating Game, which didn't excite many of us, and of course, the $1,000,000 Pyramid, which most of us had pinned our hopes on.
With another soap opera going down the tubes, will we get another game show in daytime? More importantly, will Pyramid be the front-runner? Anything could happen of course - it could be replaced by a talk show or local news, for example. But how exciting is it to speculate on this one? Also consider the fact that Oprah is bidding farewell soon, so there's lots of space for new games to pop up.
Oh, and CBS? If hosting was the issue with Pyramid, might I suggest you give Pat Kiernan a shot?
