This seems strange to me, since there was a lot of anticipation for The Pyramid and by most accounts it's a decent enough adaptation of the game. I really enjoy it and find Mike Richards to be an enjoyable host (then again, I really liked him on Beauty and the Geek as well). So why aren't the ratings reflecting this?
One theory is that American Bible Challenge is bringing in an audience that doesn't normally watch GSN (which is a good thing - bringing in new eyeballs is always a plus), but since they're tuning in to see that show, they're not necessarily going to stick around for Pyramid. Beat the Chefs wasn't exactly a great match either, but that's another story. Could it be as simple as a scheduling issue? I don't know.
Whatever the reason for the declining viewership, the show is in danger of not being renewed for another season. That's really a shame, because this kind of thing is what GSN is all about, and even the die-hard GSN fans (and critics) should be pleased with the show.
So let's hear it - do you think The Pyramid will/should be renewed for a second season? Are you enjoying the show? And if it does come back, are there any changes you would make?
