The new $100,000 Pyramid will premiere on ABC this Sunday night, and Michael Strahan talked about the revival of the series in a new interview with TV Insider. He is the host of the new version of the popular game show.
Why is now the right time to bring back this beloved game show? He said the following:
“What’s old is new again! It’s such a perfect format for a show, and it’s so easy to pick up on that everybody can relate to it. People love to see celebrities and contestants become a team where they have to work together and not just for themselves. Once you start watching it, it’s very addictive.”
On the series, viewers will see celebrities involved, and he said that people should really watch Rosie O’Donnell and Kathy Najimy for some great play.
Michael Strahan has just come off his hosting stint on Live! The host mentioned his former series when he spoke about preparing to host $100,000 Pyramid. He said the following:
“I watched him and he’s so great at it; I don’t know if you can copy him. I watched more to see the tone of the show. Just like with everything, you’ve just got to be yourself. When I took over for Regis Philbin at Live!, he was a very iconic figure. Here’s somebody who built that show. Now I think to myself, “Thank goodness I didn’t kill the show that Regis built!” But at the time, I went in and said, ‘Hey, have fun with it, enjoy it, be in the moment.’”
