CBS Eyes ‘$25,000 Pyramid’ for ‘Light’ Slot

Apr 2, 2009  •  Post A Comment

A new version of “The $25,000 Pyramid” from Sony and producer Michael Davies (“Who Wants to Be a Millionaire”) is one of the projects CBS is considering as a replacement for “Guiding Light,” TelevisionWeek reports. Neither Sony nor CBS would comment. However, two people familiar with the situation said Mr. Davies and Sony have come up with a reworking of the classic “Pyramid” game show format designed to fit into CBS’ daytime lineup. The new take likely would be an hour in order to fill the timeslot vacated by “Guiding Light,” which ends its CBS run in September. While “Pyramid” is a contender to replace “Light,” it’s not CBS’ only option. The network is said to be considering contenders produced in-house, including talk shows.
