A batch of shows that have been pulling in solid ratings for ABC received a bulk renewal from the network. The four shows are all game shows, with ABC today announcing renewals for “Celebrity Family Feud,” “The $100,000 Pyramid,” “Match Game” and “To Tell the Truth.”

Channing Dungey, president, ABC Entertainment, commented in the announcement: “We’re thrilled by the performance of each of our game shows and the reception they received from the fans. The success of these shows is due in large part to the strength of our hosts, Steve Harvey, Michael Strahan, Alec Baldwin and Anthony Anderson.”

“Celebrity Family Feud,” hosted by Harvey, has been averaging 8.2 million total viewers and a 1.7 rating/7 share in adults 18-49 this summer. “The $100,000 Pyramid,” hosted by Strahan, is averaging 7.7 million total viewers and a 1.6 rating/6 share in adults 18-49 this summer, the announcement notes.

“Match Game,” with Baldwin hosting, averages 6.5 million total viewers and a 1.4/5 in 18-49, while the Anderson-hosted “To Tell the Truth” delivered 5.2 million total viewers and a 1.2/4 in 18-49.

  1. As long as on “To Tell The Truth” they get rid of the host’s mother being in the audience and giving her opinion of the performances—I’d watch the show. Otherwise–I’ll find something else to watch.
