Dare I say it, could we see a return of Pyramid, and maybe, to pull one out of left field: High Rollers?? I kinda think HR may have that sorta Vegas appeal that's exploded in popularity over the last decade. Same could apply to TJW or (ack-hem) Card Sharks...

It may be too soon for "Pyramid" to come back.

I've long been in favor of doing "Gambit" and "HR" as an interconnected block--and Friedman's familiar with both shows from his days at H-Q--but the statement for now is that one of the shows will be a new format, which makes my idea unlikely for now.

And I may be wrong, but I've believed that Sony did acquire the "TJW" format, they only own the "TTD" programs made by B&E in the 70s and 80s and that NBC Universal owns the "TTD" format now.

For a while in 1981, you could get both during a day's viewing of Las Vegas Gambit.
As for this proposed block for the season after next, it's like other game show-related announcements for network or syndicated television (remember all that stuff that was claimed to be in development due to the quiz show comeback of 1999-2000?) and alleged city renovation projects and sports teams who claim "this is the year" and certain web sites in the world of the internet that repeatedly promise updates and never get them: I'll believe it when I see it. Then and only then, the excitement will commence.

Hmmm... prime time game shows... one classic, one new....

Based off the assumption it will be like the Jeopardy! / Monopoly hour, let's think about board games....

Aha!  

I predict:

7:00-7:30 Celebrity Jeopardy! Masters

7:30-8:00 The $1 Million Ants in the Pants / Cootie Challenge

1.  Who said anything about "prime time?"
2.  Your attempt to make a "funi" is sad.

Oh.  Please.  No.[/quote]
I'm not saying I'd want Treasure Hunt to return but given the current big thing in games is Deal or No Deal, I wouldn't be surprised if Sony went with an existing, similar format.

Me?  I'd love to see Tic Tac Dough return.

Your retort is pathetic.  If you can't say anything nice, stick your head between your legs.

No, what was pathetic was your attempt at "humor".

Trying to steer this thing back on track again.......

Like some of you, I would love to see a revival of either TJW or TTD. I'm not going to discuss how I think the show should be laid out, I would just like to see something that stays somewhat faithful to the original, but have some new twists as well.

Is it time to be welcomed back to the game "where knowledge is king and lady luck is queen" ?

Nah, It's time to bring back a format that (as we all know) is a game of definitions!!!

I'm going with the return of "Joker" myself, since it would make a little sense of capturing the magic of the card games and such.

I came close to saying "Chain Reaction", but seeing how that'll more than likely going to GSN (hopefully), we might as well wait it out and see what happens in either case.

Okay, how about this...
1. Why would you think it's a primetime block?  Odds are probably that it isn't, unless it's going to go on the new network being created to counter the loss of UPN/WB.
2. The $1 Million Ants in the Pants / Cootie Challenge makes no sense.  Were you trying to be funny?  If you were, it really wasn't.

Um. Monopoly is a board game. Ants In The Pants and Cootie are board games. I got the joke. I didn't laugh, but I got the joke. :)
