IIRC, it was around this same time, that Pyramid, and all other daytime game shows, began showing a "Copyright" year in the closing credits, and I've started to wonder if there is some relevancy to this.  The weekly syndicated versions always showed a "Copyright," caption AFAIK.

I assume that would have been due to the Copyright Act of 1976 going into effect on January 1, 1978.

If I lived in the 1970's, and I had a U-Matic tape machine, I'd tape ALL the episodes of the New York era of Pyramid from $10K to $50K.
Our middle school had a U-Matic tape machine back in the mid-1970s (I used it as part of an extracurricular class on filmmaking); I don't know if it could record in color (all we ever recorded was from a black-and-white video camera), but I do know that it had the old-school VHF and UHF dials, so programming it to record specific shows was impossible.  The closest you could come was to set it to one channel, plug it into one of those on/off timers that plugs into the wall, and then turn it on and set it to record, so it would start recording at the appropriate time.
