So during the 20-21 season ABC  by itself will air 13 game shows!

Of the ten that aired so far Card Sharks was the lowest rated in both Total audience and 18-49.

Celebrity Wheel of Fortune, Supermarket Sweep, who wants to be a Millionaire, and Match Game are left off renewals so far.

Wheel and Sweep based on ratings seem sure things probably in season and not summer.    Again if Card Sharks is renewed the last two seem likely.   Of course there could be a problem designing a new set to socially distance the 6 Celebrities on Match Game.

Surprised they are bringing back Teh Hustler. Much as I love CraigyFerg, he didn't really make up for there not being a whole lot of game there.

Woo-hoo, Pyramid's back. Yes!! I agree with Chuck that there might be a social distancing issue with Match Game. So The Hustler got renewed too. For game show fans, there's good news tonight.

I mentioned this before, but to me it's just not a fun game as an observer. It seems like it would be a dope party game, but as a game show not so much.

Fox also announced its summer plans today ...

Of note ...

-- Season 2 of "Mental Samurai" has a two-hour premiere on May 25, then runs Tuesdays after "LEGO Masters"
-- Season 4 of "Beat Shazam," which has been in the Fox vault for more than a year (believe this was recorded pre-pandemic), premiers June 3.

Also, Joel McHale ("Card Sharks") pulls a Dick Clark and hosts two prime time shows on two networks at the same time with a cooking competition show that may ask the question -- what if Quibi's "Dishmantled" was an hour in length instead of five minutes?

They might have to use an MG2 setting for the panel, oddly enough.  (I commented the new, separate CFF podiums already looked kinda like Just Men! and its setup)

EDITS:

Maybe even go back to 1998 and have only five panelists? 

Does PYL separate the contestant podiums like Jeopardy! does?  Or extend it like Wheel?

And Pyramid....plexiglass between the main game desks and Winner's Circle?

I bought a Sony Pictures Television t-shirt.  I use it to cover up whatever shirt I was wearing before.

Don't didn't get picked up, so there won't be a Season 2...

Doesn't surprise me; while it was quite a goofy show, it was a tough pill to swallow.

To paraphrase Craig Ferguson from his former late night show, "It's a great day for game show fans in America."

Any news on which shows are looking for new contestants, or are they using last year's contestant pools?  Have yet to see new info on the websites.

PYL and The Hustler are actively searching. Celebrity Dating Game already did its contestant call. Not sure on the rest, though.

I believe the other shows are either already in the can or (in the case of The Chase) taping currently.

I know someone who had an audition for The Chase last weekend, so if they're already taping that's a very quick turnaround from casting for a show that only needs 36-ish(?) contestants per season. I might have expected another week or two more for people to book their travel and accommodations, at a minimum.
