This past week on Pyramid they had Nipsey Russell and Audrey Landers and the premiere of the new bell that sounds for correct answers. It's lower pitched that the school teacher's desk bell they had been using.

Zap2It shows GSN starting what's apparently a new cycle of $25,000 Pyramid this week. Their listings show them continuing with the Deborah Adair/Terry Lester week they left off at in March. If it's another 200 episodes, that would take us well into April 1984, meaning most of this bunch hasn't been seen since the USA days.

I also just noticed it's been exactly one year since the last cycle started airing. These leases have been for two years in the past, so it's interesting that they're moving on after just one year this time.

Maybe this time my electricity will remain on for the premiere.  The last 2 times I missed it.  :-[

Thanks for the heads-up. I don't think I would've known otherwise.

That's what the listings indicated.

Just checked the DVR and you are correct.  Thanks for the heads up!

Starting today (6/23), they're airing the Michael J Fox week. He won $10K for his partner in his first try in the Winners Circle. Not bad.

So, I'm not watching nor recording Pyramid as often as I should, but I happened to watch on 7/4 and had a question as to what GSN did. The first episode aired was Richard Kline and Linda Kelsey, which Dick identifies as airing on 7/4, a Monday. The next episode that airs features Patty Duke-Astin and John Moschitta Jr., which Dick identifies as a Friday. I assume Duke-Astin/Moschitta was what was airing in the normal rotation and the Kline/Kelsey episode was specifically chosen by GSN. Dick's comments mean Kline/Kelsey was 7/4/83. How far removed from the rotation would that make it?

BTW, great 1st WC in the 7/4 episode. Kline and partner make it up in 30 seconds.
Me: Of all of the game shows you've hosted besides Jeopardy!, like High Rollers or Classic Concentration, which is your favorite?
Alex Trebek: I'd have to say To Tell The Truth, because it was the first time in my career that I got to sit down while I was hosting.

Three weeks prior to where they were. Duke/Moschitta was 7/25-29/83. This means if nothing is skipped, Tony Danza's diva fit sole California week will be aired starting this week.

Does Dick reference the Billy Crystal record setter afterward? I remember watching a pretty fast WC win back when the reruns aired on USA, and I seem to remember it being during the first season. I was also bummed they didn't have the 20K clip on standby.

Now celebrating his 21st season on GSF!

He does. He says at first "twenty-something seconds" before looking offstage and being incorrectly told "twenty-eight seconds." Though I'm not faulting some producer offstage for being two seconds off on a record they probably hadn't thought about in years.

In case anyone's curious, I've worked out that, if there are no further skips, the second show on July 28 will be 9/19/83, which is notable as the first one in this incarnation that had an opening montage.
