Pyramid is an American game show that was created by Bob Stewart and was based on a creation that was pitched to Mark Goodson and Bill Todman but was rejected. It premiered on CBS on March 26, 1973 as The $10,000 Pyramid and became a ratings success for the network, even though the show would be canceled a year later, it would have numerous incarnations throughout the years[1] and the current version titled The $100,000 Pyramid has been airing on ABC since 2016. The show would be hosted by popular radio personality Dick Clark (who did American Bandstand at the time) and the show would be Clark's best known hosting gig. Many of the show's incarnations have been reran in the years since and have many surviving episodes, the show's first seven years are not so lucky.

CBS[edit | edit source]

On March 26, 1973, the show premiered as The $10,000 Pyramid on CBS. The premise was two teams of one civilian and one celebrity take turns in describing various words in six categories. They must not use any part of the word and if they do, the word gets thrown out. The team with the most points goes on to the winner's circle. The winner's circle is similar to the main game accept one member of the team with the other member facing away from the pyramid. The person facing the pyramid must provide a list of things that fit the shown subject, if the person facing away from the pyramid guesses correctly they win a dollar amount that the subject hides. They have 60 seconds to get all six subjects and if they succeed the civilian wins the $10,000. If they fail, they win the money they earn based on how many subject they covered.

$25,000 Pyramid (1974-1978)[edit | edit source]

In September 1974, a primetime syndicated version of the show called The $25,000 Pyramid hosted by game show host veteran Bill Cullen premiered with added bonuses to the main game, but was mostly the same as the daytime version. This version of the show was syndicated by Viacom Enterprises and would be the first version of the show to be syndicated as many of the show's later incarnations aired in syndication. 150 episodes were taped in the span of four years with six shows a day being recorded.

Availability[edit | edit source]

Only a hand full of the first eight years of the show exist due to episodes being wiped as it was common practice at Bob Stewart Productions. Game Show Network only reran the show from 1998 to 2003 and for a short time in 2006 and have never reran the old episodes since. 53 of the missing episodes exist through audio recordings by the website Archival Television Audio, Inc., which are unavailable to the public.[3][4][5] While the daytime version may never be seen again, the syndicated version's episodes are rumored to exist entirely but has not been reran on Game Show Network as this version was owned by the distributor Viacom.[6] The only time this version has been reran, was in the mid-1980s on CBN (now known as Freeform).[7] In November 2020, The Bill Cullen Archive revealed that Game Show Network tried to acquire the tapes of the syndicated version for reruns but the tapes vanished.[8] To this day, the whereabouts of the $25,000 Pyramid tapes are unknown.
