ABC will be keeping its Sunday night game show lineup going next year.
Announced this morning by the network, “Celebrity Family Feud,” “The $100,000 Pyramid,” and “To Tell the Truth” have all been renewed for their respective fifth and fourth seasons. The shows will return at their same Sunday night time slots in summer 2019.
These renewals come as little surprise, as all three have been instrumental in keeping ABC’s Sunday ratings strong throughout the summer. The three shows have kept ABC above all of the other Big 4 networks in the adults 18-49 demographic every week they’ve been on this summer, and each of the shows are usually at the top of their respective time slots as well, unless directly competing with another ratings giant like “Big Brother.”
Steve Harvey is set to return as the host of “Celebrity Family Feud” again, which has been averaging a 1.2 live + same day rating throughout its current season with 6.40 million viewers – on par with its previous season’s average.
The Anthony Anderson-hosted “To Tell the Truth” has also stayed even with a 0.8 L+SD average, while the Michael Strahan-hosted “$100,000 Pyramid,” has actually topped the 0.8 average of its previous season with a 0.9 this year and 5.12 million viewers.
“Celebrity Family Feud” currently ranks as this summer’s No. 1 Sunday night show @ 8 p.m. in total viewers, just behind “Big Brother” (1.4) in adults 18-49. But without the same competition in their respective time slots, both “The $100,000 Pyramid” and “To Tell the Truth” rank as the summer’s No. 1 Sunday night 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. shows in both adults 18-49 and total viewers.
