CBS Climbs Back Up Pyramid

In an effort to show Hollywood that movies aren't the only medium that can revive long-forgotten franchises, CBS has ordered a pilot for Pyramid, the game show that made winning $10,000 exciting. The network hopes the game show will replace As the World Turns, which will stop turning in September. This is the second time in two years that CBS has looked to Pyramid to replace daytime programming. Last year Wayne Brady's Let's Make a Deal beat it out in the race to replace Guiding Light. But there was a clear problem with the 2009 pilot, which was called The $1,000,000 Pyramid, that can be fixed by the addition of zeros. If people were going up for a one-billion-dollar prize, this might even reach DVR status. [HR]
