ABC'S 'SUNDAY FUN & GAMES' LINEUP TO RETURN FOLLOWING A SUMMER OF RATINGS SUCCESS

'Celebrity Family Feud,' 'The $100,000 Pyramid' and 'To Tell the Truth' Receive Additional Season Pickups

ABC has announced green lights for its "Sunday Fun & Games" programming block: "Celebrity Family Feud" for its fifth season, and "The $100,000 Pyramid" and "To Tell the Truth" for their fourth seasons. ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey made the announcement today at the network's Television Critics Association press tour. The programming block has fueled many ratings victories for the network, which has ranked as the No. 1 broadcaster on each week the block has aired this summer among Adults 18-49.

Hosted by television personality and best-selling author Steve Harvey, "Celebrity Family Feud" features celebrity families and their immediate family members or their extended TV families, competing against each other to have fun and win money for charity. Its fourth season highlights included celebrity family teams such as Team Kardashian vs. Team West, Stephen Curry vs. Chris Paul, Team Ice-T & Coco vs. Vivica A. Fox, Amber Riley vs. Tori Spelling & Dean McDermott, "Grey's Anatomy" vs. "Station 19," Inside the NBA vs. MLB All-Stars, and Laurie Hernandez vs. Shawn Johnson, among others.

ABC's "Celebrity Family Feud" ranks as the No. 1 series in Sunday's 8 p.m. hour this summer in Total Viewers (6.7 million). "Celebrity Family Feud" stands as Sunday's No. 2 series on the broadcast networks this summer among Adults 18-49 (1.3/6) and as the night's 2nd most-watched summertime broadcast series.

Pop-culture phenomenon "The $100,000 Pyramid" is back and better than ever. Hosted by "Good Morning America"'s Michael Strahan, the series features a cast of all-star celebrities who take center stage and partner with contestants from across the country with hopes of making it to the winner's circle and the ultimate prize of $100,000. "The $100,000 Pyramid" airs Sundays on The ABC Television Network.

ABC's "The $100,000 Pyramid" ranks as the No. 1 series in Sunday's 9 o'clock hour this summer among Total Viewers (5.4 million) and Adults 18-49 (1.0/4). "The $100,000 Pyramid" is growing over its prior season average by 10% in Total Viewers and 11% among Adults 18-49.

Hosted by the star of ABC's hit comedy "black-ish," Anthony Anderson, "To Tell the Truth" is a funny reimagination of the beloved game show that first aired in 1956. This version takes the excitement to another level, featuring prominent pop-culture icons. Anderson's mother, Mama Doris, is also part of the fun, offering her unique commentary, wit and banter.

In each round, the panel is presented with three people who all claim to be the same person with the same incredible talent, job or achievement. One is sworn to tell the truth while the other two use every trick they can to deceive the panel. The panel of celebrities has a chance to grill each participant before taking turns deciding who they think is telling the truth.

ABC's "To Tell the Truth" ranks as the No. 1 broadcast series in Sunday's 10 o'clock hour among Adults 18-34, Men 18-34 and Men 18-49. "To Tell the Truth" is growing over its prior season average by 8% in Total Viewers.

"Celebrity Family Feud" is produced by FremantleMedia North America and is taped in front of a live audience in Los Angeles, California. Gaby Johnston and Jennifer Mullin are executive producers.

"The $100,000 Pyramid" is produced by SMAC Entertainment in association with Sony Pictures Television and taped in front of a live studio audience in New York. "The $100,000 Pyramid" is executive produced by Michael Strahan, Constance Schwartz and Vin Rubino.
