GSN to Preview “The Pyramid” Thursday, August 30th, at 10:00PM ET
This is a very, very sudden schedule change so those eagerly awaiting GSN’s upcoming revival of The Pyramid are going to want to update their TiVo. GSN has announced they are airing a special sneak peek of The Pyramid, the revival of The $25,000 Pyramid, one time only this Thursday, August 30th, at 10:00PM ET. This will follow Beat the Chefs. The special preview of The Pyramid will replace the previously scheduled Steve Harvey episode of Family Feud. There is no word on what specific episode will be seen just yet but we’ll let you know.
Thursday night has become a big night for GSN. Last week the network had their highest rated show ever, The American Bible Challenge, score 1.7 million viewers at 8:00PM ET. However, the ratings for its lead-out, Beat the Chef, tumbled drastically (close to 70%) to 521,000. While that’s still a good number for GSN, it’s hard to ignore that the 70% drop is a terrifying thought and that show’s audience was basically made up of people solely there to see a Bible quiz show. Obviously this Thursday’s rating is no real indication of how The Pyramid will do. It’s just a very smart way to gather some extra eyes for it on the network’s most watched night. However, the amount of extra eyes that will see it relies on how many of the 1.7 million viewers Bible Challenge can retain this week and if the drop off to Beat the Chefs becomes even worse or if it’s leveled off. This was very short notice so this really won’t be known to most people unless they read this. We’ll keep you posted.
