Let the games begin! ABC has gone all in with Sunday Fun & Games, a three-hour block of game shows that includes survey-driven Celebrity Family Feud, word-association challenge The $100,000 Pyramid and star-studded fill-in-the-blank competition Match Game. “Game shows are having this big primetime comeback because you can sit with your kids and laugh with each other,” says Michael Strahan, who hosts the Pyramid reboot. “It’s safe, it’s fun and it’s enjoyable.” Strahan, Celebrity Family Feud host Steve Harvey and Match Game emcee Alec Baldwin break down ABC’s winning lineup in this week’s issue of TV Guide Magazine.
