CBS Possibly to Replace Guiding Light With Update of $25,000 Pyramid?

Publish date:

The news just keeps getting better and better soap fans.TV Week is reporting an updated version of the $25,000 Pyramid is a contender for replacing Guiding Light this September.


A new version of "The $25,000 Pyramid" from Sony and producer Michael Davies ("Who Wants to Be a Millionaire") is one of the projects CBS is considering as a replacement for "Guiding Light."

Neither Sony nor CBS would comment. However, two people familiar with the situation said Mr. Davies and Sony have come up with a reworking of the classic "Pyramid" game show format designed to fit into CBS' daytime lineup.

The new take likely would be an hour in order to fill the timeslot vacated by "Guiding Light," which ends its CBS run in September.
