I love watching GSN on weekday mornings when I'm up then because they show Match Game, Match Game PM, Family Feud (80's version with Ray Combs), $25,000 Pyramid and then two episodes of Super Password. I quit watching at 11am CT because Y&R comes on then.

Late at night starting at 1am CT they have The $100,000 Pyramid, The $25,000 Pyramid, Family Feud ( 70's version with Richard Dawson) and Password (60's version with Allen Ludden).

I tried to get into Regis's Million Dollar Password when it was on CBS but between the horridly dark set and the people having to stand up for the entire game it became to distracting for me.

If they were to ever bring back Password again they need to make it more like Password Plus and Super Password from the late 70's to late 80's. Super Password is my favorite version to watch right now which is hosted by Burt Convy, he hosted a show I remember watching in the Summertime and on days off of school called Win, Loose or Draw when it was aired on the USA Network. I remember watching $25,000/$100,000 Pyramid when USA ran the old episodes of that show too.

I've read that CBS is going to go with the new Pyramid in place of GL, I'm scared of what the set will be like since it will be produced by Michael Davies who also did Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, Power of 10 and some other shows for GSN. I just hate that he seems to be such a fan of the really dark sets with the mood lighting which drive me crazy. I was honestly surprised that he didn't have anything to do with Million Dollar Password that aired on CBS because the set seemed like one he would absolutely love.
