Question about "Match Game" and $100,000 Pyramid"

What time of year do each air? "Match Game" appears so randomly. And I haven't seen "Pyramid" air in months. Thanks!

Match Game appears to fill programming gaps. Pyramid is a summer show.

I have my DVR set for Match Game, and yes, it does seem to pop up randomly...although in stretches of six to eight weeks in a row.

What surprised me is how FAR in advance these shows are taped. We all know TV shows get filmed months before they air, but the recent Match Games were shot over a YEAR ago. I remember Kevin Smith saying he was going to be on an episode last February (of 2018) and thought I missed it...it aired just recently. Then Adam Carolla was talking on his podcast about how his Match Game episode took over a year to air.

The next game show being added to the line up is Press Your Luck but they may be going with Whammy as the title similar to the version on game Show Net a decade or so ago.

Card Sharks as well.

Whammy was an awful knock-off.

ABC is pretty true to the original versions so I would expect to see it more like the original version.

We hated card sharks.
Might have been the most boring game show ever.

Liked Whammy. Thought it was really funny with the Super Whammys. The set was pretty bad though looked like the filmed that show without lighting.

The Strahan Pyramid got me recording the old Dick Clark pyramids on GSN to watch before work in the morning while I ate breakfast. Re-watching the Dick Clark show just made me despise the Strahan update. The update is just an obnoxious show.
