ABC Summer Fun and Games: To Tell the Truth, I Can't Match the Whammy Card

Well it's another Summer and ABC has decided to give a modern upgrade to some old game show classics. There's still $100,000 Pyramid, To Tell The Truth, and Celebrity Family Feud but now they're adding Two more classics but with higher stakes at play with Card Sharks (Hosted by Joel McHale) and Press Your Luck (Hosted by Elizabeth Banks) with another Match Game run following up the two aforementioned shows on Tuesdays. (No Gong Show it seems however)

Really excited for the two new ones because I used to watch them both on Game Show Network, both shows should be interesting because they're offering the highest prize funds yet as Card Sharks will be offering up $640,000 for it's top prize and you can even win $1,000,000 on PYL if you win the main game with a Deal or No Deal esque Bonus Round . The ads for both look great so far as they're both modern takes, Card Shark's set looks very creative with a Vegas theme and PYL's set looks like it's a modern upgrade on the 80s set, I wish they used the Todd Newton era Whammies though.

EDIT: I forgot the New show Holey Moley, which looks like a cross of Wipeout and Mini Golf

We need a new version of Hollywood Squares. It's been fifteen years since the last incarnation. Heck, bring back Gilbert Gottfried just to recreate this classic episode.

Actually, there's a new one that's been in production for the last decade.

The first couple years were pretty decent, but I've watched it and it's a bastardization of the format really much like Harvey's Feud run because it focuses on gags rather than the game itself.

I'm sure Nashville Squares will be as well since it'll be under the Viacom umbrella like Hip Hop Squares is

Press Your Luck kept the '80s theme song, but added a bit of bass to kinda hide the trademark synth. And the very first Whammy ever was a Bachelor joke.

The new bonus round suuucks. It's not even Deal Or No Deal-esque, it's just straight Deal or No Deal in which you confer with your loved ones and cry and shit before you decide to enter the next round and risk everything you won. It's only there to stretch the show to an hour when they just as easily could have done two episodes like literally ALL of the other ABC game shows do.

Card Sharks is still as boring as I remember, but they did make a number of adjustments, including a male dealer (highlighted by a gay contestant) and giant poker chips to go with the giant playing cards. Joel McHale feels wrong for the hosting role, like ABC wanted to recapture Alec Baldwin's Match Game snark, but without that same drive for humor.

The actual PYL premiere had a heck of an ending. I honestly have never seen anyone lose the game on a passed spin whammy spin before too. I like the bonus round but I feel like the prize should be revealed before the contestant says yes, otherwise I'm fine with the format.

Card Shark's kinda great I guess. I feel like someone else should be hosting it and Joel should be Match Game's host. The First game run was incredible though, wow.

And the second was bunk.

Three aces in a row? Come on.

Ouch, is tonight the first time a contestant has completely flamed out in the Press Your Luck bonus round?

One thing Im not getting with Card Sharks. You have to guess if the next card is higher or lower. But, as shown last night, it can be a card of the same value. You cant guess equal, so you instantly lose that card. What gives with that?

Wow, I can't believe how boring Holey Moley is. The obstacles aren't as wacky as Wipeout, the quips aren't as funny as Wipeout... It's honestly less fun than regular miniature golf. And I don't know why they even need Jeannie Mai, she doesn't get to interview the contestants and most of the course analysis is done by the anchors anyway.

And Family Food Fight brings nothing new to the table, while assuming the family aspect would do that. The talents of the professional chefs are pretty much wasted here, they would have been better served with a couple more regular foodies like Ayesha is.

Ugh, Mellanie pushing to all five bonus rounds on Press Your Luck made her final total feel like a failure.

Round Four was the perfect time to stop, and she'd have gone out unscathed.

I won’t watch Press your Luck until they decide to bring back the Double Whammies.
