Shows join previously announced sophomore season of ‘Holey Moley’

Following a successful run last summer that propelled ABC to rank No. 1 across all key adult demos, the network announced the return of seven shows from its popular “Summer Fun & Games” lineup, including “The $100,000 Pyramid” (season five), “Card Sharks” (season two), “Celebrity Family Feud” (season six), “Match Game” (season five), “Press Your Luck” (season two), “To Tell the Truth” (season five), and, as previously announced, the second season of “Holey Moley.”

“Summer has become synonymous with ABC’s ‘Fun & Games’ brand,” said Rob Mills, senior vice president, alternative series, specials and late night, ABC Entertainment. “To have these shows return is a testament to their strength, and the excitement and fun they bring each week. These are legit star-studded shows that celebrate everything we love about the spirit of competition. Thanks to them and ‘The Bachelorette,’ we dominated summer and are doubling down on next year.”

ABC ranked as the No. 1 network of the summer among adults 18-49 (1.0/5 – tie with NBC), marking the first time the Net ranked No. 1 during the summer in 24 years – since summer 1995. In addition, ABC finished as the summer’s No. 1 network with adults 18-34 and among key female demos (W18-34/W18-49). Additionally, ABC claimed a network-leading 9 of the Top 20 entertainment broadcast series over the summer in adults 18-49, including the summer’s No. 1 show with “The Bachelorette.”
