Celebrity Family Feud Returns, Plus All-New Pyramid on ABC; Celebrate Chinese New Year with Fresh Off the Boat

Celebrity Family Feud

The Pyramid is back! The Emmy Award-winning pop-culture phenomenon is re-imagined and better than ever! Hosted by Pro Football Hall of Famer and celebrated TV personality Michael Strahan, every episode will have 100 grand up for grabs. The hottest stars will team up with players from across the country to take on the timeless war of words, racing against the clock to give and guess clues in one of TV's all-time great word-association games. Celebrity guests from entertainment and sports will compete throughout the season. $100,000 Pyramid is a 10-episode series and will air this summer on the ABC Television Network. The series will be produced by SMAC Entertainment in association with Sony Pictures Television and will be taped in front of a live audience in New York. And that's not all for your celeb game show fans, the primetime summer hit, Celebrity Family Feud, produced by FremantleMedia North America, returns for a second season on the ABC Television Network. Steve Harvey, the highly popular multi-hyphenate standup comedian, actor, author, deejay and Emmy(R) Award-winning game show host, will pit celebrities and their families against each other in a contest to name the most popular responses to a survey-type question posed to 100 people. The second season will begin filming in March 2016, and a premiere date will be announced at a later time. Celebrity Family Feud is taped in front of a live audience in Los Angeles, California.


Fresh Off the Boat

ABC's Fresh Off the Boat and Panda Express, America's favorite Chinese restaurant, are joining together to celebrate Chinese New Year and encourage viewers and guests alike to join in on the celebration. Panda Express restaurants across the country will display special branded Fresh Off the Boat Chinese New Year Posters and table tents featuring the Huangs. To see how the Huang family celebrates Chinese New Year, viewers can watch Fresh Off the Boat when it returns with an all-new episode on Tuesday, February 2 at its new time period of 8:00pm EST.
