A revival of the ''$25,000'' format premiered on ABC on June 26, 2016, hosted by Michael Strahan and renamed as ''The $100,000 Pyramid'', offering top prizes of $50,000 and $100,000 in the Winner's Circle. Due to his commitments to ''Good Morning America'', the show returned not only to ABC, but also to New York, having taped there from 1973 until 1982 [[note]](with the exception of a brief stint in the 70s at Television City)[[/note]] and for one of the 2009 CBS pilots.

* PressXToDie: Giving the word itself as a clue[[note]]or part of the word (including its first letter), or stating that it rhymes with another word, unless either was already dictated by the category; usually indicated by Dick saying "You may/may not use ____ in your clues"[[/note]] automatically disqualified it; this would be signified by a "cuckoo" sound (or a "burble" on ''Donnymid'').

As on ''Series/{{Password}}'', this has been hard to do for some players due to the word being [[IgnoreTheDisability right in front of them]]; Steve Schirripa and his partner found this out the hard way on ''$100,000'''s August 14, 2016 episode.

** On many occasions, a team lagged far enough behind that the game ended after the fifth category (unless the sixth was a bonus). At least three times ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zSzpf92FfBc October 19, 1982]]; May 25, 1985; and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pEQ6M5IU_-k during the week of April 28-May 2, 1986]]), the game ended after '''four'''.

Added DiffLines:

* SchizoTech: The current ''$100,000'' run on ABC has an interesting case- trilons are back, but now use flatscreen monitors instead of slides. Similarly, the 1991 ''$100,000'' had the front-game trilons replaced with monitors early on, and the 2009 pilots had pure trilons again.

** ABC ''$100,000 Pyramid'', July 24, 2016. The Winner's Circle round was not going so well, and [[Series/OrangeIsTheNewBlack Natasha Lyonne]] (this version had the contestant give the clues) was struggling throughout the whole round. When they went back to "Things You Hit", things went from okay to bad to worse with these clues: A Baseball, A Person, [[DomesticAbuser Your Wife]]. That last clue had the whole audience turn against the player, the first time in ''Pyramid'' history this has happened. Not helping his case was how he tried to justify that clue.
