** Creator/BernadettePeters pointed to her breasts during her appearance on the original ''$10,000'' version in 1974, when she was trying to get her partner to say "Things Around Your Neck". This was the reason the straps were added to the givers' chair in the Winner's Circle.

The most recent trio of pilots for Creator/{{CBS}} were taped on June 22 and 23, 2010, with Andy Richter as host. These were passed upon in favor of ''The Talk'', a mother-oriented talk show fronted by (among others) ''Series/BigBrother'' host Julie Chen...who is ''also'' the wife of CBS executive Les Moonves, leading to suggestions that {{nepotism}} was the cause. Richter was also slated to host a pilot for Creator/{{TBS}} in 2011.

After having been trapped in DevelopmentHell for eight years, Creator/{{GSN}} finally raised the curtain on a new edition, now titled ''The Pyramid'', [[http://corp.gsn.com/press/releases/gsn-announces-premiere-pyramid-monday-september-3 on September 3, 2012]], with Mike Richards (not [[Series/{{Seinfeld}} this one]], but [[Series/ThePriceIsRight that one]]) as host. The series lasted only 40 episodes before being cancelled due to low ratings.

* AffectionateParody: Comcast did a commercial during their "It's Comcastic!" campaign using the Winner's Circle of a ''$20,000'' episode with the categories digitally altered, presumably to say "Hey, we have Creator/{{GSN}}!" Two versions of the commercial were made a 30-second one that skips the fourth category, and a 60-second one that features Dick Clark in a cameo.

** In one Winner's Circle, Adrienne Barbeau tried to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5eZcLbGwOF0 flicker her eyelashes]] while giving a clue for "Things That Flicker", causing Dick to chuckle and say, "You dirty dog." This caused an awkward situation when both Dick and Adrienne swore they heard the contestant say "flicker"; when they came back from commercial, it's revealed that he said "flutter", and that even if he ''had'' said "flicker" they wouldn't have accepted it because physical clues aren't allowed (with the exception of nodding to indicate that the receiver is close to the right answer).

The show lasted in several forms in every year from 1973 to 1988, generally increasing the dollar amount in the title with each new version. What started as $10,000 became $20,000, $25,000, $50,000, and even $100,000 over time. Creator/DickClark hosted most of the 197388 versions, except for the first $25,000 version which was hosted by Creator/BillCullen. A $100,000 revival was syndicated in 1991 with John Davidson as host. After failed pilots during the 1996-2000 period (one of which, ''Pyramid Rocks'', had a rock music theme), the show returned from 2002 to 2004 as just ''Pyramid'', with Donny Osmond as host. (For this reason, it's more commonly known as ''[[FanNickname Donnymid]]''.) This new version introduced several rule changes that many fans of the show disliked, lax writing and judging, often-clueless celebrities, and a [[NoIndoorVoice hyperactive]] host.
