While his buddy Coco goes to TBS to start his late night show, Conan sidekick Andy Richter is going to be staying at CBS as the new host of the reboot of the game show $100,000 Pyramid.
Richter will follow in the footsteps of Dick Clark who hosted the show in the 70’s (technically Donny Osmond did a stint from 2002 to 04 but let’s not talk about that).
Last year several pilots were done with different hosts that never took off, including Dean Cain, Tim Vincent, and even Howie Mandel. Richter can be a good fit for the show, after all he has a goofy yet likable personality that is solid for hosting a game show. Plus it’s not like we will ever get any more episodes of Andy Richter Controls The Universe (sigh).
Oh a side note, do you think The Masturbating Bear will get to host a reboot of the Dating Game?
