Last week, Clark did the only thing that he would ever do, or
could ever do, to besmirch that legacy of Always Being Dick
Clark. He died. Most remembrances have placed the focus foremost
on his music-related projects, and rightly so. When I heard the
news of Clark’s death, though, my thoughts went to the Lyman
twins. For me, as I suspect for them, Clark’s legacy is felt most
deeply with Pyramid. There may be no such thing as the perfect
game show, but Pyramid is the closest anyone has ever come, in no
small part because for 15 years and almost 4,000 episodes, it had
the perfect host.
I spent the weekend watching hours of old Pyramid shows on the Game Show Network. Teti nails it.
