I liked the Davidson's version -- it was "true" to the Pyramid formula (same music; same set) with a couple of wrinkles: the "Gamble for a Grand" card was a nice wrinkle to the front game: If you can do 7 in 25 instead of 30 seconds, it was worth a $1000. Would you gamble? I didn't care for the two-word phrases in 45 seconds they sometimes played. Davidson was decent as a host with a hefty burden: Compare him to other two hosts: Dick Clark (top-notch broadcaster without question) and Bill Cullen (I'd watch him host a dinner).
The show came (and left) at an odd time for syndication -- it ran the calendar year 1991, not over a traditional tv season. That certainly didn't help it, either.
