Do celebrities improve television game shows? If so, “The Pyramid” on GSN may be one of the best game shows ever. Sixteen TV personalities — including Dot-Marie Jones, Chandra Wilson and Danny Pudi — will appear in the show’s upcoming season.

The celebrities will all participate in sets of two on “The Pyramid,” with each pair remaining for a full week of episodes. Which celebrities do we get?

Melissa Peterman (“Baby Daddy”)
Nick Turturro (“Blue Bloods”)
Danny Pudi (“Community”)
Yvette Nicole Brown (“Community”)
Wallace Langham (“CSI”)
Dot-Marie Jones (“Glee”)
Chandra Wilson (“Grey’s Anatomy”)
Jai Rodriguez (“Malibu Country” and “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy”)
Lamorne Morris (“New Girl”)
Kate Flannery (“The Office”)
Oscar Nunez (“The Office”)
Jim O’Heir (“Parks and Recreation”)
Megyn Price (“Rules of Engagement”)
Joshua Malina (“Scandal”)
Aida Turturro (“The Sopranos”)
Samantha Harris (“Stars Earn Stripes” and “Dancing with the Stars”)

Brown and Pudi will feature in the season-premiere week, beginning on Sept. 3. Mike Richards (“Beauty and the Geek”) will host “The Pyramid” throughout the season.

“The Pyramid” is a reboot of the classic “Pyramid” game shows. The format pairs each celeb with a non-famous contestant. The contestants take turns guessing words and phrases from clues, with the higher-scoring team advancing to the Winner’s Circle for a top prize.

If the simple name, “Pyramid,” doesn’t seem familiar, you may know the show by one of its many, more-specific names: “The $10,000 Pyramid,” “The $25,000 Pyramid” or “The $100,000 Pyramid.”

“The Pyramid” will premiere on Monday, Sept. 3 and will air every weekday at 6 p.m. ET on GSN.
