(For that matter, "overslept" is insufficient to get credit for "oversleep"? C'mon. That's just loads of stupid.)
As long as they keep this crap up, they will never attain the success or quality of the Clark show.
Osmond apologists may direct their rebuttals to dev/null.
(Trace Atkins is a DAMN GOOD player, by the way. I'd like to see him take on Coolio.)

Credit should have been given for the past tense of "oversleep."

Seriously, whoever is in charge of the new Pyramid is disgracing the game.
Here's sort of a silly question: If, say, Nickelodeon got the rights to do their own $100,000 Pyramid, and it was more like the Clark Pyramid, barring the difference in host and child contestants, would you watch it?

Provided that the celebs don't get slimed at a random moment, like "Figure It Out", Nick's "What's My Line?" knockoff, or that they don't offer pieces of a cancelled Nick show's set as prizes (also like "Figure").

Now, unless this were a $100K tournament, I do agree that that's a bit stiff of a category for the WC.

Regarding "oversleep/overslept": There was some other word in the same show where they accepted the past tense. (I don't remember what it was, but I'll use "smoke" as an example.) If they had made the following argument, I would have respected it as simply a different standard of judging than what we're used to: The word "smoked" contains the entire word "smoke," but the word "overslept" does not contain the entire word "oversleep."
