ABC is Reviving ‘Match Game’ & Alec Baldwin is Hosting
One of my favorite things to do is watch game shows. I can easily waste a day watching game shows. If you too are a fan of game shows than you know that nothing compares to the classics and a popular [classic] one will be back on TV.
Match Game which premiered in the 60's, but was extremely successful in 70's, is being
revived by ABC and Alec Baldwin will be hosting!
According to Vulture.com, ABC will be dedicating a three-hour block of game shows on Sunday nights beginning June 26th. The "Sunday Fun & Games" will also include a new $100,000 Pyramid, which will be hosted by Michael Strahan, and Celebrity Family Feud with Steve Harvey. Yay more game shows!
If you're familiar with Match Game than you know it was about 2 people (competing against each other) who tried to guess how a panel of celebrities would respond to a series of fill-in-the-blank questions (suggestively, of course). There's no word on what celebrities will appear, but let's cross our fingers for Betty White.
The new Match Game will run for 10 episodes. Baldwin will also be an executive producer on the show and will be donating his appearance fees [from the show] to the Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation.
Below is an episode from 1978 where Betty White does a little "strip tease" halfway through the show.
