Who ever saw the 'New' Match Game?

I'm watching this on Game Show Network right now. What an abomination it was. No wonder I never saw it before. Poor Charles Nelson Reiley sitting on the panel..

I saw it once a few years ago, I think Judy Tenuta was one of the panelists. I longed for the days of Nipsey Russell, Bill Daily, Gary Burghoff, etc. Humbug.

I met Bill Daily a little over a year ago at the Ultimate TV Fan championships, and it was pretty sad. He was such a nice guy, but talk about not funny. He did they same act for two different tapings, and it was embarassingly unfunny both times At least his niece was freakin' hot

That's the one that came on in the late 90s. The one they showed today was the early 90s and it wasn't bad. It also had the woman from Mr. Belvedere and Sally Struthers.

What time does Game Show Network run the "new" version? The only version I've seen on there is the original 70's version with Gene Rayburn. I'd like to see what they did to try and update it....whatever it is, it must not have worked too well.

Thanks. Just missed it today. Caught the very end and heard the "updated" theme. Weird.

Yeah, that was one of the funniest things I'd ever seen. He nailed it.

Nothing can beat Family Guy's version of The Match Game:


"Johnny's memory was so bad, that every time he tried to remember someone's name he drew a blank"
