    Match Game ~ Gameshow Marathon on CBS

    I LOVE Match Game, and YAY!!!!! They brought
    back (or rebuilt the old set from the 70's!)

    BUT, Ricki Lake is a HORRIBLE M.C!!!

    I'd love to see a new Match Game on TV,
    and Kathy Griffin is a perfect replacement
    for Brett Sommers, and Bruce Vilanch is
    is Great (albeit larger) replacement for
    Charles Nelson Reilly. It was so nice to
    see Betty White on the show too!!!!!!!

    Bring Back Match Game with the old set!!!!

    I agree- I LOVE the Match Game. I would love to see a newer version of it. I have been so excited since this GameShow marathon thing started just for the Match Game and then I went and forgot about it! But I saw the last 10 minutes. I do wish they'd bring it back!

    And I agree about Kathy Griffith! I love her.

    Re: Match Game ~ Gameshow Marathon on CBS

    I've enjoyed watching the old Match Game reruns with Gene Rayburn, on GSN. I am also a big fan of the old B&W "What's My Line" episodes they show every night with John Daly, Bennett Cerf, Arlene Francis and Dorothy Kilgallen! (Walt Disney was a "mystery guest" in one episode.)

    Watched it last night and thought it was very good.

    But come on ... Adrianne Curry is NOT a celebrity. If Kathy Griffin is on the D list, Adrianne Curry must be on the Z list.

    You could tell she was annoying some of the people on the show as well.

    And boy ... that Lance Bass is sure smart ...

    Re: Match Game ~ Gameshow Marathon on CBS

    I was liking this Gameshow Marathon idea at first. Then it wound up being only that small handfull of "celebs". Ultimately, it's been the inconsistent airing schedule which has caused me to miss it often and quit watching.

    I agree that Ricki is a "meh" hostess, but if nothing else came of this show it at least revived (if even briefly) my old crush on the adorably cute Page Davis.

    I saw a bit of it last night too and I liked it. I know my mom would like it too. She used to watch all the older Match Game shows on GSN. Was that Adrianne Curry chick the brunette? There was one girl I had no clue who she was.

    Yeah, but did Lance win

    This seemed like a great concept, but had Lance not been in it, I would have stopped watching after ep. 1.
    Ricki is HORRIBLE!
    But it has been neat to see all of the old game show clips and sets!
    I miss game shows. (and GSN!)
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Pimp my __(BLANK)____ was one of Lance's questions.

    His answer "Bride" should have matched at least 4 or 5 celebs
    but Adrienne (peter brady's fiance) and adam corolla are just
    too stupid.

    Re: Match Game ~ Gameshow Marathon on CBS

    It's rumored that FreemantleMedia are using GSM as 'Mini-Pliots' of possibily bringing these old game shows back in some form. I'm a big fan of Game Shows in general, and GSM (a format brought over from Europe) is a sure ticket back to these shows. Be sure to pop a letter over to FreeMantleMedia, and CBS if you would like to see any of these shows come back.
