ABC to Bring Back Match Game with Alec Baldwin as Host


One of America’s favorite TV game shows of all time “Match Game” will be having a revival, this time in primtime! The game show has been on NBC and CBS in the past, then ABC in the 1990’s. On Sunday, June 26th it will be making a 10-episode revival as part of the Sunday Fun & Games TV block, along with “Celebrity Family Feud” and “The 100,000 Pyramid” in a primetime TV time block 8-11pm EDT.

The extra special part about the “Match Game” revival? Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winning actor Alec Baldwin will be the host, as well as serving as executive producer. Baldwin will be donating his appearance fee towards the Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation, which support artists and the arts. Baldwin is just as excited as we are, and had this to say about the revival:

“I am beyond grateful to ABC and Fremantle Media for the chance to host a summer series of the legendary ‘Match Game.” Hilaria and I are thrilled to donate this fee to arts related charities. And we look forward to having a lot of fun.”

“Match Game” is a game show that features two contestants that try to match the answers of six celebrities in a fill-in the missing blank game.

The show will be in the 10-11pm EDT portion of the Sunday Fun & Games ABC Primetime spot.
