More game show nonsense

I loved when Game Show Network was running those '70s "Match Game" episodes seemingly around the clock. (Nowadays they've got way more of their "original" shows on the schedules and don't seem to run as many of the classics...) I could watch those old "Match Games" all day long. Richard Dawson, Charles Nelson Reilly, and Brett Somers were frickin' hilarious on the panel, and host Gene Rayburn was a hoot too. They don't make'em like that show anymore!!

Brett Somers was married to Jack Klugman of "Odd Couple" fame if memory serves. Is she even still alive? I know Charles Nelson Reilly kicked the bucket a year or two ago.

 

Gotta add Paul Lynde...he was a froot but funny as hell...

 

Plus he had the good taste to give KISS their first major TV exposure on his 1976 "Halloween Special" :metal:

Read somewhere that Dawson is the only surviving "regular" of the show. Found this on YouTube a few minutes ago. Charles Nelson Reilly, Brett Somers and Betty White from 2002 reminiscing about the show.

 

This show was sheer, out of control genius. I just watched an episode where the cast of The Carol Burnette Show crashed the show and it was freakin hilarious. Cast members would start mock fights with each other, cheat off of each other ... all kinds of crazy shit.

 

There's no way in hell any of today's celebutards could pull off a show like this - or Hollywood Squares. Weren't those cast members similar??

Okay, so you guys know I'm a Match Game junkie, right? Well, while watching it constantly I've wondered from time to time if anyone I knew when I lived in LA would ever pop up on the show (actually, their parents but I knew a few "older people" in LA also ..).

 

Well, I'm watching it the other night, as I always do, when lo and freakin behold someone with the same name as an old girlfriend of mine's mother was a contestant. Luckily, I'm actually still friends with that girl so I shot her an eMail asking if her mom had ever been on that show.

 

Would you fucking believe it was her?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

>> OH yea gotta LOVE the classic Match Game!!! the new one kinda sucks, but Damn that one from the 70s was funny as hell!!!! <<

 

There's a new version??? What's the point? The celebutards today have 1/1,000th of the charisma that Richard dawson, Brett somers, etc. had.

 

As for the 70's version, I'm addicted to it. I TiVo it everyday and wait until 15 - 20 episodes are recorded (which is every 3 or 4 days) and then have myself a lil marathon.

My son was watching the movie "All Dogs Go To Heaven" over the weekend and one of the dog's voices sounded very familiar but I couldn't place it... about half way thru the movie it finally hit me... it was perennial "Match Game" panelist Charles Nelson Reilly! :rofl:

    • "Local News" doesn't even exist anymore.Right out of the gate they slam you with the Covid numbers...the body count...a clusterf__k of  negativity..maybe a little time for weather and sports and then newscast DONE! On radio - same thing  every half hour: rinse-wash-repeat.National / global depression,drug use,suicide rates still climbing....
    • As if we need something else to worry about but with overpopulation and a rapidly changing world due to climate issues..... In 2009, a patient in Japan developed a new fungal infection on their ear. The highly transmissible Candida auris fungus had been previously unknown to science (and resistant to the drugs available to treat it), but within a few years, cases started emerging in Venezuela, Iran, Russia, and South Africa. Scientists assumed that the spread was due to human travel, but when they sequenced the cases, they were surprised to find that these strains weren't closely related at all. Instead, scientists were seeing multiple, independent infections of an unknown fungal disease, emerging around the world, all at the same time. About a third of people infected with Candida auris die from the infection within 30 days, and there have now been thousands of cases in 47 countries. Some scientists think this sudden boom in global cases is a harbinger of things to come.
    • Agreed. I subbed to Russell Brand starting about 2 months ago. Yes, he's on the Left, but VERY even-handed IMO.
    • It's so hard to find unbiased info on anything these days...I just wish this virus wasn't being politicized...trust the science...once the science figures out wtf is going on which it hasn't yet....
    • Did you hear the fabled "roadmap to reopening the borders" has now been halted/delayed due the new (horrified screaming) variants? It's so predictable and the media machine are backing the states the whole way. More people at home, more people watching TV, more people buying shit from billionaires, more money for advertising, more wages for journalists , more votes for the government, more laws to control the populace. Win win win for elites.
    • This is currently the best independent media commentator on the internet. He comes from the Left, but old-school classical liberal and not the new devisive identity politics. Here he is discussing the shit going down in Australia.  
    • Gotta love the irresponsible national / global media."The new normal" for these idiots is the endless,fear mongering ritual abuse of the populace where any news on the "virus".."variants"..etc brings another flogging with the covid stick.Anyone who dares to question the over-reaching actions by government,"the science" or the asinine-repetitive-exploitive newsroom press propaganda are labeled a "conspiracy theorist"..or misinformation spreader...we've seen it all before -  try it on someone else.
