    Charles Nelson Reilley. I always hated Betty White, though.

    It's got to be the incredible two-headed  monster  Brett and Charles--America's two leading wig wearers.  When Ava Gabor would be on, she probably made a killing selling to the upper tier!

    I always liked Brett, and I also liked Bob Barker whenever he popped around..but I think that was 75...

    That's a tough question, but I definately have to say Richard, but Brett and Charles are close seconds. Richard was just so good at matching the contestants, and he had great dead-pan humor.

    I like the ones that gave the silliest answers (based on their seemingly limited mental capacity) such as Joyce Bulifant, Bill Daly, Louisa Moritz, Elaine Joyce and the like. Then there were those who were otherwise intelligent but just didn't get the premise of the show like Jack Narz, Allen Ludden, Bill Anderson, Nipsey Russell. Nothing beats the ribbing that Allen Ludden got when he filled in _______ Arthur with "President" Arthur.

    That'd be CNR (Charles Nelson Riley).

    Probably Charles, but Brett was a close second.  

    I actually couldn't stand Richard Dawson.  He always seemed so smug (but that's just my opinion).

    Oh, no doubt about it! Brett Somers, followed closely (as always) by Charles Nelson Reilly! Other favorite panel members were Nipsey Russell (why has no one mentioned this great guy yet??), Richard Dawson, Fannie Flagg, & ... *drumroll* ... Elaine Joyce!

    I loved all the panelists - let's face it, I loved Match Game!

    I love all the panelists too, mostly because they all brought their own style of comedy to the game, which made it just that much more enjoyable!
