The Friday show features a classic Match Game moment: Gene announces that Brett and Charles are leaving the show to go on tour singing country music with Bill Anderson. The two regulars are wearing western hats and answering all their questions in phoney country accents. The show ends with Bill on guitar singing a tune he wrote for Debralee, accompanied badly by Charles and Brett.
During some of the question rounds this week, they play different music, and sometimes Gene dances to the music while the stars are writing their answers.
One of the episodes this week, Gene mentioned the show being picked up in Germany and that they didn't have a word for "blank" in Germany, so they use "sniksnak" instead. For the rest of the episode, he uses "sniksnak" in place of "blank" and for much of the episode, Gene and the rest of the stars talk with fake German accents.
In the April 18th, 1975, ""Match Game '75" episode, Which television show does Lynda Day George mostly appear in or co-star in?
The October 31st episode was a classic bad day for Charles Neslon Reilly. Mark Goodson sits in for a late Charles on the first question.

Then there's a question about who Charles is dressing up as for Halloween. Charles and the contestant match on "Brett".
Charles is sitting in the first seat on the upper tier, not his traditional third seat position.
This is the week where Gene Rayburn made a slip of the lip, referring to Kaen Lesko's dimples & came out nipples! The audience & panel roared, but the CBS censors removed that blooper.
This week's episodes were not taped in 'Match Game's' usual studio (where 'The Carol Burnett Show' and 'The Price is Right' were taped.) Notice that the stage is gone and the audience is in bleachers.
