Match Game PM

Show Summary

Match Game PM was the weekly nighttime syndicated version of Match Game 73-79, that aired on Saturday nights in prime-time. It was very similar to the daytime version, except there were no returning champions. In the first season of Match Game PM (1975), the contestants played 2 rounds, and whomever had the most matches won, and played the bonus round which could pay up to $10,000. Producers found that there was alot of free time at the end of each episode in season 1, so at the beginning of the 2nd season (1976), it was changed to 3 rounds. When the star wheel was introduced in Mid 1978, the Match Game PM contestants had the chance to win up to $20,000 if they landed on the stars that were on the wheel. Although the daily Match Game went off CBS in 1979, for a few months, new episodes of Match Game PM would still air on Saturday nights. As far as we know, all episodes still exist, as most of them have aired on GSN (still do).moreless

  • Ridiculous game where the contestants are stupid, and the panel never fails to amuse.

    I used to watch this with my parents if we happened to change to it on the weekend on GSN. It's a funny show, reminding me of Hollywood Squares. The panel are all very queer and eccentric, throwing inside jokes and unintelligibles back and forth. The contestants usually aren't extremely bright, probably the previous generation to those who would later appear on "Deal or No Deal." Along with the original "Family Feud," I always find something funny, even if it is the sheer nonsense that is displayed by everyone on stage. A nice break from their rigorous acting careers I'm sure.moreless
  • Great show until Dawson left!

    I think that the show was great and that I

    Loved it when all the panelists and Gene Rayburn made

    The show what it was. When Richard Dawson left on bad

    Terms due to his ego being out of control since he

    Was now popular on Family Feud, the show suffered a lot.

    But still, loved those days and sometimes the contestants would have to play the straight man or woman to the stars!

  • Funny show, good and funny.

    They talked a little dirty, but in a way it could be said on 1970's tv. A good cast of stars by the way. It's a shame the show is still not on as new shows. the new game shows of today just suck. And can't hold a candle to old one like match game and press your luck.
  • This is my personal favorite game show and without a doubt, a classic.

    Who doesn't love Richard Dawson??? (also known as the kissing host on Family Feud)(who by the way can kiss me anyday). This brilliant, brilliant man, along with the two other regulars, Brett Sommers, and Charles Nelson Reilly worked great together. This game show can be quite amusing hearing what the celebrity panel or the host Gene Rayburn had to say. Betty White and/or Fannie Flag came up with the most ridiculous answers, you had to love them. I personally love how Brett and Charles argued back and forth. Or how Brett would need serveral cards to come up with her answers. Or how she wanted to kill the buzzer guy. Great game show :o)moreless
