Match Game host 

"Match Game" review by Eva Diaz  6/29/16
Airs Sundays 9/10c on ABC

I was looking forward to watching this because the original version of the show was one of my favorite game shows. I like it because it had the feel of the orignal show; the new version didn't change any of the rules or anything. (If you want to watch the original show, you can watch it on GSN). The game is played this way: a panel of famous people are asked questions (usually with a fill-in-the-blanks option), and they try to match their answers with the answers of contestants on the show, so that the contestants can have a chance at winning money.

Alec Baldwin is the host of the show, and at times he seems nervous and uncomfortable as the host, perhaps because he has never hosted a game show before. That tends to take away from the fun of the show, for me. The panelists are really funny and are the focus of the show, making jokes as they give their answers, and generally making the show fun to watch. I enjoyed watching it; again, the only weak link is Alec Baldwin.  Hopefully he willl become more comfortable in his role as host of the show.

I think this is more of an adult game show, more then it is for children.  Parents should watch it first to see if they could watch it with their older teenagers because they do have a lot of sexual jokes, and jokes with double meanings (just like the old one did, only more so because it's not 1976 any more). I give this show 4 out of 5 stars.
