It's bawdy, irreverent and a whole lot of fun! The iconic panel game show returns to primetime, and is hosted by Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winning actor Alec Baldwin. The series features four contestants each week as they attempt to match the answers of six celebrities in a game of fill-in the missing blank. From quick-witted comedians to a multi-talented designer, to stars of stage and screen, the stellar lineup of panelists includes Golden Globe, Emmy, Tony and Grammy Award-winning entertainers, who are sure to make for an unpredictable_______.
For now, just as a jovial actor inhabiting an unexpected part, Baldwin is fun to watch and it's good to see him carrying over Rayburn's love for in-character clue readings, in this case a dismal-but-terrific Mick Jagger impression.The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
One reason the new Match Game was so much fun was that it remained essentially true to the original.Yahoo TV Full Review
Match Game’s brand is loony lewdness, and there is something admirable about the liberated way the revival practices it. It’s equal opportunity lewdness; everyone one the show, straight or gay, can be as blue as they wanna be. I like how Baldwin flirts, or pretends to flirt, with female and male celebrity panelists.Entertainment Weekly Full Review
