Match Game Hosted by Alec Baldwin - Show Summary

Match Game is a classic television program that has aired in a variety of incarnations since 1962.  The present program has been running since 2016 on ABC, hosted and executive produced by Alec Baldwin.  The show airs on Sundays as part of ABC’s Sunday Fun and Games segment, alongside shows such as Celebrity Family Feud and The $100,000 Pyramid with Michael Strahan.

The program is a game show, in which contestants aim to come up with answers to fill-in-the-blank questions, and then a panel of celebrities answers as well, with the ultimate aim being for the contestants to match the celebrities’ answers.  In this rendition of Match Game, some of the recurring celebrities have included Jason Alexander, Ana Gasteyer, Rosie O’Donnell, Caroline Rhea, Wayne Brady, Casey Wilson, Leah Remini, Constance Zimmer, Jack McBrayer, Cheryl Hines, Tituss Burgess, Niecy Nash, Jay Pharoah, Ellie Kemper, Sheryl Crow, David Alan Grier, Horatio Sanz, Chris D’Elia, Judy Greer, Jane Krakowski, Jenna Fischer, Adam Carolla, and Sherri Shepherd.  Each episode features two full games, each with two new contestants, and two questions per contestant.

The winner of each game then advances to the Super Match, which consists of an Audience Match segment, and the Head-to-Head Match segment. In the Audience Match, a phrase is given, with a word left blank, and the contestant aims to fill in the best word based on a prior audience survey, consulting celebrities for suggestions.

The values for the Audience Match winner range from $5,000 to $3,000 to $2,000 to $1,000, depending on whether the contestant matches any or none of the top three answers from the audience survey. The contestant then goes head to head with a celebrity of their choice for the next round, in which they can multiply their winnings from the Audience Match segment by five, allowing for a possible top prize of $25,000.

Should you see Match Game being taped?

Match Game TV Show
  There is a reason that Match Game continues to delight audiences to this day, ever since it was first aired in 1962. The show is engaging, hilarious, and keeps you at the edge of your seat. In addition to the excitement of seeing if the contestant will answer correctly, there is the added excitement of joining in the audience survey, which is directly related to the contestant’s fate in the "Audience Match" round. Furthermore, the show has many comical effects, such as a whistle sound effect when a word or phrase is spoken that is deemed inappropriate for broadcast. The show also uses blurring or pixilating to block out inappropriate answers written on answer cards. Hosted by the incredibly gregarious and charming Alec Baldwin, Match Game brings together the host’s star power, quick wit and charm to make Match Game an integral part of ABC’s Sunday Fun & Games. In addition to his role as host and executive producer of Match Game, Alec Baldwin has signed a two-year first look deal with ABC Studios, allowing Baldwin’s company to develop scripted and unscripted television projects with the network. This demonstrates Baldwin’s unique abilities as host and television personality, which are not to be missed in the irresistible Match Game.
