Storyline

Match Game is back!

Join host Darrin Rose and our star panelists Debra DiGiovanni and Sean Cullen and get in on the funny. The classic word association game show features two competitors and a panel of six celebrities, leading to unlimited homegrown hilarity. The series will put some of Canada's funniest people in the spotlight, as the competitors have to match their answers to fill-in-the-blank questions to those of the panelists. Through three rounds of play, only one competitor is left to go up against three of their chosen celebrities, with each matching answer increasing their winnings. In the final round, competitors spin the Star Wheel and play against the celebrity the wheel lands on.

Match Game is filled with saucy innuendo, double entendres, and always has hilarious results!

Very Disappointing
30 January 2015 | by eatcroweplsSee all my reviews

I'm very disappointed in this show and the comedy just came up lame in it.

First off, the host seems like his is very stiff and inexperienced. He just doesn't seem like he is able to create and carry on a natural sounding conversation with the competitors and the judges. His lines seem forced and even at some times mean, but without being funny or like a joke.

I agree with the other review that the judges are incredibly unprofessional and are simply not giving answers that are funny. What's worst is when they go out of their way to make up an answer they think is funny but then it's not funny and on top of that the answer is so crazy that the guesser has no chance to match up their answers and get points.

To put it simply it's like the judges don't understand how the game is supposed to work at all and they are only concerned with trying to give a funny answer and act wacky on television for themselves rather than help the competitors try to win the game and prizes. Which is just stupid and frustrating because they don't even succeed in being funny.

This is a pointless show and a huge waste of a tried and true game show that has been around for a very long time. It hasn't changed at all and I'm just disappointed every time I make the mistake of tuning in to try it again.
