ABC will be keeping game shows in its lineup for 2017. The network has renewed Match Game for a second season along with three other game show revivals. The new Match Game, hosted by Alec Baldwin, premiered its latest incarnation in late June as part of ABC's Sunday Fun & Games block, airing in the 10:00pm hour following Celebrity Family Feud and The $100,000 Pyramid.
The show premiered quite well for the network, giving ABC its largest summer audience in that time slot with regular programming in almost a decade. With Feud and Pyramid renewed as well, look for the game show block to return again next summer.
