The panel game show will return this June.
April 10, 2019
ABC is bringing back Match Game for a fifth season. The network announced its summer schedule today, with the panel game show pencilled in for a June 12th premiere this time around.
Match Game originally debuted way back in 1962, going on to air numerous revivals over the decades that followed. This latest update to Match Game, hosted by Alec Baldwin, premiered in 2016 as part of ABC's 'Sunday Fun & Games' block, airing in the 10:00pm hour following Celebrity Family Feud and The $100,000 Pyramid.
Typically airing in the winter months - Season 4 just ran earlier this year - Match Game is being moved to join a game show-heavy summer lineup for Season 5. The network is moving heavily towards unscripted fare for the off months of 2019. It will join the likes of Feud, Pyramid, To Tell the Truth, Press Your Luck, and Card Sharks.

I love match game.. it's hilarious and for all walks of life with a sense of humor. You don't have to have a master's degree or photographic memory to play and win! It helps to be creative with a sense of humor. I hope alot of the old game shows come back. I watch buzzr channel because they show all the old game shows.

Match Game is NOT garbage! It's NOT your fault if you think that, you would NEED a Sense Of Humor to "Get It" while watching the show! Sorry you don't have one, that HAS to SUCK!

They try to act like being dirty is funny or risqué. Somebody needs to get these people an internet connection and maybe we can get back to quality game shows. Also just because it makes money doesn't make it good. If you've seen it you can understand why some one calls it garbage.

Why is it garbage? It's a game show that makes them money. It's cheap to make and that's why game shows have been around since the radio days. Plus the lead guy does a spot on trump impersonation. If needed, for laughs.
