This Sunday, “The Match Game” is back. The first panel of celebrity players consists of a reunion of “The View” ex co hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Sherri Shepherd. Rosie is taking over the slot of the late Brett Somers, who was the real life ex wife of Jack Klugman and an absolute star of this show. Somers and Charles Nelson Reilly were a formidable team on “The Match Game.”
In addition to Rosie and Sherri, the other players will be “Kimmy Schmidt” Emmy nominee Tituss Burgess one time “SNL” performer Horatio Sanz, plus designer Isaac Mizhrahi.
Following up will be Adam Goldberg (“The Jim Gaffigan Show”), Ana Gasteyer (“Lady Dynamite,” “Saturday Night Live” alum, Bobby Moynihan (“Saturday Night Live’, D.L. Hughley (Comedian/Author)
Debra Messing (ABC’s “Dirty Dancing,” “Mysteries of Laura,” “Will & Grace”), Edie Falco (Multi-Emmy Award Winner), J.B. Smoove (“Barbershop: The Next Cut,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm”)
Jenna Fischer (“The Office”) and Sutton Foster (“Younger”; Two-Time Tony Award-Winner).
The show is on late Sundays- 10pm– so maybe it will be a little “edgy.” At least by network standards, which are stuck in the 1960s. But a lot of these people are smart and articulate, so let’s hope for the best.
