What’s This TV Show About?
Alec Baldwin hosts Match Game, a reboot of the classic game show, airing on the ABC television network. In the series, contestants answer fun “fill in the blank” questions, hoping to match answers with as many of celebrities panelists as possible. They compete for a grand prize of $25,000. Celebrity panelists in season two of this ABC series include Jason Alexander, Cheryl Hines, Ice T, Ellie Kemper, Wayne Brady, Caroline Rhea, Amy Sedaris, Chris D’Elia, Constance Zimmer, Jane Krakowski, Rick Fox, Tituss Burgess, Andy Richter, Bellamy Young, Judy Greer, Neil deGrasse Tyson, and Skylar Astin.
Season Two Ratings
The second season of Match Game averaged a 0.85 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.35 million viewers. Compared to season one, that’s down by 21% in the demo and down by 35% in terms of total viewers. Learn how Match Game stacks up against the other ABC TV shows.
Although its audience is smaller in season two, Match Game’s ratings have risen in the ever important 18-49 year old demo. ABC has much more expensive scripted series performing about the same or worse than this game show. I don’t think I’ll get any satisfaction around here this year. I expect Match Game will be renewed for season three on ABC.
8/6/17 update: ABC has officially renewed Match Game for a third season. Details here.
