On Match Game, contestants try to match the answers to “fill in the blank” questions with as many celebrities as they can. At stake is a grand prize of $25,000.

The third season of Match Game averaged a 0.66 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.20 million viewers. Compared to season two, that’s down by 23% in the demo and down by 4% in viewership. Find out how Match Game stacks up against other ABC TV shows.
Will ABC cancel or renew Match Game for season four? The show continued its downward slide in the ratings last year so, even though game shows are far cheaper to produce than scripted fare, the network can only afford to let them go so low. Thus far the Match Game’s ratings have remained pretty steady which is no easy feat these days. For now, I suspect that Match Game will be renewed. I’m going to keep a hungry eye on the Nielsens and update this page with breaking developments. Subscribe for free alerts on Match Game cancellation or renewal news.
