Game show in which 6 guest stars (which change from week to week) are given a humorous phrase with one word missing. The stars write down a word they think would be most appropriate for the missing word, and then two contestants try to guess what the stars have chosen.

Initially the show played as a straight up game, as Mark Goodson didn't want it to be a comedy show within a game like NBC's Hollywood Squares. However, after one of the celebrities answered "boobs" to a question, the show went into more of a comedy direction as the show saw a big ratings increase. The new focus made it the most popular show on daytime television. It also made the show appeal to a younger, teenage demographic who came home from school, an audience that typically avoided game shows. See more »

I think what made the Match Game such a hit was that anybody who watches it can't help but play. Even though the game had a very weak structure, the comedy, the contestants, the celebrities, and most importantly the revolutionizing questions, make the greatest game show ever. This show didn't make you a millionaire, but for thirty minutes, it made you feel like you had seven friends who's only job was to make you laugh. God Bless You, Gene Rayburn, Brett Somers, Charles Nelson Reilly, Richard Dawson, and Patti Deutsch. (Pardon my spelling)
