Loved this, too!
20 February 2002 | by See all my reviews

I loved this version of "The Match Game," too...especially since it came on after school! Yes, the rules were better, and the star wheel sucked, but it was still funny!

However, to beat all irony of ironies, in my hometown, "The Match Game PM" and "Family Feud" were aired back to back!

I'm sure Richard Dawson was thrilled...
