The Match was back...for one season anyway...
26 December 1999 | by mattk1See all my reviews

The Match was back, but not for long. The format was toyed with too much. 5 panelists instead of 6, 4 which were regulars. The nature of the questions changed too. Many questions led to poking fun at Bill Clinton and male anatomy, and the answers were frequently too explicit for tv. The panel also lacked balance. Vicki Lawrence looked as if she really didn't want to be there some of the time, Judy Tenuta was too loud and frequently upstaged the panel. Nell Carter was a bump on the log. Michael Burger did his best with a weak panel. Michael is not Gene Rayburn, but he had some funny moments.
