ABC is about to get a boatload of press for their new Sunday evening game show block. Just confirmed: the former governor of Alaska and former vice president candidate Sarah Palin is on her way to be a panelist on Match Game. (Buzzerblog)
Hosted by Alec Baldwin, this is the third incarnation of the popular game show. The show originally debuted in 1962 and ran for eight seasons. The show was reborn in 1973, again hosted by Gene Rayburn, this time retitled as ‘Match Game 73’ and ran for an additional nine years.
ABC resurrected the format once again this summer, with the debut episode airing last Sunday. The celebrity panelists in the premiere were Debra Messing, J.B. Smoove, Michael Ian Black, Rosie O’Donnell, Sutton Foster and Tituss Burgess.
Whether longtime Palin “critic” Rosie O’Donnell is a ‘Match Game’ regular, and will appear on-air with Sarah is unknown at this time, but if the two share the panel together, it may provide for some “interesting” television.
While the news shared by the Governor indicates that she will will be in-studio to tape today, no word as of yet when the episode will broadcast.
