Uh...1990?

Sorry.

Maybe Gene was sick so they had Bert do it that year?

*snicker*

Match Game 90 was regularly hosted by Ross Shafer, but I just saw a blooper with Bert hosting it, and it caught me as odd. Thus the question.

But thanks anyway!

Just the pilot ep.

Ah. Weird that they included a pilot in the show, but then again, there was Sajak fiasco there too...

Well, that wasn't the only one. They had "I'm With Stupid," too.

My answer: sometime before he died. *nods*

That's one of those "Who are four people who have never been in my kitchen?" things, isn't it?

Crap.

I guess that means I forgot to watch the special.

Plenty of showtimes for the first one still left.

Sweet! Thanks.

(I really am stuck in alongtimeagoland, where shows ran once and were forgotten.)

You know, I was just wondering something. I could've sworn the other day I saw a clip of Jeff Probst hosting Jeopardy!, but my mother, game show fan that she says, says I'm nuts and that Alex Trebek has hosted every ep since its reincarnation.

So, has Jeff Probst ever been a substitute host on Jeopardy!?

Oh. That must have been what I saw a clip of once, then.

I remember reading one of your game show friends' pages about that one April Fools Day episode in which Pat Sajak switched shows with Alex Trebek.

Was GSMGB actually any good, on balance? (Any non-US stuff?)

Quite a bit of Family Fortunes and Distraction footage was used. One Family Fortunes clip must've been from the show's early days, easily 20 years old.

Overall, I thought it was good. I've already told the TiVo to season pass the entire run.

Thanks. That's what I had feared.
