GSN Presents a Tribute to MATCH GAMES' Beloved Panelists Brett Somers and Charles Nelson Reilly
Panelists Match-Off on Their Best MATCH GAME Episodes During the Week of
February 20th on GSN
SANTA MONICA, Calif., Jan. 31 -- GSN will feature Brett
Somers and Charles Nelson Reilly at their most outrageous, most argumentative,
most bitingly sarcastic, and funniest on "The Best of Brett & Charles" during
MATCH GAME "That '70s Hour" the week of February 20 at 11:00 PM and 11:30 PM
Brett Somers and Charles Nelson Reilly became staples on MATCH GAME in the
mid-70s with their eccentric, yet compelling personalities. What started as a
guest appearance for Somers with her husband, Jack Klugman (Odd Couple),
surprisingly turned into a regular spot. Her whit cemented a perfect mix of
panelists on the new show.
Reilly, a theatre actor turned game show regular, made the fireworks
really fly with his quick come-backs and quirky sensibilities. Somers and
Reilly became cult-icons of the much loved game show and now can be seen at
their best on GSN.
Below is the schedule for MATCH GAME "The Best of Brett and Charles" and
