    Match Game returning on January 4th? Hope will see more blanks and Alec Baldwin in Summer 2017.

      Replacing scripted series with game shows? How cheap is ABC? I thought we only had to put up with that in the summer. I will not be watching.

  2. Brian says:

    So does Designated Survivor have a long midseason break or is Match Game just on for a few weeks?

  3. iHeart says:

    oh I am guessing that they’ve run out of Lucy episodes to Colourize? well either way I am looking forward to seeing those episodes of Dick Van Dyke

  4. fan says:

    A Designing Women reunion without the late Dixie Carter and Meshach Taylor would just be too sad for me.

    Wait, is Greg Gunberg allowed to work on something without JJ Abrams? (Don’t get me wrong, I’ve enjoyed him since Felicity, it just always seems weird to see him in something non-Abrams lol)

    So I guess Match Game will not be a part of ABC’s Sunday Fun & Games block anymore in the summer of 2017 for which I predict that the self proclaimed Will Arnett reboot of The Gong Show will take it’s place instead.

    Just a thought.
