    You also have the sickness of knowing too much about Match Game. I even remember the lame 1990s version that had Judy Tenuta and John Salley on it all the time.

    Would Howie Mandell be better as host or the Richard Dawson chair? :)

    FYI: Brett Somers is still kicking around and doing well, thank you. So, we actually can do this:
    1st seat: Kevin Sorbo/Brad Garrett/Eddie Cibran
    2nd seat: Brett Somers
    3rd seat: CNR
    4th seat: Micha Barton/Morgan Fairchild/Elizabeth Barkley
    5th seat: Dawson (he has to do this) or Betty White
    6th seat: Fannie Flagg, damnmit!
    The host? Well, we'll have to dig Gene up, place his head on a robotic body, hand him his skinny microphone and let him do his schtick.

    Who knows, maybe Brian Billick can be a resident contestant on the show, if the Ravens don't improve this year with McNair under center??

    Isn't Richard Dawson dead, too? Then again, my knowledge of CNR's marital status turned out to be shit, so whadda I know?

    I even saw a news report once that he was dead. Must not have seen the correction. I still stand by Whoopi.

    Dawson is alive at age 74 and prepared to make miserable the life of anyone who hires him. His diva-like behavior caused huge backstage problems at Family Feud and Match Game.

    A link for anyone interested in TV game shows:

    You sure you're not thinking of Ray Combs?

    No, I know Ray Combs killed himself. I had seen a news report that Dawson had died around 2004. Oh well, credibility all shot to hell. BTW, Dawson's current wife was apparently a contestant on Family Feud. I hope GSN shows the shows on which she appeared so we can tell if there is apparent chemistry.

    Forgive me for the unpleasant (and frankly racist) nature of the Match Game questions I am about to post, but it really aired and they were so outrageous that I remember it to this day.

    Dumb Donald was so dumb ... (how dumb was he?) ... when he went to Notre Dame on a football scholarship, he asked the coach if he could be the ___BLANK___ back.
    Most people answered "hunch," which makes sense. Marcia Wallace (redhead secretary from the Bob Newhart Show) said, "wet." Swear to God.

    Another of my favorites. Marge said, "It's tough being married to a bowler. Last night at dinner, he put three fingers in the ____BLANK_____ and rolled it down the hall."
    Most people said "roast" or "turkey." Fine answers. Richard Dawson said, "hostess."

    I am quite positive I saw him display the shocker on more than one occasion on his show.
