Match Game: The Pilot (1 of 1)

Before the series hit CBS, a pilot was needed to be made to see how the series worked on the screen. The Pilot was made and became a big hit. I’m testing out he Match Game Website’s bandwidth, and I need your help, I would like you to download Match Game Pilot from 1973. I want to see what happens and see if the site can take so many downloads, The pilot does not include Slate.

    Pretty good, just wish the bonus round was available to watch though, see if it was much different from the actual series.

  11. MrAaronLadner says:

    My Favorte Version of Match Game is the 1990 Version with Ross Shafer.

  12. Tazzman says:

    I remember Match Game combined with Hollywood Squares but I do not think it lasted that long.

  13. spxmet says:

    The contestants are yummy!

  14. DENo1MatchGameFan says:

    Actually the show started with these bland questions during the first few weeks, then the fun began later on!

  15. torchkit says:

    I assume the contestants were actors.

  16. yaywhewclips242 says:

    Anyone have the Match Game 1990 pilot with Bert Convy?

  19. PatrioticLionLeo says:

    That’s the first time I’ve seen Burt arguing with Betty!

  20. fashionglindaguru says:

    Betty White is also in her usual spot.

  21. need4news says:

    Betty gets in a subtle dig at having her first answer dismissed by saying, “I don’t know if this is a match, Gene, the way YOU play the game.”


  22. gpciie says:

    The second is correct. Initial ratings were pretty bad, so the writers and production crew decided to spice things up. Ta-da! Thus was born the racy (and massively popular) Match Game.

  23. njr75003 says:

    Any chance you have them playing the Jackpot Match part of the game? I’d like to see how it played pre-series.

  24. quiznationrules says:

    This pretty much pre-dated Family Feud.

    Richard Dawson is the only person who is the original celebrity that’s sitting in his original seat in his original row. Something nice to see. Match Game is a good game.
