ABC's press release confirms that Match Game will return for a third season.
The network has also signed Alec Baldwin to a deal on possible new projects. I think this might be an iffy idea, because Baldwin is an iffy kind of guy. On a good day he draws as many detractors as fans, and his personal life has been turbulent, to say the least. But maybe ABC has some iffy and turbulent projects in mind, and Baldwin might seem perfect for them.
The show itself is okay. It won't make anybody forget the Gene Rayburn 1973-82 classic, but it's a pleasant way to pass the time. Ratings for the second season were only so-so, but ABC can't afford to turn up its nose at so-so numbers. Anything that doesn't stink to Nielsen's high heaven might get renewed at the alphabet net (Variety speak!)
I remember seeing "sometime in 2018" as the landing date for the third season. I assume the orange shag carpet will be back.
A commenter points out that Celebrity Family Feud and 100K Pyramid got new seasons, too. These shows have usually pulled better numbers and were pretty close to locks for renewal.
