Her bawdy bon mots will be missed. I loved watching “Match Game” as a child; I felt like I had been invited to sit at the adult’s table, even if the double entendres were over my head. It probably would’ve helped to have been drunk, like Somers and the rest of the panelists always seemed to be.
Here’s how Somers described the show:
“You’d get six people who are not smart, don’t know what they’re doing, put them on a panel, and find two contestants off the street, and ask them dopey questions.”
Have a cocktail on us, Brett. And tell Charles hello.
