GSN Presents a Tribute to MATCH GAMES' Beloved Panelists Brett Somers and Charles Nelson Reilly

Panelists Match-Off on Their Best MATCH GAME Episodes During the Week of February 20th on GSN

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Jan. 31 -- GSN will feature Brett Somers and Charles Nelson Reilly at their most outrageous, most argumentative, most bitingly sarcastic, and funniest on "The Best of Brett & Charles" during MATCH GAME "That '70s Hour" the week of February 20 at 11:00 PM and 11:30 PM ET/PT.

Brett Somers and Charles Nelson Reilly became staples on MATCH GAME in the mid-70s with their eccentric, yet compelling personalities. What started as a guest appearance for Somers with her husband, Jack Klugman (Odd Couple), surprisingly turned into a regular spot. Her whit cemented a perfect mix of panelists on the new show.

Reilly, a theatre actor turned game show regular, made the fireworks really fly with his quick come-backs and quirky sensibilities. Somers and Reilly became cult-icons of the much loved game show and now can be seen at their best on GSN.

Below is the schedule for MATCH GAME "The Best of Brett and Charles" and original episodes air dates.
