GSN Honors the Beloved 'Match Game' Panelist Brett Somers With a Special Marathon on Saturday, September 22 From 9 am to 5 pm ET

Network will Also Showcase Somer's 1971 'Password' Appearance on Sunday Night September 23

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Sept. 17 -- Brett Somers, the popular "Match Game" panelist who died Saturday, September 15, will be honored by GSN in an all-day marathon Saturday, September 22. The Somers' "Match Game" tribute will air from 9 AM to 4 PM ET and will feature some of the best moments from her years of work on one of America's all-time favorite game shows. Immediately following the "Match Game" marathon, GSN's original documentary THE REAL MATCH GAME STORY: BEHIND THE BLANK airs from 4 PM to 5 PM ET.

Additionally, on Sunday night (Monday morning) September 23 at 3:30 AM ET, GSN will air an episode of Password from 1971 where she appeared with then-husband Jack Klugman, as the other celebrity guest.

GSN's Somers "Match Game" marathon includes 14 episodes of the show originally broadcast between 1973 and 1982. Classic moments will include one that features Somers singing like guest Ethel Merman; one where Somers decides she's "had enough" and another when fellow panelist Jimmie Walker stands up for her when the audience taunts her. Best known for her dry witty humor, Somers was also the subject of "Match Game' questions. For example, one episode will include the question -- "When Brett went streaking, everybody ____ed."

GSN's original special THE REAL MATCH GAME STORY: BEHIND THE BLANK takes a look at "Match Game" from its rise to fame until its end in 1982. Narrated by Jamie Farr, the special includes interviews with Richard Dawson, Somers, Marcia Wallace, Betty White and Walker; numerous staff members from the classic series and one of the last interviews given by the series' legendary host, Gene Rayburn.

The original "Match Game" series continues to air as part of the GSN line-up. "Match Game" airs Monday-Friday at 11:00 AM and 2:30 PM ET. On the weekends, it airs at 11:00 AM ET.

(A videoclip representing GSN's Somers tribute will be available at http://www.gsn.com by the end of business today.)
