The SNL writers really nailed it last week with this sketch. Fans absolutely loved the skit that spoofed the '70s game show, the Match Game, along with impersonations of celebs during the time such as Brett Somers and Paul Lynde. But the best part of the skit (besides how ridiculously spot-on it was) was host Shia LaBoeuf's impersonation of the flamboyant magician, Doug Henning. The old school SNL feel of the whole thing was just magic.
Match Game perennial Brett Somers passed away yesterday at the age of 83. The cause of death was stomach and colon cancer, said Adam Klugman, her son with estranged spouse Jack Quincy Klugman. Besides the popular 1973-'79 game show, Somers is fondly remembered for her Odd Couple appearances as her husband's ex-wife.Tuesday's Today's News was written by Ben Katner.
