New Match Game Panel Is So Funny (How Funny Is It?!)

You all know how obsessed I am with the Match Game remake, right? Way back in January I was already asking for your suggestions for the inaugural panelists. Well, they've been announced, and in a way, they're as good as — if not better than — the ones I/we came up with.

MadTV alum Andrew Daly will serve as the new show's Gene Rayburn.What do you think? Will this funny fraternity fill your blanks?— Mickey O'Connor read more

Premise: `Dumb Dora was so dumb that...' is a typical lead-in to `fill-in-the-blank'-style queries asked of contestants seeking to match celebrities' answers.
