Two Match Games’ Head to Head Match

For optimal effect, prior to playing back the clip, above, read the set up, below…

Sadly, Gene Rayburn’s most popular incarnation of Match Game (1973 – 82), eventually, met an untimely death, mostly due to (likely avoidable) circumstances that had been beyond the control of the program’s bigshots.

Alas… Mr. Rayburn and his original panelist regulars… Brett Somers, Charles Nelson Reilly and Richard Dawson… along with staff announcer, Johnny Olson, have all since left us. One can only hope that their Earthly, witty personalities and heady chemistry live on in eternity… that these qualities have also made for a perfect, head to head match with their Maker.

In other words… what we speak of are five Matches Made in Heaven.

Fortunately, we now have a match made on Earth, too.

Since 2016, emcee Alec Baldwin and his writers… the kindred spirits of Rayburn and his clairvoyant writers… have been wittily building upon that bygone game show’s sturdy foundation, inclusive of updating the original, fake Dumb Donald.

Yes indeed, Real Dumb Donald scenarios play out regularly.

And, to be sure, panelist Rosie O’Donnell and her ongoing social media war with the Real Donald, can only add to the hilarity.

So, with all of these above-mentioned, up in heaven matters now duly noted, let’s scroll up to view our clip.

The Not Ready For Primetime (or any other time) Régime

The good news… TV ratings for NBC’s Saturday Night Live are up… way up. Nielson reports 10.6 million have been tuning in regularly… that figure representing an increase in viewership of 2 million.

The bad(?) news… SNL primarily owes its success to Alec Baldwin lampooning a downright failure of a man.

The worst(?) part… the butt of their jokes is paying far more attention to what’s happening within SNL’s studio 8H in Manhattan than… well… pretty much whatever else is going on in the rest of the world.

Is that totally bad?

No. Each and every time #45 is overreacting / going berserk on Twitter he’s also frittering away his four year term… meaning less time for him to FUBAR our global economy, ecology and society.

Of course, what those key problem areas do need the most is the positive, proactive attention and actions of a real leader… an empathetic, ethical, focused, genuine intellect… such as former President Barack Obama.

Of course, #45 is not such a man. NOPE, he could never live up to those presidential qualifications. Ergo, it’s just as well that he’s got his eyes glued to his TV every Saturday at 11:30 p.m.… is obsessing over and bouncing off the walls whenever SNL’s brilliant political satirists effortlessly get under his thin skin.

Yet, one cannot help but wonder…

If SNL elected to never lampoon #45 / his régime again, would that upset him even more?
