Time for a Rematch! The Comedy Network Orders Second Season of MATCH GAME
- Darrin Rose returns as host; Seán Cullen and Debra DiGiovanni are back as regular panellists
- Montreal’s Zone3 to shoot another 60 episodes in Toronto this summer
This year, no blanks shall remain unfilled as The Comedy Network orders a second season of the retro-classic comedy game show MATCH GAME from FremantleMedia. Set to shoot for the first time in Toronto this summer, another 60 episodes of the half-hour comedy series have been ordered. Produced in association with Montreal’s Zone3, Season 2 of MATCH GAME premieres exclusively on Comedy this fall. Oshawa-born stand-up Darrin Rose is back for another round as host, and is again joined by wisecracking regular panellists Canadian comedy legend Seán Cullen, and beloved stand-up Debra DiGiovanni.
Season 1 of MATCH GAME featured an extraordinary roster of comedy all-stars including Samantha Bee, Scott Thompson, Tom Green, Caroline Rhea, Andy Kindler, Yvette Nicole Brown, Janeane Garofalo, Jeremy Hotz, and Greg Grunberg, among others. Since the series premiere on Oct. 15, 2012, more than nine million viewers have watched the original Canadian series, while approximately two million Canadians continue to watch MATCH GAME each week. Viewers can relive the first round of shenanigans Monday – Friday at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Comedy.
