Alec Baldwin is no Steve Harvey. Unlike Harvey, Baldwin seems diminished on the set of a retro '70s game show dedicated to getting contestants to say gently dirty nonsense.

Improbably, ABC's reboot of the series has done a great job in recreating the loose vibe of the original.

[Alec] Baldwin surprised me with how easily he slipped into the host role, not giving any whiff that it was a "step down" for a two-time Emmy-winning actor.

It's just not as good as my beloved '70s version. Nobody sparks the same joy in me as Gene or Richard or Charles or the queen of Match Game, Patti Deutsch.

I thought [Match Game] was EXTREMELY charming.

The producers, and ABC, largely got this right.
