    Just recently I extended my cable service and so now get the Game Show Network. As a result, I have rediscovered Match Game which I had not watched sinced the early 80s. What a fun show! Charles Nelson Reilly, Brett Somers, and Gene Rayburn are the regulars that keep everybody laughing. I also very fondly remember Reilly guest starring in a number of TV shows in the 70s. He is definitely a memorable character from my childhood.

    RIP Charles. We'll miss you!

    Yeah.... but he wasn't the ghost. He was the agent of Mrs Muir? Something like that.

    RIP Charles.

    Yeah she was an author? Artist? Something like that. And I think the ghost was played by Edward Mulhern? Not sure where the heck out of the dark recesses of my brain that came! Oops, close Edward Mulhare.

    He was also a survivor of the Hartford circus fire years ago that killed so many people.

    I enjoyed his humor. An old boyfriend of mine got his autograph for me about 20 yrs ago. He signed a stuffed alligator wearing a little t-shirt for me! It got ruined in a flooding situation here.

    I'm glad he lived a long life. RIP CNR.

    I loved CNR on Match Game. He used to make me laugh all the time.

    Remember when Richard Dawson was allowed to smoke on the show? Good grief, how times have changed!!!!

    RIP, Charles, we will miss you!

    Cypros,
    The Match Game was one of my favorite shows during the 70's. Wayyyyyy back then, I run into the house after school, turn on the TV and watch the Match Game before dinner. Reilly was a great comedian known for his one liners. He will be missed.
    May he rest in peace.

    I LOVED Charles on Match Game! I grew up on this show and was thrilled when Game show network came out and had the old reruns of Match Game..... Charles and Brett.... oh how they cracked me up!

    It is sad that this 'era' is slowly dying...... Gene Rayburn passed away a few years ago and now Charles.... I have to say that Charles was 'gay' before 'gay' was cool.... (no offence intended to anyone) I am just trying to make a point that he didn't care back in the 70's that people knew he was gay..... he was who he was...... a man before his time!

    May he dance with the angels and make them laugh all day!
