Another YouTube goodie: Match Game (1989) pilot intro
Sadly, all this is is just the opening. But it may well be the most interesting element of the Bert Convy pilot, all in all; as you'll see, it was a 1990-style takeoff on the classic '70s intro. As much as I personally liked the "slot machine" intro we eventually got (it was nice and creative), I kinda wish they'd stuck with this for the eventual Ross Schaffer series.
See for yourself!
How much would I actually have watched Match Game 90 if it was with Bert Convy? A lot so every episode, maybe even twice. I think Bert would have been the best MG host for at least back then, who knows how he would have worked with some of the celebrities they had on.
