"Get ready to match the stars... (insert celebrities' names) as we play the star-studded Match Game 2010! And now, here's the host of Match Game 2010, CHRISTOPHER KNIGHT!"

Match Game 2010 is an unsold game show pilot of a revival of the classic game show that was hosted by Christopher Knight, announced by Rich Fields, produced by FremantleMedia North America, and it was one of the two attempts to replace As the World Turns on CBS, the other was The Talk. Only two pilots are taped on April 8, 2010, at the Bob Barker Studio at CBS Television City.

GameplayEdit

The gameplay's format is a combination of the 1973-82 and 1990 versions of Match Game itself.
