When ABC announced that they were rebooting The Match Game for 10 episodes this summer with Alec Baldwin hosting, we practically blanked in our blanks. Would it be as naughty as the classic ‘70s version?

Can you ever top a game show that allowed its panelists smoke and blank on set? And most importantly, who could ever fill those six seats previously warmed by giants like Jack Klugman, Brett Somers and blank Convy?

We have some ideas. Do they match yours?

ABC owes us for taking away Happy Endings and they can make amends by hiring the Hotwives of Orlando & Vegas scream to serve up some perfectly impromptu answers as a warm-up to her (fingers crossed) potential fall sitcom, Hail Mary.

As far as reality stars go, the Skinny Girl Housewife of New York has never held her tongue or been shy about sexy stuff. So just imagine how ribald her replies could be. And then imagine Baldwin being left speechless.

Every great game show needs a gay and the former Tonight Show intern-turned-E! red carpet gnome is the most stereotypically flamboyant accessory this side of Charles Nelson Reilly’s ascots.

As emcee of Comedy Central’s celebrity roasts, Ross knows how to handle a dais of unruly types. Plus, his refusal to be politically correct could really fire up audiences during the most insane election cycle ever.

Ever since her first appearance on those VH1 countdown shows, we’ve known that this woman was destined for better than a co-hosting gig on The Real. #FreeLoni

A little O.G. sitcom royalty never hurt anyone, and Mrs. Brady has proven that she is not above getting a little bawdy for laughs (See: Fifty Shades of Black and Naked Gun 33 1/3).

Are people still shocked to hear that the Fuller House dad is actually a scorchingly NSFW comic? Just wait until they see what he would have to say about Dumb Dora. TGI-WTF?!

His 30 Rock scumbag Frank Rossitano lost a game of Colonizers of Malaar to Baldwin’s Jack Donaghy, so this would be a perfect time to stage a re-Match of sorts.

It’s hard out there for a shrimp and now that The Muppets are probably not coming back, the crustacean could really use a job. A Deadliest Catch isn’t hiring.
