Y!: # 1 Posted on 17.9.07 1521.44 | Instant Rating: 8.31 Best known as a "Match Game" panelist. I'd expect a tribute of some kind on GSN. She was always good for an off-color quip and could hold her own against the likes of Charles Nelson Reilly. That couldn't have been easy. Reward TV -- TV just got better! Ars Gratia Pecuniae.

Hopefully Brett, Charles, and Gene are making fun of Dumb Dora together somewhere.

I can't get enough Match Game, and her and Charles were so good together. I'm hoping for the appropriate tribute, if only so I can watch a bunch of Match Games this weekend.

AIM: # 5 Posted on 17.9.07 1925.00 | Instant Rating: 5.41 Brett Somers reminded me of my grandmother - voice, appearance, personality, everything. It amused me when I was a kid and made watching the reruns extremely bittersweet since her passing in 2000. This news therefore makes me sad on a very unique level.

Such a shame. RIP. EDIT: I just realized, she was only 83? That means she was in her early 50s on Matchgame? Good lord she looked in her late 60s back then. (edited by StaggerLee on 17.9.07 2052)

GSN is doing a Brett tribute this Saturday.
http://www.tvsquad.com/2007/06/26/un...to-television/ Yes!! Even though it apparently won't look or sound like the old show, something is better than nothing. Watching old stories on youtube has really whetted my appetite for more. EDIT:
