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.

In the wake of CNR's passing, I bought the "Best of Match Game" 4-DVD set, and I thoroughly entertained a dinner party by playing the commentary of Brett Somers through the show's highlights.

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

RIP. 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.

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.

I always loved her on that show. 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.

I was able to stomach perhaps ten minutes of this "comedy". It was truly horrid. Gary Unmarried on the other hand, was laugh out loud funny at moments. (so, if you are looking to Tivo something funny, I'd recommend it)
