          Thursday night’s acts include a quick-change magic act, a hula-hooping marvel who travels on rings, a drummer who can literally drum on anything and a group of waterless swimmers.
         At the end of the show, the winning act with the highest judges’ scores
will receive a fabulous The Gong Show trophy and a check for $2,000 and
18 cents.

          Then at 9 PM, Alec Baldwin returns to host the new season of Match Game. “Kenan Thompson, Niecy Nash, Thomas Lennon, Caroline Rhea, Mark Duplass, Constance Zimmer” – Six celebrities are on deck, the drinks are poured, and Alec Baldwin has the iconic skinny mic in hand for a hilarious hour of non-stop BLANK!
          The iconic game show features four contestants each week vying for the chance to win $25,000, as they attempt to match the answers of six celebrities in a game of fill-in-the-missing-blank. 
          Joining the celebrity panelists are contestants Cheryl Humphrey (hometown: North Little Rock, Arkansas), Lindsay Oetken (hometown: Surrey, North Dakota), Jared Barry (hometown: Farmingdale, New York) and Gena Kizer (hometown: Houston, Texas)
