* OutOfOrder: The two halves of the July 10, 2016 episode were broadcast the other way around than how they were actually filmed.

*** The 2016 revival is largely identical to the original (even with an orange rotating box, albeit a CGI one), but refers to the game as "the star-studded Match Game".



** '''2016- ''': Largely identical to the 1973-82 opening (even with an orange rotating box, albeit a CGI one), but "star-studded, big money" became just "star-studded".
