Notes[]

  1. Both hosts used microphones with windscreens, compared to in the series. The Match Game portion had three contestants competing instead of two. Presumably, contestants entered from the three steps that are placed in front of the giant wall on the center stage. The nameplates for the panelists were gray instead of red. The backdrop was completely blue, lacking the magenta. The set for the Hollywood Squares had way more blue than in the series, lacking yellow and red. The Head-to-Head Match was played differently: The player would choose a celebrity and either X or O. One tab revealed the celebrity, while the other revealed a dollar amount. Finding the dollar amount added to the pot, and allowed the player to keep choosing celebrities and tabs. Finding the name would result in the contestant playing the round with the celebrity. If the board was cleared, the contestant would play the round with the last celebrity he or she picked for up to $100,000.
  2. Premiere week. The show began its 9-month run at 3:00 p.m. EST, replacing the Merrill Heatter Production Fantasy, which was hosted by Peter Marshall, the original M.C. of The Hollywood Squares, and came on after the NBC Soap Another World. Since this was the premiere week, the returning champion in the Hollywood Squares portion was determined by drawing lots backstage, and Stacy Turner was chosen. Super Match wins: $500 (Jimmie) on Monday, $1,000 (Bill) on Tuesday, $250 (Jon) on Wednesday, $500 (Bill) on Thursday, and $1,000 (Twyla) on Friday. Head-to-Head Match wins: None on Monday, $10,000 (Alison) on Tuesday, $5,000 (Alison) on Wednesday, $10,000 (Tom) on Thursday, and $20,000 (Bill) on Friday.
  3. Square patterns now added on back side of answer cards for Match Game. Jon Bauman and Gene Rayburn are now introduced by Gene Wood for Hollywood Squares and Super Match respectively, with new camera angles accompanying these. Bauman now introduces the three new celebrities on the top row in the Squares portion. Halfway through this week, music now stops at the beginning of the Squares portion. Also halfway through this week, the edges on Bauman's podium in Squares are now yellow. Super Match wins: $250 (Bonnie) on Monday, $1,000 (Shannon) on Tuesday, $1,000 (Ed) on Wednesday, $1,000 (Jon) on Thursday, and strikeout on Friday. Head-to-Head Match wins: $5,000 (Shannon) on Monday, none on Tuesday, none on Wednesday, none on Thursday, and $2,000 (Ed; $100x20) on Friday.
  4. Platform for Hollywood Squares portion extends somewhat. Alternate theme music now plays during mid-show bumper halfway through this week. Super Match wins: $1,000 (Richard) on Monday, $1,000 (Marty) on Tuesday, $1,000 (Paul) on Wednesday, $1,000 (Edie) on Thursday, and $1,000 (Lydia) on Friday. Head-to-Head Match wins: None on Monday, $30,000 (Marty) on Tuesday, $30,000 (Gloria) on Wednesday, none on Thursday, and none on Friday. Blase Dorocco becomes the first player to win the top prize in Head-to-Head, and did it twice in the same week two days in a row! He is also the biggest winner at this point with $62,950.
  5. New bell sound to indicate that time is up. Preempted on November 24, 1983 for a Football game with the Pittsburgh Steelers Vs. the Detroit Lions. Super Match wins: $1,000 (Rebecca) on Monday, $1,000 (Rebecca) on Tuesday, $1,000 (Jim) on Wednesday, and $500 (Rebecca) on Friday. Head-to-Head Match wins: $10,000 (Jon) on Monday, none on Tuesday, $10,000 (Alison) on Wednesday, and none on Friday.
  6. Match Game and Hollywood Squares question cards now a darker shade of green and sky blue respectively. X's and O's in the back of the Hollywood Squares set now light up to indicate whose turn it was. Beginning-of-show explanation dropped. About halfway through, the green Round 2 toaster has been changed to red. Bill Carroll retired undefeated after five games on Friday with $26,825, so a new "returning champion" had to be selected. It was decided to bring back Laurie Ghose from the first week, who was disadvantaged, during her original run of three shows. After Laurie retired undefeated on Wednesday with $26,875, Felicia Eccles was selected from the drawing of lots. Super Match wins: $1,000 (Audrey) on Monday, $500 (Shawn) on Tuesday, $250 (Audrey), on Wednesday, $500 (Arsenio) on Thursday, and $1,000 (Jim) on Friday.

  8. Johnny Olson fills in for Gene Wood. Blue portions of Squares podiums darker. Halfway through, the credits chatter is moved to a wide shot of the panel as opposed to the set.

  9. Gene Wood returns and platform in Match portion moved. On Friday, the video wall is decked out with Christmas trees. Gene reveals that there are 2,304 light bulbs on 768 squares (3 bulbs for each). Despite losing her final game on Monday, Cyndi Kave left with an incredible total of $44,425.

  10. Leave It to Beaver week. Gallagher was here to fill the rule of "one comedian per week". The nametags get changed half-way through each episode to reflect the names of the characters. This week was one of, if not the very last TV appearance of Richard Deacon, who died on August 8, 1984. Mini-squares have been added to Bauman's podium in Squares. Super Match wins: $500 (Ken) on Monday, $1,000 (Jon) on Tuesday, $1,000 (Frank) on Wednesday, $1,000 (Jon) on Thursday, and $500 (Frank). Head-to-Head Match wins: None all week long.

  15. Opening banter between Gene & Jon dropped, and both co-hosts now just go straight to their positions; iris-out added on Tuesday. Plugs for a Telephone Match, giving home viewers the opportunity to win $5,000, and have a walk-on on an NBC Soap Opera, were shown all this week. This contest somewhat duplicated the phone contest on the original The Match Game. After Ron Barnes retired undefeated on Tuesday with $7,475, Jeanette Jennings was selected from the drawing of lots. Super Match wins: $1,000 (Nipsey) on Monday, $1,000 (Gloria) on Tuesday, $1,000 (Jon) on Wednesday, $1,000 (Gloria) on Thursday, and *Friday's show missing; Adrienne won $625 in Squares and $1,000 in Super Match.* Head-to-Head Match wins: None on Monday, none on Tuesday, $20,000 (Gloria) on Wednesday, none on Thursday, and *Friday's show missing; there was no win.*.

  17. George Gobel has a cane on Monday, but it was decided to have him appear at the panel area at the beginning from Tuesday onward. Halfway through on Wednesday, the camera now cuts to a celebrity chosen for Super Match, instead of zooming in. The first five Telephone Match winners were announced this week for February Sweeps.
