Trivia:

She was not originally on the celebrity panel of Match Game (1973). When her husband, Jack Klugman, appeared on the first week of the program in 1973, he suggested that producers bring her aboard. Her wit and dry humor proved extremely successful, and she would remain a regular panelist for the remainder of the show's nine year network and syndicated run. See more »
