IF ROSIE IS MATCH GAME'S HEART, HOST ALEC BALDWIN IS ITS DICK: This may be the one topic, until that movie with the ladies and the ghosts, which moves the needle around here this summer. So let's talk about this week, and, in particular, the hell was wrong with "rubber duckies in tubs" as a winner's circle clue (Things That Float) on Pyramid?  Linda Holmes has a theory, but that's just a dumb rule.

Also, there's awesome clues and then there's "your crooked tie," which is so perfect that I don't even need to say what the category was.

(Strahan still needs to improve on the lean-in-and-tell-them-the-one-clue-they-missed move, but he's learning. And never let Martha Stewart on that show again.)

Match Game was also good, but I am fearful for next week's No Rosie No Tituss experiment -- even if it has Josh Charles, Jack McBrayer, Leslie Jones, and Cheryl Hines.

added: Full list of contestants in the second round of Match Game tapings, including Josh Malina, Randall Park, Ellie Kemper, and a former large-state Governor who you betcha we're not discussing here.
