Showmatch is a popular Argentine television program, currently broadcast by Channel 13. It replaced the comedy show Videomatch in 2004, and from 2006 has produced the dancing contest Bailando por un sueño ("Dancing for a Dream"), along with similar contests such as Cantando por un Sueño ("Singing for a Dream"), Patinando por un Sueño ("Skating for a Dream"), and El Musical de tus Sueños ("The Music of your Dreams"). In 2009, it presented "Gran Cuñado" ("Big Brother-in-Law"), a parody of the reality show Big Brother.
Showmatch is one of Argentina's most-watched programs, and scored as the country's highest-rated TV show in 2010 and 2011. It has played host to a number of celebrity guests from around the world, including former boxer Mike Tyson and footballer Ronaldinho. However, the show has also been an ongoing source of controversy, and has been accused of sexual discrimination and the objectification of women.
