Thinking about Family Feud

Family Feud has to be Lee's favorite game show as he watches it every day from 5 to 6 PM on Channel 9. Shows from previous seasons appear several times a week on the Game Show Network.  The show does have a history.  I remember watching it for the first time in July 1976 when I lived in New Brunswick, NJ.  Richard Dawson was the host at the beginning and stayed for many years.  The Wikipedia reports that the show has been on the air for 31 non-consecutive years with several hosts:
  • Richard Dawson
  • Ray Combs
  • Louie Anderson
  • Richard Karn
  • John O'Hurley
  • Steve Harvey
You can't argue with success as the show has been on s many years.  Some of the questions are thought provoking while others are just silly.  At times the various hosts have dominated the show too much.  Richard Dawson's kissing the female contestants was also silly at times.

I play the online version a few times a week on Facebook.
