Personal Quote:

[on hosting Family Feud (1988)]: I'm real excited about being on CBS and hosting this show. I have been studying all of the great CBS shows. I think I'm prepared, so if you're ready, let's have the first item up for bids. See more »

Trivia:

Though he was very happy in meeting the families on Family Challenge (1995), he really wasn't very happy with this hosting project on cable, because for him to revitalized his career as a game show host, he had to start all over again, waiting for bigger and better opportunities, when he actually had committed suicide.
