Game show in which 6 guest stars (which change from week to week) are given a humorous phrase with one word missing. The stars write down a word they think would be most appropriate for the missing word, and then two contestants try to guess what the stars have chosen. A point is given for each correct match, and the one with the most points wins. Written by
It may have been Richard Dawson's charm on "Match Game 73" that prompted its creators 'Mark Goodson' and Bill Todman to build him a game show all his own: ABC Television's Family Feud (1976). Dawson wound up doing double duty for "Feud" and "Match Game 76 (1976)" before leaving the "Match Game 78 (1978)" panel in 1978 to devote full time to "Feud" for the next 7 seasons to 1985-1986.

This show proves that game shows were actually fun once! Even though this game doesn't tax your brain like Millionaire, you also don't feel like falling asleep in the middle of it. I've found myself more than once practically falling on the floor laughing at the hijinks of Richard Dawson, Brett Somers, Charles Nelson Reilly, Gene Rayburn, Betty White, Fannie Flagg, Patti Deutch, etc. The list could go on forever.
This show has produced more funny, memorable moments than all the episodes of Friends and Frasier put together. If you've ever seen the Admiral Color TV incident or the "nipple" incident, you know what I mean.
The only thing that ruined this show was the star wheel. People were getting sick of the contestants always picking Richard for the Big Money Super Match that they came up with this stupid star wheel that picked a celebrity for you. Bad move.
Thank God for these people that were willing to completely let loose and keep us entertained for years and years to come!!!!!
