Richard Dawson hosted this TV game-show, which pitted members of two families against each other. Each team tried to guess the results of survey questions faster and more accurately than the other team. Written by

There were some objections to Richard kissing strange women on national television. ABC tried to influence the kissing to stop, but Dawson rebelled and said he was going to do it. Mark Goodson asked people to write in and say in favor of kissing or not, the responses were overwhelmingly in favor of keeping the kissing on. See more »

Out of nowhere came a welcome reminder of Philly sports glory.
It was 3:00 a.m. when "Family Feud" came on the Game Show Network - it was an episode from, apparently, late 1980, since it was a charity rematch between World Series contestants Kansas City Royals and Philadelphia Phillies: the Phillies Phamily's Del Unser, Larry Bowa, Mike Schmidt, Dick Ruthven, and Garry Maddox vs. John, Willie, Paul, Dave, and Dennis from KC (I didn't get their last names).
True to form, the Phillies swept KC 395-0. Del & Dick played the bonus round, where they reached 222 points with just seven questions. Would they have had any less than a total kickass half-hour?
Highlights included one of the Royals offering Richard Dawson some Skoal chewing tobacco (which he spat out in disgust, but he was a trooper to even try it), the numerous whistles and catcalls for Michael Jack from the presumably female-dominated studio audience, and, oh my, the leisure suits, feathered hair, and bizarre facial growths (and Bowa's funky White Man's Afro deserves special mention). Needless to say, my head was spinning. Bill Simmons (ESPN's "Sports Guy") needs to know about this episode to grade it on his Unintentional Comedy Rating Scale; it'd surely get a perfect score.
