The top 3 answers on the board..."Name the best incarnation of 'Family Feud.'"
SURVEY SAYS: Richard's Feud. Richard was and ever shall be the true host of "Family Feud." Richard's quick wit and overall likeable personallity made this show click. I'd pick this show over "Fear Factor" or "Weakest Link" any day. In this world of primetime "game shows" (if you can call them that anymore) you don't see the kind of aoura that this show presents. 2 actual families comprised of 5 members each must guess popular answers to a 100 person survey. The first team to 200 points (300 by 1979, and 400 by 1985) wins the game, the cololected survey money and chance to play "Fast Money" for $5,000. ($10,000 on the syndicated version) When the show ended its run thanks to "Wheel of Fortune" in 1985, it featured one of the most tear-filled good byes in TV history. "Family Feud" is an American icon. One that will resonate through ages.
