Trivia

In 1981, tension between host Richard Dawson and producer Howard Felsher reached a boiling point and Richard threw Howard off the set and wanted Mark Goodson to fire him. Goodson decided on a compromise by making Howard an executive producer, thus he would not be on the set anymore. As the shows 7th season was underway in 1982, Richard's daughter-in-law Cathy Hughart Dawson was promoted to Producer. See more »

FEUD IS FUN AND VERY FUNNY
7 August 2000 | by (Fort Lauderdale, Florida) – See all my reviews

This Old Classic tradition from the match game spin-off is wonderful, it has two families battle out in a survey of 100 people, to get cash and prizes, they play fast money, the host will ask the contestant five question give them five answers in 15 seconds try and think of the most popular answer, it the two get 200 points they walk away with the $5,000 grand prize or the $10,000 grand prize in the syndicated version, if they failed to get 200 points they recieve 5 dollars a point.

This is a great show, better than Louie Anderson's Revival. TV REVIEW 4 STARS.
