"Family Feud" was one of the most popular game shows on TV, but after nine years with Richard Dawson as host, ratings were starting to slip. In 1986, producers decided that the "Family Feud" needed a makeover, and they wanted a fresh face to breathe new life into this old favorite. "Family Feud" producer Howard Felsher remembered hearing great things about a talented young comic named Ray Combs. The late Mark Goodson chose Ray to host "The New Family Feud." It was a perfect match. Ray's down-home love for people was genuine. But pressures began to amount in 1994 as ratings on "Family Feud" began to slide following the death of Mark Goodson. Son, Jonathan Goodson and consultant Harris Kattleman decided to bring back original host Richard Dawson to try and boost ratings, but a drab set covering, low prize money and bad timeslots forced "Family Feud" back onto the shelf in 1995.

For this revival the set received a make over. The border around the board was now made out of red plastic. The Family name displays were now a blue background with roses, yellow letters, a red border, and a white frame. The carpet was changed to red and included a yellow logo with red letters. The Family Podiums and Face-Off podium have red around the top, sides, bottom. The Face-Off podium the buzzers are also red and displayed a red, orange, and yellow spectrum when lit up. The numbered side for answers was colored yellow and the ones that weren't in play were blue with white dots to blend in with the board. The background changed to yellow. Basically, everything in this version of Family Feud is virtually the same as the original version. See more »
You need 105 points. If 105 people said milk, out of a survey of 100 people , this show is illegal, and we're all going to be on a documentary in 20 years.

The Ray Combs era of Family Feud was by far the best, I really didn't care for Richard Dawson, or that blob gambler Louie Anderson, and the current host Al Borland errr Richard Karn's version isn't up to par and I hope it goes soon. Ray Combs was full of energy and made it fun 88'-92' were the best shows. I was sad when they changed the format and even sadder to hear about Ray's death, he was one of the most underappreciated hosts/comics of all time. I will never forget this era of game shows which was a great time. There will never be another Ray Combs or any era of game show which we grew up with, I feel sorry if you weren't around for this era.
R.I.P. Ray Combs.
