"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.

In early 1988, CBS picked up the rights for a daytime version of Family Feud. Mark Goodson talked to Michael Brockman, the TV executive who left ABC and was running Daytime programming for CBS, for reactivating Family Feud for CBS. Goodson made it clear he did not want to bring Richard Dawson back, it was clear that whatever difficulties they encountered there was still some bitterness left. 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.

First off, I must say that this is a fun game show. Also, I'm not sure if I've seen every episode. However, I do know the show very well. Every time I've watched it, I've had a lot of fun playing along and watching. While it was still in production, this made me long to be a contestant. The thing I like most about it are the questions. Despite the fact that I don't know that many answers, I still have fun playing along. I hope the Game Show Network keeps it on so I can play along and watch for years to come. If that happens, I will be really happy. Before I wrap this up, I'd like to say that I'll always remember this show in my memory forever. Now, in conclusion, I hope that you catch it one day before it goes off the air for good.
