Did You Know?

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 »

The last episode of "The New Family Feud" with Ray Combs was both funny and a little sad, 8 September 2010
Author: tavm from Baton Rouge, La.

I previously reviewed the original Richard Dawson run of "Family Feud", then the first episode of the 2nd run with Ray Combs. Now, I'm reviewing the very last one hosted by him with the returning champs the Beckwiths competing against the Trans. Combs seemed to be a little more excited than I remember him being when I watched his hosting stint in first-run syndication and CBS back then. Anyway, the Trans end up in the Fast Money round with the second contestant getting 0 points-of which he passed on three of the questions-leaving Ray to say "I've been doing this for 6 years now and this is the first time I've had someone who got no points. I'd say it's a damn fine way to go out. I thought I was a loser till you came in and made me feel like a man." Apparently, however, it wasn't better enough for him to stay to talk to the two families like he usually did when the show ends as he left just after saying, "See you next time" as there wouldn't be one. Two years later, after getting in an accident, losing his comedy club businesses, and then his wife and kids leaving him-and despite hosting a new game show called "Family Challenge", Ray Combs would hang himself in a mental hospital. What a sad end to what seemed to be a charmed life during his run on "Family Feud". One hopes he didn't suffer too badly when he made the decision...
