Trivia

The new Face-Off and family podiums from the 2006-2007 season had received a make over during the season. The Family podiums got sports style score boards on the middle of them that resemble the Family Podiums update that lasted from 1992-95 on the CBS era of Family Feud (1988). The Face-Off podium got rid of the lights that looked like and lit up like the survey board from the Dawson and Combs eras and got new ones that are blue not lighten up and a brighter white when they are lighten up.

Steve Harvey Has Turned the Show Into a Hit
13 September 2012 | by (St. Louis Park, MN) – See all my reviews

Since the current version of Family Feud debuted in 1999, there have been four hosts. starting with Louie Anderson who was awful, except for his sign off "Be good to your family." He was replaced by Richard Karn, who despite his lack of hosting experience was a slight improvement over Anderson. They came John O'Hurley and the show became even better to watch.

When O'Hurley decided to leave the show, FremantleMedia made the right decision in hiring Steve Harvey as host. His energy, enthusiasm and very funny interaction with the contestants have turned the marginally rated game show into a hit. Ratings shot up nationally by 40% since Harvey became host and a number of stations (including Minneapolis-St. Paul) have moved Family Feud into much better time slots.

My parents and I usually watch the show when we have dinner on Thursday nights and to me, Harvey is definitely the right host for the show. Unlike a number of comedians who hosted game shows, he doesn't over power the families and he's very quick witted and thinks on his feet so well, which is important for a successful game show host.

The only dislike I have about this current incarnation is that a lot of the questions have become raunchier than the last two versions. Also, they shouldn't have let announcer Burton Richardson go. He is a very good game show announcer and to me, replacing him with former N'Sync member Joey Fatone was a bad decision.

Fortunately, the ratings turnaround has sparked a renewal through 2015. Hopefully Harvey will still be hosting the show with one of the best formats ever invented.
