Yes, it is Family Feud (although the host is not nearly as annoying as Richard Dawson, and doesn't kiss all the women). But as a Spanish language student, I find it a very useful tool for learning. At first, it's difficult to follow, like any other show with rapid speech. But, after awhile, you'll find you can follow it. And what you'll find is a great source of expressions and vocabulary, prioritized by popularity.
For example, a few days ago the question was: name another way to say "Pienso que...". Of course, "Creo que..." was the number one answer. But some that I would have thought reasonable answers ("Supongo ...") were not in the top 4, some were mentioned that I would not have thought of but are connected in native Spanish speakers minds ("Tal vez"), and others that made sense but I would not have thought of came up ("Imagino que...").
So, it's not the most dignified show on TV. But if you want to improve your Spanish, check it out.
