Trivia

Using Match Game (1973) as an inspiration for a new show, Mark Goodson came up with "Fast Company". Fast Company didn't have families, a feud, or surveys but otherwise it was the same show. The show was a pitched to NBC and at the end of the run-though NBC passed on it. Mark Goodson resolved he'd make NBC regret the day they passed on "Fast Company" and took his project to the ABC network. Michael Brockman, then V.P. of Daytime programming of the ABC network, wasn't impressed, but he dealt with _Mark Goodson-Bill Todman Productions [us]_ before and knew something would happen from the time he saw the show and the time it would go on the air. Goodson continued to tinker with the format, making the contestants family members and changing the name of the game to Family Feud. See more »

Out of nowhere came a welcome reminder of Philly sports glory.
31 January 2003 | by FeverDogSee all my reviews

It was 3:00 a.m. when "Family Feud" came on the Game Show Network - it was an episode from, apparently, late 1980, since it was a charity rematch between World Series contestants Kansas City Royals and Philadelphia Phillies: the Phillies Phamily's Del Unser, Larry Bowa, Mike Schmidt, Dick Ruthven, and Garry Maddox vs. John, Willie, Paul, Dave, and Dennis from KC (I didn't get their last names).

True to form, the Phillies swept KC 395-0. Del & Dick played the bonus round, where they reached 222 points with just seven questions. Would they have had any less than a total kickass half-hour?

Highlights included one of the Royals offering Richard Dawson some Skoal chewing tobacco (which he spat out in disgust, but he was a trooper even to try it), the numerous whistles and catcalls for Michael Jack from the presumably female-dominated studio audience, and, oh my, the leisure suits, feathered hair, and bizarre facial growths (and Bowa's funky White Man's Afro deserves special mention). Needless to say, my head was spinning. Bill Simmons (ESPN's "Sports Guy") needs to know about this episode to grade it on his Unintentional Comedy Rating Scale; it'd surely get a perfect score.
