Trivia

During one practice of the show, the producers put in a survey question at the end of the game. After the run-through, Michael Brockman went to Mark Goodson and his staff and told them the front part of the game isn't that good, but he thought the survey question was terrific and asked Goodson if he could reformat the game around the survey material. Goodson agreed to change the structure of the game. In the new structure, two families would square off to guess the answers of survey questions, the first team to reach 200 points won the game and had a chance at more money. However, there was controversy over the fairness of the "steal". ABC president Fred Silverman wanted the "steal" to be dropped from the show Goodson however said the "steal" is what makes the game work and is the penalty for not having cleaned the board. In the end Goodson prevailed and the "steal" remained in the game. 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.
