Name something that squirts when you least expect it. Jersey Joe and his friends play a round of the ’80s Family Feud Challenge to see why this game is still so popular today.
Family Feud went on the air in 1976 with host Richard Dawson. Feud is a spin-off of the Super Match round from another popular 70’s game show Match Game, where Dawson was a popular panelist.
Dawson hosted the show until 1985. He also returned for a single season in 1994. Since Dawson, several other hosts have taken over, with Steve Harvey, the most recent, receiving the series highest syndicated ratings ever since he took over in 2010.
Feud originally aired on the ABC television network. It moved to CBS in the 1980’s and has is currently seen in syndication on local stations, as it always has been.
Feud is also seen in around the world and has been named the 3rd greatest TV game show of all time.
But, once again we see how the times have changed. While the 5 answers on the board are still correct today, there are a few more, modern answers that would have definitely made the list.
Name: Family Feud
What: TV game show
On air since: 1976
JERSEY JOE RECOMMENDS
I love Family Feud. If you are a regular viewer of this blog, then you most surely know that. This is the first time we’ve tried playing a round of the 1980’s version. Family Feud is better as a half hour version. The only exception where this show should air as an hour are the celebrity prime time specials.
