Trivia

For the 2006-2007 season, Family Feud has revamped the show with a new look, new host and a new set to celebrate its 30th Anniversary. The set is now in a round setting complete with a more traditional game board, face-off podium, and family podium. The look the show was going for is a throwback to the Dawson and Combs eras when the families posed inside a living room setting. Looking for a host with quick wit and sophisticated style, John O'Hurley was chosen as the new host. See more »

Steve Harvey Has Turned the Show Into a Hit
13 September 2012 | by 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.
