Richard Dawson defined the ideal game show host with his wit and persona. "Family Feud" was a perfect vehicle for his talent and carried the day for game shows. The problem with Ray Combs was that he had to follow Richard which had to be difficult. Ray did a great job but was not the overall charmer Richard had been.Those who followed Richard including Louie Anderson have the misfortune of following the premier game show host who represented the genre.
