A fun fact about Family Feud

(1/2) > >>

howierules86:
I just love the fact that Steve Harvey has now hosted Family Feud longer than anyone else that came before him (who would have seen that coming in 2010?).

vnisanian2001:
Another fun fact is that the original ABC Daytime run was supposed to end on June 28, 1985, but for whatever reason, the final two ABC weeks were unaired originally. That was confirmed by Bob Boden.

So, 1997 was the first time the finale were shown, and 2003 was the first time the final two ABC weeks were shown.

Ccook:
The original Feud was planned for CBS as a companion show with Match Game. However, repeats of All In the Family were drawing great numbers at 3 PM Eastern, so it got optioned to ABC. Dawson got the hosting job through a clause in his Match Game contract giving him a shot at his own show.

And the person he kept from the job, by exercising that clause? Jack Narz.

Ccook:
Geoff Edwards was in the mix as well, but he was contractually bound to Bob Stewart.
