  • The Older The Better

    I don't really care about the fact that the new Family Feud always features a black vs white family on Family Feud. To me, it seems racist to think that the show always having black vs white families is a flaw of the show. What's really driving me crazy is the questions regarding sex, women/men, sexual anatomy, etc. It would be fine if there was a question regarding sexuality every once in a while on the show, but to have at least one nod to sexuality every single episode is uncalled for. Very rarely on this show do you ever get a question regarding something interesting or thought-provoking. For example, a question on one of tonight's programs was along the lines of "Name a part of the body that you would feel uncomfortable with someone kissing when greeting". The first three questions were all private parts of the body. Do the producers of this show think that adding sexual questions to the show will bring in more viewers? Do they think that we will laugh at this? Family Feud in the old days didn't do this so often, and when it did, it was actually funny. I will admit that Steve Harvey is an awesome host, and he does a very good job. Richard Dawson and Ryan Combs would be proud, not to mention Richard Karn and the other host could already be floored at Harvey's presence on the show. But, there has to be some diversity with the questions given on this show, and the families need to be much smarter than to give answers such as "your breasts" or "your balls". I don't think I should watch this show anymore, other than the 2-minute clips they have on YouTube.moreless
  • Racial Diversity

    Why are they trying to fake racial diversity with always having a white family vs an african american family? There are never any other ethnicities represented on the show.
  • What's with the black vs. white?

    Is there some reason why there always seems to be one black family and one white family? It seems almost like a competition between the races. The two families should be more random: two black families, two white families, one of each, etc. It just seems like more often than not, it's a black family vs. a white or Asian or Hispanic family.
  • What happened to the real Family Feud?

    The Family Feud is supposed to be a family show but the questions asked by Steve Harvey are too sexually explicit and the answers and question that are on the board are a bit embarrassing. I've been watching the show for years. But lately I cannot sit and watch it since you just don't know what to expect, one question the other day was"massive dump" and very inappropriate, it was about dating twins, it's ridiculous. Maybe the producers must be corrupt or are even porn producers, its SHAMEFUL! This is a family show, and it used to be a brain game that was suitable for all ages to watch and now it's strictly xxx rated game show, What happened to the real Family Feud? I use to watch the show with my nephews and father in law, we like Steve Harvey, but feel he does not produce the show, so he has to go with the questions they produce. The show should be to enhance learning and clean fun, like Jeopardy and the Wheel, ones you can watch with your put it on the porn channel, for those who want that type entertainment, the late, late, late Harvey is very funny, he does at times seem to go on and he should see that the show has more variety in contestants. Make it more educational and family friendly, like it was before or better, it has a lot of followers and especially learn from what we show and we hope Steve Harvey wants to be looked up to.....moreless
  • Ms. Ella

    I am a fan of this show for many yrs and I always thought the diversity was awsome. But, today I watched and didn't understand the ruling one member buzzed in first but only gave the second best answer, so the host gave the other family the opportunity to guess the number one answer and that contestant did guess that answer, but there was a tie called and the other family was able to have the choice to play or pass. My questioned is why give the other family a guess at the number one answer if they don't have the option to pass or play? Isn't that giving the other family a free answer? I don't know just sayin.moreless
