    My family watched this episode and let me tell you, we were a little upset!



    h t t p s : / / w w w . y o u t u b e . c o m / w a t c h ? v = Z k C c L 5 D Y V r E



    Later on during the episode, the grandma gets up to give her answer at the buzzer, the grandma being white, and she had less than a second and the X came up on the screen. When it came to the opposite team, they had at least 4 seconds to answer. If you watch the episode, you'd know what I am talking about.moreless
  • blatant racial waste

    1.0
    too much ghetto profanity and behavior.. not healthy for kids of any color, the jokes are not funny Steve is trying too hard to make the families seem funny and ends up making fun and being rude.
  • Where'd you go?

    4.0
    I haven't seen a new episode of this show for over a year. Steve Harvey made a comment once that reruns are where the money's at. If that's all he's into it for I've watched my last Family Feud. Why can't he put in a little more time to his game show as he does on his talk show or let someone else host it.
  • What a scam

    3.0
    Not very good this show is bias black people have the easiest questions white people don't have a chance,Steve Harvey even looks like he is

    Pulling for black people instead of being equal
  • Discrimination? YOU BET!!

    1.0
    Recently, we have been watching the many "Family Feud" episodes aired on GSN network. THE most obvious discriminatory practice I have noticed is this: Whenever white families make it to "Fast Money" - most of the questions they are asked are MUCH harder, "you-need-to-think-about-it" questions. These questions usually generate a wide-range of answers along with low-scoring number 1 answers (usually much less than 30 . The black people get asked obvious, single answer questions that normally generate high scores (30-60+ PER answer!) :(



    SHAME ON THIS SHOW'S PRODUCERS FOR COMPLETELY KILLING THE OPPORTUNITY THAT REEAALLLLYY COULD EARN THEM THE COVETED TITLE:

    "AMERICA'S BEST TV GAME SHOW!!



    WE'LL STILL HAVE TO LET "THE WHEEL" HOLD ON TO THAT ONE FOR SEVERAL MORE YEARS!!!



    STEVE HARVEY ALWAYS SEEMED LIKE SUCH A COOL DUDE WITH AN UNUSUAL TALENT FOR COMEDY!



    IT IS REALLY SAD TO SEE STEVE "DARKEN" THE BRIGHT FUTURE HE HAS FOR HIMSELF! :(moreless
