** ''Celebrity Family Feud'', patterned after the 1976-85 version's frequent nighttime celebrity specials, aired in Summer 2008 with Al Roker as host. The first answer ever to be given in this series had to be censored (a testament to how Roker was as a host: he nicknamed the offending answer "Captain Winky"). This, coupled with the fact that the visiting cast of ''Series/MyNameIsEarl'' seemed to be intentionally-stupid with their answers and not care about the $50,000 jackpot, equaled a definite {{Cancellation}}.

The show spawned a popular British version as well, renamed ''Series/FamilyFortunes''. Hosted by Bob Monkhouse (1980-83), Max Bygraves (1983-85), Les Dennis (1987-2002) Andy Collins (2002) and Vernon Kay (2006-present). There has also been an Australian version, with several hosts from 1977-1996, then hosted by Bert Newton for the 2006-7 version and Grant Denyer from 2014 onwards. It also inspired a Mexican version named "100 mexicanos dijeron". (A 100 Mexicans Said)

Said). There's a successful Russian version as well, called "Сто к одному" (literally "100 by 1"), first aired in 1995 and still being produced. The main difference is that teams don't have to be families, often they're made of friends, coworkers or there are two music bands competing. Studio designs have been upgraded a few times, but the host (Alexander Gurevich) has never changed since the first game.

* {{Crossover}}: Just about every late-1970s/early-1980s Top-20 ABC show made an appearance on primetime ''Feud'' specials during the Dawson era. ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'' and CBS soap operas appeared for charity during the Combs run. Dawson '94 again featured soap operas, as well as ''Series/AmericanGladiators''.

''Family Feud'' is a GameShow from [[Creator/MarkGoodson Mark Goodson Productions]] in which two families compete to guess the most popular answers to survey questions. Richard Dawson was the original host when the show debuted on Creator/{{ABC}}. The original version began in 1976, with a concurrent syndication run starting up a year later; both ended in 1985 within a month of each other.
