* SoundEffectBleep: The ABC version uses whistles whenever someone utters an obscenity. This also happened on extremely rare occasions where an answer had to be censored in the 70s versions.

The summer of 2016 saw the return of the show to both ABC and New York with Creator/AlecBaldwin as host as part of ABC's "Sunday Fun and Games" block, alongside the returning ''Celebrity Family Feud'' and Michael Strahan's reboot of ''[[Series/{{Pyramid}} The $100,000 Pyramid]]'' (much like ''Pyramid'', it'll be taping in NY again because Baldwin lives there); it's been renewed for a second run in the summer of 2017.

* OutOfOrder: The two halves of the July 10, 2016 episode were broadcast the other way around than how they were actually filmed. Although this may have been, presumably, to put a Super Match win at the end of the show, it also explains why the audience was laughing so hard at the question involving Tituss Burgess's pinot noir in the "first" game, because he had [[BrickJoke brought up pinot noir earlier as a guess in the "second"]]. Based on how it aired, most viewers probably assumed that the guess was actually a CallBack to the first game.

** The 1970s version built its ''reputation'' on seeing how much they could. Any question involving a female and a pluralized blank usually led to at least one person (not always on the panel) offering "boobs" as an answer.

* HotterAndSexier: Questions on the 1998-99 version tended to be more overtly sexual (translation: lots of UsefulNotes/BillClinton jokes) than on any previous version. Nearly every episode had at least one answer that had to be beeped out and have the panelist's card censored (although that happened at least once on the ABC version, and at least four times in the 1973-82 run).
