Not that I'm really craving for his return, but what happened to Louie Anderson? Has Richard Karn been hosting for long?

Heh. Somehow I'd laugh my ass off if a contestant actually called him Al ... I would :-P

Anderson got blackmailed by a man he gave a bj to if i remember the E! THS show about family feud correctly...i know there was some man on man love there, can't remember who did what to who...

he was let go and Karn started fall of 2002

from eonline.com:

"The Scandal: After a night of gambling, Louie propositioned hustler Richard Gordon--and was refused. Years later, Gordon surfaced and asked for $100,000 to keep quiet. Anderson paid. When Gordon upped his price to $250,000, the FBI busted him."

There was a three week period where Monday through Thursday, from 5:00 to 6:30 pm, my friends and I would watch nothing but Family Feud. Two Family Feuds with Dawson and Combs on the Game Show Network and then Borland on at 6:00. Each show had it's own charm, aside from the game itself, which can be both exhilirating and frusturating (IT'S A GAME SHOW BASED ON GOD DAMNED SURVEYS) at once. Dawson kissing most of the women, but trying to avoid the really ugly ones; Combs didn't do anything particular, but every 10 minutes I would remember he's dead and be sad; and Karn is a trainwreck in a good way.

You noticed that too? I saw an episode where the family had their 14 year old daughter in the group, and he even kissed her. I guess things were different then, but I couldn't help thinking, "What a perv".

Richard Dawson was at his peak on Match Game. I saw on episode from around '75 on GSN yesterday he was almost dry humping the dark haired (Diane?) Barker's Beauty from Price Is Right. Priceless.

I'm also an F.F. junkie (best hosts - Dawson, Al, Comb, Anderson - in that order). I've always wondered if the survey participants had to answer the questions in three seconds also.

Not to be the paranoid P.C. guy, but has anyone else noticed that not only was that show WAY behing the times in terms of kissing the women, but that you'll never see a Black family in the Dawson/Comb editions, and they only recently started having Hispanic families on? I've never seen an Asian family, or a family with a Jewish last name (save the "Monks vs. Rabbis special edition). And the world would truly implode if the captain ever said "that's my lovely sister Jane, my Mother Marsha, my younger brother Ed, and his Domestic Partner Dave." I'd pay money to see that.

And, of course, nothing beats the good guys vs. bad guys WWF special edition, where everyone was out of character (except for the Macho Man for some reason). Even Papa Shango, face painted and everything, was out of character. My first glimpse of broken Kayfabe, which started me on the long, bitter road to smarkdom.

Thats no joke either. The Mach Man's family (The Poffo's) are from around here. Several years ago some friends and I went to Carter Caves State Park and low and behold the picnic area had become the home of the Poffo Family Reunion. Mr. Savage was off to the side talking with several family members IN CHARACTER- just having a normal conversation. Saying "Oooh Yeah" and "Dig It."

The day of a WCW show in Cincinnati in 1998 we saw him and Jim Duggan eating at Don Pablo's. He was completely in character while doing anything mundane like asking for a refill.

The man is a walking comedy sketch.

As I've mentioned before on Wienerboard, the wife and I have been F.F. junkies as well, pretty much all through the new Al era. He started out really bad, but improved quite a bit and he's personally my favorite host (although Louie had his charm...Combs was too goofy.)

I believe I've seen a Jewish family on there and I'm sure there have been others with some kind of Jewish descent. But yes, recently they have had a number of different groups represented in the families.

I love seeing Richard get excited when a family with attractive women wins to go to fast money, and they stand close to him on the stage. You can tell he's enjoying it quite a bit.

I've seen some Jewish families on the new version. Also, MoeGates, there was a Greek family from the town in which I also live Right Here....On Long Island! ::thumbs up:: which included an openly gay man (I believe the question was "What is your lover wearing in your fantasies?" and he answered "I'd say he's wearing a tuxedo!"). No one's called Richard Karn "Al" yet, but he did make a Home Improvement reference himself a while back.

Yes, I've been hooked on this show in recent months. UPN 9 here shows two episodes daily, along with two episodes of Donny Osmond hosted Pyramid, which I also love.

I know what show you're talking about, and I interpreted that as the guy answering the question as if he were a woman ("we surveyed 100 LADIES"). But the "He's gay" interpretation does obviously cross your mind.

Do you ever find that you just don't like certain families for whatever reason and wish that they lose? This has happened to me a few times where I developed a distinct hatred for a family and got revolted by the fact that they kept winning and coming back the next day. One of them was with this huge chick named Bubbles (yes that was her name) who kept screaming "WOOOOOOO!" at the top of her lungs for no reason at all. You can tell Karn was holding back from slapping her.

Heh yeah, after seeing a family you kinda get attached to them.

Anyone noticed him doing the Tool Time salute at the end of the shows? That's a cool nod to his old show that I'd never notice before.

I think Holly was the dark haired Barker Beauty. As for Match Game in the 70's, you have to wonder what the hell drugs they were passing out backstage, because just about everyone was 'on' during those shows. Dawson and McClain Stevenson were the best 'bottom center' to appear on the show.

Though this means I've watched more Family Feud than anyone should, you are simply just wrong about black families never being on the Feud with Combs and Dawson. There were on many occasions. Maybe not enough for your liking, and I have no idea of what % of the time. But they were there.

Really? I'll take your word for it on the Comb shows, which I haven't seen that man of, but I've wathced a LOT of the Dawson shows and never saw a Black (or any other remotely ethnic) family.

This is why the Game Show network absolutely rules. Dawson Family Feuds and the Match Game, heh.

But we've strayed too far from the actual question. Has anyone called Karn 'Al'?

I thought they were drunk. At least that's what one of the GSN promos hinted at.
