Family Feud is an American television game show created by Mark Goodson and Bill Todman. Two families compete against each other in a contest to name the most popular responses to a survey question posed to 100 people. The format, which originated in the United States, airs in numerous local formats worldwide.
The original version premiered on ABC and was hosted by Richard Dawson from 1976 until it was canceled in 1985, by which point it had been popular on both the network and in syndication. The series was revived by CBS in 1988 with Ray Combs hosting it until its cancellation in 1993 and its accompanying syndicated series until 1994, when he was replaced by Dawson for one season. The series was activated again in 1999 and continues to air with the 14th season, which began on September 10, 2012, and also marked the show's first season in HD. During that time, it has been hosted by Louie Anderson, Richard Karn, John O'Hurley and Steve Harvey, who became the host at the start of the 2010–2011 season.
