  1. Looks like GSN is really trying to get as close to becoming the Family Feud Network as possible without it actually happening. Dawson and Combs will be nice to see though, would be nice for them to become GSN regulars again, maybe in the noon hour, if they have to shove Feud down our throats. On a side note, first time since July that a 2007 episode of O'Hurley Feud has been aired, is it possible that GSN lost the rights to O'Hurley's first 2 seasons to give viewers that "cutback" we've all been asking for?

  2. GSN still has a lease to the 2006-07 & 07-08 seasons to Family Feud. It's not going anywhere. Dawson, Combs and Anderson disappear after Thanksgiving completely, for now.

    Check the latest post. Family Feud gets a two hour cutback effective December 2nd.

  3. I haven't seen early seasons of O'Hurley Feud in a while, if GSN has to show a lot of Feud, I would like those seasons to get shown.

    Sorry, I didn't see the latest post when I posted my comment, good to see Feud get cut back, as well as the new acquisitions. Hope it works.

  4. You can scan the pdf's through mid-December at GameShowFollies. Any "FF06...." are the 2006-07 season and "FF07" is the 2007-08 season

  5. +Scott Rahner, What month and year began airing 2006-2007 epiosdes and 2007-2008 episodes of Family Feud?
