|Steve Harvey's Family Feud currently airs on GSN weeknights at 6pm ET.|
We have received a few e-mails here at GameShowNetworkNews about the possibility of GSN acquiring the 2012-13 season of Family Feud, the latest season that can acquired at this point in time.
Please read the following, in quotes sent to GameShowNetworkNews from a representative at GSN offices in California in response to our previous post:
"Game Show Network is currently making attempts to acquire Steve Harvey's third season of Family Feud, but FremantleMedia is asking for more money than ever for these episodes. Our offices are facing similar struggles to when they have tried to acquire Wheel of Fortune from SONY. Our network wishes to acquire the latest episodes of Steve Harvey-hosted Family Feud to bring attention to new originals airing on our network later this Summer"
Skin Wars premieres Wednesday, August 6th. Idiotest premieres Tuesday, August 12th.
"It is still very possible for the 2012-13 season of Family Feud to appear on the Game Show Network later this year, but these episodes are extremely more costly to acquire than previous Feud acquisitions."
The current incarnation of Family Feud (1999 to present) has appeared on GSN since 2007, when all four seasons of Richard Karn's Family Feud (2002-06) were acquired. In 2008, the first two seasons of John O'Hurley's Family Feud (2006-08) were acquired. In 2010, the third season of John O'Hurley's Family Feud (2008-09) was acquired. In 2012, the first two seasons of Steve Harvey's Family Feud (2010-12) were acquired. In 2013, the last season of John O'Hurley's Family Feud (2009-10) was acquired by GSN.
