  1. No offense here, but I think Blacks (or African-Americans) are watching "this" version of "Feud" why more than any other race on this planet. just saying!

  2. We don't know what exact race is watching Family Feud the most and what the percentage is per race. We do know that Family Feud had a great showing Sunday night, a better showing in Thursday primetime and its interesting how an hour of Idiotest reruns did better than the new runs the night before.

    1. That could be a component of a show getting renewed. If it does well in reruns.

    2. Again no offense, but I agree because black culture probably can associate more w/ Steve and the high % of black families on the show. I grew up back in the days(70s) when they were trying to consolidate schools and combine the black and white schools. To me it didn't make any difference because on the playground you'd mostly see clusters of black kids playing together and groups of mainly white kids together. I always said it was like the saying 'birds of a feather'. You hang w/ people you have the most in common with, so why try to force anything different. I believe this is where so many race issues come from today. Just let people be people. Saw the poll on the right~#TeamTammy

    3. "That could be a component of a show getting renewed. If it does well in reruns."

      That could also work against a show in some situations. GSN could figure if reruns do as well or better than new runs, why bother producing new runs?

      I doubt this is the case with Idiotest and I agree withat you Adam. New runs continue to perform very well while the reruns work too. Idiotest will probably get renewed when Skin Wars does in the next month or two.

  3. GSN Network needs to run a 4 hour Marathon Sale Of The Century

  4. My Reward is 100,000 Dollars Call GSN Network Demand our game show back on the GSN Schedule M-F and let's finish the SYN Series of 1985-86 with SYN Episode 197 ? ? Crystal Miller

  5. Do u guys realize the Thurs. total viewers rivals the total of CW broadcasts from that night, and they are considered a major broadcast network? Well done GSN, you deserve this for finding your niche. Take 6 shows and make a network. It seems to work for u. Kudos!!

    1. True, but The CW isn't really a major network. The network has struggled the last couple of years. Sure they have hits like The Vampire Diaries and the revamped version of Whose Line, The Flash, and others, but in ratings, they always come in last. Because the channel is more minor now. The CW used to be a good channel, but ever since 2009, they started producing shows more for teens and pre teens, so that network is worthless half the time. GSN actually has shows that actually are for everyone, kids, teens, adults, or the old. Besides, I would choose GSN over The CW any day. Any network can make The CW's numbers look pathetic. Heck, even Jep! Wheel, and Family Feud produce way more better numbers and make half the primetime shows look embarrassing with their numbers.

  6. Although its getting ratings and again I really stopped watching this version since 2010, Family Feud has become a sick, racists and raunchy parody of its former self and I for one blame Fremantle for making Mark Goodson and Bill Todman shows into complete jokes when they should not be at all. I mean this version is trying to make Harvey become the Kim Kardashian of Family Feud to the point where I just don't care anymore.

    I really think they should've hired a black host that can balance and relate to both blacks and whites like Wayne Brady for example but of course these nitwits will never do that.
