|Richard Dawson's Family Feud premiered|
July 12, 1976, which just passed its 40th
I waited on this one just to get through all of last week. It was July 12th, 1976 that the first episode of Family Feud launched with Richard Dawson.
Any marathon or on-air mention from GSN or Buzzr? I believe not.
Very shockingly, nothing at all on the GSN Twitter page on July 12th. Most of the posts for that day were about Winsanity. I do not go on GSN's Facebook Page, but if there is nothing on Twitter, I highly doubt there will be anything on Facebook.
Very shocking again: Nothing, nada, zero on Buzzr's Twitter.
Finally, the below message on Family Feud's Twitter page: "Quite a run...forty years ago today, July 12, 1976, Mark Goodson's game show Family Feud premiered! The fun and laughs are timeless..."
It is super surprising that GSN did not do a Family Feud marathon at or around the time of the 40th anniversary, featuring all six hosts with an emphasis on the Steve Harvey version, considering how great the ratings are.
You would think GSN or Buzzr would have done something for Family Feud, considering how much each is aired on the two networks.
