Celebrity Family Feud

Celebrity Family Feud (July 1)

The more things change, the more they stay the same.  When that Family Feud music kicks in, I feel all warm and fuzzy inside.  Aside from the music, the current primetime incarnation of the show is a little bit different from what us purists remember.  I don’t know if I’ll ever get used to the fact that as the answers to the various survey questions are revealed, the panels no longer flip over with a huge “ding!”.  And I don’t think any of the more recent hosts still shout, “Survey says!” like my old pal Dick Dawson used to do. Of course, they don’t try to make out with every female contestant either, regardless of age; although I’m pretty sure Al Roker would’ve taken Ice T’s wife, Coco, up on anything she wanted to offer him in the pilot episode.  I love Al, but his painful interactions with Ice-T’s family have shown him to be one of the whitest black men on TV, behind only that one dude that Will’s cousin Hilary used to date on the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
