Familyfeud

Family Feud is a televised game show that pits two families (or other groups, especially for celebrity shows) of five against each other in a contest to guess the most popular responses to surveys posed to groups of 100 people. The show was first hosted by Richard Dawson (1976-85/1994-95), who was succeeded by Ray Combs (1988-94), Louie Anderson (1999-2002), Richard Karn (2002-06), John O'Hurley (2006-10), and Steve Harvey (2010-present).

Appearances[]

The Muppets appeared for the week of November 9, 2001, competing against the Dixie Chicks and friends (country music singers Buck Owens and Keith Urban). Steve Whitmire, Bruce Lanoil and Victor Yerrid performed Kermit the Frog, Mo Frackle, and Sweetums respectively while Brian Henson and Bill Barretta changed characters throughout the week.

Henson performed Dr. Phil van Neuter on Monday and Sal Minella the remainder of the week, Barretta performed Pepe the King Prawn Monday and Wednesday, Johnny Fiama Tuesday and Friday, and Bobo the Bear Thursday. Rizzo the Rat also appeared in the audience.

For this week, primarily to not show the Muppet performers, the Face-Off Podium had extensions attached to the front and was moved forward for Fast Money.
