TV Land: Game Shows


Family Feud

I had so much fun reminiscing yesterday when I posted classic sitcoms, that I had to continue with game shows. Nothing was more fun growing up than challenging my brother to game show competitions like Double Dare or Family Feud. And I admit it . . . I even tried to get my family on these games a few times. I remember my grandma loved the sappy dating games like Love Connection and the Newlywed Game. At the time I didn't see the appeal, but now I can't get enough. Catching re-runs of these shows is hilarious. I especially love the "conservative" yet "risque for the time" questions posed on the Newlywed Game. TV Land is quickly becoming my new favorite channel.

  3. Marcie - Family Feud was just the best! And Love Connection?? Yes!!

    A couple of my friends came to visit a few weeks ago and they went to The Price is Right - I was amazed to learn all about the process it takes to get on there. It was fascinating!! I always loved Bob Barker!

  4. The Price is Right is my LIFE. I watched it every time there was a school vacation or if I was sick. Easily the best part of my day -- Bob Barker was the BEST!

  9. Double Dare! Yes, I loved that show! And Price is Right and Family Fued. Game shows were the best. I had a few friends that went to the Price is Right when we were in college and one of them won a car! This post really brings me back. I love it!

  10. Thank you dearly for your last comment. It made me so happy:)

    Family Feud and Price is Right were my favorite. I still watch the price is right now with Andre. Been thinking of going to the show at some point. Seems like something we have to do while living in Los Angeles.
