Actually Tania - Channel 10 practically are! Apparently the new Friday Night Live show to be aired before the next Big Brother starts has a swimming pool involved and different costumes and stuff. Sounded very "It's A Knockout" to me!

I loved Family Feud when it used to be on with that curly haired guy who I assume was Rob Breugh. Great to see Bert still in a job!

[b:9cffbd0503]Family Feud Press Release from Nine Network.[/b:9cffbd0503]

[quote:9cffbd0503]Get set for entertainment-plus in this exciting game show where families go head-to-head for the chance to take home $100,000 cash per night.

Each night on BERT’S FAMILY FEUD two families of four players have to guess the most popular responses to a series of survey questions. Categories can be as outrageous as:
. Name something that makes a noise when it is turned off?
. Name something that feels nice when you step on it?

With only seconds to answer, the pressure is on each player to bring home the points and uphold the family name. The first family to 200 points plays the Big Money Round for a chance at $100,000 cash.

Produced by Grundy Television, Family Feud has a long and successful history on Australian television. It first screened nearly 30 years ago in 1977.

With Mr Entertainment, Bert Newton, at the helm, the all-new 2006 version has loads of extras for maximum fun and frenzied competition.

Bert Newton says: “It’s amazing how many people have told me that the Family Feud format is their very favourite game show. So for me, it’s a wonderful vehicle to be on for my return to the Nine Network.”

Bert’s precision timing and one-liners guarantees belly laughs aplenty on Bert’s Family Feud, week nights at 5.30pm on Nine. [/quote:9cffbd0503]

Family Feud vs The Deal?

Result: Deal is new and fresh. It certainly has a charasmatic host (unlike an old timer Bert), and has alot of potential for new and exciting twists (like the new double or nothing, next year they could do something likeif you get the final 4 suitcases to be from the right hand side of the board (all ova 1000,), they win some money)

With Family Fued? No room for twists, and it seems like the same game again and again.
I'm sure people around in the 70's & 80's who watched this will tune in for a week and swtich back to Deal. Me? I'll wait and see.

Well get Eddie to give Bert a partnership and we won't have to see any of them.

I watched the first ten minutes (the opening was soooo predictable) and the last five minutes. I really like the show as a game show. It's fun. As for Bert well I'm certainly going to watch for the rest of this week.

The thing with Deal is you can tune in 5 minutes before the end and suss it all out in two seconds where they are at. If there is money to be won - you watch - if they've bombed out - who cares.

NOTE: We get Deal and Feud at the same time where I live.

I thought it was too 'game showey' (if that makes any sense). Nine tried to make it more, way more than what it was. The flash set, fancy lighting and graphics it just looks so put on.

I would agree with that. When Bert came down the stairs with those ladies it almost looked like a theatre production.

I didn't mind the first episode. Bert's jokes were pretty funny but so are Andrew O'keffe's usually.
I will watch it again just to see how it continues.
