Los Angeles, CA (September 4, 2018) - It's time to play Family Feud! Let the festivities begin as Family Feud celebrates its return for Season 20 on Monday, September 10, 2018 (check local listings). The milestone new season brings in all new surveys, hilarious contestants and families dressed in color coordinated outfits. Host Steve Harvey is better than ever with his quick wit and priceless facial expressions. Survey says... you won't want to miss out on Season 20!
"Happy anniversary to one of the best gifts I've ever received, Family Feud, said Steve Harvey. "I've been here 9 of the 20 seasons and it has been the most fun I've had throughout my career. I have to attribute that to the Executive Producer Gaby Johnston, who is the best I've ever seen as a showrunner. She makes me enjoy coming to work, she totally gets it. And I've laughed at this show and the contestants so much, I think I'm having a better time than the contestants and viewers! Twenty mo' let's go!"
Family Feud is produced by FremantleMedia North America and distributed by Debmar-Mercury. The series features families from across the U.S. who will once again be joined by the hilarious Steve Harvey as they compete for the chance to win up to $20,000 by guessing the most popular answers to questions posed to 100 people surveyed.
Family Feud is poised to be the No. 1-rated game show (and second first-run series overall) in national syndication for the third consecutive year when this season ends in August. To date, Family Feud stands at a 6.5 household rating, with the former longtime ratings champs, Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy!, at 6.1.
