Louie Anderson had seen success as star and creator of his autobiographical animate Series Life With Louie in the years just before taking Family Feud gig, though the multi-layered performance style he put into his cartoon and comedy act does not seem to carry over as gracefully to his game show host efforts. Not to say that Anderson did a bad job during his three-year run, but for the revival of the long-Running game show, his hosting skills were not ideal. Louie Anderson was let go from Family Feud in 2002, but he is now more relevant than ever. In 2018, he released his sixth live stand-up special, Big Underwear, and in 2016 he won the Primetime Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actor in a TV Series, Comedy, for his role as Christine Baskets, mother of Zach Galifianakis character of FX Series Baskets. He's been nominated each year since, too. Richard Karn took over as host of Family Feud when Louie Anderson was let go in 2002. Replacing an established comedian with a former sitcom actor proves to be a lackluster decision in the humor department, though, as Karn struggles through most of his attempts to drive joke home. But he clearly wanted to make the gig work and show great enthusiasm for the game by trying to keep guest families entertained between questions. In following years, Ray Combs struggled to revive his career, including gigs hosting short-live competition show and fail talk show pilot. In 1996, he faced painful health problems, debilitating debt, and had recently separated from his wife. On June 2 1996, 40-year-old Ray Combs hung himself in his room at Glendale Adventist Medical Center, where he'd already been placed under 72-hour psychiatric observation. He was survived at the time by his parents, his wife Debbie, and their six children. For a while, Steve Harvey was a triple threat on television, hosting NBCs Little Big Shots and his self-title-syndicated talk show at the same time as Family Feud. Melissa McCarthy will soon take over the hots of Little Big Shots, though, and Harveys talk show was recently canceled but at least we can still trust him to shout Survey say! Every weekday for years to come, hopefully. Richard Dawson would later parody his Family Feud persona playing the ruthless emcee of a deadly, futuristic competition program in Running Man With Arnold Schwarzenegger. In 2012, he died of complications related to esophageal cancer, leaving behind a grand legacy in game show iconography. Family Feud airs on weekdays in syndication, so check your local listings to see when it plays in your area. Let us know in the poll below which Family Feud host was your favorite!

3 Worst: Steve Harvey

Game shows have been around almost as long as TV itself. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, first Game Show ever was Spelling Bee, which aired all way back in 1938. On the show, host Freddie Grisewood tasked people with, wait for it, spelling words. Riveting stuff! And it paved the way for literally thousands of game shows that have existed since then. There are all kinds of styles and formats of game shows, everything from tests of physical endurance to games of chance to intellectual endeavors. For all the variety of potential games, there is one tried and true constant host. The Game Show host is usually friendly, upbeat and excels at innocuous banter while explaining rules and bringing contestants along for the ride. It's worth remembering that the host you see on TV is just a persona, however, character these people are playing. In real life, some of these Game Show Hosts can be just awful. They are, after all, just like the rest of us, even if they wear terrible suits and tell jokes that are cornier than your dad's. Some of them are awesome people and some are, well, you'll see. Way back in 1966, Bob Eubanks started hosting Newlywed Game. He hosted it off and on for years after that, including stints in the '70s, '80s, '90s, and even 2000s. The format of the show is pretty simple. A group of newlywed couples are quizzed on how much they know about each other with questions ranging from mundane to PG-level risque. It's been an enduring concept for decades and Eubanks was the face of it, playfully digging at contestants and feigning shock at some of the more saucy answers. Back in 1989, Eubanks appeared in the Michael Moore's documentary Roger and Me, about the downsizing of a General Motors plant in Flint, Michigan. Eubanks was interviewed because he's Flint native, and took the opportunity to randomly toss out jokes that were both homophobic and Anti-Semitic. In 2012, while hosting a stage parody of Newlywed Game, Eubanks again made a homophobic joke on tape, according to Advocate. Reputation from these jokes and his history of Off-color remarks on Newlywed Game has dog him since. Good thing his show isn't still taping, or there would probably be petitions for him to be fire. For a long time, you couldn't discuss game shows on TV without bringing up Bob Barker. The Unofficial king of daytime game shows, Barker hosted Price Is Right from 1972 to 2007. He'd actually started hosting games way back in 1956, so he had an incredible run of more than half a century. And while he's long been associated with the high energy and good times of Price Is Right, there was more going on behind the scenes than most of us realize. Price Is Right has a history of using models to showcase fabulous prizes.
