Family Feud around the world

The following article details examples of the game show Family Feud, originally aired in the United States on ABC and CBS and in syndication, elsewhere in the world.

Fremantle's website also lists Denmark, Finland, Israel, Italy, Lebanon (which ran on MTV, not to be confused with the music channel of the same initials), Norway, Russia, South Africa, and Sweden as other countries with versions of the show.

Feud in the Americas

Between 2004 and 2005, Canal 13 in Argentina has had its own version. The show was called "100 Argentinos Dicen", and like most versions of Feud in Latin America, its set is a dead ringer to the Mexican version of the show.

The French-Canadian version was called La Guerre des clans ("War of the clans") and was hosted by Luc Senay from 1992 to 1997 on TQS. Its set is a dead ringer to the pre-Bullseye Ray Combs version. Combs himself introduced Senay at the beginning of an episode of The New Family Feud in the US when La Guerre des clans first premiered in Canada.

A Brazilian version of Family Feud, hosted by Silvio Santos, began in June 2005 on SBT. Their version uses the logo seen on the current US version from 1999 to 2006, and their set is sort of a cross between the Richard Karn-era US Feud set and the 100 Mexicanos Dijeron set. Another version, Jogo das Familias, aired on the same channel during the mid-1980s with the same host, and their set, as one would assume, closely resembled the Richard Dawson-era set. The show is now called Familia Unida, but still hosted by Santos. The set (presumably) is a cross between the Que Dice la Gente? and current U.S. Feud sets.

Reg Grundy, who produces the Australian version of the show, also has produced Chile's version of the show, called Desafio Familiar ("Family Challenge") on TVN in 1993.

A version in Colombia is called 100 Colombianos Dicen, which means "100 Colombians Say". It is hosted by Carlos Calero and airs on Caracol TV.

A Mexican version of this show was called 100 Mexicanos Dijeron, which means "100 Mexicans Said" and was shown on Telefutura in the USA from 2002-2006. It was produced by Televisa, the dominant network in Mexico, and was hosted by the square-jawed and ever-smiling Marco Antonio Regil. Now, the show has moved to the United States, still airing on Telefutura with the same host, but it has a new title, called "¿Qué Dice la Gente?" ("What Do the People Say?"), which also serves as the title for the Uruguayan and Venezuelan version. Julio Cesar Palomera is the announcer for both shows. Strangely enough, "Que Dice la Gente" uses a set similar to the 2005-2006 US Feud set, while the Feud Set was overhauled for 2006-2007. One Latin game show website said that Marco Antonio Regil made an appearance on an episode of the US version in 2002, when Richard Karn became the new host. It would be proven true in a YouTube clip featuring an interview with Regil himself, talking about the aspects of being a proper TV host.

In Nicaragua has the same title as United States.

In Panama a version of Family Feud is on air from August 2006, and is called 100 Panameños Dicen (100 Panamanians Say) made by TVN. Rolando Sterling hosts.
