Some good questions on "Family Feud" include "Name a state that gets a lot of tourists," "Name an animal we eat that would never eat us," and "Give a woman's name that starts with the letter J." First aired in 1976, "Family Feud" is one of television's longest-running game shows.
"Family Feud" producers often purposely word questions so that they come out sounding a little inappropriate. The show also has its fair share of funny answers to the given questions. According to Steve Harvey, the host of the show from 2012 to 2014, one of his favorite incidents of a bad answer occurred during the question "Name something that follows the word 'pork.' " The contestant responded with "upine" as in "porcupine." In another instance, when asked what a burglar would not want to see when breaking into a house, the contestant responded with "naked grandma."
When the show first began in the 1970s, the show polled audience members to get the answers to the survey questions. However, producers eventually decided the answers didn't accurately represent American opinions. For the incarnation of the show that aired in the 2010s, "Family Feud" used a polling firm to conduct the surveys via telephone to get a more accurate representation of American opinion.
