In 1986, producers decided that the "Family Feud" needed a makeover, and they wanted a fresh face to breathe new life into this old favorite. "Family Feud" producer Howard Felsher remembered hearing great things about a talented young comic named Ray Combs. The late Mark Goodson chose Ray to host "The New Family Feud." It was a perfect match. Ray's down-home love for people was genuine. But pressures began to amount in 1994 as ratings on "Family Feud" began to slide following the death of Mark Goodson. Son, Jonathan Goodson and consultant Harris Kattleman decided to bring back original host Richard Dawson to try and boost ratings, but a drab set covering, low prize money and bad timeslots forced "Family Feud" back onto the shelf in 1995.
