Reality game shows are among the most popular shows on television. There have been numerous game shows throughout television history, and some of them have been remarkably popular. They catch people in their truest moments and bring to the television a format which has drama, action, tension, suspense, fear, and joy. But none of it is scripted and comes straight from the heart.

One such show is ‘Family Feud’. The show started off on ABC, then moved on to CBS, and finally to syndication. While ‘Family Feud’ deals with regular people who come to play with their family, a spin-off version of the series, ‘Celebrity Family Feud’ plays the same game with celebrity guests. The show is produced by Fremantle. ‘Celebrity Family Feud’ first aired in 2008 on NBC. However, it was planned as a special and was discontinued after that single season. It was only in 2015 that ABC showed an interest in reviving the series. Since then, it has gained widespread acceptance among television viewers.

Celebrity Family Feud Plot: What is it about?
In ‘Celebrity Family Feud’, two teams play against each other. Their objective is to answer certain survey-based questions and manage to get as close as possible to the most popular answer. The show first aired in 2008 on NBC. In that season, there are three rounds, and it is after two semi-finals that two teams get to meet in the finals. However, the ABC version of the show which premiered in 2015 does not use such a format and there are only two teams competing against each other.
Each episode starts with a face-off question and the contestant who has to answer buzzes in first. If both contestants give the same answer, then the one who pressed the buzzer first wins the round. The correct answer is hidden among a number of concealed answers present on a board. A family can win the round by directly guessing the right answer. If they want to continue playing the round, they can try and answer all of the hidden names that are present on the board.
