I haven't caught a Combs Feud in probably a month or more, what point in the show are they in now? Thanks

So, now that we have the GSN god awful Video Game block out of the way, at the rate of 7 episodes a week, we are getting near the end of the CBS Combs Feud run then. Has this been the only cycle of the Combs Feud on GSN?


It would be great to see the Syndie Episodes from '93/94 and even the Dawson '94/95 version(if GSN has rights to it that is)

In the current 5:30pm EST slot, GSN hasn't completely ran all of the CBS half hour Combs Feuds yet.  They started off sometime in 1989 and have ran them through now ever sense.

At this time, GSN doesn't have the rights to Dawson '94 Feud, but they could put on Combs's syndie episodes or restart the Combs CBS Feud from 1988.

 GSN started airing Combs Feud again in May 2001 in its current time slot, and they started in Fall 1988. They could indeed restart the CBS Daytime run, or jump to the syndicated shows at some point in the run(1988-94) Have they shown all of Combs' syndie episodes? They haven't had a regular spot on the schedule since 1997 IIRC. They could also drop the 5PM Feud airing or the 6PM Pyramid airing and show the 1992-93 CBS hour long Family Feud Challenge shows, and those too haven't been seen since 1997.

If they aren't too strapped for money to go into the vault and get them. Look at what they did to Wheel and Jeopardy

 Well, the difference between Feud and the Sony Shows is that GSN's current contract with Fremantle allows them to air all of the Goodson-Produced Family Feud episodes except for the 1994-95 Dawson version.  They wouldn't have to make a separate deal to show Combs's syndie Feud or his hour long CBS episodes at this time.

Does the special week of divorced husbands vs. their ex-wives take place during these remaining months of the half-hour CBS shows, or is that part of the hourlong FF Challenge?

 Ex hubbies and wives(and their divorce lawyers) appeared on an early week of the hour-long 1992-93 CBS FF Challenge. Dawson in 1994-95 did a week of hubbies and wives as well.

Thanks. I didn't get GSN until '98 and my CBS affiliate never showed Feud, so I'd only seen the syndies before GSN started showing the 30-minute CBS episodes. Hopefully GSN will air Challenge again sometime (and maybe get Dawson '94 again). Seems like it would at least be a good fit on the weekend as an alternative to the weekday half-hour shows.

Well, according to the EoTVGS (which is accurate 40% of the time), the last half-hour Feud was in June.

Assuming GSN doesn't pull the Feud block any time soon, we'll get to the last half-hour CBS eps by April-May.

I haven't watched in a while...did they decorate the set for Christmas 1991 as they did for 1988 and 1989?

Yes, the set was fully decorated for several days, and on one episode he brought out all his kids with him during the intro.

 It was also done during the syndie run, c. summer 1992.

 In this particular case, they were correct. I remember watching CBS the morning of June 29, 1992 with a friend. There was such a big deal made about how starting that day, the Feud was expanding to an hour. I watched the first hour-long episode and thought that they were trying too hard to be like TPIR. But, back to your post, EOTVGS was right. The last half-hour daytime episode aired June 26, 1992.
