Celebrity Family Feud debuts tonight

Feuding celebrities is nothing new, but tonight NBC puts a different spin on things when it kicks off its summer game show Celebrity Family Feud.

The fun starts at 8 p.m. on NBC with host Al Roker.

Tonight, comedienne Joan Rivers and her family, including daughter Melissa, take on rapper Ice-T and his family. Let’s just hope the censors have the bleep button ready for Joan.

The lineup for the remaining shows this summer looks interesting, too. Most notably, I can’t wait to see the cast of The Office and My Name is Earl. NBC hasn’t released the date yet for those matches.

Other celebrity families I’m interested to see are Corbin Bernsen’s clan. Longtime TV fans will recognize Bernsen from his role on L.A. Law and now as Henry Spencer on Psych.

Other contestants this summer include Deion and Pilar Sanders; Vivica A. Fox; Mo'Nique; Christopher Knight and Adrianne Curry; Wayne Newton; Vincent Pastore; Margaret Cho; and cast members from American Gladiators, Dog the Bounty Hunter, The Girls Next Door and American Chopper.

With so little quality television on this summer, the survey says that this game show could be a hit for NBC.

As a fan of the "original" Family Feud with Richard Dawson, I can't wait to see this twist on a classic. Al Roker is perfect for the job too.

Ok now what said...

Out of all the new "shows" this summer, I think this is the one that I will probably look forward to. Of course that doesn't say much, I once again found myself watching Celebrity Circus Star the other night, what is wrong with me! All these reality shows are killing me Jen!!!!

Bec, celebrity circus? Really? Oh my. This TV drought is worse than I thought!

Julie, I LOVED the Richard Dawson classic, too. I grew up watching it and even had the board game as a child. I can't wait to see the casts of The Office and Earl. That will be a good time.

Even though the tv show casts aren't technically families, I think those will be the best episodes. Anyone else agree?

Ok now what said...

It is bad Jen, bad....I just cannot believe it has come to this...

punkypower I agree with you, by the way.

Yes, Punkypower. (Love the name, by the way!) I wish there were more casts doing this. Can you imagine the Lost gang taking on the Heroes folks? Or the One Tree Hill kids up against Smallville? Forget the reality series stars. NBC has gold here, if they could get show casts. Of course, I'm not sure how that would work, unless the show is on NBC.
