I have to agree...I do not care to watch Family Feud any more. It just doesn't seem the same without Richard Karn. He will really be missed.
What happened any way?

I can'at believe they replaced Richard Karn with O'Hurley. There is no comparision in the two. Let's start a protest with Tribune Entertainment. We should comply a list of names against this decision.

Tribune Entertainment has made it so that you cannot email your complaints or comments. So, I went to Fremantle Media and sent an email through the main site. There should just be a fun host for the show... Richard Karn was just that. He fit the show so well. John O'Hurley is just too stiff for a show like this. He would be better suited to a financial or political talk show.
I want Richard back!!!
I guess I just won't get to watch it anymore, because I can't stand it now. My 10 year old daughter even agrees. She told me it just isn't fun to watch with the "new guy".

I agree completely and my 10 year old daughter was upset by the change in hosts also. We really liked Richard's casual personality. It seems like some of the other hosts were phony and trying too hard like John seems to be. I guess it's just his personality but it is hard to watch. Seems like old time game shows with the phony game show hosts with their pearly white teeth and staged choreographed words and movement. l

Why did Richard K leave the show? He was the best. He wasn't phony and was really likable. My family misses him on the show. No one else will measure up.

John O'Hurley sucks. He does not consistently say what the top answers were. Richard Karn was much better !!!

John O'Hurley is not NEARLY as good as Richard Karn. I can't believe you made the switch !!!

In my opinion, Richard Karn was THE best host the show has had - a perfect fit. I read on another site that the decision was made because of sagging ratings. I really doubt that explanation. A more likely explanation is that the producers wanted to cut their budget, so they brought in a host who would work for less.
