Celebs Set to Play 'Family Feud'
NBC rolls out prime-time version of game show in July
The network's prime-time version of the long-running game show will hit the airwaves Tuesday, July 1, with the likes of Kathie Lee Gifford, Vivica A. Fox, Bill Engvall, Ice T and Wayne Newton (and their relatives) scheduled to compete. The winning family in each game will earn a $50,000 prize for the charity of its choice.
"Today Show" co-host Al Roker will serve as host of the show.
In some cases, the definition of "family" gets stretched a little bit. Comedian Margaret Cho, for instance, will have two of her assistants play the game alongside her and her parents. There will also be a pair of all-NBC games, with cast members from "My Name Is Earl" squaring off in one game ("The Hickeys" vs. "The Camden County All-Stars") and cast members from "The Office" facing several "American Gladiators" in the other.
The other celebs taking part in the show are Engvall's "Blue Collar Comedy" cohort Larry the Cable Guy, comedian Mo'Nique, the Teutuls of "American Chopper" fame, Christopher Knight and Adrianne Curry, Corbin Bernsen, Joan and Melissa Rivers, Raven-Symone, Kim Kardashian, Deion Sanders, Tiki Barber, Ed McMahon, Vincent Pastore, the cast of "The Girls Next Door" and Duane "Dog the Bounty Hunter" Chapman.
