That said, wouldn't the joke have been funnier if one of the categories had randomly scored "1?"
Yes. I was waiting for some bad pun on Hodor.
Concept, 10; execution, 5. I'd show him giving the answers too. And wasn't there a game show skit on the Maya Rudolph Show that basically did the same thing, but with success like you're suggesting?
I don't know--I think it might be funnier if it were an utter non-sequitur. ("Name a kind of sandwich!" "Hodor!" (ding) "One point!")
I was also hoping that the final category would have scored, like, 30 points on a total non-sequitur. (I think it was "people can be deeply in..." which I would have cracked up about).Related (sort of): why do more survey-takers not screw with Family Feud by putting weird answers? I guess it ends up being statistically insignificant, but I'm curious if they ever end up with, like, 5 of the same odd answer. Okay, off to google "interview with the guy who takes the Family Feud surveys"...
Agreed. The last answer should have been 2 Hodors. I think the rules of the feud require at least 2 of 100 answers in the survey to count. (nitpick).
Usually it's "Top X answers on the board." (Usually that's 4-5.)
BD is correct -- the # of answers on the board is determined by "how many had 2+ responses?" At least when Steve Harvey and his occasionally effed-up suits is hosting.
Do we need to discuss the superiority of other hosts to Harvey? Harvey makes the show all about himself, rather than the contestants and the survey answers.
Disagreed: I'd rather watch a show about Steve Harvey reacting to middle America than the quiz part of the show.
I wouldn't mind as much if the questions weren't always seemingly designed to provoke "Steve Harvey reacts with shock to lady saying something vaguely off-color."
