Family Feud goes Hollywood on A-channel

Bowing next week, a celeb edition of the long-running series will pit - among other weird matchups - comedian Joan Rivers against rapper/actor Ice T.

A new celebrity version of the classic American game show Family Feud will premiere on Tuesday, June 24 at 8 pm on CTV’s A-channel.

Set in Hollywood and hosted by Al Roker, the game show will reveal the battles of 24 families as they fight to earn money for the charity of their choice. Each week, four celebrity families will engage in a battle of the wits to win up to $50,000 for their charity.

The game show will include celebrities such as Kathie-Lee Gifford (Live with Regis and Kathie Lee) and the casts of NBC’s My Name is Earl (Jason Lee, Jaime Pressly) and The Office (Steve Carell, John Krasinski).

In the premiere episode, rapper/actor Ice T and his family will challenge Joan and Melissa Rivers’ family. Then, singer/actress Raven-Symone (star of Disney’s That’s So Raven) and family will face Wayne Newton and his kin.
