Celebrity Family Feud is a spin-off of the American game show Family Feud. Similarly to the primetime All-Star Specials featured during the late 1970s and early 1980s, the episodes feature teams of celebrities playing for charity rather than normal contestants.
The first incarnation of the spin-off was broadcast in 2008 by NBC as part of a block of summer reality series it branded as All-American Summer. Instead of the host of the syndicated version at the time, John O'Hurley, the NBC celebrity version was hosted by Al Roker of the Today Show. It was played between five-player teams composed of a celebrity captain and four friends and/or relatives, with a $50,000 top prize to be donated to the charity of the winning team's choice.
On April 9, 2015, ABC announced that it would air a new six-episode run of Celebrity Family Feud for its summer lineup, premiering on June 21, 2015. It is hosted by Steve Harvey, the current host of the syndicated version of Family Feud. It marked the first time that any version of Family Feud has aired on ABC since the end of the original Richard Dawson version in June 1985. Unlike the syndicated Feud, taped at the Atlanta Civic Center, this version is taped at CBS Television City. Burton Richardson has also reprised his role as announcer, returning after his departure from the syndicated version in 2010.
During the NBC run of Celebrity Family Feud, each episode featured a tournament-like format with three games; the winners of the two semi-final games played a final, with the winner advancing to Fast Money. Due to time constraints, the format was slightly modified from the 2003 format used by the syndicated version, in that the double value round is eliminated, with each match containing two single rounds and a triple round, although the game still played first to 300 points or sudden death. In Fast Money, if one or both members of the team accumulated a total of 200 points or more, the group won $50,000 for their charity. If the playing members did not reach 200 points, $25,000 was still awarded to the group's charity.
The 2015 version follows the same format as the syndicated version, with two self-contained games per-episode, each concluding with Fast Money played for $25,000 to the group's chosen charity.
