Shirley used to add "Chuck" when she sang the Name Game on the old Murray the K Xmas/Easter shows at the Brooklyn Fox.

d'aw! you guys stole my comment.
Family Feud: who the hell were they surveying?!? This question has kept me up many a sleepless night.

Family Feud is the greatest game show in the history of America for the simple reason that it dispensed with even the pretense of "expert knowledge" (even The Price is Right rewarded you for correctly estimating the cost of things); instead The Feud became a touchstone institution of postwar US culture by rewarding people simply for producing the most average answer. Truly, the revenge of the hoi polloi against the hauteur of Statistical Sociology.

Yes, estimating the expected responses is key to Family Feud. On an old SNL, Kevin Nealon racked up points on a game show by knowing what the average high school kid would answer to questions like naming capitol cities; New York-New York City, New Jersey-Jersey City! It wasn't right it was just predicted. Brilliant.
