Debmar-Mercury has renewed Fremantle Media North America's
Family Feud through 2015 in more than
75% of the U.S., in stations owned by by Fox, Sinclair, CBS, Tribune,
Cox, Capital NBC, Sunbeam, Newport and Belo.
The game show, which has grown 40% in W25-54 in
2010, has also been moved to the 5-8 p.m. slot in over half the country after posting ratings growth
following the addition of Steve Harvey as its host. This coming season, Family Feud will be shot in HD.
"Stations have wasted no time in securing this franchise
well into the future with these long-term renewals, extending Family Feud through 2015 and making it a
viable alternative to off-network sitcoms for many stations seeking strong
early fringe and access programming," said Ira Bernstein, co-president of Debmar-Mercury.
