7th Dawson Set Fast Money by mrentertainment 7th Dawson Set Fast Money by mrentertainment
Here's the 7th set ready for Fast Money. Family Feud was the #1 syndicated game show until 1984 when the nighttime version of Wheel of Fortune beat Feud in the ratings. The daytime version was declining in ratings too when ABC moved the show to 11:30 AM in October 1984 going up against the second half of The Price is Right on CBS. However, there were some interest in keeping the show in production. In a 2011 interview, Richard meet with Viacom executives about keeping the show for 1 final season of 39 weeks, but wouldn't continue doing the daytime version. He didn't hear from Viacom for a week, but once they contacted him, Viacom told Richard that they were no longer interest in continuing the nighttime Feud for the 1985-6 season. ABC also decided not to renew the daytime version for the 1985-6 season. The daytime version ended on June 14, 1985 and the syndicated version ended on May 17, 1985 with reruns airing until September 6, 1985. And on the final episode, Richard gave a heartwarming farewell speech.
