I recently had the chance to watch a live, in-person taping of Celebrity Family Feud, while traveling LA! Celebrities and their families coming together to spar and play to win some cash for their favorite charity. With 12 families squaring off to take home the prize, this provided to be a jam-packed, fun-filled schedule for everyone involved. Be sure to watch over the next six weeks as celebs like Dr. Phil, Mario Lopez (Saved by the Bell), Vicky Lawrence (Mama’s Family), The Robertson Family (Duck Dynasty) and more come together in what is guaranteed to be pure entertainment and laughter right from the start.

Tonight’s premiere (June 21st) features some amazing celebrities. Anthony Anderson (black-ish) & Family will face Toni Braxton (Braxton Family Values) & Family.
The second half of the show features Monica Potter (Parenthood) & Family versus Curtis Stone (Austrailian Celebrity Chef) & Family. Each team will be playing to win $25,000 to be donated to their charity of choice.
Stepping onto the stage after the show was an amazing experience and totally surreal. Being in a place where you normally watch from the comfort of your living room is awesome and exciting. One of my favorite parts of the taping was the crowd entertainer. They have a very charismatic DJ who will dance, sing and engage each and every guest in the crowd. It was really fun watching everyone on the crowd, young and older, dancing and shaking to hits from yesterday and today during each and every filming take.
My personal taping included the gifted and talented Vicky Lawrence (The Carol Burnett Show) & Family versus the honorable Ed Asner (Mary Tyler Moore Show) & Family. Ms. Lawrence was the true definition of timeless. She is as beautiful, stunning and funny today as she was during her earlier comedic television days. She currently travels with her family performing live on stages everywhere.
Ed Asner is as witting, charming and a bit saucy today as he was years ago during his sitcom days. His family was loving, caring and a true joy to watch as they played the battle of wits with their dad.
Celebrity Family Feud is hosted by Steve Harvey, the highly popular multi-hyphenate stand-up comedian, actor, author, deejay and Emmy Award-winning talk-show and game-show host, “Celebrity Family Feud” premieres tonight at 8pm (ET) on ABC.
