    Family Feud host Steve Harvey has brought ratings up since his debut in 2010.
    What ever happened to family-friendly TV?

    “Family Feud” fans are demanding changes to survey questions after contestants gave one too many raunchy answers.

    Earlier this week, host Steve Harvey prompted a contestant to "name the first part of a woman you touch to get her in the mood."

    "Um, that would be the lower front or the vagina," the bashful contestant replied.

    Before getting a high-five approval from Harvey, the man added, "I didn't want to say it."

    One of television's favorite game shows has fans upset over risky survey questions.
    When Harvey asked another contestant on a previous show to name "the last thing you stuck your finger in," the player responded with "my wife," leaving viewers of the show annoyed with the continual sexual path the family game show has taken.


    YouTube clips of the shocking answers were posted on the “Family Feud” channel and each received more than 800,000 views.

    The comments under the videos made it clear fans were not too pleased.

    "Man this show is really milking the sex thing," one comment read.

    Another viewer said, "They come up with these questions now knowing someone will say something like this. Not funny when it's totally planned."

    But since Harvey took over as host of the show in 2010, ratings have surged — beating both “Wheel of Fortune” and “Jeopardy” on a regular basis.

    Dan Gainor, vice president of business and culture of the Media Research Center, told FOX11 the racy comments are simply a result of sexual content becoming more acceptable on television.


    "I think what has changed is that Hollywood has so undermined and coarsened our culture, that these answers have become the norm," Gainor said.

    "Sex acts that many Americans had never even heard of are now typical dialogue."

    But it’s also a trend that dates to the 1970s, when game shows like "The Newlywed Game" became known to pose risqué questions to contestants.

    In one famous 1977 show, host Bob Eubanks asked contestants, “Where is the weirdest place you’ve ever gotten the urge to make whoopee?”

    One bride hesitantly answered, “In the ass.”

    The audience laughed as the embarrassed new bride corrected her response.

    Fuck the Media Research Center. They hated Stern back when we listened because we liked him.

    "That Stench? It's Stern"

    "Last April Fool's Day, at a press conference announcing his weekly late-night television program, Howard Stern remarked that broadcast standards were "at an all-time low" and that he was "here to represent" that state of affairs. He was too modest. Week-old garbage has a better stench than the thoroughly repugnant "Howard Stern Radio Show," which has now aired twice and easily qualifies as the most disgusting show in the history of broadcast television."

    "The premiere, on August 22, opened with Stern telling his audience what President Clinton should have said during The Speech: "My penis is swollen bigger than Rosie O'Donnell's head. I want to show you my penis right now. I tell you, I'm so backed up I could shoot Alan B. Shepard into orbit. In conclusion, there is an opening for an intern here at the White House. If you can suck the color out of a marble... please apply."

    I didn't notice that. What has me fuming is the author doesn't know the difference between "risky" and "risqué"

    maybe the author meant "risky", like there was an inherent risk that some one would answer the question in a "risque" way?:dontknow:

    You shouldn't be fuming this early on a Sunday morn, it's not good for you.

    Yes, I do. I'm addicted as well. It's funny because I used to watch all these shows growing up, and just because
    they're mostly from the 70s, they make me even more interested in seeing them. Reminds me of being a teenager. :giggle:

    Titties and schlongs are now common answers. So, yes. Family Feud is far too sexual for impressionable younger viewers.
