'Family Feud' Viewers Slam Game Show For Raunchy Answers

Fans demand the show get back to its family-friendly format

"Family Feud" hasn't exactly been "family friendly" these days.

 

Fans of the long-running game show have come forward with complaints about answers from contestants that have been anything but PG. They're also none too happy with suggestive questions that leave open the possibility of raunchy answers.

 

During a recent episode, host Steve Harvey asked a contestant to "name the first part of a woman you touch to get her in the mood.

 

The player replied, "Um, that would be the lower front or the vagina."

 

In another episode, Harvey asked a contestant to name "the last thing you stuck your finger in." The contestant said "my wife."

 

While the answer garnered big laughs from the crowd and a clip of the show has been viewed more than 1 million times on YouTube, viewers are less than amused.

 

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

 

Another stated, "Some of these questions are such obvious setups that it's painful to watch sometimes."

 

In response to viewers' concerns, Dan Gainor, vice president of business and culture of the Media Research Center, told FOX411: "I think what has changed is that Hollywood has so undermined and coarsened our culture, that these answers have become the norm. Sex acts that many Americans had never even heard of are now typical dialogue."

 

Don't expect the racy questions to stop anytime soon. Harvey has breathed new life into the game show since taking over as host in 2010 and "Family Feud" beat "Wheel of Fortune" and "Jeopardy" in ratings for the first time this summer.
