Astro Malaysia is excited to bring the iconic American game show, Family Feud, to Malaysian shores!
Following a partnership with Fremantle, Astro has initiated production for three versions of ‘Family Feud Malaysia’: firstly, in Bahasa Melayu premiering on Astro Ria (Ch 104), followed by the Tamil version on Astro Vinmeen (Ch 202) and thirdly, an English version premiering on PRIMEtime (Ch 704). Popular local hosts, Nabil Ahmad, Dr. J. Ram and Douglas Lim will anchor the respective shows, following the footsteps of American comedian, Steve Harvey.
‘Family Feud Malaysia’ kicks off with the Team Leads of both teams competing at the podium to answer the first question. The fastest contestant who presses the buzzer will be given the opportunity to answer. If the answer provided is at the top of the list of ‘survey’ responses, that team will proceed to guess the subsequent answers. If it is not, the opponent team will attempt to guess an answer higher up on the list. Responses listed are based on a survey conducted amongst 100 participants locally. The team with the highest marks will proceed to the fast money round for a chance to take home a cash prize of RM5,000.
Astro has always been a proponent of gameshows even creating its own formats like All In To Win and The A Game. This month, Family Feud format will kick off with “Celebrity Family Feud Malaysia” every Monday at 11pm, involving celebrities as captains for their teams. In addition, there will also be half-hour episodes featuring non-celebrity participants, every Tuesday, at 11pm. There will also be special episodes celebrating Aidilfitri, from 1 to 9 Syawal, at 12pm, featuring popular cast and celebrities from Astro hits including 'Projek High Council', 'Andai Itu Takdirnya', 'Isteri Halal', former contestants of 'Gegar Vaganza', 'Big Stage' and more. The winnings of the celebrity editions will be donated to selected charities.

OFFICIAL QUOTE BY AZLIN REZA AZMI, VICE PRESIDENT, CONTENT GROUP, ASTRO
"In tandem with the company’s mission to be the entertainment destination for Malaysians, Astro is actively expanding its offerings with the latest and newest content for our customers. These of course will include premium, high quality local productions of international standards.
Having the most popular and adapted game show in the world, 'Family Feud' complements our offering, and we believe that adapting it in multiple languages strengthens its relevance and also allows each host to bring their own uniqueness to the show. The longevity and continued popularity of the show is also testament to global audience engagement of the gameshow format which encourages the audience to get vested in teams and keep coming back for more.
Being the first to adopt XR technology for the show has helped enhance the production of 'Family Feud Malaysia' and has allowed us to scale the production across the different vernaculars. Astro remains committed in providing an unparalleled viewing experience for our customers.
We believe that this excitement will drive engagement amongst both existing and new customers. For those who are interested in the 'Family Feud', don't miss this opportunity to watch the latest adaptation created in your own backyard coming to you soon on your television screens and devices."
