The meme-tastic show that we have laughed out loud to is coming to South Africa. Deadline reported that local versions of the popular game show, Family Feud will film in Ghana and South Africa later this year.
The show pits two families against each other in where they name the most popular responses to survey questions in order to win money and prizes. It was originally created in 1976 and has been running ever since. Steve Harvey took over as the host in 2010.
