ABC has ordered a second season of Steve Harvey’s “Celebrity Family Feud.”

The network made the announcement Saturday, ahead of ABC’s panels at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, Calif.

The pickup comes as no surprise, as “Celebrity Family Feud” ranked as the highest-rated new series last summer and ABC’s top summer show, averaging 9.4 million total viewers, according to Nielsen’s “live plus seven” ratings.

The game show pits celebrities and their families against each other in a contest to name the most popular responses to a survey-type question posed to 100 people.

“Celebrity Family Feud proved to be a hit with audiences and a natural extension of what is one of FremantleMedia’s strongest television properties, Family Feud. It’s a fun show to make, it’s a fun show to watch, and with the magic of Steve Harvey and our great partners at ABC, we couldn’t be more excited to be returning for another season,” said Jennifer Mullin, co-CEO of FremantleMedia North America, which produces the show.

Recently, Harvey found himself at the center of a social media roast for crowning the wrong winner at December’s Miss Universe pageant, though he is still on of the most popular and sought-after hosts, likely credited for much of “Celebrity Family Feud’s” success.

Production on Season 2 of “Celebrity Family Feud” begins this March in Los Angeles.

    Love this show..watch it non-st. One problem…At end of each round I cannot understand when audience reads the answers. Comes across muffled. I have fluid behind my eyes so I often miss the ending answers. Can Steve Read or say them out loud so they are stated clear. Otherwise it is my all time favorite show. I am on hospice and it is my day and her entertainment. Thank you!

    I have always loved watching the Steve Harvey Show following up with Family Feud. I never miss a day of watching. That is all about to change. I found the question on the show I was viewing today very offensive. “What might a dog do if he saw Donald Trumps hair?” The answers that followed we disrespectful. I don’t know who is the decision maker on what questions will be asked, however, this one at this time was in extremely poor taste. With division in our country at this time, that fact that ABC, as most channels, encourage the poor behavior being demonstrated by the American citizens is disgusting. As for Steve Harvey, if he could not take the heat, hired a damage control person for the fact he spoke to Donald Trump, he pansies his way out of this, well I for one will never give ABC or Steve Harvey anymore air time in my home. I am not a Trump fanatic by any stretch, but I am someone who has more intelligence apparently than the people airing this show. Disrespect and ignorance. Not right on either side. Good bye for good ABC and good bye and good riddens Steve Harvey

  3. Over the years I have watched Family Feud and enjoyed it with a variety of hosts. I do like Steve Harvey but I’m at a loss to understand why just about every other question is suggestive, lewd and just downright dirty. My two young granddaughters, who are seven saw the show and they ask if they can watch it when at my home. They get a kick out of trying to give some of the possible answers. I cannot allow them to watch this show. I am far from a prude but I am completely disgusted with the show and shame on you Steve Harvey for agreeing with the people who come up with these awful questions. I know you are a comedian but this is not a Vegas standup show where anything goes, this is TV shown during the day. You, of course, goad these contestants and expect them to come up with some base answer so you can display your facial expressions and laugh. I am so disappointed with you. I’m only one person but I’ll bet there are many more viewers who are just as disgusted as I am. More than likely this won’t even get to you but at least I tried.

      I used to love watching Family Feud when it was in good taste. Now since Steve Harvey has been host it has become lewd and way to suggestive. NOT a family type show at all. I watched this week but won’t watch anymore.
