    Not seeing another thread on this, but Richard Dawson of "Family Feud" and "Hogan's Heroes" fame, has passed away. RIP.

    He was great on Family Fued.
    I loved how he could always make Germans fall for his phony accent on "Hogan's Heroes"
    But who can forget his turn as a game-show host in "The Running Man"?

    You know, I've always had an affinity for Richard Dawson. I credit him with my perviness, even though I only saw his FF episodes as repeats.

    I liked him a lot. RIP, good sir.

    Me, too. According to Graysmith's book, there was tension between Crane and Dawson on the "Hogan's" set. Mainly jealousy on Dawson's part. However, Dawson introduced Crane to Carpenter and many of us know how that relationship turned out.

    RIP

    He was terrific as one of the permanent 'celebrities' on Match Game in the '70's, which was the precursor to his Family Feud gig. I'm surprised I haven't seen Match Game even mentioned in the couple of write-ups that I've read.

    His Super Match statistics, both in terms of being chosen and his percentage of successful answers, was Bonds on PED-like.
