A lot of people wax hysteric about the decline in family values these days — Pauley Perrette is worried about the decline in Family Feud!
The former NCIS star called out the long-running game show on Twitter Monday, saying the poll questions have gotten “so filthy” lately.
Several followers agreed!
My mom (88) wont watch family feud anymore because its too dirty. Everything doesn’t have to have a sexual twist to it

AGREE AGREE AGREE Used to watch it every time it was on. All the answers are filth and @SteveHarveyFM has begun to add “motions” to it. It’s really sad. I miss it.

Agree, one day I was going to watch it with my 9 yr old grandson but had to turn it off. Questions were so bad. The match game is just as bad.

To be fair, the show has been full of innuendo and questions about “making whoopee” since 1976, something a few fans pointed out.
I think it’s been using double entendre since the Richard Dawson days, but a lot of the adult themed/suggestive questions and answers went over the heads of younger viewers. I’ve seen some of the older episodes on gameshow channels and they weren’t too clean.

(BTW, back then, OG host Richard Dawson was known as “The Kissing Bandit” for his habit of weirdly kissing any female contestant above 16.)
But is Pauley right? Has it gotten especially dirty lately??
