Richard Dawson, the iconic host of TV game show Family Feud - whose trademark became his enthusiastic kissing of all female contestants - died Saturday at the age of 79.

His passing started a conversation about the best game shows ever - from the still-going Jeopardy and The Price Is Right to the still-missed Password and What's My Line? (TV Guide's 50 Greatest are here.)

I enjoy Jeopardy and am amazed at the extent of knowledge the contestants have. My only complaint is Alex Trebeck's arrogance. "Of course, the answer was..." If it was that obvious, one of the contestants would have gotten it correct.

Martha, Couldn't agree with you more. My husband and I cringe everytime he makes one of his snarky remarks.

PS: Yes Alex, its easy when you have the answer right in front of you.

I would agree that "Hollywood Squares" and "Match Game" were 2 of the funniest game shows, for comedic value. ("My mother's driving is so bad, it makes me want to <BLANK>") By the way, my wife reminded me, wasn't Richard Dawson a celebrity panelist on "Match Game" as well??

PDY-- I totally agree, the gross kissing weirded me out also. How crazy is that, anyway? Can you picture Alex Trebek giving soft, prolonged kisses to his contestants on Jeopardy?!? Were the women contestants making appearances on Family Feud actually looking forward to that??
