Family Feud to launch on Ten in a fortnight

Ten has announced an air date for Family Feud.

The Grant Denyer-hosted gameshow – which will air every weeknight at 6pm – will begin in just over a fortnight, on Monday July 14.

Denyer was previously weather presenter on Seven’s Sunrise and briefly hosted the network’s Million Dollar Minute.

The 37-year-old show’s recommission – it first aired in Australia in 1977 – was announced by Ten three weeks ago. It will be produced by Fremantle Media.

Although the 6pm slot is a vital one for Ten kicking off the network’s daily primetime schedule, it will not have to deliver much of an audience to improve on current ratings. The 6pm timeslot is currently filled with Modern Family repeats. Last night’s episode rated a metro audience of just 378,000 – less than a third of the 1.3m viwers watching both Nine News and Seven News at the same time.

Earlier this year Denyer addressed claims about his health and personal life.
