Because NBC just knew you couldn’t stand the wait any longer, “Celebrity Family Feud” is now going to debut a week earlier than originally scheduled. The Al Roker-hosted show will launch on Tuesday, June 24, 8-9pm, says BuddyTV. And just to sweeten the deal even more, Week 1 will herald the showdown of Ice-T versus Joan River, who, you may remember, used to live in Larchmont.
Now, you know I’d normally be pulling for the local favorite. But in this one circumstance, I gotta go with T, who, believe it or not, once lived my hometown of Summit, New Jersey (which is basically the Larchmont of that part of the state). Though he was technically born in Newark, I still consider him part of my tribe. Go T!
