He certainly gets my vote. He made that show!
I liked him on Hogen’s Heros.

Family Feud has probably had more hosts over the years than ANY gameshow. My favorite is John O’Hurley, who was J Peterman on Seinfeld-—watching old Dawson re-runs, I was amazed to see how regularly and blatantly he would kiss women contestants full on the lips, no matter the age.
Sorry about that. I checked back but somehow missed it. At least their weren’t as many repeat posts as there were for the Edwards trial verdict.
Indeed. Family Feud’s never been the same since he stopped being the host and all the kissing ended.
Always loved him from Family Feud, I felt like I knew him. Sweet and funny, miss him.
It’s fascinating that he was once married to England’s answer to Marilyn Monroe: Miss Diana Dors.
All of the Match Game regulars are reunited. RIP
R.I.P. to a serial kisser, and the perfect game show host.

A great video of Dawson.
speaking of the Match Game, I’ll always say that Gene Rayburn was the one that made that show, and it ceased to be The Match Game when he left the show.
