A marathon of programs featuring the late Richard Dawson is set for this week as a tribute to the longtime “Family Feud” star, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Dawson, also known for playing Capt. Newkirk on “Hogan’s Heroes,” died June 2, as previously reported.
The Game Show Network (GSN) will pay tribute to Dawson on Thursday with a programming marathon starting at 6 p.m. ET, including episodes of "Family Feud" with Dawson as the host, and "The Match Game," in which Dawson was a panelist.
In a release, GSN said, "The Richard Dawson marathon will feature unforgettable moments, such as when Dawson first meets his future wife, Gretchen, who was a contestant on ‘Family Feud,’ and the infamous ‘September’ episode. In that one, Dawson couldn’t stop laughing (he eventually had to stop the clock) when a contestant, responding to the question ‘During what month of pregnancy does a woman begin to show?,’ answered ‘September.’ … [Also] Dawson’s triumphant return to ‘Family Feud’ in 1994."
