About

Howard Felsher was an American game show producer.

As the producer of Tic-Tac-Dough during the quiz show scandals of the 1950s, Felsher testified during congressional hearings that he had provided questions and answers to contestants prior to game time. He was fired by NBC in 1959.

Felcher returned to game shows intermittently in the 1960s but found his greatest success in the 1970s, working on such game shows as Concentration, Password Plus, and, most notably, Family Feud, for which he received 13 Daytime Emmy Award nominations, winning two. He retired in 1995.

Felsher died July 23, 2018, in Tarzana, California. He was 90.
