I miss seeing Louie Anderson on Family Feud. Did he move on to other TV projects?

—Pat D., Missouri

Anderson loved working on Family Feud, which he hosted for three seasons before leaving in September 2002. Anderson is just wrapping up a six-month book and comedy tour. His latest book, The F Word: How to Survive Your Family, is a memoir, self-help book about Anderson’s own family. Anderson, 49, was the tenth of 11 children and grew up in Roosevelt Housing Projects in St. Paul, Minn. He often uses material from his childhood in his work. Anderson and his production company currently are in discussions with a few television networks to find a home for a new game show with a mix of humor, intrigue and dilemma. Look for Anderson back on television screens next season, his road manager says.
