Al Roker will host all the action when "Celebrity Family Feud" joins NBC's All-American Summer primetime line-up premiering Tuesday, July 1 (8-9 p.m. ET), it was jointly announced today by Craig Plestis, Executive Vice President, Alternative Programming, Development and Specials, NBC Entertainment and Cecile Frot-Coutaz, CEO of FremantleMedia North America.

Produced by FremantleMedia North America, "Celebrity Family Feud" will be a star-studded version of the beloved and enduring game show, featuring four celebrity families matching wits each week to raise money for their respective charities.

"Viewers can't help but play along, and with Al Roker at the helm, it promises to provide high energy, interactive fun...with the bonus of exposing the unscripted side of our favorite celebrities."
