I thought Geoff Edwards turned down Family Feud first.

It would've lasted one season with Shatner.

I mean it lasted 2-3 years with Louie Anderson, so it absolutely could've done more with Shatner.

Some 20 years ago Shatner did an album (Has Been?) that had Common People as the lead track.  Common People is a 10 out of 10, the rest of the album would be an 8 out of 10.  Seriously, that was a damned good album, you should check it out.

Bill doing Family Feud?  Yeah, that would have been cancelled 2-3 shows in.  I just don't see him as a good MC for that show.

Couldn't have been any worse then when he did Iron Chef USA...

/ It just didn't have the charm of the original or the later Iron Chef America.

William Shatner has a good screen face, but he's really, really, really bad with people, being a douchebag, so I don't see that as having potentially survived for very long.

I did forget the caveat: In that timeline, Ben Richards isn't played by Arnold Schwarzenegger, but by Frank Stallone

Schwarzenegger was busy filming Over The Top after Sylvester Stallone had a bizarre accident that left all the muscles in his right arm torn due to some bet he made with Terry Funk and Scott Norton.  He was never the same.

The William Shatner of the last 20 years could probably pull it off but 1970s-Shatner hadn't learned to laugh at himself yet and would have been a horrible host for anything 'fun'.
/The timeline may not be perfect but at least we got Newkirk Dawson.

Wait, wasn't Shatner caught in the Nexus during the time the Treaty was signed?  I think he was busy making breakfast for his horse and riding his fiancée

We asked 100 people "Name your favorite role played by Ricardo Montalban."
