The 76-year-old (right) was spotted at the MGM Grand in Vegas, looking useful.



Richards' real name is Colin Lionel Emm.

Dawson met his current wife when she was a contestant on "Family Feud."

He kind of looks like Ray Bolger when Ray got old.

He had a Johnny Carson Harvey Levin, Jack Nicholson type appeal. I loved him as an actor and on the game shows. He had real charisma.

Oh my goodness, Dawson is one of my favorite game show celebs/hosts . When he was on Match Game and Family Feud he kept me in stitches with that humor of his . Iv always thought he was an under rated personality . Oh and on Hogans Heroes even my straight laced mother laughed her self silly . He looks good, I hope he stays around for awhile more to entertain us . Goodness knows we all need some good old fashioned funny business, that isnt in politics that is .

I remember Dawson as the ONLY celebrity who the contestants picked, when there was alot of money on the line on THE MATCH GAME. He always got the correct answer. He was a regular and won alot of money for contestants.
We used to think Match Game was rigged, because Dawson ALWAYS got the right answer.
But HE'S STILL ALIVE N KICKING !!!

Ya. It seems a lot of people have him confused with another Family Feud host that committed suicide. I've never heard a report that Dawson was dead.

I enjoyed watching Richard on THE FAMILY FEUD. and I enjoyed watching him on HOGAN'S HEROS. I didnt know that he met his wife on Family Feud. Hopefully she wasnt one of the Wives...that really caused a Family Feud. But, seriously, I hope he is doing well
