“Celebrity Family Feud” was down in its Season 2 June premiere from its breakout debut last summer, but still has done solid business for ABC. Its season opener drew a 1.5 in 18-49s and 7.8 million, the second best results of the night, following “$100,000 Pyramid,” hosted by Michael Strahan. It was the standout in its Season 1 premiere, with a 1.7 rating among adults 18-49 (Live+Same Day) and 8 million viewers. “Match Game,” from FremantleMedia North America and hosted by Alec Baldwin, started off witha 1.5 in 18-49s and 6.7 million viewers. That was ABCs largest summer audience in the time slot with regular programming in nearly 10 years and tied the highest young-adult number in four years since August 20, 2006 and July 8, 2012, respectively.
