Cedric The Entertainer To Officially Host Who Wants To Be A Millionaire

by on March 23, 2013



For those who didn’t realize the show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire was still around, this news will be twice as informative. Not only is the classic game show in which players answer increasingly difficult trivia questions for cash prizes heading into season 12, but the show’s new host is to be Cedric The Entertainer. According to USA Today, Millionaire, in its current daytime time slot, averages 3.2 million viewers per episode. This is a third of the viewership popular game shows like Jeopardy and Family Feud have regularly. Meredith Vieira, who has been hosting Millionaire since 2002, will be replaced by Cedric The Entertainer come fall. Do you think his involvement will spice up a former hit game show?
