The “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” costar and new “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” host will emcee the 30th annual invite-only, untelevised gala that happens in the middle of the summer TCA panels and festivities. Awards will be presented in categories such as news and information; youth; drama; reality; and comedy, as the top TV critics in North America honor the best programs of the 2013-2014 season.

His infectious personality is equal parts hilarious, bold, and down-to-earth. His work speaks for itself—from comedy and drama, to sports and reality television, Crews is a diverse »

Meredith Vieira is one of the great daytime talk show personalities of any era. She's cool, smart, diplomatic without being stuffy, and fun. I hope she hosts "Jeopardy!" when Alex Trebek retires. Let's start passing around that petition now. When Vieira visited Conan O'Brien last night, she dropped all semblance of newswoman staidness and got bawdy (She says "tit" and "ball-sack" when she first sits down). Then, she mocked Matt Lauer's silly shorts. It's a perfect interview. P.S. Let's never forget when she hit on a "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?" contestant really, really hard. »

Before VH1′s I Love the 2000s special began on June 17, I polled my roommates (whom I forced to watch with me) about their favorite pop culture moments from the year 2000. For about three minutes, everyone was stumped—what’s actually from the year 2000, instead of just under the umbrella term “the 2000s”? It turns out that remembering specific years is a lot harder than you think.
That’s why there’s a saving grace to VH1′s nostalgia-bait series, a 10-part anthology spread out over five days this week. It’s hugely entertaining to hear no-name comedians praise specific »

It seems Angela Merkel had better things to do with her time. One of Merkel's political allies twice tried to reach the German Chancellor during the broadcast of the local version of quiz show Who Wants to be a Millionaire?, but all he got was Merkel's voicemail. Story: Terry Crews Named New 'Who Wants to Be a Millionaire' Host Wolfgang Bosbach, appearing on a celebrity charity version of the show, had named Merkel as one of his telephone "jokers," or the lifeline equivalent of "phone a friend." When a question came about life in former East Germany -- where Merkel

ABC may have finished the season in fourth place in adults 18-49, but it closed strong — winning the May sweep in primetime’s key demo for the first time since “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” was at its peak.
The Alphabet won all four Fridays and Sundays in the month, paced by “Shark Tank” and “Once Upon a Time,” respectively (pictured). Overall, ABC claimed seven of the top 20 broadcast series in adults 18-49: “Modern Family,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Dancing With the Stars,” “Once Upon a Time,” Marvel’s Agents of Shield,” “Resurrection” and “The Bachelorette” (which aired only once).
In live plus same-day Nielsen estimates for April 24-May 21, the Alphabet network led in adults 18-49 with a 1.7 rating/5 share, »

var brightcovevideoid = '3577054628001'; Jimmy Fallon is well-known for hosting "lip-sync battles" with guests on The Tonight Show, but with the famously buff Terry Crews in residence, a battle of a different kind was in order. A "nip-sync" battle. Fallon and the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star "duetted" on the Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder song "Ebony and Ivory," with Fallon receiving a computer-generated assist from some very buff Tonight Show staffer (with a prominent shoulder tattoo). Crews, who will start hosting Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? this fall, will also be appearing in the new Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore rom-com Blended, »

Terry Crews’ impressive physique is often a prominent aspect of his various film and television roles. His intimidating physical presence is used to comedic effect as a stark contrast to his gentle demeanor on Fox's “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.” It was used again for comedy when he dropped by “The Tonight Show” to participate in the show's first-ever “Nip Sync Duet.” Also read: Terry Crews Joins ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire’ as New Host What could be better than singing the classic Paul McCartney/Stevie Wonder hit, “Ebony and Ivory” as a beautiful duet? Singing it while flexing pectoral muscles, of course. »

Terry Crews has given “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” his final answer — and the answer is yes. The “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star has signed on as the new host of the long-running game show for its upcoming 13th season, which will premiere in the fall.

The actor, author, former NFL star and Old Spice pitchman has been named the new host of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, Disney-abc announced Wednesday.

“I’m beyond thrilled to be joining Who Wants To Be A Millionaire and the Disney-abc family,” Crews said in a statement. “Millionaire is such a beloved franchise and I can’t wait to get started as the new host. In addition to my film projects including Blended, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and now being a first time author, hosting has always been a dream of mine, and I couldn’t have asked for a greater opportunity.”

I don’t know who Terry Crews' agents are, but, whoever they are, they deserve whatever percentage they’re getting and then some, since Crews seems to be everywhere, in movies and TV. Where does he find the time to do it all?And now somehow he’s now found time to add another gig to his long resume, with the announcement that Crews is all set to replace Cedric "The Entertainer" on the syndicated TV version of Who Wants to be a Millionaire, next season.Last week Cedric announced that he was leaving the show after just one season, saying his busy schedule was creating a problem for him to continue with the show. And Crews isn’t busy enough?

Cedric the Entertainer is leaving the syndicated game show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire after only one season as host, EW has confirmed. He replaced Meredith Vieira, who left last year after hosting the show for 11 years.
Cedric cited the show moving its production to Connecticut and his schedule as part of the reason for his exit. “With the many television and film projects that I have going on which shoot and promote in various parts of the country, a production-base in Connecticut would make it quite difficult to maneuver the many moving parts on my plate,” he said in a statement. »

Cedric The Entertainer is leaving Disney-abc‘s syndicated game show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire after a season as a host. There is no replacement yet though I’ve learned that Terry Crews is in line for the gig. Cedric cited his busy schedule and the show’s move to Connecticut for the decision. “With the many television and film projects that I have going on which shoot and promote in various parts of the country, a production-base in Connecticut would make it quite difficult to maneuver the many moving parts on my plate,” he said in a statement. “So, after much thought and some serious conversations with senior executives at the studio, I decided to let Disney-abc know that, unfortunately, I’m not able to continue on as host. It has truly been a fantastic ride hosting Millionaire this year — a really great time! Thanks so much to all the fans, »

Perhaps the only real problem with Earshot is that it misses a blindingly obvious trick. On today of all days, Buffy – having been infected by some demon mind-reading gunk – can't mentally earwig on the thoughts of The Mayor and Faith. She could don one of her brilliant disguises (as seen in I Robot...You Jane) and then show up to The Mayor's pristine office while camouflaged as a postie or a pizza delivery girl or a double glazing sales rep. It's odd that Buffy doesn't attempt this, given that it could be the ideal opportunity to throw some more light on this Ascension business.
The mind-reading staple's another cliché of stock fantasy and sci-fi, but what Earshot does is to carefully look at the up and down sides of this condition. It's an extra sense that I bet people would think about having. It's the sort of thing that would »
I didn't expect to be exhilarated by the news that every former and current cohost of "The View" will come back to the show to join Barbara Walters on her last episode of the series. I really didn't. But for some reason I feel like this is the new "The Last Waltz," an historic summit of superstars that we'll never get again. I can't wait. I'm not even a big "View" watcher and I can't wait. To celebrate, here are the greatest moments from every former and current "View" co-host. Meredith Vieira hits on an unsuspecting "Millionaire" contestant. Meredith rules. Full stop. She's the reason "The View" got any traction when it began, and she was a fantastic host of "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" Here, she completely stuns a contestant by hitting him and referring to herself as "a horny old woman." I'm rooting for her to take »

The NFL is television’s unchallenged goliath, setting new viewing records last season that helped the league generate approximately $10 billion. But one businessman sees trouble on the horizon. Outspoken billionaire NBA owner Mark Cuban (Shark Tank) predicted an NFL “implosion” in the next decade, pointing to overexposure, as well as the sport’s health and safety concerns, as a recipe for disaster. “They’re trying to take over every night of TV,” Cuban told Espn, while discussing the league’s recent deal with CBS to air Thursday-night games on free TV. “Initially, it’ll be, ‘Yeah, they’re the biggest-rating thing that there is. »
