Trivia

At the beginning of season 9, the lifelines were changed. The "Double Dip" and "Ask the Expert" lifelines were replaced with two "Jump the Question" lifelines, which allow the player to skip the question without having to answer it. However, the player forfeits the amount of money hidden behind the question. The "Jump the Question" cannot be used on the very last question, which is the million dollar question. The "Ask the Audience" lifeline still remains the same. See more »

Quotes

Crazy Credits

The show originally aired on ABC. When an episode ended on there, Regis would typically make a remark about what show was going to be on there next (for example, Dharma and Greg) right before the credits ended. Strangely, these are NOT edited out in Game Show Network airings! See more »

Not what it used to be.....
27 August 2004 | by (Sidney, OH) – See all my reviews

some people may not have liked Regis, but cmon, at least he gave the show some enthusiasm, humor, and excitement.....The show is sooo boring these days with the female host....She is boring, her jokes are dull, and she has no enthusiasm whatsoever....After a contestant answers a higher level question, she will try to make the contestant nervous into thinking he/she got the question wrong, but she'll say some of the absolutely dumbest things while doing so....Also, quite frankly, some of the guests are outright weird....I mean, seriously, do they screen any of these people before they let them on the show....Regis's Millionaire is a game show classic, but the newer version just isn't making the grade
