Trivia

During the Halloween week in Season 11, the show had a Halloween theme. The icons for the lifelines were changed and they had different names that represent a Halloween theme, which were picked out by the show's Facebook fans. The "Ask the Audience" was renamed to "Pick the Audiences' Brains" and the "Jump the Questions" were each renamed to "Bat the Question Away". In addition, a new lifeline called "Crystal Ball" was provided during that week. It would reveal the amount of money behind the question, helping the player decide whether they really want to jump the question. This lifeline was also used occasionally during Season 11.

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 too much is good about this show anymore!
10 March 2011 | by (Cary, NC) – See all my reviews

More than a decade after its U.S. television debut, it happens that "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" is definitely no longer as great a game show as it once was. I do tolerate Meredith Vieira as the hostess, but her hosting style is somewhat boring, and does little to preserve the enthusiasm, humor, and excitement given the show by Regis Philbin in the prime-time version. In addition, I dislike the dumb things she says to contestants on higher- level questions, when making them nervous into thinking that they got their questions wrong. However, I like that she is very comfortable with the contestants, and is better at pronunciations than Regis. I hate how the show's format has changed so many times over the years... I think "Millionaire" is better in its classic format than in any other. Nowadays, it seems that the "Millionaire" game has been ruined... It's not what it used to be... And the fact that it's only a half-hour show makes it even worse... However, despite all of its flaws, I still think that the syndicated "Millionaire" is entertaining and very fun to watch and play along with. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who was a die-hard fan of the prime-time shows or who is a respectable trivia buff.
