 Himself - Host 175 episodes, 2013-2014


Correctly answering 14 multiple-choice questions could net contestants $1 million on a half-hour quiz show that's had a long run since its adaptation from the Brit show with the same name. Its format has evolved, but the basics remain: Answer trivia questions to win what could be very big bucks. Safety nets along the way guarantee sums that can't be lost once a contestant reaches certain thresholds -- and players can quit any time, but going for the million carries the risk of losing hundreds of thousands with one wrong answer. Contestants get "lifelines" to help reach the top. Written by Jwelch5742

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 »

Chris Harrison Makes This Show Unique
23 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

After much disappointments with hosts Cedric The Entertainer and Terry Crews Who Wants To Be A Millionaire has really made a smart and wise move when Chris Harrison was announced as the new host and it really has worked magic for Who Wants To Be A Millionaire not only in ratings but it has made an impact in TV. From the moment Who Wants To Be A Millionaire starts you will be hooked and want to play along with each contestant every day you watch. And it will leave you in suspense with every episode you watch. This is one game show that I rarely miss an episode every weekday morning because it's very addicting to watch. My only wish that Who Wants To Be A Millionaire would improve on in future episodes is make them last longer than 30 minutes and not promote Las Vegas hotels during the first commercial break and have Chris Harrison have new things to say to contestants at the end rather than "Forever It's Been A Part Of This One" I truly think that Chris Harrison really has brought new life to Who Wants To Be A Millionaire and I believe he should've replaced Meredith Veira as first choice because he truly brings a new interesting image to Who Wants To Be A Millionaire and truly he's the best thing since sliced bread in the game show industry
