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 »

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 »

Meredith is wonderful
3 January 2003 | by (Davenport, IA, USA) – See all my reviews

I didn't care for Regis Philbun as host. He seemed to make the contestants feel so uncomfortable. However, Meredith Viera is a wonderfully funny woman, and she is very comfortable with the contestants, and her smile is as warm as the noon time sun. So I hope that the show lasts for a long time, and Meredith stays on my television at 8:30/9:30 C until she decides that it is time to move on.
