In November, Fox announced World's Funniest Fails, a TV show based on the FailArmy YouTube channel. A month later, Fox has revealed World's Funniest Fails' host, and he will bring a lot of power to the role. Veteran actor Terry Crews, who has a regular role on Fox sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine, will lead weekly discussions about FailArmy's viral video clips.
As host, Crews will lead a weekly panel discussion that will ultimately name one video as the "Fail of the Week." The panelists will be announced "soon," according to a press release.
In addition to his role on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Crews was tapped earlier this year as the new host of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. “This show is going to be a blast,” said Crews of his latest gig. “Like everyone else, I find myself watching these viral videos with my kids and cracking up at the hysterical fails from around globe, »

Have you ever had your whole day made by a stranger, and for the rest of that day, you weren’t able to stop smiling??? Well Omg that just happened to me today when I stalked the incomparable Terry Crews into the elevator!!! First of all, the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star has been one of my favorite actors ever since his hilarious break out role in White Chicks, and I’ve loved just about everything else he’s done (including his Old Spice campaign!). With a build like that, I’m sure nothing scares him. But I must say, my fangirl shriek did startle him a bit! I’m just glad he didn’t use his football skills to tackle me to the ground.
Terry was the absolute nicest celebrity I’ve ever met, and pretty well dressed if I do say so myself. He talked about how he »

Hgtv was planning on airing a new house-flipping show, Flip It Forward. However, following a revelation by Right Wing Watch that the proposed show’s hosts had a history of religious bigotry, stalking an abortion doctor and anti-gay activities like protesting pride celebrations. Hgtv has cancelled the show.
Let’s start with the good news. Despite rumors that Fox might give in to the powerful influence of producer Seth MacFarlane, Fox has decided to cancel the offensive, unfunny Dads. Unfortunately, there’s also bad news — the promising and endearing Enlisted (also the Chris Meloni sitcom Surviving Jack, which inspired strong feelings in few people). In worse news for comedy, the network also passed on two promising-sounding pilots, Dead Boss and Fatrick. Fatrick reunited Ray Ford with Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 creator Nahnatchka Kajhan. Dead Boss was a remake of a British comedy with Jane Krakowski and Amy Sedaris. »

New York (AP) — Terry Crews is going in for Cedric The Entertainer as new host of "Who Wants To Be a Millionaire." Crews, an actor, former NFL player and Old Spice pitchman, will join the weekday game show starting this fall, according to its studio, Disney-abc Domestic Television. He replaces comedian Cedric The Entertainer, who's hosting the show in its 12th season in national syndication. Crews has been a regular this season on the freshman Fox sitcom "Brooklyn Nine-Nine." His films include Tyler Perry's "The Single Moms Club" and Ivan Reitman's "Draft Day." His first book, "Manhood," will be out this month.

The i’s have been dotted, the t’s have been crossed, with actor, Old Spice pitchman and former NFL player Terry Crews sealing a deal to become the new host of the syndicated Who Wants To Be A Millionaire for the next 13th season, which launches in the fall. He succeeds Cedric the Entertainer, who hosted the show this season. Who Wants To Be A Millionaire is going through a number of changes, some of them cost-saving, heading into the 2014-15 season. Veteran game show and TV producer James Rowley is joining as new executive producer, and production is being moved to Stamford, Connecticut where it is expected to benefit from a tax break. I hear Crews, who co-stars n Fox’s comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine, had been exploring doing a syndicated show and met with several studios, with Disney-abc jumping in with the Millionaire offer. “Terry is engaging, »

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. »

Exclusive Updated: I’ve learned that Brooklyn Nine-Nine co-star Terry Crews is in line to succeed Cedric the Entertainer as host of the syndicated game show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. I hear Crews last week reached an agreement for the show, though the deal has not been finalized. Cedric was told of that this past weekend, following his 50th birthday on April 24. The veteran comedian announced today that he would be leaving the show after one season, citing his busy schedule as well as the production’s move to Connecticut, done as a budget-cutting measure. Cost trimming may also have played a role in the show’s host change. Crews is a busy man too, juggling his Fox series, which has been renewed for a second season, and movies including The Expendables franchise.

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, »

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 »
