What's Hot On TV Tonight – Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?

It’s baa-aaaack! And so is Regis. To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the game show, they’re bringing it back with what seems like the perfect amount of time. Throughout the eleven nights, both celebrities and non-celebrities will play. I think what killed this show before was while we all loved it at first, they then put it on all the time, just as they did with Deal or No Deal, and they ended up killing both shows. It was too much. But eleven episodes will be just enough for us to remember why it was that we originally fell in love with this show.
