Terry Crews new host of 'Millionaire' game show



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.

Meredith Vieira launched the syndicated version of "Millionaire" in 2002 and remained host for 11 seasons. Regis Philbin emceed the prime-time ABC version from 2000 to 2002.

Why???????? Was there NO ONE else? Look when you get to the point when all the hosts are comediens or comedic actors, it's time to throw in the towel. You obviously want them to carry the show. Just shaking my head.

Game shows I quit watching because the hosts are duds- Price Is Right, Who Wants to Be A Millionaire, Lets Make a Deal. These guys just don't have what it takes. Their timing is just not there like the people they replaced.

Meredith was great and made it difficult for anyone following her. Any comic will have a difficult time on this game show.

I don't know if Terry Crews will be any better. Cedric just didn't have what it took and the hats were annoying - like he was trying to clone Steve Harvey fashionwise. Meredith was a hard act to follow.

I have nothing against Cedric but he just did not work for me as host of this show. It is my dream to appear on it one day. If we can't have Maredith I am certainly willing to give Terry a look see.
