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.

I agree! I guess they can't find any white people that want the job.

Love hearing hillbilly comments proving racism is far from dead. The horror, a black host!!! The networks have nearly 50 shows on in daytime and 85% of them have white hosts, anchors, or a mostly white cast. How dare they ad another black guy to daytime. I hope your white sheets all are wrinkled at the next Klan meeting, Bubba.

Haven't watched it since Meredith left....I just don't care for the guy who is always wearing a hat. I look forward to the Fall with Terry Crews when I'll give it another try. I really enjoy the show but not enough to put up with the emcee that does nothing for me. Happy for the change. AV

Maybe if you got your nose out of joint and watched it you would see he is and has been doing a great job. You would also see that he does not always wear a hat too. Meredith was great too, but you could tell she was counting the days. And who the hell dresses her in the last part of her term. They must have hated her as they dressed her in horrible clothes. Hey Meredith, I hope that was not your choice of clothing. Regis was missed as well as Meredith and now we will miss Cedric who really meshed with the people and the audioance too.

Cedric is doing a great job hosting Millionaire. Why is he being replaced? Is he being forced out or going voluntarily and why?

All of them were great. Regis is too old to do this everyday and he had his day in the sun already. Never the same when they come back. Now would like to see him as a guest host sometime, same with Meredith and Cedric.

Well, I guess I still will not watch that show. I do not even know this guy. WTF? Are there no unemployed regular game show host? The star is supposed to be the contestants.

When I'm around, I watch it. Even if I learn one thing, then my life has improved. I totally watch Jeopardy!

I so agree with you, same here. I love to learn from these shows and am so surprised when I think I am right and am dead wrong. Learn every day and this is an easy way to do it.
