Cedric the Entertainer named host of 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire'
Yes indeed — they're going in a different direction at "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" -- Cedric the Entertainer will replace Meredith Vieira. Just announced and was expected, but this does mean a different show (right?) Vieira hosts through the end of this season; Entertainer picks up in the fall:
“I’m truly looking forward to hosting ‘Millionaire,’” Cedric stated. “The show is a modern day game show GIANT, and the team at Disney-ABC has been great at putting the right elements together over 11 seasons. I’m excited to entertain all those who watch and play as season 12 launches . . . It’s going to be a good time every day!!”
