Who Wants to Be a Millionaire Debuts in 1999

August 16, 2012 by Marc Berman in Fun Stuff with 0 Comments

Game show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, hosted by Regis Philbin, debuted in 1999. Immediate response to the two-week, multi-episode test resulted in as many as five regularly scheduled episodes per week in 2000. Overkill led to its demise in primetime in 2002, but the current syndicated daytime version with Meredith Vieira is about to enter season No. 11.
