There’s a new host! Stand-up comedian and popular film and television actor Cedric “The Entertainer” has been named the new host of “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire,” joining the long-running game show beginning its 12th season in national syndication this Fall.
Join Cedric as he puts contestants in the hot seat to test their knowledge with multiple choice questions. If the contestant answers all 12 questions, they win the million dollar prize!
From the very first question there’s more strategy, more unpredictability, more risk and more reward. Plus there’s a new lifeline, and the road to the million got a bit shorter!
Cedric ‘The Entertainer’ is perhaps most widely known for his work on the record-breaking “Kings of Comedy” tour with Steve Harvey, the late Bernie Mac, and D.L. Hughley.
