Rumor Control: Cedric the Entertainer to be Named New “Millionaire” Host?
Interesting rumor this morning from TVNewsCheck. The site is reporting that the big rumor coming out of NATPE over the past few days is that comedian Cedric the Entertainer is going to be named the new host of Who Wants to be a Millionaire. Current host Meredith Vieira announced she was leaving the show after eleven seasons on January 11th. Disney-ABC declined to comment at the time and said they will only when the host has officially signed on. Cedric the Entertainer currently stars in the TV Land sitcom The Soul Man which has been picked up for a second season. As far as game shows go, Cedric hosted NBC’s shortlived summer game It’s Worth What? in 2011.
If you didn’t get to see Cedric’s hosting experience, take a look below. What do you think of the rumor? Do you think Cedric would be a good fit? We’ve got some thoughts if this turns out to be true. We’ll wait for confirmation before opening our mouths any more.
