Cedric the Entertainer Scores “Millionaire” Gig
He’s always up for a challenge, and Cedric the Entertainer has been named as the replacement for host Meredith Vieira on ABC’s “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.”
And given the 10% decline in ratings over the past year, producers are likely hoping the “Barbershop” star will infuse the format with new life.
Cedric told press, "I'm truly looking forward to hosting Millionaire. 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!" he added.
