ABC has announced that it’s bringing back old favorite Who Wants To Be A Millionaire starting August 9th. The revival will bring back Regis Philbin as host. The show will air like it originally did – as a two week, 11 night event. No word on whether it could make a full time comeback after that.
The timing of this seems great. It’s the 10th anniversary of the show’s original airdate, and with all of the success of Slumdog Millionaire the show will probably be embraced just like it was before…if not more.
