Slumdog Breathes New Life Into Millionaire Game Show
Next month’s Oscars broadcast may benefit ABC in more ways than one. A potential win for Slumdog Millionaire in February could bring heightened interest to the network’s summer schedule. That’s when Who Wants to Be a Millionaire may briefly return.
According to TV Week, ABC had already been considering a 10th anniversary-run for the game show. (The program debuted back on August 16, 1999.) Now the movie about a contestant on an Indian version of Millionaire would make the decision even more timely. The current economic climate could also help as well. Viewers - like those in the Golden Globe winner - may root for someone on hard times.
Although he is not confirmed for the gig at this point, it’s expected Regis Philbin would be part of any Millionaire return.
