ABC Announces ‘Millionaire’ Revival

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, the game show that once “saved” ABC (and currently airs in daytime syndication) is returning to prime time this summer. 

The alphabet net will air Who Wants to Be a Millionaire with Regis Philbin as host for a two-week, 11 night programming event in August. It premieres Sunday, August 9 at 8 p.m. and will air in the hour from Sunday through Thursday, with the finale on August 23. 

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire first debuted in a similar two-week window on August 16, 1999.
