ABC Considering Bringing Who Wants to Be a Millionaire Back to Primetime

millionaire-011209Given the critical and commercial success of Golden Globe-winner Slumdog Millionaire, it’s hard not to have seen this coming.  ABC is considering bringing Who Wants to Be a Millionaire back to its prime time lineup this summer.

The show went premiered on ABC 10 years ago, and the discussions revolve around an August return.   TVWeek reports that the show would likely air as a “multi-night event over one or two weeks…as a commemoration of the 10-year anniversary of the show’s American debut.”

ABC also wants Regis Philbin to return as host, but since he’s currently working on another game show, CBS’s Million Dollar Password, it’s unclear if he’d be able to.

If the show does return, it would mark it’s second revival on ABC.  Philbin hosted a few “Super Millionaire” events in 2004, with a top prize of $10 million.  There’s also a five-day-a-week syndicated version, hosted by Meredith Viera, that has been on the air for several years.

    Why not offer former contestants an opportunity to "replay" for monies to "breakeven' FOR EXPENSES incurred during audition and filming days. I gambled and lost down to $1000.00 and I would love to see ABC send some former contestants back to the Hotseat!
