Cedric The Entertainer Hired as New Host of 'Who Wants to Be a Millionaire'

Comedian and actor Cedric the Entertainer (real name: Cedric Antonio Kyles) will replace Meredith Vieira as host of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire when the show returns for its 12th season this fall. In a statement, Janice Marinelli, president, Disney/ABC Domestic Television, says: "We are thrilled to announce that Cedric 'The Entertainer' will be at the helm as our new host of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. With his deep roots as a successful stand-up comedian and actor, Cedric will bring his fresh approach and unpredictable fun to the show." Last January, Meredith -- who has hosted the daytime syndicated game show since its inception in 2002 -- announced she will not renew her contract because she wants to focus on other projects.
