Where in that would the last million dollar winner fall?

The million dollar winners were both in the second season, IIRC.

The last was in May of '03 so that would've been first season for both.
Still crazy after all these years...but that's okay.

Schedules at Buzzerblog show it starting at "1001", so I'd assume the first season.

Let me preface the following by saying that I am only adding this for the sake of this discussion, and am in no way attempting to be Zach Version 2.0. If that happens, I humbly accept a brutally verbal lashing from anyone willing. :)

Now, when Millionaire first aired in 2002, the first season was on CBS 2 Chicago (the remainder of the current run has since aired on WGN). Kevin Smith was the first Millionaire 6 years ago this month, and that episode aired on CBS 2. Nancy Christy's win was indeed in early 2003, which puts it in the same season. So I am sure these episodes will surface in the coming weeks.

I don't get why you people hate Zach Horan so much and act like he's the scum of the world.

I think it's actually pretty cool that someone has an impressive memory on certain game show moments, than I could ever have.

Welcome once again to Words Have Meanings.

I don't think many people here "hate" Zach nor does anybody act like he's the "scum of the world".  His obsession -- within an group that's already pretty obsessed, mind you -- got him a reputation for being annoying, but that's not nearly the same thing.
This has been another installment of Matt Ottinger's Masters of the Obvious.
Stay tuned for all the obsessive-compulsive fun of Words Have Meanings.

Seconded.

I'm not trying to turn this into a Zach-bashing fest, but personally, my beef with him had nothing to do with his knowledge of game show (and to a lesser extent, TV history). Several other posters (Mark Jeffries, Curt Alliaume, Chris C. and King Ottinger off the top of my head) offer very extensive television knowledge and always share great stories.

One glaring difference: they don't obnoxiously try to be know-it-alls and appoint themselves the kings of all things television history. Zach's efforts to act as if he were above the forum rules don't sit well with me; neither do the stunts he pulled following his ban. He basically brought his amended troll behavior from ATGS over to this board.

Now celebrating his 19th season on GSF!
