Millionaire on GSN
« on: November 24, 2005, 06:36:42 PM »
Hey everyone,

Next week, the January 2000 episodes of Millionaire should begin during the 5PM timeslot, but does anyone know where in the run we are during the 8PM slot.  It's at some point during the 2nd or 3rd year (hence the new intro), but I was just wondering if anyone could pinpoint the exact time of the episodes.

Anyone know of any ABC Millionaire episode guide?

Thanks,
Adam

I don't know, buy when you see Regis wearing a flag pin on his lapel it would be from the fall of '01 and later.

The episodes airing right now are the ones with the rolling jackpot.

The last episode to air during the 8PM timeslot (which was Wednesday-since theres the Amazing Race marathon on the past two nights), the jackpot was at $2,050,000.  The first contestant was a contestant named Sidney who was continuing from the previous night, and it was a Thursday.

Let me know if we can place any info on this.
Thanks.

Turns out that was well before I kept track of every episode, but it's roughly early March 2001.

Putting in $2,050,000 in Google Advanced Groups Search indicates this is the 3/8/2001 episode.

Actually, I think it was later than that.  It may have been the 25th (looking back on some Usenet posts around that time).

It couldn't have been the first episode -- I remember seeing his name at the end of the previous night's show.

Thinking back on it, I believe I was wasted during the whole of August 1999. The entire mini-series seemed to bleed together into one big day. I'll defer to your memories.

Zach was on August 25...same episode that Michael Shutterly won $500K, and set the (then) record for most won on a game show.

That record was broken about 27 times over the six months. :-P ;-)

Speaking of that, does anyone know if GSN has acquired the August 1999 run?

I'm not sure if they have the first series, but don't they have everything else from ABC at this point?

Did Millionaire with Reeg ever go to Orlando like Meredith does?  I didn't watch much towards the end of the run so I wasn't sure.

Nope, not for Millionaire.
