Disney-ABC has found a new host for Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? According to Deadline, comic/actor Cedric The Entertainer has signed a 3-year deal to take over for outgoing host Meredith Vieira. Cedric, star of TV Land’s hit Soul Man, will start his hosting duties for the syndicated game show in September.
Ten years after her first stint on General Hospital, Meredith Vieira is back. TV Guide Magazine's Michael Logan spoke with the former co-host of The View and The Today Show to get the skinny on what her character Bree Flanders will be up to when she hits Port Charles on Dec. 14.
TV Guide Magazine: You were such a hoot as Bree. What's become of our girl?
Vieira: Well, she's no longer providing comfort to men! Lynn Herring returns to the show as Lucy Coe [also Friday] and it turns out Bree is her senior vp of marketing at CoeCoe Cosmetics. Sabrina and Felix are desperately trying to get a meeting with Lucy but first they have to go through me. [Laughs] But, really, not much has changed for Bree. Prostitution. Makeup. Hey, it's all sales.
One of America's favorite talking heads is on her way back to Port Charles. Former Today and The View co-host Meredith Vieira will be checking back into General Hospital later this season. Here's what she dished to TV Guide's Michael Logan in regards to her upcoming, 50th Anniversary tie-in trip to Port Chuck:
"We have stars from GH playing Millionaire later this season, then I'll go over there to do a role. The last time I did GH was 10 years ago. They had me playing a whorehouse madam! [Laughs] God only know what they'll do to me this time!" READ MORE
