Celebrity hosts to sub for Vieira on Millionaire

The New York Daily News is reporting that the syndicated version of Who Wants to be a Millionaire will be using celebrity hosts to fill in for Vieira, who is pulling double duty with Millionaire and the Today show. "They're just filling in for a couple of days," a show spokeswoman tells reporter Richard Huff.

When the spokeswoman says "a few days," she means a few days of production; because up to five episodes can be taped a day, that means the guest hosts might host in one-week blocks. No real word on who the celebrities are or when their episodes will air. Judging by Vieira's taping schedule, in which the entire season will be completed by December, those weeks could air anywhere.

Think Regis might show up? I wouldn't mind seeing him in his old chair for a week.

Regis? Prolly costs too much, unless there's a prime time special in it for him.

Rosie O'Donnell would probably pay to guest host. The problem is you have to pick a star willing to do the show in what, New York City, right? I'd just grab the first cable news presenter that didn't have a contract clause forbidding it and call it a day.
