“Who Wants To Be A Millionaire” returns for a new season on September 14, 2015, with a new host – Chris Harrison, of “The Bachelor” franchise – and a return to the format that made the show a phenomenon when it debuted on American television!
After developing a deep connection with the TV audience from his years with the wildly popular series “The Bachelor,” “The Bachelorette” and “Bachelor in Paradise,” the versatile Harrison will bring his charm and talent to the iconic game show as it enters its 14th season in national syndication.
This season, producers are bringing back the drama to the long-running franchise by reintroducing the ladder format, with the tension and the difficulty building as each contestant makes his or her way closer to $1 million dollars. The 2015-16 ladder features 14 questions, with new dollar amounts for the early questions.
Three lifelines are available to each contestant as they navigate their way up the ladder. Ask the Audience – one of the show’s three original lifelines – remains this season. Also still in play is Plus One, which creates its own drama as the companions step onto the stage and are put on the spot – can they help their contestants answer a challenging question? Returning to the show is 50/50, which removes two incorrect answers from the game.
“Millionaire’s” 14th season also will offer more exciting specialty weeks throughout the season–check your local listings for time and channel!
