  • "Millionaire-Play It" Leaves Disney World
    Tuesday, May 16, 2006
    This is the final nail in the coffin for ABC's "Who Wants to be a Millionaire". According to insiders and staffers, "Who Wants to be a Millionaire-Play It!" in Walt Disney World's MGM Studios is leaving and being replaced with a ride called "Midway Mania" ABC is expected to lose the rights to the show at the end of this month, which is a 3 year gap between airings, so I can safely say that "Millionaire" is gone from ABC for good. Hopefully some other network will be smart and pick it up.

      That's really sad. Play it! was a great way to kick back in an air-conditioned studio. ^_^

      I hope to God Endemol picks it up.

      Why is there any confusion about ABC losing rights? My understanding is that the "Millionaire for Sale" deal includes the US territory.

      I don't get it. Doesn't Disney still have the syndie Millionaire rights? If they still have those, why didn't they continue the attraction just with the syndie rules? The attraction seemed to do quite well too.

      NBC would be crazy to not pick this show up.

      I love going to Florida. Orlando is my favorite place because it has Disney World. The Magic Kingdom is my favorite place. I think MGM will be better with a few more rides. I do not even care if I make it to the beach (unless I get to go fishing). While you are there though make sure to visit Epcot, MGM and Sea World. Good Luck.

      Well, this certainly puts Millionaire one step further away from ABC now that Caldor is selling its format & the Play It! attraction goes bye-bye. The nail in the coffin will be the expiration of its contract with ABC even though it hasn't happened yet.

      That's a shame, though it doesn't come as a total surprise.

      The attraction is operated under a special agreement with Celador. I don't know how intertwined it is with the network rights with ABC and the syndication rights with Buena Vista TV.

      I'm still unclear as to ABC's deal with the primetime Millionaire rights, as I've heard conflicting information. And I don't know how the buyout of Celador affects things. But, if the networks are smart, somebody should get the rights to primetime Millionaire and use them!
