It’s been way too long since we’ve seen Regis on primetime TV. But he’s ba-a-a-ack, hosting the 21st Century’s answer to an old game show. Million Dollar Password is all about the big-time: big money, big celebrities, and big stakes.
Each week contestants will pair up with a celeb, and will give one another one-word clues, trying to guess that round’s password. As each round of passwords is determined through the clues, the contestant gets closer and closer to the final password and the grand prize (that’s right: $1 million!).
Some of the celebrities who will be playing Million Dollar Password are Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother), Rachael Ray (The Rachael Ray Show), Rosie O’Donnell, Tony Hawk, Betty White, Susie Essman (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Steven Weber (Brothers and Sisters), and Shanna Moakler (Miss USA).
Up first are Harris and Ray, the first celebrity contestants to take on Regis’ Password, during the season premiere Sunday, June 1st at 8:00 PM (ET) on CBS.
