Who Wants to be a Millionaire is hosted by Chris Harrison and is an Emmy nominated game show on which contestants try to answer 14 questions to win one million dollars. Contestants are given chances to use a limited number of lifelines to help them on questions which stump them, including asking a friend for help, polling the audience, and eliminating half of the answer choices. It is taped in front of a live studio audience at Caesars Entertainment Studios in Las Vegas. Check your local listings for the time and channel.
