The Regis Philbin Version of Who Wants to be a Millionaire Returns

To make a long story short Who Wants to be a Millionaire premiered in the evening with Regis Philbin as the host in 1999. In 2004 a daytime version hosted by Meredith Viera premiered and is seen in NYC weekdays at 12:30 on Channel 7. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the show, Regis Philbin will be hosting the show for 11 nights over the next two weeks. I was wondering over which rules would be used for this version since new lifelines were introduced over the years.

  • The fastest finger round has returned
  • After the contestant gets the first 5 questions correct he gets the "Ask the Expert lifeline" Tonight the expert was Sam Donaldson
  • There are time limits for answering each question
  • The value of Question #10 is $25,000 as it is in the daytime version

This helps me fill the void while Jeopardy is running repeats.
