WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE to Air Halloween-themed Shows, Beg. 10/29

WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE will air Halloween-themed shows all next week (October 29 - November 2), including a special episode on Wednesday, October 31 featuring host Meredith Vieira dressed as a cat and contestant Jason Hoffman dressed in drag as…. "Meredith Vieira," complete with a pink dress, blonde wig and high heels!

MILLIONAIRE airs weekdays. Check local listings or go to http://www.millionairetv.com for time and channel.

All week, contestants will have an additional lifeline called "Crystal Ball" which enables them to see the monetary value of a question before answering it. Traditional lifelines also get a Halloween makeover, as "Ask the Audience" becomes "Pick the Audience's Brain" and "Jump the Question" becomes "Bat the Question Away." The holiday-themed lifeline names and icons were chosen by MILLIONAIRE's Facebook fans.

The MILLIONAIRE set got a spooky makeover for the Halloween episode airing on October 31, including a MILLIONAIRE graveyard with tombstones, pumpkins, skulls and rats, all under the haze of an eerie fog!
