ABC did an awful thing ten years ago. They played Who Wants To Be A Millionaire so much and so frequently that everyone got sick of it. I have an impending sense of doom with this revitalization starting August 9. Let things that were ten years ago, stay ten years ago. ABC probably hopes they’ll see the numbers they did back then, but frankly they’re heading for a let down. Millionaire still airs in syndication. If you want to give it a real big comeback let it go away for a while, for real.
As do I. Favorite musical directed by favorite music video director? Hell yes. Do I think it’s a smart move to do another movie version of a show that’s not very popular (anymore), or accessible for that matter? Hell no.
