Regis Philbin Hosts This Modern Update Of The Classic Game Show
Celebrity contestants William Shatner ("Boston Legal") and Aisha Tyler (CBS's "CSI" and "Ghost Whisperer") will help host Regis Philbin ring in the return of MILLION DOLLAR PASSWORD, Sunday, Dec. 21 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
Regis Philbin continues in prime time television as host of this modern update of one of television's classic game shows. Philbin has brought CBS's MILLION DOLLAR PASSWORD to the 21st century with big celebrities, big money and big stakes. Contestants team up with celebrities and have the potential to win up to $1 million. As the designated celebrity and contestant take turns being the clue-giver and clue-receiver, one word hints are given to determine that round's PASSWORD. If the player and the celebrity can work together to successfully give and receive clues in multiple rounds, the contestant may be able to guess the MILLION DOLLAR PASSWORD, and win the cash that goes along with it.
MILLION DOLLAR PASSWORD is produced by FremantleMedia North America. Vincent Rubino is executive producer.
