1 I was not aware that this is still running! After Regis left was when it boned for me! -- Submitted By: (TomPettyFan) on November 30, 2018, 10:16 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I hadn't actually watched a full episode since Regis left but it seems every time I flip the channels and see it, there's a different host each time! For the love of God. And what is up with people getting the most SIMPLE questions wrong?! "Which of the following is NOT apart of the United States?" "......Hmmm. It's either gotta be Mexico or Alaska. I'm not entirely sure. Can I phone a friend?" WTF?! -- Submitted By: (King) on August 22, 2014, 4:47 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I'm currently watching the newest season of WWTBAM. Please put this thing out of its misery! -- Submitted By: (Robert) on September 14, 2010, 9:08 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 WWTBAM was perfectly fine the way it was until producers started tinkering with the syndicated format. Stuff like dumping the classic lifelines, adding a time limit to a show that didn't need to be sped up, overcomplicating the show with unneeded graphics and additions, and of course, the completely dispensable "Tournament of Ten", which to me sounded like a desperation move to force a millionaire cause they hadn't had one in 6 years. WWTBAM was at it's best when Regis hosted the ABC version, and if it wasn't for airing it too much and all the celebrity episodes, it would have lasted a LOT longer. It was simple, fun, suspenseful, and engaging. A lot of that appeal has dried up in the last few years thanks to the changes that have been made. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 1:23 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Time limit+revealing the category before the question=a poor man's Jeopardy. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 13, 2010, 5:37 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
6 The way that Celebrity editions were run did not bother me that much, it was not like the celebs were gonna keep the cash, it was going to charity, so if that extra help ment more cash for the charity, that is great. It did bone when it got overexposed like it did. Great concept, but since it was first of its kind (at least in the US), it got whored out, and everybody either went to rip it off, or even if they had something original, they got branded as a rip off. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on April 4, 2010, 9:40 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 I think it boned when they had the Celeb Editions- and evidently some egomaniacs couldn't stand the idea of their stupidity broadcast on national television so they let the other celebs 'help' them with the answers from the pit which they NEVER would have allowed ordinary contestants to do! Even though the Celeb Editions were playing for charities, they STILL should have insisted they strictly answer the questions on their own or with the show's alotted Lifelines. It seemed to go downhill from there. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 3, 2010, 4:13 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? + time limit - Phone-A-Friend = Jeopardy! ripoff -- Submitted By: (BRB_TheFireball) on March 13, 2010, 8:27 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
9 One of the things that made this show unique was the lack of a time limit. Contestants could take as long as they liked to answer a question. The bonus? It added to the suspense factor, especially when the question thoroughly stumped the contestant. Now that WW2BAM has a time limit, it's turned into yet another quiz show. It wasn't as good when Regis left, but it at least had a redeeming factor. They flushed it away by adding a time limit. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on December 3, 2009, 8:45 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
10 Should have been canceled when Regis left. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on July 28, 2009, 12:29 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
11 Would believe that Who Wants to be a Millionare is STILL on TV!? -- Submitted By: (Indigo) on July 16, 2009, 4:04 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
12 Umm, why are there two pages of "WW2BAM" on the website? And is one for the British version; the other for the American version? Uh, what was I to say? Oh yeah, I miss Regis!!!!! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on May 12, 2009, 7:01 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
