    Another King of Comedy is not in the millionaire-making business!

    According to reports, ABC’s popular game show ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire” has a new host. Cedric The Entertainer will the face of the show’s 12th season.

    “Steve Harvey has taken the ‘Family Feud’…I had the opportunity to host ‘Who Wants to be a Millionaire,’”the former Comic View host said. “Others have done it…Wayne Brady…they all have motivated me.”

    Cedric went on to say that his good friend and fellow King of Comedy gave him great advice for the new venture.

    “Steve’s advice mainly was just try to relax and be yourself. ‘You have to’ – he was saying, ‘you’re going to go into a lot of homes that you have no idea you’ve never been in before.’” He laughed, “Because you think about hosting a game show, you don’t know if you want to have a game show voice – like, ‘Hello, I’m Cedric the Entertainer; and welcome to Millionaire.’ You don’t know. Steve’s like – ‘don’t do that.’ That was his first thing was – ‘don’t do that, OK? Don’t do that.’”

    “I’m excited about being the guy that’s there to host you through it. And it’s been fun so far,” he said during an interview with BET. “I think it’s going to be a great way for America, who doesn’t know me, to get to know me; and for those who do, to enjoy me on a daily basis.”
