More than two decades ago, a game show dazzled audiences so much that it had no choice but to air in primetime. Who Wants to be a Millionaire?—at that time hosted by Regis Philbin—made trivia a thrilling spectacle, and now it’s coming back.
Hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, this one-hour primetime special will be just as exciting as the original series, complete with lifelines, tense music, and a host who only makes the astronomical amount of tension worse. Big time celebs will face the heat in this version, winning big bucks for charity. All in all, must-see television.

How to stream Who Wants to be a Millionaire? online
The following streaming services have ABC in their channel suite, or the case of Sling, can be accessed using some secondary hardware.
Hulu with Live TV is one of the most popular ways to stream live TV, perhaps because you gain access to a massive library of on-demand content including classic and current TV shows, movies, not to mention Hulu’s original programming. As far as live-streaming goes, you’ll have a ton of local, entertainment, and sports channels to flip through, including HGTV, a full suite of ESPN channels, Cartoon Network, FX, and even deep cuts like Nat Geo Wild and Syfy.
For a more à la carte service, look to Sling TV. It offers two cable packages, Sling Orange and Sling Blue, each of which costs $30 per month. If you grab them both (Sling Orange + Blue) you can save $10 per month. Sling Blue offers more bang for your buck with over 40 channels, including sports necessities like FS1, NBCSN, and NFL Network. You’ll also gain access to the usual cable mainstays like Food Network, Discovery, Cartoon Network, SYFY, and FXX. Whichever package you choose, you can save $10 on your first month. Here’s the complete guide to Sling TV channels.
Currently, Sling is also run-in a promotion that allows folks who want to dip their toes in the world of online Live TV streaming to try its service during primetime with its Happy Hour Across America promotion. From the hours of 5pm to midnight, Sling will be totally free. For more information, check out the full offer details.
There’s a good chance that you’re already looking to AT&T for your wireless needs. The second you sign up, you’ll gain instant access to 45+ channels, including local channels and even free HBO in the Plus and Max channel suites. Plus, it comes with CloudDVR, which lets you record up to 20 hours of TV per month. One account works on two devices, but you can add more devices for only $5.
YouTube TV is a great solution for families because one subscription can add up to six accounts, and each account comes with unlimited cloud DVR. You can’t beat the variety, either: There are sports channels like NBCSN, NBA TV, and four ESPN channels, while Disney, Disney XD, Disney Junior, and Cartoon Network will keep any kid (or kid at heart) busy for hours. It also comes with a few Spanish-language channels like Telemundo and NBC Universo. AMC, BBC America, and IFC are there too, so you won’t miss out on all that prestige TV.
