Hit or Miss

Who Wants to be a Stupid Celebrity Millionaire? Granted it’s been on for all of 15 minutes so far, but the “Celebrity” edition of Who Wants to be a Millionaire? has even easier questions than usual. It reminds me of the “Celebrity Jeopardy” parody from SNL — Rosie O’Donnell had host Regis Philbin on her show today and they joked about how stupid some of the celebrity participants were and the easy questions they missed.

Must be in a comment-esque mood–two in one day! 🙂

Anyway, a student and I were just IM-ing each other about celebrity Millionaire and we both agree that David Duchovny MADE the show with his merciless mockery of the whole experience. I guess because he was first up, I forgot how sweet it was to watch him rip into Reege with every question. My two faves:

Regis (when only two answers are remaining):”David, you could always just make a guess.”
David: “Well, duh!”

and

Téa Leoni (David’s too-glamorous wife, used as his “Phone-A-Friend” and completely stumped by the question): “Oh honey, you are SO screwed.” I ROLLED!

I am guessing Regis must have been so relieved when washed-up kiss-ass Dana “Who?” Carvey made it…finally he could be the “smart” one again. (Kathie Lee cheated too much to even merit discussion.)

Good luck on your paper!
