Let the Game Show Wars Begin

Who wants to challenge "Millionaire" is the story of the winter TV season. Following the success of ABC's "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire," the other networks have scrambled to get game shows into production and most will begin airing this month, in time for the return of "Millionaire." Fox already debuted "Greed." NBC is premiering its revamped version of "Twenty-One," with Maury Povich as host, while CBS is preparing "Winning Lines" with host Dick Clark. The networks are banking on audiences being game-crazy. Variety reports that over the next two weeks, at least 14 hours of quiz show programming will appear on network television.
