Cedric The Entertainer will begin hosting Who Wants To Be A Millionaire in the fall.
Cedric The Entertainer is the new host of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, and will replace Meredith Vieira in the fall. Cedric, who also stars in TV Land sitcom ‘The Soul Man’ was part of the famous Kings Of Comedy tour with Steve Harvey, D.L Hughley and the late Bernie Mac.
“I’m truly looking forward to hosting ‘Millionaire,’ ” Cedric said in a statement. “The show is a modern-day game show giant, and the team at Disney-ABC has been great at putting the right elements together over 11 seasons. I’m excited to entertain all those who watch and play as season 12 launches … It’s going to be a good time every day!” The show, which began in 1999 with original host Regis Philbin, now airs at 10am weekdays on the WFTV-Channel 9. Viera has hosted the syndicated version fo the show since its debut in 2002, winning two Daytime Emmys for her hosting.
Hiring Cedric The Entertainer appears to be the show’s way of clawing back viewers, after losing some 10% from last year. It now pulls in around 3.2 million, less than half the audience of the rebounding Family Feud, hosted by Cedric’s old pal Steve Harvey. Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! Draw 11 million and 9.6 million respectively, though still take up early-evening slots.
You can always rely on Cedric The Entertainer to get the red-carpet rocking ahead of an industry bash. Real name Cedric Antonio Kyles, the American actor and comedian showed up at the 2013 BET Honors last week to really liven things up! The Steve Harvey Show alum looked in his element posing for photographers and chatting with fellow guests.
It was a typical grand entrance from the funny-man, though the waiting press pack were perhaps more keen to snap Avatar star Laz Alonso, who also attended the event, and Anthony Anderson from All About The Andersons. Other high profile arrivals included R&B and soul producers Jimmy Jam and Terry lewis, BET chairman Debra Lee and Ava Coleman, Whose Line Is It Anyway? comedian Wayne Brady and WNBA player Lisa Leslie and husband MICHAEL LOCKWOOD.

Celebrities and business people are snapped on the red carpet at the 2013 BET Honors. Among them is funnyman Cedric The Entertainer who, as usual, makes a grand entrance by waltzing up and down the carpet in front of the step-and-repeat. 'Avatar' star Laz Alonso and Anthony Anderson from 'All About the Andersons' also make appearances.
There's a terrific sense of righteous anger in this scruffy comedy about disenfranchised people shaking American politics to its core. But the film plays it far too safely, dealing lightly with important themes while refusing to take a real stand on anything. It also never makes the most of its likeable, fully invested cast.
Based on a true story, the film is set in 2001 Seattle, where long-time buddies Phil and Grant (Biggs and Moore) are both unemployed journalists. When Grant decides to run for city council, Phil helps with the campaign. Grant's main passion is public transportation, which he sees as a social justice issue since it's what allows lower-income people to work and improve their lives. And his counter-culture approach makes him stand out opposite the unruffled incumbent (Cedric). On the other hand, Phil's girlfriend Emily (Ambrose) starts to worry when Grant's campaign becomes a centre for frat-boy antics, including rather a lot of pot-smoking. But this populist approach is like a breath of fresh air to voters.
Watching these no-hopers take on a well-oiled political machine is pretty inspirational, especially when the characters have so much raw charm. Biggs is superb in the central role, grounding even the most chaotic scenes in earthy honesty. By contrast, Moore feels a little overwrought as the hyperactive Grant, which makes us wonder why anyone would take him seriously. Although he nicely brings out Grant's inner resolve. And both Ambrose and Cedric add complex layers to their rather thinly written characters.

Malcom and Kisha are a young couple who have just moved into the house of their dreams. However, it isn't long before both start experiencing paranormal activity on the premises and decide to install cameras around the house to catch any unusual footage on film. There turns out to be plenty of activity being picked up by the cameras such as other-worldly flatulence, thrown furniture and the couple being dangerously dragged and thrown about the house (which turns out to be surprisingly exciting). They enlist the help of various 'experts' including an outlandishly homosexual psychic, a pair of eccentric ghost busters and a group of their own thuggish friends. It soon becomes clear that the house isn't the thing that is being haunted as the spirit resides in Kisha, manifesting itself into a bizarre possession; Malcolm decides the only way to rid themselves of this dangerous force is an exorcism so he asks for help from a willing priest, Father Doug, who sets out to contact the Kisha's inner demon and save Malcolm's partner. not to mention their suffering sex life.
'A Haunted House' is the hilarious parody of 'found footage' horror flicks, in particular 'Paranormal Activity' and 'The Devil Inside'. It has been director and co-produced by Michael Tiddes in his feature film directorial debut and written by main star Marlon Wayans ('Scary Movie', 'White Chicks', 'Dance Flick') with the help of Rick Alvarez who has previously worked with Marlon as a producer in the past. It is set for release on January 11th 2013 in US movie theaters.
Starring: Marlon Wayans, Nick Swardson, Cedric the Entertainer, David Koechner, Essence Atkins, Dave Sheridan, Liana Mendoza, Jamie Noel, Affion Crockett, Marlene Forte, Robin Thede, Bobbie Lee, Damien Bray, Joel Kelley Dauten.

Instead of developing the characters or situations for comedy gold, the filmmakers instead just crank up the chaos. So while some scenes are both funny and visually impressive, this second sequel is simply too inane to make us hope there will be a part 4. Very young kids may be distracted by the hectic pacing and hyperactive characters, but everyone else will quickly be bored by the nonstop mayhem, simply because there's nothing interesting going on.
Anxious lion Alex (Stiller), chatty zebra Marty (Rock), nerdy giraffe Melman (Schwimmer) and silly hippo Gloria (Smith) are living a Lion King-style existence in Africa, although their only hope for escape has just flown away. Namely, the brainy penguins and their monkey assistants. So our heroes follow them to Monaco, where they all end up on the run from the notorious animal control agent Dubois (McDormand). They run straight into a failing circus, which they set out to bring back to its glory days so they can catch the eye of an American promoter and go home to New York. To do this means working with the current circus acts: sultry cheetah Gia (Chastain), dorky sea lion Stefano (Short) and tetchy tiger Vitaly (Cranston).
The circus premise lets the filmmakers have a lot of visual fun with the characters, most notably in a riotously colourful Cirque du Soleil-on-acid performance in London. But the plot makes no sense at all (if they can get to Monaco, surely they could get to New York, right?), and there are so many new characters that the central quartet feels almost sidelined. Especially since they've also wedged in an under-developed romance for the lemur king (Baron Cohen). Yes, it's all over the place, and being busy is not the same thing as being clever or funny.

After escaping to Africa from Madagascar, Alex the lion; Gloria the hippo; Melman the giraffe and Marty the zebra decide it's time to head back to New York once and for all. Unfortunately, they have to rely on the penguins - Skipper; Kowalski; Rico and Private - and the two chimpanzees, Mason and Phil and their combined mechanical knowledge, to get them back home. Nothing can go wrong this time, though, can it?
Larry Crowne is one of the best employees at the local big-box store where he works and he's been named as 'store employee of the month' for the past 8 months, however when Larry meets with his bosses he receives some unwelcome news. In an effort to downsize the company Larry is laid off.

Jackie Gleason and Audrey Meadows pulled it off because1) they gave a certain tenacious chemistry to their characters' head-buttingmarriage, 2) Gleason had a gift for finding humor and humanity in unsympatheticroles, and 3) it was a simpler time, when idiotic get-rich-quick schemesweren't quite such a tiresome excuse for cheap laughs.
But none of this is true of the big-screen remake starringCedric the Entertainer as conniving New York City bus driver Ralph Kramden,who spends the whole movie lying to his waitress wife Alice (GabrielleUnion) while emptying their bank account to buy an antique train car (hethinks fitting it with tires is enough to create a money-making tour bus)or to race a stray greyhound at the local track.
Cedric may split sides with his stand-up routines and politicallyincorrect topical rants in the "Barbershop"movies,but here he's sleepwalking through a routine script full of uninspiredexposition ("All we need is $20,000 for the down payment..."),stereotypical characters (loud-mouthed mother-in-law), shopworn physicalgags (cayenne pepper ends up in someone's food), contrived conflicts (Ralphhas a falling out with Ed, his dim-witted plumber best pal played by half-stonedMike Epps), pop culture references ("You're just a regular UPN sitcom,ain't 'cha, Alice?"), lucky coincidences, and insultingly easy resolutionsto all life's problems.
