No word on who will take over for Vieira. One Response stefanstavros January 11, 2013 I hate to hear this! I’m a big fan of Meredith Vieira, and she has brought A LOT of class, humor and heart to Millionaire. I actually almost went to NYC to audition for the show of course to try to win some cash but equally as much just to meet Meredith! She’s a gem.
