As dreary January drags on, we’ve developed a slightly sick obsession that may or may not involve watching every episode of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. While the Regis years were decent, we find Meredith Vieira’s hot-mom game face perfectly suited to the show. But, of course, WWTBAM is really just a minor side project for Ms. Vieira, whose long career in journalism has made her a broadcast luminary. Tonight, Ms. Vieira will discuss how she has managed to balance her role as a mother and wife with the slings and arrows of network TV. That’s all fine and good, but we’re still mostly interested in her career as Millionaire’s hostess. We plan on asking her whatever happened with that Navy pilot, from her infamous moment of live-TV lasciviousness.
