    My last post. As one heading said, "TERRY'S YELLING IS BRUTAL" +++

    Mr. Cruz was simply ear-drum bursting loud but now he's shown that he simply likes/wants to make noise. Example: A big money quest. is answered, the crowd is clapping but he has to be louder than the audience by dragging the $ amount out . "10,000 dollaaaaaars"!! "This will sum up everything I've written. I cut my computer on and forgot why I did it and low and behold, Mr. Crews was introducing a guest and he was so loud he jogged my memory and that was to log on to Millionaire reviews and see what others had to say about his loudness. Producers, that shows that you have to ask him to QUIET IT DOWN!!! This, I just added; Cedric was painful to listen to and the new host is so loud I'm glad when the horn blows. There must be new, young management on Millionaire. (the new host can be tolerated if he quiet it down). Producers, would you *PLEASE* ask the new host of this 2014 season to quiet it down. Please!! He's straining his vocal cords and my ears!! He can tone it down. Every answered question doesn't have to be followed by "EXCITEMENT"!! The producers must not have talked to the new host about the reviews Cedric received and the host must not have read them because the new host yells about everything. Millionaire now seems like a game show you'll find on the "Game Show Network" for children where they talk loud and show excitement about everything to stimulate the children. Lastly, he makes so much noise after just about every answer (like Cedric) that he's winded and has to read the questions at a low tone (like Cedric)!! I'm watching Millionaire now and every word he used he yelled just to call a member of the audience down!! DARN-IT!! *OVERKILL* is the word for his noise, making his "EXCITEMENT" seem insincere and non-credible. Had to mention this (1-27-14). Not to mention how Mr. Cruz tells guests they have a lifeline or can use more than one lifeline at the most inopportune times (as soon as they say what they "think the answer is). Many have changed their minds and wasted a lifeline. One person decided to take the money after he mentioned lifelines (she would have been right). PRODUCERS, STOP THE MADNESS!! My last post. 12-30-14: Mr. Cruz's YELLING is ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS.
  • Contestants Annoying

    Do we have to hear their complete thought process while they come up with a response?

  • What the heck was he wearing!!!???!!!

    This guy that hosts, don't even think I know his name, is flamboyant and narcissistic flashing his pecs and talking just to hear himself talk. And his outfits are ridiculous can't even take the show seriously anymore ugh!

  • Millionaire!!!

    I hope this gets to the executives who run "who wants to be a millionaire". If not could you please forward it to them.

    I have watched this show for many years. But i am currently not enjoying it. I am very concerned about what has happened. I think it has deteriorated to a loud, less substantive and more carnival show.

    My initial concern was the new lifeline called +one. It is of little help compared to ask the audience or jump the question. It can be embarrassing for both the contestant and the +one. You should go back to 2 jumps and one audience.

    Terry Crew is operating at full voice all the time acting like an over energized carnival barker.

    I don't know what other changes have been made . criteria for choosing contestants, but many more are walking away with $1,000. Are you trying to reduce the money that is awarded to contestants?

    I send this because i don't want to stop watching, but i am reaching that point. I hope my comments are of some value.

  • It used to be good!

    I used to enjoy this show, but no more. Hardly anyone ever gets past the first part anymore, and some of the questions are ridiculous things that nobody would know. Also, it doesn't look like they pick the smartest people. Some people talk too much instead of just answering the question.

    I really like Terry Crews on Booklyn 99, but not on this show!
  • Thanks for ruining my fave trivia show

    If I watch now I have to turn the volume off for at least three quarters of the show because Terry Crews is so repugnant. He prances, he screams, he flexes his pecs - he makes ridiculous faces. I have never loathed a host more (and I was just getting to like Cedric the Entertainer). Get rid of this disgustingly obnoxious man!
  • Yay!! New Host Next Sesson!!!

    I Might just start watching Millionaire again!!!

    I'm so happy I found this site with reviews of the hosts of Millionaire! I have always loved this show and looked forward to watching every day until Cedric started hosting. He added nothing to the show and I was so happy when he was replaced with Terry Crews. That lasted for about five minutes. He is the WORST! Please stop yelling!!! I just read that Chris Harrison is slated to replace Crews in the new season. You have NO idea how happy this makes me!!! Thank you to the producers of this show for finally listening to the viewers!
  • Please get rid of Terry and put me out of my misery

    His voice is obnoxious and his attire is even worse. He's also not pleasant to my eyes.
  • puke time

    if he flexs his pecs one more time I am going to puke!
  • Will host

    horrible host can't stand him or the way he talks not a good fit for the show please find a new host
  • Please stop yelling!!!

    I'd love to know if someone who has power reads these messages but here it goes anyway:

    I used to like this show a lot. But I have stopped watching it with Terry Crews as host. Please. Stop. YELLING. It would make a world of difference and would probably have people turn it back on. He seems like a nice guy on talk shows and stuff so I know he can do it. Just Stop.
  • Wants a host to be obnoxious

    I was looking forward to watching one of my old favorite shows. Complete disappointment, an understatement when Who Wants to be A Millionaire Host unleashed an obnoxious, stomach-turning performance. Sorry to say it was just that mad.
  • Headache

    I always need to have my remote close to control the volume. Terry really needs to quit screaming!
  • Someone needs to tell .....

    We use MICROPHONES! You aren't in a stadium where you have to scream to be heard. Look at the tapes of your show and LISTEN TO YOURSELF! You sound like someone who's possessed! What the hell are you thinking with your yelling all the time? Cedric was no 'entertainer' he hollered too and surely wasn't funny, Maybe you listened to him and thought what he was doing was the way to do it. I can't imagine that the producers endorse this crap, but then again, if they have a hearing deficiency, you must sound just fine,,,, TO THEM! Bye Bye Millionaire you'll never have the opportunity to scream at me again. Color me GONE! Too bad that 'score' has no minus scale....
  • Can NOT watch this show!

    Terry Crews is completely ANNOYING! I can stand to hear him scream and watch his silly antics.
  • awful, just awful

    You want to like him but he's just so loud and annoying. The producers should tone him down and he and the show would be so much more watchable. Yelling and screaming isn't a display of enthusiasm.
  • Un professional , professional??

    The last 2 Hosts have been terrible?? Annoying has the right assessment of host and if continued will lose a lot of viewers, You have already lost my family Good bye, Terry is not funny, not smart, and not very professional, Sorry all I can say is DUMB??Paul Bayda
  • whoops

    Your answer options were wrong Bryan Adams sang Summer of 69. Luckily she didn't lose her bank
  • you made a mistake

    who sang "the summer of 69" your answer was ryan adams his name is bryan adams.
  • Worst Host on TV

    I do not understand why a respectable show like Millionaire would hire a clown like terry cruz . He may be a nice person but he makes a fool of himself and the show every episode. Please get rid of him!!!
  • Mute the yeller

    Terry is worse host ever. He yells constantly. I mute the TV

    Please please tell me he is signed for 1 season only

    Hate his clothes

  • why doesn't anyone win the million?

    I love Terry as the host. I think he's the best host so far. I'm feeling discouraged from watching because it feels like every contestant is set up to fail. Only one person, that I'm aware of, has won a million dollars. They should rename the show to, Who wants to win thousands of dollars. Kyle Jennings couldn't even win the million. So disappointing.
  • old yeller

    please make Terry stop yelling, I have watched millionare for years, and I Am trying to continue, but I have to start changing the channel , PLEASE HAVE HIM STOP YELLING so I can still enjoy my show.
  • Everybody Hates Crews

    Where do I begin? His ridiculous entrance? His obnoxious voice? His undersized oddly-fashioned clothes (yes, we know he has muscles)? Actually, I think that sums it up. He doesn't deserve much more of my time. Just get rid of him, please.
  • Terry Crews is loud and rude and all about Terry Crews

    please please please tell me you only signed him for a year in which case I can't wait for it to be over!

    Didn't anybody lay down any ground rules for this guy... Like you don't have to yell all the time, or he will grab the contestant and pull them so hard it looks like you're rattling thier fucking teeth... some of them look terrified!

    I know I'm terrified... I'm terrified you sign this guy for more than a year, please say it ain't so... Like someone else to read on here, pay him off, get rid of PLEASE REPLACE TERRY CREWS WITH ANYONE ELSE YOU CAN FIND.
  • Terry Crews is BRUTAL!!!!!!!!

    I have never written about any tv show in my life (60's) until today. I had to look all over just to find a place to comment. Dont know why Millionaire doesnt have an email, or maybe I do. Just as some comments I see here, I agree that Terry Crews is BRUTAL. Why someone would want a host to just yell ALL the time?? He doesnt just yell "Lets play millionaire" once at the beginning, but all the time. And when he sees the 10g,15g,25g prizes, he just SCREAMS as loud as he can. REALLY!! Plus how he grabs everyone. Disgusting. He has to grab EVERY contestant, and plant his face cheek to cheek in front of the camera. But the screaming is the worst. I, like others here, use my mute button regular, or just fast forward as I tape the show. I will probably stop taping/watching as I am tired of having to fast forward so I dont have to look at his stupid facial expressions. Its to the point that I cant stand the sight of him. Its amazing how a great show can be ruined by a host. I DONT WATCH THE SHOW BECAUSE OF THE HOST. Whoever hired him should be fired!!! Hopefully someone figures out that this guy needs to go. And the turtle necks he you kidding me. Take a look in the mirror Terry. But he probably does, practicing his stupid face when he SCREAMS at the camera. Terry Crews sucks, and sucks bad.
  • The host is horrible

    Can you please replace this man cannot stand his hollering and the way he bounces onto stage pay him out and put someone there that is really professional. when he screams you can see his tonsils the only thing good about him he dresses well thanks plz listen to to all these people!!!!

    Stop Terry's yelling -- the show used to have class and now it is trashy as they come. Also, why does he promote his what is with his running on stage hope he falls flat on his chest. How is it that he twitches his chest (breast) muscles to give Barbara Courtland if she is right or wrong and doesn't do that for other celebrity contestants. Twitching his muscles degrades this show and the producers for allowing it. GET HIM THE HELL OFF THE SHOW.
  • Please get rid of him!

    My mom who used to love this show can no longer watch it because of Terry Cruz's screaming. It's really unfortunate when she used to set her watch to the show,and now can't enjoy it because of his obnoxiousness. Either get someone back like Meredith or Regis,or just get rid of the show.
