I want to apologize about raising a false alarm last month about my appearance on the syndicated version of Who Wants To Be a Millionaire? I told everyone I’d appear on the May 10th broadcast, and it didn’t happen. Many of you asked me what the hell happened, and for a long time I didn’t know. But now I do, and that’s why I’m bothering you again with this email.
Last week I received word from Buena Vista TV telling me I’ll definitely be on the show on Tuesday, June 27th, 2006. Which is good. In Los Angeles, I would normally appear on the KCAL Channel 9 airing of the show at 6:30 PM. Which is also good. Tonight, that broadcast will be pre-empted in Los Angeles by a Dodgers game. Which is bad. If the Dodgers get rained out, however, then my show would be on. Which is good. But I just learned the Dodgers are playing inside in the Minnesota Metrodome for the first time ever this week. Which is bad.
Anyway, I’ll shut up now. Thanks for your patience. And if someone wants to start a Super Lotto pool, I’m in. The jackpot is $86 million on Wednesday.
