Adieu Million Dollar Wheel of Fortune
Million Dollar Wheel of Fortune
June 2008 – June 2008
Friends, it is with hand on my heart that I inform you that Channel Nine’s Million Dollar Wheel of Fortune has in fact been cancelled. It seems that not even a quickly shambled together celebrity edition featuring the stable of Nine celebrities could keep the show on the air.
This afternoon at 4:11pm, Channel 9 issued the following press release:
Statement: Million Dollar Wheel of Fortune
Channel Nine announced today it had ceased production of the 5.30pm game show Million Dollar Wheel of Fortune.
A Channel Nine spokesperson said, “We are disappointed that Million Dollar Wheel of Fortune has not done as well as we had hoped. It is best in these circumstances to make the tough decisions and move on – so we have.
We are delighted, however, that the show has brought two great talents to the network in Tim Campbell and Kelly Landry, who are both staying at Nine.”
All-round entertainer, Tim Campbell, is the host of a new series Celebrity Singing Bee, that premieres Thursday July 10, at 8.30pm, on Channel Nine.
While talented Kelly Landry will be joining the team at Getaway as a reporter.
The final episode of Million Dollar Wheel of Fortune airs this evening.
