Strong Debut For ABC’s ‘Secret Millionaire’

Perhaps all Secret Millionaire needed was a change of scenery. The show, which had a short, modestly rated run on Fox a couple years ago, returned on a new network last night with solid ratings. Millionaire, which follows undercover millionaires in much the same way as Undercover Boss, averaged a 3.3 adults 18-49 rating in its 8 p.m. premiere. The show was No. 2 for the night behind lead-out Desperate Housewives (3.4). And it bettered usual timeslot occupant Extreme Makeover: Home Edition‘s average by a full point.
