“Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” gets an unexpected new host…Out with Leno, here comes Fallon…and Taylor Swift moves on from Harry Styles with a new man!
Meredith Vieira hosted the daytime version of “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” for 11 seasons, but that’s quite enough for her. And taking over her seat? Cedric the Entertainer!

A reporter for the NY Times says that NBC has been quietly building Jimmy Fallon a new studio at 30 Rockefeller Center as they get ready to move him up to Jay Leno’s “Tonight Show” time slot. Last week, Jay took some big jabs at NBC during his monologue, which didn’t sit well with the head honchos. But maybe he knows what’s up and doesn’t care about keeping the bosses happy anymore. Word is that the transition from Leno to Fallon will take place by the fall of 2014 at the latest.
Taylor Swift is way over Harry Styles. Like, WAY. She’s trying to hook up with a cute little blond surfer dude from Hawaii named John John Florence. Reportedly, she tracked him down and they’ve been talking and texting, but they haven’t actually gotten around to meeting each other yet. When John John was at a surfing competition in Australia, a reporter asked him about the relationship, and John John not-so-eloquently replied, “Uh, I’m not supposed to talk comment about that.”
