Gifford Wants Seinfeld
If Jerry Seinfeld isn’t busy next week, Kathie Lee Gifford has an invitation for him: sit next to her on “Live!” Gifford’s co-host, Regis Philbin (you may have heard of him) starts a vacation on Monday, so on yesterday’s show, Gifford offered Reege’s seat to Jerry, whom she saw at a Broadway opening on Monday. So far, there’s been no comment from the comic. As for today’s news nugget on Regis’s other show, “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire,” it’s been reported that the Rupert Murdoch-owned News Television India is hoping to cash in on the quiz show’s craze. The Indian version, which hopes to kick off in June, will offer a top prize of $230,000 and be called (in Hindi), “Who Wants to Be a Ten-Millionaire.” “The term ‘millionaire’ is not common in India,” a News TV India exec told reporters.
