Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

    I watch the Secret Millionaire every week. I love the show and the events that happen in every day life of a lot of people. Right in our neighborhood, we have about six houses that have homeless people living there and doing work every day for their keep.
    I had just visited one of the houses today to make a small donation of food for those people.
    Please keep that show on the air as it hits us right at home where we all live in these
    United States Of America.
    While I am on here, I would like to thank all of those millionaires who had taken time out of their lives to help all these organizations in need.
    Just maybe one day I will see our community on television and a millionaire helping
    out the needy.
    Thank you very much for reading my letter.

    I am amazed that this program does not have better ratings. I find it personally inspirational and EVERY WEEK I DO FALL IN LOVE WITH BOTH THE MILLIONAIRE AND THE PEOPLE WHO ARE IN NEED OF HELP IN ORDER TO FULFILL A DREAM.

    I think our society needs to be reminded that good people are out there . If you need help, I cannot give money but I eagerly will donate my time to see that this show continues.
    Thanks Carol

    Just needs a little fix, how about helping grandparents that are bringing up there grandchildren with no… at all, they do not plan for this it just happens more often now and no one is there to help them there parents are likely dead.a lot of them do not even have enough income for there self. I’m one of those grand children and I have so much respect for all of them .

    enjoyed english version and then american version.maybe planned, but shows areal need .out there, and that there are people with real money that know where they have come from. they are willing to reach out and give a hand up. also gives exposure to real needs in our communities. please continue this wonderful program.

    Love the show – have watched since the first year it was on. Especially liked the series this year and the one that took place in Miami since it is in my own backyard. It is nice when you see that there are people around the country who will step out of their comfort zone to do good for others in a community that they are unfamiliar with.
    Please renew for another season. I think if more people were aware that this show was on it would perhaps stir up more interest. I found it my accident this season by just flipping the dial.

    Renewed – This is one of the only show I watch every week. It shows hope in the midst of despair. I work at a non-profit in North Carolina. There are millions of people across the US who have to depend on charitable organizations just to survive. I think it is great that there are millionaires out there who want to give back and help support these worthy organizations.

    Please Renew THE SECRET MILLIONAIRE…it displays what the true meaning of life is all about..some realize it now..and some will wish they realized it WHEN THEIR JOURNEY ON EARTH IS OVER..and whether we like it or will happen to the richest of the richest… there has to be enough of us to make a difference for THE SECRET’ve hit on something VERY BIG … you just haven’t landed on the prosperous page..(there’s nothing wrong with’s just when bottom line is above all else)..I mentioned earlier on a post..I have a very good idea for a spin off of this show.. it has to do with the youth of today..which I stated before is the foundation of out tomorrow…if you contact me..all it will cost you is a few minutes of your time..and YOU NEVER KNOW IT MAY BE BIGGER THAN BIG!! I’M JUST AN EMAIL AWAY..Deb Yeagle P.S. I’m getting ready to contact OPRAH on this concept for a new successful show…sometimes it’s the one in the corner that hits on the next “BIG THING”!!!

    I Really do believe that more shows should be made like this…..please do not remove ….

    Love it…..more special shows like this are needed

    I LOVE Secret Millionaire. I cry at every show. There are so many people/places that try to help the ones that really need it and in fact they are the ones that need help the most staying in business. The millionaire’s have the money and most have a good heart and get something in return by helping.
