Last December, FOX aired Secret Millionaire — a reality show about wealthy people who go undercover, looking for worthy people to award money to in distressed areas.
Though a version has been running successfully in the UK for four cycles, the series wasn’t a ratings winner in the US. FOX cancelled it after a six episode run.
Apparently ABC believes that they can do a better job with it. The Hollywood Reporter has reported that the alphabet network has picked up the show for six episodes. It’s believed that it will be a better fit for ABC whose reality shows tend to have a more positive angle.
What do you think? Are you more likely to watch a show like Secret Millionaire on ABC than on FOX? Does the network make that much of a difference?
