Comedian Cedric the Entertainer has been named the new host of “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.”

The “The Original Kings Of Comedy” veteran will replace Meredith Vieira, who is leaving the game show at the end of this season.

The 48-year-old comic, who recently guest starred on BET’s “Real Husbands of Hollywood,” will host “Millionaire’s” season 12 starting this fall.

“With his deep roots as a successful stand-up comedian and actor, Cedric will bring his fresh approach and unpredictable fun to the show,” said Janice Marinelli, president, Disney-ABC Domestic TV.

The Jefferson City, Missouri-bred talent joins fellow comics Steve Harvey (“Family Feud”) and Sherri Shepherd (“The Newlywed Game”) in the game show space.

In addition to taking over at “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire,” the funnyman will continue to star in his TV Land sitcom, “The Soul Man.”
