Chris Harrison's other life
The reality epic about looking for love in weird places pulled 7.3 million viewers for its latest ep. That may not sound huge, but this is the zillion channel universe. It's a helluva lot more people than Millionaire gets, anyway. If only a few of those Bachelor fans make their way to Millionaire for this week's crossover eps, the producers will be quite happy, thank you.
Chris Harrison gave a publicity interview to E! about this week's stunt. It's kind of interesting as publicity interviews go. One thing I've always wondered - E! must have wondered about it, too - is whether the questions are specially prepared for the bachelors and bachelorettes. Not really, says Chris, though sometimes they'll slip in one cute query for a specific contestant.
Chris name drops a lot of people from his other life, and laughs about how they handle the pressure on Millionaire. You can watch for yourself over the next five days.
