Regis Philbin's 'Million Dollar Password': A summer ratings winner

We haven’t even begun to see all the reality shows that’ll air on the broadcast networks this summer (like the return of Big Brother on July 13!), but some surprise victors — like a 76-year-old man — have already emerged. The Regis Philbin-hosted Million Dollar Password is the most popular new reality show on broadcast TV this summer, averaging a whopping 10.2 million viewers. CBS’ remake of the ’60 game show has been beating Fox’s Hell’s Kitchen, which is the second most popular reality program at 9.5 million.

Here’s a look at how other summer series are doing so far: So You Think You Can Dance (9.5 million viewers),  Nashville Star (6.7 million), Celebrity Circus (6.5 million), The Bachelorette (6.4 million), Fear Itself (5.1 million), and The Mole (4.3 million).
