The current syndicated version of the show began airing on September 16, 2002, and was launched by Meredith Vieira, who remained host for 11 seasons, with her final first-run episodes airing in May 2013. Vieira was succeeded by Cedric the Entertainer beginning with the premiere of season 12 on September 2, 2013. As the first U.S. network game show to offer a million-dollar top prize, the show made television history by becoming one of the highest-rated game shows in the history of American television. The U.S. Millionaire has gone on to win seven Daytime Emmy Awards, and TV Guide and GSN have ranked it #7 and #5 on their respective lists of the 50 Greatest Game Shows of All Time.

Dogshitter Wants is a series of ten short cartoons broadcast during the early hours of the morning on MTV2. The programme was made by Matt Miller and Dominic del Torto in Flash. It is self-proclaimed, "Officially the most best insane cartoon." It was puzzling statements such as these, in particular, that helped it gain initial notoriety. It also sparked immediate controversy through its inflammatory name and subliminal content. Dogshitter Wants is a cult show and a vehicle for the surreal sketches and word play of del Torto and Miller. Although ostensibly concerned with jokes about cultural figures like Elton John & Michel Gondry, quite large parts of the show were impenetrably obscure, and were probably only fully understood by the creators and their immediate friends and associates, particularly those who were part of the dot com industry centred around Brick Lane in London, England. Dogshitter Wants, although only achieving minor commercial success, takes a small place in the peculiar tradition of English psychedelia and wordplay influenced by Lewis Carroll. The shows were produced in the Biganimal studios in the Old Truman Brewery in Brick Lane. The music of alternate electronica band Add n to (x) feature in each episode, but were not broadcast by MTV2 for copyright reasons. The studio created original music for broadcast under the name Terrirer Sex Tantrum. The original music remains on the Dogshitter Wants website.
