The previous episode, the second one in its debut season, saw Teri Hatcher, Drew Carey, and Chrissy Metz fight it out for a whole million dollars that will go to a charity of their choice, but the fun doesn’t end here. The ABC game show, a spin-off of the original NBC ‘Wheel of Fortune’, has an exciting night planned for viewers, with an even more thrilling line up of comedians and entertainers.
The episode airing on January 21, at 8 pm on ABC, will see Rob Riggle, Joe Tessitore and Jeannie Mai compete for a chance to win up to $1 million.
