Cedric will join the show for its 12th season in national syndication this fall.
"We are thrilled to announce that Cedric 'The Entertainer' will be at the helm as our new host of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire," said Janice Marinelli, president, Disney/ABC Domestic Television. "With his deep roots as a successful stand-up comedian and actor, Cedric will bring his fresh approach and unpredictable fun to the show."
Disney/ABC Television Group confirmed in January that Vieira, who launched the weekday version of the game show in 2002, would depart the show when her contract expires.
Cedric is currently cocreator and star of TV Land's The Soul Man.
