‘Millionaire’ winner scores for ‘Regis’

Carpenter helps build a 4.6 rating

For both Regis Philbin and taxman John Carpenter, “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” continues to pay off.

Monday’s edition of Buena Vista’s “Live With Regis and Kathie Lee” scored a monster 4.6 rating, 17 share, thanks to the appearance of million-dollar winner John Carpenter, who took home the purse from the Philbin-hosted gameshow “Millionaire” on Friday’s telecast. Carpenter was then interviewed by the duo about his plans for the future.

Carpenter also capitalized on his 15 minutes of fame with a surprise cameo on “Saturday Night Live” on Nov. 20, during which he uttered the phrase, “Live From New York, It’s Saturday Night!”
