Greed was an American game show hosted by Chuck Woolery that aired on Fox from November 4th, 1999, to July 14th, 2000. Following the success of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, Fox attempted their own primetime hit where once contestants could possibly win over $2,000,000. Unfortunately, Greed did not capture the success of Millionaire and was cancelled in July 2000 after just 44 episodes. Despite the lacklustre success, some of the episodes have resurfaced.


In the ever-expanding market of entertainment, tv shows have come and gone. One popular genre that has allowed people to win amazing prizes is that of game shows. In 1999, ABC launched the successful game show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire to very positive ratings and reviews. Fox, wanting to up the competition, launched their own television show Greed that same year. Whereas the top prize in Who Wants to Be a Millionaire was a total of $1 million, the top prize for Greed would be $2 million.[1][2]


Greed first debuted on Fox on November 4th, 1999, with modest success. While successful, Greed was not the exact hit that Fox was aiming for, and the show was cancelled after the conclusion of its first season in 2000.[3] In 2002, the television station GSN picked up the syndication rights to re-run Greed. Re-runs would air on GSN from 2002 until 2008.

GSN picked up Greed in 2002[4] and aired every episode except for That '70s Greed Part 1 due to it being only a half-hour long; however, both parts would be uploaded to YouTube by "Game Show Wonderland+" in 2021. Greed hasn’t aired on GSN since 2008, and most of the episodes have not resurfaced on the internet but most of the missing episodes exist among private collectors.[5][6][7]
