Although CBS has reportedly attempted to discourage its stars from appearing on ABC's Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, a hilarious scene in Wednesday night's Bette, starring Bette Midler, saw Midler's character attempting to carry on a conversation with her husband while watching -- and shouting out answers to questions on -- Millionaire.
Adding to the irony is the fact that Bette airs opposite Millionaire. Last week Millionaire beat Bette's premiere in the ratings 13.9/22-11.4/18.
