Short Cuts: A Chinese Millionaire, Obama and More!

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire will make its debut in China in May, says Reuters — but with only celebrities competing (to comply with local regulations), and perhaps a different title, as 1,000,000 yuan only add up to US $129,000.... Illinois senator/presidential hopeful Barack Obama hosts Crucible of Courage, a Biography Channel special commemorating Black History Month, on Feb. 22 at 9 pm/ET.... This sounds important to somebody: Famed tenor Placido Domingo will, for the first time ever, sing the baritone, title role in Verdi's Simon Boccanegra at Berlin's Staatsoper Unter den Linden in 2009, his rep tells the AP.
