Nellie Andreeva at Deadline TV is reporting that ABC will give Secret Millionaire the Sunday 8pm slot for six weeks starting March 6, the Sunday after ABC broadcasts the Academy Awards. SM was originally slated for Friday’s but was never given a premiere date.

It will replace Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and the thinking is that with a good performance, it will become a permanent replacement. Nellie also reports it will be given significant promotion during the Academy Awards, which is typically ABC’s highest rated show of the season.
