Tonight, he makes his national TV debut as host of ABC's Merv Griffin-produced "Monopoly"-a classic big break, which even Reilly calls amazing.
Worth more than the camcorder and Nintendo set, though, was the impression Reilly made on the show's producers, who asked him to come back as a contestant for the "Monopoly" pilot.
