Who Wants to be a Millionaire - New Season with Changes

After many years of being shown at 12:30 PM on Channel 7 the show was moved to 2 PM.  So many times Millionaire was pre-empted when the 12 noon news was expanded since there was a major event.  Secondlym Terry Crews is the new host succeeding Cedric the Entertainer.  Did Cedric quit or was his contract not renewed by the producers of the show?  I guess we'll never know.  In any event my favorite host was Regis Philbin.

There is a new lifeline called +1 replacing one of the jumps.  The contestant has a friend in the audience that he/she can ask to come over to assist.  It replaces the original phone-a-friend.  The problem with that lifeline was that the friend at home can have a computer and Google to find the answer within 30 seconds.

I thought that Jeopardy would start its season today, but there was a rerun of a kids tournament.  I assume new shows will be aired starting next Monday.
