Changes on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire

Since I was home today for Rosh Hashanah I turned on Channel 7 at 2 PM and found out that Who Wants to Be a Millionaire  was not on.  For a while I presumed that it was cancelled, but while I was surfing the web after 4 PM I found out that Chris Harrison was the new host and new rules were going to be used.  It turns out that Terry Crews had many other committments and was giving up his gig at Millionaire.  I am glad that they are reverted to graduating the questions so that a $500 question is easier than one for $50,000.  The "Jump the Question" lifeline is being replaced by the "50/50" which was in the original version of the show.

In New York City the show will be seen at 1:35 AM on WABC-7 and 4:00 and 4:30 PM at WLNY which is at Channel 55 on Time Warner Cable.  Since I tuned in a 4:35 PM I don't whether it is two different shows or one being repeated.  I'll find out tomorrow.

Meanwhile Jeopardy's  and Wheel of Fortune's new seasons begin tonight.
