"Millionaire" Season 8 update

The Tournament of Ten on the upcoming season of "Who Wants To Be a Millionaire" will run from November 9-20. Any ties in terms of money won are broken by how much time the contestants have banked in answering questions. The first player to go in the tourney will be the #10 player, followed by the #9 player, then the #8 one and so on.

Here are the list of the first several Experts for that season:

Week 1: John Carpenter (first-ever $1 Million winner)
Week 2: Alexandra Wentworth
Week 3: Ashleigh Banfield
Week 4: Mo Rocca
Week 5: Robin Meade (first three days), Rene Syler (last two days)
Week 6: Cokie Roberts
Week 7: Ken Jennings

Also, the new season will start a week sooner than reported- September 7th.

Not a surprise Ken's there -- Sony is involved (Millionaire is now a Sony Pictures Television product, through 2waytraffic). All licencing fees come from Sony.
