    It seems like Steve Harvey and Cedric the Entertainer… the Original Kings of Comedy both brought new life to fan-favorite game shows! Steve increased The Family Feud ratings greatly and Cedric is surprisingly good for Millionaire and helping its garner some good ratings as well!

    @Tom that is one of the most racist comments on this site I have ever heard and I am offended! Because the ratings increased, you match it to lower class black women waiting on food stamps and welfare, why because they are the only ones “stupid” enough to watch Millionaire with Cedric the Entertainer? Funny how when black people actually roll in the ratings as Steve Harvey and Cedric the Entertainer has done for their respective game shows its contributed to lower class African Americans yet that stale Meredith Vieira did absolutely nothing for the show in her last few years there! Way to go, you closeted racist!

    I agree that Cedric is a horrible choice for host, and I do not believe the ratings. In fact, I believe they are so bad ABC has flooded the Internet with these stories to promote Cedric. I stopped watching the first time I heard him bellow “sho me da moneeeeyyyyy.” Seriously ABC. What were you thinking? You went from one of the classiest woman on TV to an obese hood rat? Big mistake.
