First two episodes, "The Celebrity Edition," had a NCSI star and comedian join Cash Cab riders to assist. The technique helped avoid having celebrities playing for charities and simulating surprise. HD quality seems a little better, although that might mostly be Discovery's 1080i versus replays from other channels. A new feature, in addition to'street shout-outs', is 'social-media help' when Ben Bailey uses a smart phone to quickly get numerous (accurate) answers and aid for contestants. Boils down, it seems, to using the earth's on-line population versus often unknowledgeable NYC person(s) helping. -- John
