Amazing Race 5 gets a green light (:

The Amazing Race 5 Gets the Green Light Source: Variety Monday, September 15, 2003

CBS has given executive producers Bertram van Munster and Jerry Bruckheimer the green light to begin casting for a fifth installment of the Emmy-nominated reality hit The Amazing Race.

The network traditionally lets its reality producers begin casting only when there's a solid shot of a pickup or renewal, particularly when it comes to existing franchises.

The Amazing Race 4, hosted by Phil Keoghan, was a solid Nielsen performer for CBS this summer in a difficult 8 p.m. Thursday slot, building ratings momentum as its season went along.


I just can not wait. (:

If we're running a pool, I'll take the clowns, or hairdressers for TAR 5.

Awesome news. Even though I didn't start watching Amazing Racing until about half way into 3rd installment, it's now one of my favorite reality series.

Hubby and I have been watching this show since the very first episode. He told me last night that we should apply for this upcoming installment. He even printed out the forms and was asking me the questions over dinner. I doubt we would get picked for the show but there is always hope.
