I bet the producers of The Amazing Race are laughing all the way to the next meeting with the idiots over at CBS that initially decided to hold this back until next year. It will easily beat Viva Laughlin in viewers and is so much a better show.

I wonder how this changes the lives of the contestants who originally thought they would have to keep quiet about the show until next May? Now this should wrap up in February during the sweeps. I'm sure they'll be glad they can talk about it a lot sooner now.

Haven't missed one episode since the beginning and don't plan to.

It's about time. Unfortunately, it's back in the screwed up by Sunday football time slot. I guess I'll have to DVR Cold Case as well.

I had a feeling they were keeping this in the can to plug into the schedule at the first sign of a cancellation. I wouldn't doubt that was the plan all along, but they probably just wanted to keep their options open.

Kind of funny that Viva Laughlin got cancelled just 4 days after it premiered.

I think one of the problems is that it debuted too late. By this time people's viewing schedule is pretty full and they don't have time for another program (DVR or not), especially when it sucks!

FIVE-TIME EMMY AWARD-WINNING "THE AMAZING RACE" RETURNS FOR ITS 12TH EDITION ON SUNDAY, NOV. 4, 8:00-9:00 PM

"The Amazing Race 12" Spans 50,000 Miles Including First Time Visits to Ireland, Lithuania and Croatia

THE AMAZING RACE, winner of five consecutive Emmy Awards for Outstanding Reality Competition Series
, returns for its 12th edition on the CBS Television Network, Sunday, Nov. 4 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT).

Editors Note: THE AMAZING RACE replaces "Viva Laughlin" which has been pulled from the schedule. A rebroadcast of CSI will air in the Sunday (8:00-9:00 PM) time period on Oct. 28.

"If there ever was a season that I consider one of the best, it's this one," said Bertram van Munster," executive producer, director and co-creator of THE AMAZING RACE. "It's insanely funny, fast-paced and dramatic all at once. Teams are in hot pursuit of one another at every location and its reality television at its nail-biting best."

This season, teams will travel approximately 50,000 miles, covering five new countries including Ireland, Lithuania and Croatia.

In its 11 previous editions, broadcast in several time periods, THE AMAZING RACE has averaged more than 10 million viewers and a 4.1/10 in adults 18-49.


Jerry Bruckheimer, Bertram van Munster, Jonathan Littman and Hayma Screech Washington are the executive producers for Bruckheimer Television and Earthview Inc. in association with ABC Television Studio and Amazing Race Productions. THE AMAZING RACE was created by Bertram van Munster and Elise Doganieri. Phil Keoghan hosts.
Finally something good to watch on Sunday nights.

I'm assuming this will run 10-12 episodes and then Jericho will eventually take over the timeslot come late February or March.

It's usually 12 episodes (11 teams = 9 elimination episodes + 3 non elimination legs). Sometimes there's 1 or 2 more episodes when they stretch a leg to two hours.

Spoiler:
I think they will get rid of the non-elimination legs but just have a couple of longer legs and to be continued episodes. It's weird because many winning teams ended up being saved by the non-elimination

anyway, TAR is back!

The dating goths should be interesting to watch.

From the top left:
Azaria/Hendekea - Brother/Sister
Nathan/Jennifer - Dating
Kynt/Vyxsin - Dating Goths
Kate/Pat - Married Episcopal Ministers
Lorena/Jason - Dating (Differences have caused "friction in their relationship")
Nicholas/Donald - Grandfather/Grandson
Rachel/TK - Dating for almost one year

From the bottom left:
Ronald (Who's you daddy shirt )/Christina - Father/Daughter
Marianna/Julia - Sisters
Ari ("Catty, not afraid to speak his mind")/Staella - "Best Friends"
Shana/Jennifer - Friends

"This year the Race spans the globe from Ireland to Croatia"

I'm happy that there's not a "Athletic All-Male" team this season. I wish there were more teams from outside California, but we'll see how it goes.
