Synopsis:

Spoiler:
The 17th edition of the reality series begins in Gloucester, Mass., and the 11 teams then fly from Boston to London. The pair to finish first on the initial leg receive a surprise reward that gives them a potential game-changing advantage.


90 minute season premiere. Starts at 8:30pm

Warning for East Coast viewers: It's NFL season again, so be prepared to pad your DVR if your not watching this live. CBS has a double header today and 3 games are scheduled to start at 4:15pm ET

Profiles of the teams:

The scheduled start time for 60 Minutes isn't until 7:30/6:30 tonight. Even though it's a doubleheader day, we may not have to pad if the game ends on time. I've added a half hour just in case. Either way my DVR is getting a workout tonight.

You should always pad. The late games invariably go past 7:30. Hell, the SD/SEA first half hasn't ended yet.

7:34PM and there's still two minutes to play in the CBS game. Pad by at least 15 minutes (I'd do 60 in case the game goes into overtime) for inevitable "TAR" extension beyond the 10PM start time of "Undercover Boss."

Edit: BEATEN!

Ballgame. A 20 minute pad should do it.

Anyone want to take a guess at who won the game looking at that group shot? They always shoot those after the final 3 finishes the race.

Spoiler:
the team I got in the TAR game looks to be the only team not color coordinated. Could be good for me!

I really like the casting thus far!

Cheering for the OR docs and the father/daughter team since the daughter has the same name as my daughter.

Ugh, I just started the DVR to watch this & creaky old 60 minutes is still in the middle of a feature story. I'm so done with playing chase the time slot with CBS's Sunday programming.

Season pass deleted for this & Undercover Boss.

Just pad an extra hour. That's what I've been doing on Sunday nights for years.

I will never understand why these dumbasses don't a) learn how to drive a stick and b) learn how to swim before going on the show...every season it seems like there is a team that can't handle that

There is a difference between driving a stick and driving a stick left-handed. I'm surprised more teams didn't have a problem with it.

Volleyball players are really annoying. Take a drink every time one of them says "son of a bitch".
