Peggy Bunker is officially a resident of Colorado now.

Quote
Bunker back in Colorado on Fox 31
by Bill Husted on December 6, 2007

Now you have another reason to wake up at 5 a.m.

Well-known TV talent Peggy Bunker is the new reporter and fill-in anchor on Fox 31’s “Good Day Colorado.”

She’ll start behind the anchor desk Monday morning.

Bunker comes with some TV creds: Host of WE’s “She’s Moving In!”; host of WE’s “She House;” host of HGTV’s “Hidden Potential;” host of TLC’s “Date Patrol”; reporter on “E! News Live;” anchor of Westchester, NY’s Ch. 12 news; host of cbs.com’s “The Finish Line;” host of WB’s national morning show “The Daily Buzz” — with billboards around Chicago telling you to “Wake Up with Peggy Bunker, weekdays 6-8 a.m.”

Spoiler alert!

The only guy waking up with Bunker is her investment banker Denver boyfriend, who played a pivotal part in her move here after 10 years in NYC.

“I’m thrilled to be back in Colorado,” she says. “I’m refreshed.”

She’s a grad of CU-Boulder, where she was a communications and English literature major.

“I came out to visit and I liked Denver and I liked Fox,” she says. “I wanted to get back into morning television - and it seemed that everyone there was in a good place. It’s the place to be.”

Still no word on the lawsuit about her taking dogs from her last boyfriend.

Variety is now mentioning the success of this season and how its been green light for a thirteenth cycle.

http://www.variety.com/article/VR1117977397.html?categoryid=1071&cs=1&p=0

'Amazing Race' still running
CBS greenlights 13th season
By JOSEF ADALIAN
 
'The Amazing Race,' featuring couple Kynt and Vyxin, has picked up viewers in its 12th outing, averaging 12 million viewers in its timeslot.

"The Amazing Race" isn't slowing down.
CBS has greenlit production on a 13th cycle of the reality warhorse from exec producers Jerry Bruckheimer and Bert van Munster. Skein's 12th edition is currently airing.

Quick pickup is a vindication for "Race," which appeared to be fading in the ratings during its 11th outing earlier this year -- but earned a pickup anyway.

The Eye planned to air the 12th cycle of "Race" next year, but when "Viva Laughlin" failed, CBS opted to sub in "Race" last month. It paid off: Helped by football, the nonscripted show notched its best premiere ratings since 2005.

Overall, the current cycle of "Race" has averaged 12 million viewers in its Sundays at 8 timeslot.

CBS alternative topper Ghen Maynard said the simplicity of the show's format is what works so well.

"I like that it's the best relationship show in reality," he said. "It's all real."

Phil Keoghan hosts "Race," which is produced by Bruckheimer Television and Earthview in association with ABC Television Studio. Jonathan Littman and Hayma Washington exec produce the show along with van Munster and Bruckheimer.

I haven't found any odds in Bodog yet, but there's this odd site; apparently you trade teams like stocks and bonds.

I had to read the fine print--but apparently it is play-money. :cmas27

Otherwise we needed us some teams! :cmas26

Well I don't know where exactly to stick this, but with my 2 week issue of tvguide magazine in hand.
My take is that tvguide is "imagining" whats to take place EP9, or do they know something we don't?

tvguide magazine 12/30 (EP8)
Reality: Amazing Race~
The teams may think that running around the globe is good for their relationship, but all the trekking is about to start wrecking ones couples's closeness when their worst qualities come to the fore. Meanwhile, another team plays dirty to throw two competitors off-schedule at the airport.

tvguide magazine 1/6 (EP9)
Reality Amazing Race:
After last weeks airport fiasco, we can only imagine what drama will take place during tonights leg of the race when host Phil Keoghan bids bon-voyage to the ninth team eliminated.

It's obviously a TV Guide typo or misstatement. You can't get there from here for multiple reasons. If there were no TBCs, then what we believe to be the Japan leg on 1/6 could theoretically result in the 9th elimination. However, in the entire history of The Amazing Race, it has never gone to the final episode without 3 teams still in the running(even if one may be far behind). Since it was publicly announced that there are only 8 elimination points in AR12, there cannot be 9 eliminations. There has to be at least one TBC in the next 3 episodes.

Naw we have the three whatevers in Alaska, BRB

I can't get into this without a subscription  :meow: but this fits our Girdwood spoiler:

Quote
Idaho goes Hollywood
Three welded-aluminum boats will appear in the last episode of the "Amazing Race" on CBS-TV, says Doug Riddle, owner of Riddle Marine, which constructed the vessels. And the Travel Channel will air a "Cash and Treasures" segment about ...
Lewiston Tribune Online - Top Stories - http://www.lmtribune.com/


That gives us more confirmation of Girdwood as the last episode.....

Might look like this:

And remember that the guide told Colby's source:

"oh, she also said she thinks it was one of the last locations according to their guide."

At first I took that to mean that alaska was on their way to the final destination.  But I asked her if she meant that Alaska is
Possibly the final destination.  She said:

"i think so, she said she only remembers him mentioning 3 boats (not sure if it was 3 boats besides his or including his)."

God, I feel like I just cheated on my boyfriend.

Not really about season 12, but in the media.

So here it goes.

Entertainment Weekly has an insert for its year in review issue.  In which it picks 25 of the best websites on the net for things connected to entertainment (Tv, books, movies, and music).

At number 22 is an entry for the Amazing Race. 

And this is where I feel dirty.

Its for tarflies

Oh, well, there is always next year.

I am just surprised that they had one for the Amazing Race, which in and of itself is rather awesome.

The other tv shows they had were:
Lst #3
The Simpsons #5
The Office #7
Star Trek #11
Project Runway (the competition) #12
Heroes #13
Survivor (more competition) #12
CSI #17
American Idol (Even more reality competition) #18
Battlestar Galactica #19
Friday Night Lights #23
And
Big Brother (Just Yuck, sorry Puddin) #24

But which show has one 5 years in a row?  Just us.  And has a total of (which I didn't know) of 11 emmy wins?  Us again.
