Well because I am anal.  I did a check over the ratings this season and the last two (10 and All Stars).

THe rating of 11,649,000 is the highest rating the Amazing Race has managed with out some form of Sports overrun (be it Football, or basketball in the spring).

In fact in the last  3 cycles (since we have been on Sundays) no episode has hit over 11 million viewers without a sportsover run. The closest has been:
10.9 million for episode 9 of season 10.

We scored nearly 600,000 more viewers then the highest performing non overrun episode since we have moved to Sundays.

It is also likely that this number would beat anything from season 9.

You're not anal. I like when you check the numbers. I'm glad to see TAR doing well as the fans have found the show once again.

Remember when they put the show in TAR9 when they put the show on Tuesday nights at 9, then at 10? Not consistent. I think Sunday at 8 p.m. is the perfect time for this show.

If they include overseas viewers, Im sure The Amazing Race will be right at the top because of its popularity.

Its been shown here since TAR 3(not sure about 1 and 2 though) on a free channel that everyone can access to. I think the Singapore leg in TAR 3 helped!  :tup:

I remembered the first time I saw was Flo and Zach crossing the finish line and I was like, WOW! what a cool show and actually started on season 4, where my favourite team all-time has never changed.  :jumpy:

Still delighted that TAR has still been a hit with the fans after many seasons and with new locations and twist, hopefully it will last as long as possible.   :wohoo:

Jonnal

I love the fact that AR does well overseas, enough so to create local additions.  I loved the first seasons of Asia, while some of the tasks at first disappointed me, it very quickly (by I think leg 3) stepped it up and really felt like a very good season.

I can't wait for season two, I have downloaded the first 9 episodes, but am saving it until after this season so that I have AR during the break between US cycles.

I only wished I spoke spanish to understand the other local edition of the show.  I still watched 3 episodes, and enjoyed what I could f it.

I would have expected the finale to do less well up against a really exciting NFC Championship Football Game; it did less well because that's what happened. I went over to FOX on every commercial break and of course was taping the game for later viewing.

I think the show would have benefited from a week hiatus instead of being up against the Giants-Packers. You have the #1 market involved, plus casual fans know who Brett Favre is so that hurt TAR this week, but overall, the season has to be considered a success ratings and content-wise.

ITA.  It should've been that following week.  However, TAR was already preempted this season and it would've been too much to have that happen twice.  Of course, some of the other alternatives would've been to wrap the season up the preceding week as a 2-hour special.  Naturally, when a two-hour finale would've meant 4 teams on TES, it went to 1-hr finales.  It would've been a non-issue this year since Nic/Don and Ron/Chris were M.I.A.  Or, they could've had the show on a different night, and finally, they could've kept the show in the fall period, having it wrap up on 12/09/07, right before Survivor China.

Anyway, what a great night!  Next year, however, should the schedule actually mirror this year's schedule, the AR finale would be around 10-ish, as CBS gets the late game.  Late, but very, very helpful.
Every reality star is someone's favorite

Winning isn't everything, but it isn't considered nothing either. Otherwise, there wouldn't be a tribal council, a pit-stop, a boardroom, dimming of the lights, and so on

Roush Rules!!  :jam:


Roush Dispatch The Amazing Race's Grand Finale
   
 
Phil Keoghan greets winning team members TK and Rachel at the finish line by Monty Brinton/CBSIt’s so rare in the world of reality TV when everything ends just how I want it to. Cheers all around to the latest cycle of The Amazing Race, one of the most enjoyable runnings of the around-the-world competition in a long while. Rare for this or any show, in Sunday’s finale we were left with three teams you could easily root for instead of against. That said, my favorite team won, and the runners-up each walked away chagrined but hardly bitter, given the family bonding (between father and daughter, grandfather and grandson) that occurred along the way.

Sunday’s satisfying finale came on the heels of last week’s thrilling penultimate episode, an exhilarating nail-biter that found Zen couple TK and Rachel coming from behind (having survived a last-place finish the week before on a non-elimination leg, which forced them to perform an extra “speed bump” challenge) and squeaking into the final three. This bumped the annoying and constantly squabbling Nate and Jen, the latter a non-stop headache who earned every bit of the bad karma that resulted in her being bounced on her birthday.

The final leg, which took the teams from Taipei to Anchorage, Alaska, was pretty closely contested, although there never seemed much of a chance for Nick and Don (the grandson-grandfather duo) to cross the finish line first. Still, Don holds the record for the oldest contestant (at 69) to make it to the end. Well done. If anything, the younger player was the liability at the end, not reading the clue closely enough and leaving the gear behind at the outdoor-supply store, putting them behind on the fish-gutting challenge. (The fact that TK and Rachel made the mistake of going into the crab tank—ouch—kept things competitive.)

While Christina and Ron managed to stay ahead for most of the final leg, having found their groove (and Ron his humanity) over the last few weeks to become the dominant team, everyone caught up at the brain-teasing final challenge, in which they had to group together items representing each leg of the race. Rachel figured out the puzzle first, clinching the win as they sprinted to the finish line.

Everyone found reason to celebrate at the end of this race: TK and Rachel for coming from behind to win, Ronald and Christina for strengthening their bond, and Nick and Don for proving that age and a generation gap aren’t necessarily deterrents in this game.

The only thing I would criticize in any of this is CBS’s scheduling of this crown jewel in its reality arsenal. Rushed on the air in the wake of Viva Laughlin’s fast fade, the show burned off episodes on the Sundays before Christmas and New Year’s (when even the most devoted fan tends to have better things to do), and the finale aired on one of the biggest football nights of the year (airing directly opposite the genuinely exciting Packers-Giants battle, which went into overtime). I often get asked by frustrated fans if a network is actively trying to kill or harm a show. I almost never answer in the affirmative, but in this case, you can’t help but wonder.

Of course, the scheduling is out of the hands of those talented people who make The Amazing Race so amazing. Once again, the show proved why it has won the reality-competition Emmy every year since the category was established. No reason to think it won’t take it home again this year.

Yeah, I saw it Monday.

Oh and for the season we end with an average of 11.19 million viewers.  Which when you consider that we had the highest rated episode (without a sports overrun) since the shows been on Sunday's), that the only time we went under 10.48 million is when we aired the weekend of Christmas, New Years and against the NFC championship game, that DVR use is up on average over 10% from just last fall, then this season has been a tremendous success for AR.

Even if DVR use (for this show) was up just 5% from last year, then it would be enough to make it more watched then season 10.
