Lucky TAR 13 Talk!
« on: December 10, 2007, 07:53:26 AM »
VARIETY says that TAR 13 has been given the green-light!

Not that we didn't believe that already.....

Quote
"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.

I will go on record with my fearless forecast that AR13 may have already started. I say that because Phil is due in New York City for the finale and in Los Angeles in early February for a convention. There is not sufficient time in between for him to do AR13. However, since he left recently "scouting AR13 locations", there is a good chance that he was going to the start line. That would allow AR13 to finish just before Jan. 20. It would also allow it be ready for presentation on CBS starting in April and catching all of sweeps month(May).

You heard it right here. We'll see if my logic is sound.

That makes a fair bit of sense; it's not unprecedented to film a season while another is airing or to have such a small hiatus between seasons. I think it's either going to be in the spring (I agree with a May finale) or in the fall; BB10 takes up Sundays in the summer. Heck, I think they could even do bot hthe summer and the fall like with TAR5-7.

And as for fearless predictions, I think we'll be seeing more in the way of Asia this time; the previous few seasons have had many legs in Europe (TAR12, TAR9) or South America (TAR11, TAR7, TAR6) with TAR10 being the exception. I would also not be surprised to find a leg or two in Australia/Oceania, because it's been overdue I think.

Was it season 9 that Phil was busy filming TAR10 and did not show up at tarcon? Just curious.

Why am I thinking that BJ & Tyler represented Phil or something? My mind is fossilized  :umn:

OK I must have been thinking about something else, like some award thing in Canada and Phil was filming season 10 and BJ & Tyler represented him and accepted the award.

I like your logic. And the "looking for locations" covers Phil nicely if he did happen to be spotted in some exotic location over the next few weeks....

How about a starting line in Washington, DC on May 20 with the first stop in Zurich Switzerland and then on to Lucerne?   What great pictures I could get for you then :jumpy:
