moox03, I wish that your interpretation were correct. However, past experience tells me that the application means absolutely nothing except the casting department was given the green light to assemble potential cast members or teams. The only valid approval that is meaningful is a public statement from CBS saying that AR14 is green-lighted. I have yet to see that.

Well as much as I know you like to be a negative Nancy, I'll say that CBS gave TAR14 the green light since the eligibility guidelines call for filming between August and October. In any case, we'll have to wait and see.

Hey, moox03 you been reading any good CBS announcements recently? Like the one THIS WEEK about the greenlighting of AR14. See TAR14 folder on the Amazing Race Discussion thread for the details!

I have been trying to ctach up on back epsiodes of 30Rock that i missed. One of them, #206, has two "terrorists" of unknown origin that are in New York City doing an audition tape for the Amazing Race, which they desperately want to be on. It's cute. Go to www.nbc.com, then click on Full Episodes, then select and click on 30 Rock. there is a strip of pages, one for each episode. the sixth from the right is #206. the Amazing Race piece starts aroudn 17 minutes in of 21:30 minutes.

I don't agree. Michael McKay has used too many NELs to prolong ARA2. He has designed some of the most boring episodes ever. He gets excellent episodes every once in a while, but not consistently. When combined with his atrocious judgment in casting(unfortunately shared by whoever was reponsible for it in AR12), he rates no better than mediocre overall. The only public figures I know associated with Amazing Races who do excel are Phil Keoghan (who does Rock) and Elise Doganieri (she is the prime mover in excellent routes).

By the way, we do have confirmation from Broadcastng & Cable magazine that the premiere for TAR13 will be Sept. 28 at 8 p.m. Nice of CBS to have a consistent timeslot for TAR for three seasons now.

CBS Shows Now Available In HD on CBS.com; Intel Signs On As Exclusive Ad Launch Partner
Amit Chowdhry | Thursday July 24, 2008 
Categorized under CBS, CBS Corporation, Intel

CBS Corporation (NYSE:CBS) is launching a new service called CBS HD Gallery on CBS.com.  Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) is the exclusive launch partner of the CBS HD Gallery.  The CBS HD Gallery will include full episodes of CSI, Survivor, How I Met Your Mother, The Amazing Race, Big Brother, and The Big Bang Theory.

“The HD Gallery represents another milestone for experiencing CBS programs online,” stated Anthony Soohoo, SVP and GM of CBS Interactive.  “We’re focused on providing the highest quality audio and video that technology allows, and we’re working with leaders across the industry, and clients like Intel, to make that objective a reality.”

“Everyone knows that the world of entertainment is quickly shifting to digital video, from the creation of original Webisodes and home videos, to streaming TV shows online and an increasing amount of high-definition programming,” stated Heather Dixon of consumer marketing at Intel. “We’re loading Intel-based laptops and PCs with a variety of HD and video technologies and blazing fast processors so consumers can enjoy a stunning online experience from innovative sites like CBS HD, on the go or in the home. In fact, the timing of the CBS HD player couldn’t be more perfectly aligned with our own introduction of Intel Centrino 2 mobile technology for notebook PCs that offers native HD support and the battery life to enjoy several CBS online shows with one charge.”

The financial details of the partnership is undisclosed.  While CBS.com has made their own platform for distributing video content, NBC and FOX is using Hulu.

I have a feeling this is true. CBS is urging all of its shows to convert to HD and I think TAR 14 will be part of this. I know I've said in the past this won't happen anytime soon, but I heard from friends at the network that they want everything ready when the final conversion to HD occurs in February.

'Amazing Race' honcho teases new season
Jul 31, 2008, 03:07 PM | by Dan Snierson

Categories: TV Biz

 With the season 13 debut of CBS’ The Amazing Race looming just around the corner (okay, Sept. 28), exec producer Bertram Van Munster slipped us a few clues about the upcoming globetrot.

• The race takes 23 days, covers nearly 40,000 miles, spans five continents, and features some far-flung locales never before seen on the show, including Angkor Wat, Cambodia and La Paz, Bolivia.

• The youngest team is a tandem of two guys in their early 20s. “They’re made for television,” Van Munster says. “They’re supersmart — and they make terrible mistakes.” A pair of recent divorcees in their late 20s also vie for the million-dollar prize. “They were left with some financial debt, so they really have a motive to run around the world,” he says. And once again, expect a serving of granola — this time with a husband-wife squad of 60-something Oregon hippies. “They’re the real thing,” says Van Munster. “They come right out of the '60s. To a lot of people, it looks almost like they’re from a different planet.”


• As for the challenges, “We’ve really outdone ourselves in the department of outrageousness,”  Van Munster declares. “We have a situation in Bolivia where we have the [contestants] go down a cobblestone hill on very, very primitive bikes, and it’s just the most hilarious thing you’ve ever seen in your life. It’s a truly bone-jarring experience.” (Another must-see detour: A by-train-or-by-bus scavenger hunt in Moscow. )

• One familiar thing actually did happen on this race: The producers didn’t predict the winner. Says Van Munster, “We’ve been wrong every time, across the board.”

Five Continents?  We can't account for Australia nor Antarctica; so does that mean the race went through Africa :duno: along with North America, South America, Asia and Europe.  Don't count Oceania as it is not a continent.

I wanted to come by and give y'all and thumbs up on getting so much confirmation out of BVM in that interview at EW.com.

The timing of the interview is a bit odd; which makes me suspect that TAR 14 will probably be filming around the time CBS gears up for promotion for the new season (early September), which would be in line with the timing in the TAR 14 applications.

A pair of recent divorcees in their late 20s also vie for the million-dollar prize. “They were left with some financial debt, so they really have a motive to run around the world,” he says.
