It's also true for CBS in the New York Metro area. TARAsia Fan's expertise in this has proved to be correct!

PREVIOUSLY ON .. THE AMAZING RACE:

Phil: Ten teams left Salvador, Brazil, for Fortaleza. At the airport, the alliance frustrated Terence/Sarah. Once in Fortaleza, Mark/Bill used computer skills to overtake the other teams, only to be overtaken by Ken/Tina who arrived 1st. Dating couple Anthony/Stephanie came in last, and were eliminated.

Nine teams remain. Who will be eliminated next?


Credits roll.

Phil: This is Fortaleza, Brazil. The second pitstop in a Race around the world.

Kelly/Christy conf: Drying a sports bra, it "mysteriously curled itself up." They accused Starr of throwing it out the window. Kelly/Christy make like they'll pop her one.


Ken/Tina, 12:51 am, CLUE: Fly to La Paz, Bolivia.
Phil: Twelve thousand feet above sea level. They'll have to get a morning newspaper at the statue of Simon Bolivar, and search it for the next CLUE.

Mark/Bill, 12:52 a
Terence/Sarah, 1:13 a
Aja/Ty, 1:14 a

Teams take taxis in the dark and give predictable confessionals on the way.

Toni/Dallas, 1:15 am
Dallas: This Race is about getting to know each other on a different level. It's kinda cool.

Ken/Tina arrive at the airport followed closely by other teams.
Nick/Starr, get clue at 1:17 am.
Kelly/Christy 1:18 am.
Andrew/Dan, 1:22 am. More "RAPIDO!" from the non-Portuguese speaking Racers
Marisa/Brooke, moments behind, but in last.

Teams arrive (apparently together) in the dark at La Paz and realize it's about "endurance at altitude."

Nick/Starr, in 1st, ask for the statue of Simon BolivIar.
They get directions.
Other teams arrive. "It's a campout!"
It's not morning yet. They'll sleep next to Simon Bolivar!


DAWN.

Mountains in the background, teams putting on makeup and freshening up.
Nick/Starr approach Kelly/Christy about "the chill" between them.
Homegirl is all pushed out of shape about her sports bra.
A T T I T U D E ... lol
Teams take advantage of local passersby for help as newspapers arrive.
Teams scramble for newspapers. Teams read, flipping pages, skimming.
"I don't see anything."
Frat boys find HAT SALE ad. That's it!
Phil: They must make their way to the Narvaez Hat Shop and buy a traditional hat for the next CLUE.

As other teams get the clue, they leave silently so other teams can't piggyback.
Several teams still having trouble.
Walking through the streets, Mark/Bill out of breath.
One team calls a taxi.
Andrew/Dan get taxi as do Toni/Dallas, Ken/Tina.
But the streets are packed with cars and they're not moving.
On the ground is faster.

CLUE, Andrew/Dan, DETOUR.
Phil: Two different ways to navigate.
Musical march, on foot to two plazas several blocks apart. Form a band of musicians, deliver to a band leader several blocks away.
Bumpy ride, choose bicycles, use a map, ride down cobblestone streets to a plaza for the next clue.

U-TURN appears at the END OF THE DETOUR.
Phil: Teams can use the power of the u-turn only once through the Race, to make the team do BOTH detours.

As teams get the hatshop clues, they head toward detour choices.
The bike will be head-rattling along the rough cobblestone, but it looks like it's faster if you can read a map.
Looks like gathering musicians from 2 locations and taking them to a 3rd location would take awhile.

Several teams are taking taxis to their DETOUR locations.
A team in a taxi re-reads the clue: Must be done ON FOOT.
Voice: We have to go back to where we got the clue and start over.
Other teams in other taxis go forward, oblivious.

COMMERCIAL.

Terence/Sarah head back in the taxi, so that they don't violate the rule.
Toni/Dallas are having trouble in the altitude; Toni is almost ill.
After the taxi drops them off, Mark/Bill begin their bike ride. (IIRC, only the musician clue required walking, although I could be wrong.)

Frats find musicians in one location.
Marisa/Brooke walk through the streets and run into a band. "Come with us!"
Terence/Sarah make their way on wooden bikes down cobblestone ssstttrrreeetttttssssss. 
Aja/Ty and Kelly/Christy will ride bike. Nick/Starr right behind.
The curb seems to be the only bicycle brakes other than the feet.   

Another Dallas confessional. (Disproportionate confessionals for them tonight ... might be foreshadowing, uh-oh ...)

Mark/Bill choose not to U-TURN anyone
CLUE, travel by taxi to Los Titanes Del Ring.
Phil: 8 miles to the next clue.

Nick realizes that Kelly/Christie will u-turn them and he's trying to get Starr to haul it.
Marisa/Brooke have disproportionate confessional time, too, and they're taking it very easy here.
Aja mouths off to Ty about how hard it is to maneuver the bike and he mouths off back at her.   
Dallas tries to encourage Mom on her bike, to little avail.
Marisa/Brooke dancing their way along with their band! 
Frats look worried with their band.
Terence/Sarah race to the U-TURN
The band leader gives the okay.

Marisa/Brooke, 2nd, dont' U-Turn
Ken/Tina, Terence/Sarah, dont' U-Turn anyone either

Frats, no U-Turn.
Nick/Starr realize they're toast if they don't beat Kelly/Christy to the U-Turn.
Aja/Ty pass them up as they walk.
Kelly/Christy want to get there!
Three teams racing nearly even!!
Nick/Starr make up the difference!
Aja/Ty meet them at an intersection!
Kelly/Christy wipeout!! One of 'em's injured. "DAMMIT!"

Seriously isn't it half an hour plus or minus time gained or lost?

Christy is on the ground as Nick/Starr consider whether to u-turn them. They don't.
Aja/Ty don't u-turn anyone either.
Both teams take taxis to the next location.
In the cab, Aja/Ty wonder if they made a good decision.
Kelly/Christy think they're in last and don't try to U-turn anyone.
Toni/Dallas, however, were in last.
