So, there is NOT gonna have any TAR this fall?

This is sad but I kinda see this coming. No surprise at all with the low rating and the dead time slot. Viewer's interest has been declined a lot over the recent seasons sure didn't help this show to survive at all.

Hopefully this help pressure WRP to coming up with better designs and stuff or else I think this is gonna be the end of this once-amazing reality.

unless im missing something the fact its getting a mid season premier suggests only 1 season aka season 29 nothing on 30 so i wouldnt say we are on target for season 30

Oh you wouldn't? Well...I did!  :girly

I read some CBS's Facebook page comments and they didn't realize that there was TAR while they even knew other CBS shows. Even Madam Secretary and Survivor.

Also, would move of TAR to ABC be a good idea? I'm not sure.

The odds of a move to ABC are less than a move to the CBS All-Access app online. (And CBS is programming new shows for that platform -- the new Star Trek series and the new spin off from The Good Wife, both to premiere in early 2017.

But I do take the scheduling as an admission that Friday nights with those multi-week pre-emptions in the fall and spring really weren't such a good idea. Any more than all the sports overruns on Sundays. In my mind best bet would be a post-Survivor Wednesday time slot; about the only thing CBS hasn't tried -- but twice -- in the past 15 plus years. And both times, it did help the ratings.

Season 25 was a great season but moving it on Fridays was a really bad move and it snowballed on the succeeding Seasons 26, 27 and 28. Are they trying to kill TAR? Putting TAR on Sundays were great and it delivered. Season 24 was a terrible season in all levels but it still had a decent amount of viewership. Take note TAR is a family show and most families would bond on Sundays at home. CBS, I hope you are reading this, we super TAR fans here are appalled by putting it on Fridays.  Bring it back on Sundays or after Survivor. The next seasons should reach to greater heights again. You'd have to be like TAR 5 or 12 where the viewership was at its highest. I don't want TAR ending up like American Idol. The fact that Season 28 had prominent social media figures with huge fan bases and still did not deliver is questionable and indicates something is wrong.

They really are trying to advertise a lot of the new CBS shows too. I saw a lot of ads for the upcoming new shows in the fall during the Survivor finale

TAR has been all over the days of the week. I am surprised it hasn't moved to Saturday primetime yet. The problem affecting the show now isn't just a one-answer solution. Here's the frankness coming out: The racers have not been as competitive, the editing blatantly favors certain teams, sometimes the progress of other trailing teams skip or jump ahead during tasks (TAR28: firecracker torito, Colombian beach party Detour) or we viewers are unaware of the details of the tasks (just assemble an army knife, umm how?), the constant hours of operations - please stop, and the quality of TAR signage has shown obvious decline (makeshift Speed Bump signs).

I think TAR taking a break from the fall schedule can either prove to be a fantastic choice to improve the overall atmosphere and quality of the show IF production does it right, or falter a lot more if they are like, "Okay, let's take a nice vacation. We deserve it cuz we finished," and keep everything as it is.

My hopes for the airing dates: Early Spring (Late February) 2017, Wednesday after Survivor or whatever investigation drama CBS decides to air, or Sunday if Brain Dead is cancelled. Please be another TAR10-17 era!

In what universe would a show move to Saturday Primetime? :lol:

That's literally the most dead day of the year... no regular shows but sports air then.

What's on before survivor on a Wednesday? Though if it's after survivor that would hopefully give it a big boost!

As per my previous post(s), I prefer the air date for TAR 29 will be winter (first week of January) 2017.

I remember CBS airing the leftover produced episodes of The McCarthys and Bad Teacher on Saturdays after the network said it was cancelled. :lol:

Yeah, probably not my best "in disbelief" statement.

TAR was tried on Saturdays over a decade ago on a cable channel. And then CBS tried airing TAR om Saturdays (TAR 5, IIRC) and changed its Saturday scheduling plans for TAR 6 when Viva Laughin proved to be an unmitigated ratings and creative disaster on Tuesdays.

TAR's original time slot (Wednesdays at 8pm) is now occupied by Survivor. But I wouldn't mind a Survivor-TAR scheduling block on Wednesdays.

One of the scheduling issues that arose with the Friday time slot were the multi-week pre-emptions that were necessary due to sporting and other events. That was also complicated by CBS unexpectedly picking up the new NFL Thursday night package for the first 8 weeks of the NFL season; this season, CBS takes the first eight weeks plus a week in December, and NBC takes the remainder on top of its Sunday night package. That also means CBS has been having to hold shows until the beginning of November.

I would look at the season starting at the same time as the other November series, by then CBS should be able to decide if any of their other series need to be pulled at the end of the CBS share of the Thursday Night Football package.

The show's ratings were falling downwards on Sundays. Why in the world would they put it back in a valuable timeslot? TAR is not as popular as it used to be. This happens to all aging shows.

Season 25 was a great season but moving it on Fridays was a really bad move and it snowballed on the succeeding Seasons 26, 27 and 28. Are they trying to kill TAR? Putting TAR on Sundays were great and it delivered. Season 24 was a terrible season in all levels but it still had a decent amount of viewership. Take note TAR is a family show and most families would bond on Sundays at home. CBS, I hope you are reading this, we super TAR fans here are appalled by putting it on Fridays.  Bring it back on Sundays or after Survivor. The next seasons should reach to greater heights again.

TAR is already dead...it's on life-support at this point :)

TAR29 needs to be a TAR5 or TAR12 x5 otherwise TARUS is dead.
