The Early Show revamped its format sometime ago, and from what I understand, no longer felt that TAR interviews/check presentations fit its new format. I think the loss of Harry and Dave was a big factor, they were big fans. And with Phil currently "not available", that may have influenced the decision to not do the Early Show.

However, Early Show aside, one would think that CBS would make alternate arrangements. Getting the "big" check is part of the fun of winning, and could easily have been done by the local CBS affiliate. Just needs a little organization....

Peach, I'm just hearing that the Early Show is dying a slow death. A possible cancellation in the near future? Wouldn't surprise me at all when you look at all the daytime cancellations.

Did you read their comments on that? Yes, they said it, but in the heat of the moment and they were rather horrified that they did say it.

I am sure we have all said things that we didn't mean, had comments misunderstood or taken the wrong way.

So this, to me, is a blip on the screen compared to a whole race run smartly, with joy, and with positive interactions with the other racers, the people they met along the way, and with each other. A C student comparison is NOTHING to the racist "breeding" comments we had from Kendra.

I think they will represent TAR well, and am proud of them for that difficut final leg!

I agree with you on the C student comparison being better than the racist "breeding" comments Kendra gave.  Both admittedly were dumb, but Kendra's comments were far worse.  So even if you don't like Ernie & Cindy, Dave the 2nd (and you have a right not to like them), you can't say they made a worse comment than Kendra.

I NEVER compared both comments. Just compared both teams, and I'm placing them far far far behind the other winners.

The Early Show is already dead.  CBS is in the midst of gearing up a new morning show under a very old name for CBS -- CBS This Morning, with Erika Hill (the lone carryover and who came from CNN earlier this year), Gayle King (yes, that one) and Charlie Rose. Notice who is not there (Julie).

A "big fan" of the Amazing Race is Julie Chen.  CBS could have put a winners' check presentation on "the Talk."

okay...back to Cindy and Ernie? This would be interesting to continue elsewhere though...

Joab, my understanding is that it hasn't happened. And they're waiting for the real checks to show up in the mail as well.

For the check to show up in the mail? OMG. -.-

That's just so... I don't know... not publicized. The winner should be recognized and awarded their prize in a dignified way... not by mail. :cmas15

What do Freddy and Kendra have to do with anything? We can't dislike Cindy because Kendra is worse? I think Kendra's comment was a blip on the screen too.

^ Prophet, I'm afraid Belle Book could have wanted to quote my post, when I compared ERnie & Cindy with Freddy & Kendra. That may be the doubt?
