hehe Julie said to Phil that "Amazing Race is taking a break for the summer ..." and isn't she married to the head of CBS? Woulnd't she know what the fall schedule looks like? More confirmation for TAR12. WE have nothing to worry about :D

Title: Re: The Future of The Amazing Race & TAR 12
Post by: gingerman28 on May 07, 2007, 10:44:56 AM
On TES both Julie and Phil talked about TAR taking a break this summer.  Phil mentioned that he would be spending the summer travelling around in a small plane.

Does not look good for TAR.

If they postpone TAR12 location shooting until the Fall, that means no air dates before Winter 2008.

Or TAR 12 never sees the light of day.

Gman - I think what they meant is that there will be no season airing over the summer, not that the show will not be filming over the summer. From the looks of it Phil's new show has already filmed (you see clips of him doing the hoola dance), so that leaves plenty of time to film TAR12 during the summer
Title: Re: The Future of The Amazing Race & TAR 12
Post by: Rob on May 07, 2007, 10:58:10 AM
I am not yet believing the "taking the summer off" either, I think this MAY (again, just a guess) be something to throw the spoiler people off track, take them off guard.... I don't know. They don't want us knowing when filming begins/ends, it helped puddin and her team too much for this season, and look at the PERFECT boot list we had.

Is it too late to say that my info about July filming was unconfirmed! LOL I guess I took it as biblical, but maybe it wasn't, its all guessing here!!!
Title: Re: The Future of The Amazing Race & TAR 12
Post by: michael on May 07, 2007, 10:59:43 AM
I'm still guessing they will film in June - July 2007, I think everybody should start bringing a digital camera with them every where they go.

They never come anywhere near the state of Connecticut. If they did, I'd be bringing something... ANYTHING with me whenever I leave the house. Notepad with a writing utensil, camera; the possibilities are endless.

CBS needs to search for some new starting locations. The Northeast is a beautiful location, and there are some wonderful places for Phil to do his trademark eyebrow raise. ;)

They could start off the race in Boston.  Although, I wouldn't call that city 'lovely'.

I doubt it will air in August. There's no way they would put it on in the middle of summer, my guess is the usual end of September start time.

Natives of New England such as me take offense at such rubbish. Of course Boston is a lovely city. It wouldn't have over 100,000 college students if if weren't the greatest place to go to a university or college (I can say this with authority having done so myself). The Boston Common, the Charles River, Beacon Hill and Boston Harbor are all beautiful. When was the last time you went to a Boston Pops concert on the Esplanade (I am not admitting the year when I last did this)? The suburbs outside of Route 128 are beautiful as well as many inside of that loop. Boston would be an excellent place to start an Amazing Race.
Title: Re: The Future of The Amazing Race & TAR 12
Post by: TheCinera on May 07, 2007, 01:37:46 PM
I'm a native of New England too...it's just that I find Boston to be less attractive than places like Chicago, or San Francisco.  I could see them starting it off in Boston, but I was having trouble figuring out a great place for the Race to launch.

And I have been to the Esplande for the Boston Pops Fourth of July concert.  I believe it was in 2004 or 2005 when I went. 
Title: Re: The Future of The Amazing Race & TAR 12
Post by: Kogs on May 07, 2007, 01:48:33 PM
i think we may get a midwestern start city this time. seeing how since the show went to a 2 season format back in tar 6 we have had (season8 doesnt count in this)

season6 start-chicago(midwest) end-chicago(midwest)
season7 start-Longbeach(westcoast) end-miami(east coast)
season9 start-Denver(close to westcoast) end-Denver(close to westcoast)
season10 start Seattle(westcoast) end-NYC(eastcoast)
season11 start Miami(eastcoast) end-SF(Westcoast)

I wanna ask now. This is my first season here at the forum. Do you guys usually get the elimination order of the teams? Im wondering because you dont know who to look for. I was trying to find the teams out early for all stars and spoilded the season for me. So if you do tell me so I can stay clear of them. Thanks

Usually we don't know the order like we did this season. We usually can only determine who make it to the end by sightings, but never really know the winners. I think the boot list DID take some of the fun out of the season, but it also allowed some of us to hope against hope that our teams will pull through in the end..

Ok thanks this season was no fun knowing the order. Even knowing who makes it to the end by sightings ruins it because you can get a picture of how far they make it. This season I think I will stay clear of spoilers... bye!  :waves:

Puddin, thanks for your bootlist this season. If I haven't read that list, I think I would be so sad and could not sleep last night knowing that D/K didn't win, this is like seeing Kris/Jon losing to Freddy/Kendra in TAR6 to me... :'( But now I don't feel so sad about it, so I think if my favourite team didn't win it's better to know the outcome sooner before the finale and have some time to get over it.  :jam:

I think it was gman

but next time if there is a list it wont be as crushing as as this one hopefully, since I wont have a pre-determined favorite.

That really sounds like Phil is going to be filming NOW around the world between June 1 and September 30, 2007.

Does that mean that TAR 12 is "on hold" until perhaps this fall which means no air dates until February again?

Or will NOW have a different host?

Or is TAR "on hiatus" as they say in television land, which means bye-bye?

From somebody who met Phil last night in Montreal:

Quote
I met Phil last night in Montreal for his book tour (pictures of that later along with all Tarcon events) and he said "unofficially" it's a go, though no start date for filming as of yet. However he is NOT hosting the Canadian version of NOW.

I doubt he would say the start date even if it HAS been set so i wouldn't take the no start date for filming as a fact.
Title: Re: The Future of The Amazing Race & TAR 12
Post by: Kogs on May 10, 2007, 09:50:34 AM
ok so hes not hosting the canadian now, that prob means somewhere in july-august range for tar filming most likely.  phil is doing all this traveling and stuff so thats why im throwing june out. but ill keep searching film permits sites and try to find it again like last time lol

OK, listen to Zachs take on the finale, at the end the interviewer says "On to race twelve, rumour has it that again it's not new faces, but familiar ones, if that's true are producers messing with the formula a little to much"

and then Zach mentions something celebrities or something to run the race  (:;) What the hell!

What does an Amazing Race fan do for the next 4 months? It has been suggested by one individual that watching Mark Burnett's Pirate Master is the thing to do, but I think not. I just discovered by chance a small gem that I can recommend for all RFF members to try out. It is Fox Reality's

CHASING TIME, which is a contest of one team from a foreign country completing a series of 8 tasks (mostly puzzles in the spirit of Amazing Race 1) in 12 hours. If they fail, they get sent home that evening. If they succeed, they get a luxury hotel suite for the evening. The prize isn't big enough to be the reason people do this, it's all about the spirit of competition. I just watched 2 Irish twenty-somethings take on Manhattan. Manhattan won, but it was fun watching them go for it.

So, thanks to GSN, I tape TAR that they replay every night from 2a-3am. Right now I'm on Season 3. Man, Ian really was terrible, he was a lot better in All Stars. And, I must say, I really like John Vito and Jill.  ;D

I get Fox Reality.  When is Chasing Time on?

I saw it from 230pm to 3pm this afternoon. It is probably also on other times, so check the FOX REALITY timetable.

From a poster at sucks:
Phil said moments ago on canadian tv (CBC's The Hour) that they are about to film the twelve season.

funny thing is my mom just came in my room and told me she saw something about Phil on TV a while ago, so maybe it was the same thing!

edit:

here is the video:

Kogs, I was wondering what you do to search for filming permits, maybe I can help?
Did you find the TAR10 film permit before the race started?!

BIG PAPI, I note that your tag line says "Latitude erupted in CHEERS when ERIC and DANI Girl won". I know you showed up later at Stitch, but the instantaneous reaction to the win at TARCON XI was not exactly positive. Most people including me were wearing Dustin and Kandice buttons and most people not including me erupted into a load groan when Eric and Danielle crossed the finish line.

And, these last two are shows that are unlikely to be cancelled, but their ratings declines need to be considered. Survivor and The Amazing Race each represent a legacy of reality television which is now over seven years old, and each show also represents a legacy which is slowly deteriorating. Both shows continue to be successful in key demos and total viewers, and both will be on the schedule next year, but there is a rumour that each might be seeing themselves pared back. The Amazing Race may be taking a break until February, and there are rumours it could end up in Survivor’s timeslot as it also starts to become a once-a-year phenomenon. Either way, both shows no longer feel like “event programming”, which is what made reality TV the success it is. CBS now needs to decide whether or not they can regain that with a scheduling shift.

This fits in very well with the sense of the show's future that I got from totally unofficially talking with the racers last weekend.

Everyone thought there would be another season.

One racer said she had been asked for a casting recommendation, which she didn't believe would have happened without a commitment to another show.

But everyone did seem to think that we would see a delay in the next show--maybe airing late fall? Or even filming late fall? Which seemed to go agaiinst Phil's comment of being "MEANT" to film this summer.

And I heard from several racers that going down to a once a year event would not be a surprise.

I did not hear anything about celebrities at all. And why would you want a casting rec if you had celebrity teams lined up?

Do I have my head in the sand? Or could this be a smokescreen?
Title: Re: The Future of The Amazing Race & TAR 12
Post by: michael on May 12, 2007, 05:17:24 PM
Well, a lot of people might think this just because of the ratings, but I can see CBS still staying with twice a year format.  Everything we've heard from Phil so far makes it seem as though the filming is about to begin, so I think we should all wait until next week before we start to give up hope :(

I dont know why they would ever wait until Feb?  Now that does say it will take Survivor's time slot [again thats not good].  But it go great success Sundays after football!  I mean if your going to do it once a year keep it where it is good!  However i will admit i loved it when it was on during the summer!  Once a year shows should be only in the Summer!

So it has been mentioned over and over, most notably by the BQ fans  :badhorse:. What is the point of rehashing this? To make Big Papi and his family as well as Danielle's family feel that their loved ones were not deserving of the million dollar prize? If this hurts me I can only imagine how Big Papi must feel.
So would one of you please explain to me exactly what the point is because really, to me, it sounds like bitter grapes. Does it makes the BQ fans feel better to berate Eric & Danielle??.. then with that I echo Eric “For the People That Don't Like Us, I'm Glad We Ruined Your Season” !!

Being the biggest BQ fan I can safely say NO, not for me anyways. E/D won fair and square and over came so many things and I think it's stupid to "boo" a team when they aren't around, yet by the looks of it the second they showed up it was all smiles and autographs. Of course I can't speak for all of us. 

When I posted that video of the reaction at TARcon I honestly didn't mean to send off the message that I realized afterwards that it looked like I was trying to do! I was just saying how immature it was for the people to boo, and it annoys me that it seemed like afterwards everybody wanted their photo taken with the winning team.

ive been saying this for a couple weeks now here and i still feel the same way tar12 will come on when one of the pilots flop. there shows that always flop, so i aint worried. so im thinking november because one of these pilots will have a short leash when ratings stink. look what happended to clubhouse when ratings floped back in 04. TAR WAS there ready for a premiere in november sweeps. i think febuary is a bad time for tv because come april and may ratings decline on all shows. tv watching is down as a whole. so i certainly aint worried about when we will get it. we may even get better legs if we get a november-febuary race if its only1 time a year now, and remeber they greenlite tar7 on the fly iirc, i think puddin can refresh my memory on that. so lets not worry about when it will be on and if we have to wait abit to make the quality better, they ill wait!!!!!

michael im looking at all these rumors right now as smoke screans. does cbs want the show spoiled more than it has been????? none of this make scense, if tar is delayed i take it because cbs wants to build up hype. they screwed up tar10 hype, i just think there is more to this than any1 is letting on. be paitent GOOD this will come out of this. and truth of the matter id rather have tar out of the baseball playoffs slote in october and also going up vs football. it held its own once but who saids it can hold it again. maybe moving it back to tuesday nights perhaps see'ing how thats where it got its best raitings so instead there waiting on the pilots to flop???

I think kogs is on to something. Most of the racers I asked about another season kept saying, there will be one--it just might be later and/or not as often.

And didn't we really hear "familiar faces" not "celebrity edition"? ( :lol: It is so hard to track down the start of rumours!)

Some familiar faces I could get behind: Racers out 4th (yay Bowling Moms!), or racers out first even. We've had Survivor and even BB rcers on before and survived.

It just saddens me because I think what we need most right now is an excellent cast of ordinary teams (no gimicks/mactors/celebs) and fabulous tasks and locations to get TAR back on track again. Throw in a few more non-spoon fed challenges ("Get yourself to the Thundering Water") and we'd have another winner.

I know! I remember making a post on sucks back in Feb that I really miss the "new team feeling" and I hate to say it but I really didn't like the TAR11 course. My all time favorite course would have to be TAR1, TAR6, TAR9, and TAR10.

I'm really hoping for a September/October/November start. Maybe it will be like TAR6, where it starts in November - and TAR13 (if there is one) starts in March.

So let's not get too carried away till we hear what they say on Wed.

Well if we get a green light as expected on Wed then it would HAVE to start no later than next Feb in order to make May sweeps.

But I'm still hoping for a fall start--maybe Nov carrying over to Feb sweeps. Have we ever had a TAR that ran through the holiday seasons?

Of course I'd like 3 a year so I'm not the one to ask!

Well maybe that's what they are planning--something later in the season?

How do upfronts work exactly? How much will we find out? How much do they tell us?

Is it "TAR renewed"--period.

Or "TAR renewed with plans for a start date in Nov and a truly awful and annoying cast"?

Last time I just remember we heard renewed....

Kogs - I wouldn't mind a November start, I agree, that might actually help the ratings, just as long as it isn't a Feb start.

i dont like spring tv, if you look at the ratings for all tv shows there down from last year. the ny post had something about it on friday.  im using my own spec but also why im thinking november besides there 2 pilots i think that can crash very easly, the one thats rumored to be going on sunday's in tars place and this one on tuesday especally if the unit is cancelled or gets a limited run.

And the good thing is, TAR has had low points in ratings before, so maybe putting it on later in the year (November) will increase the ratings and we will get more years of TAR to enjoy  :jumpy:

kogs probably knows more but it is a threatened writers strike --so shows that don't rely on writers --like TAR--could suddenly be very very valuable to the lineup.

wonder why so many pilots are going to production right now, because of the threat of the writiers strike, it gives them programming for a bit before they have togoto reality shows. theres alot going on than made in the media. cbs has something like 5 gameshows/reality shows taping pilots right now, with one hosted by tucker carlson of msnbc fwiw, ill try and find the link again.

Producers Prepare for Possible Strike
Could More Games Be on the Way? Posted 4/24/07


From Calendar Live: Anticipating a possible walkout, networks and studio executives are starting to take steps to keep production pipelines flowing. The contingency plans include pushing up shooting schedules, ordering more reality TV programs and renegotiating with writers to turn in their film scripts earlier than usual.

"They're protecting their long-range business interests," said chief studio negotiator J. Nicholas Counter, president of the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers.

The early preparations come three months before what are expected to be highly contentious contract talks between producers and writers, with the central issue being how writers are paid when their work is shown over the Internet.

Guild leaders have alleged that studios are trying to scare writers by suggesting they are stockpiling scripts and shows. There has been little evidence of a large-scale stockpiling like there was in 2001, when fear of strikes by actors and writers caused a major acceleration of production.

"We've never seen stockpiling to be a significant negotiating strategy," said Chuck Slocum, assistant executive director of the Writers Guild of America, West. "We don't see any reason a deal cannot be reached and we look forward to negotiating to that end."

Rival networks and studio executives have been keeping their contingency plans under wraps not only from writers but also one another.

Although none would publicly discuss their plans, several Hollywood executives privately acknowledged that they were preparing for what could be the first writers' strike since 1988.

Their plans include having some shows come back early to shoot additional episodes that could air during a strike and pushing up production schedules of midseason shows to as early as July instead of their usual September start.

Networks typically decide which shows they're going to pick up just before the key advertising sales period in May and June. But this year has seen an unusually large number of early pickups, evidence not only of changes in the television industry but also strike preparations, analysts say.

"There are clear signs that networks are preparing their fall schedules as early as possible as a hedge against a possible strike," said Carolyn Finger, vice president of TVtracker.com, an Internet-based research and consulting service.

Network business affairs executives are combing their libraries to identify which shows they have the rights to rebroadcast and to compile alternative schedules jammed with movies, news programs, reality fare and game shows.

Hit shows such as Fox's "American Idol" are not only hugely popular, but they are also cheaper to produce than scripted programs. And most reality shows aren't covered under the Writers Guild contracts despite efforts by the union to organize the booming sector.

This season saw 56 unscripted series across all the broadcast networks, up from 51 last year, according to TVtracker.com. CBS has five game show pilots in production, including shows hosted by comedian Drew Carey and MSNBC talk show host Tucker Carlson.

"The ramped-up reality slate is part of our regular program development for summer, fall and midseason programming, but these projects could be utilized if a strike does occur," CBS spokesman Chris Ender said

well heres the thing, the wga contract expires oct 31. negotiations begin in july, the wga aint going to budge over there demands. should be a fun summer :lol: . reality shows maybe delayed because of this especally if they run out of fresh shows. thats one of the reasons we are most likely looking at a late run for tar.

Better than 9, a wee bit worse than 10.  What is key is although it pulls is the least amount of viewers to CBS on Sundays, the 18-49 demo spikes up once 60 minutes is over and Cold Case either maintains it or inches it up a bit more.

very cute, also i think we shouldnt panic if tar is held off because that means its likely to come faster than an announced season say febuary, one of cbs pilots will flop, they always do. now for the rumors hell anything can happen, so if its celebs i just hope its good tv, thats all i ask. if its new people the talk of celebs and keeping newbies out of the limelight is a great idea!!!

michael, relax
here are the pilots that cbs picked up
Quote
CBS has picked up drama pilots "Cane," "Moonlight," "Viva Laughlin" and "Swingtown," comedy pilot "The Big Bang Theory" and alternative pilot "Power of 10" to series.

"Cane" (formerly untitled Cynthia Cidre) hails from CBS Paramount Network TV and ABC Studios and stars Jimmy Smits as the head of a Latin American family.

"Moonlight" (formerly "Twilight") from Warner Bros. TV, stars Alex O'Loughlin as a private investigator who is a vampire.

"Laughlin," from Sony Pictures TV, BBC Worldwide Prods. and CBS Paramount Network TV, stars Lloyd Owen as a family man who dreams of opening a casino in Laughlin, NV.

"Swingtown," from CBS Par TV, is a couple-swinging drama set in the 1970s.

"Big Bang," from WBTV, stars Johnny Galecki and Jim Parsons as science geeks who befriend a party girl. 

"Power of 10," from Sony Pictures TV and Michael Davies, features contestants competing to predict the results of nationwide surveys.

Ill bet you tar will be on come november replacing Moonlight. that show sounds like the most in trouble just looking at the description

Same old, but posted for the hell of it!

CBS Fall Preview
CBS’s new Fall Schedule is to be announced Wednesday, May 16th at 2:00 EST. CBS faces the same problem each year as they try to engage younger viewers to their shows, while in reality, continuing their same streak of repetitive programming. Case in point: how many CBS shows are you actually watching?

What do we not need to worry about?
Survivor (can you believe this is the only show CBS has officially renewed for next season?)

What shows are looking good for renewal, but no official announcement has been made?
Rules of Engagement (it had a good run as a midseason replacement), CSI, CSI: Miami, CSI: NY (although it’s the most vulnerable), Criminal Minds, NCIS, The Unit, Without a Trace, Cold Case, Ghost Whisperer, Numb3rs, Two and a Half Men, 60 Minutes

What shows are riding that bubble?
Shark (with rumors buzzing of a move to Friday), The New Adventures of Old Christine (with a possible less than full-season), How I Met Your Mother (rumored to be picked up for a full season), Close to Home, The Amazing Race


What should we prepare to say an “official” goodbye to?
The Class, Jericho

What shows did they already can?
King of Queens (series finale tonight), Smith, 3 Lbs.

What new shows are likely to be picked for next season?
The Hollywood Reported announced today that CBS has picked up four drama pilots "Cane” (with Jimmy Smits), "Moonlight," "Viva Laughlin" and "Swingtown," and one comedy pilot "The Big Bang Theory" (as well as an alternative pilot "Power of 10", a game show from "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" maven Michael Davies). The dramas "Babylon Fields" and "The Man" (with LL Cool J) are also said to be in contention at CBS as well, however face a lesser chance now.

CBS was also expected to consider at least two more half-hours: "The Captain" (which features Jeffrey Tambor and Raquel Welch in its
supporting cast) and "I'm in Hell." A lot of trade reports were indicating good buzz for "Fugly".

Yeah, Frankly I have mentioned in the non spoiler thread, that TAR may not be a Fall starter, but that its Demo numbers (the 2cd best of CBS Sunday Night), should have the show on its schedule.

Now there has been talk (over the ast two years) about downgrading the series to one cycle a year (ideally switched out with Survivor) as a means to ensure that he show doesn't burn out.

And without a writers strike possability I wouldn't be surprised at all if that happened this year.

But the last major strike I remember was in 1989, that severly hampered the season.  And all the networks did over time in getting some extra forms of non scripted shows out there (at that time it meant a lot of news shows and game shows).  There was also another one in a more recent time (that didn't hit the industry as hard, but they still made sure to greenlight more non scripted hours (and this time it did heavily include reality programming.

So I would expect them to greenlight the series, and give it a tentative spot (and I could easily see it being November-February).  But that tentative spot could easily be switched up if a strike does happen or if shows tank.

If that occurs then I would expect a rushed 2cd cycle in this same season.

And damn its good to be back.

OH and here's this mention of AR on Forbes concerning the revenue the shows generate due to advertsising.

Amazing Race 10
CBS
Revenue per episode: $3.02 million
Average cost of a 30-sec ad: $144,000
Viewers: 11.5 million
This reality stalwart generates little buzz, but it's been a consistent moneymaker for CBS.

It ranked around 25th.  THough those figures are estimates and can vary if a show doesn't meet the goal set out by the studio.  And can force the studio to grant free airtime to make up that difference.

negotiations begin in july with contract expiring on oct31 with the wga. i expect tar12 to be in the can while waiting on a bad pilot to flop in ratings. personally id put money on moonlighting or whatever its called with a tar premair in november. if the strike goes into january i expect tar13 to be shot in january to have it on hold in case they need more programming. worse come to worse we have a summer edition of tar.

I have something that's been nagging me since Tarcon.

I KNOW I read a message from someone that went to Tarcon.  I'm thinking the message was just 1 line but I don't remember how it was worded.  Since seeing the message I haven't been able to find it again.  I've even tried to search with no luck.

I'm pretty sure it had to do with TAR12.  The message was something about Atlanta airport in (I think) July.  I have a very, very small thinking that it may have been August but I don't think so.

If someone did post this and deleted for some reason or the Admin deleted for whatever reason could I be PM'd just so I know I'm not loosing my mind.

I either read it just before going to work (night shift) or just after getting off work.

G-man,

Thank you so much for the link.  That's the message I was trying to find.  Why I was thinking July I don't know.  I know now I was wrong.  Also, the Search (regular & advanced) doesn't seem to work right.  I've searched: airport, Atlanta, Atlanta airport, Keep an eye on, etc and didn't find the message.

You guys (& galls) are all great.  For some reason that message stuck with me and then when I couldn't find it to reread it I got frustrated.

This is my 1st season for TAR spoilers and I'm soooooooooooo glad I found you guys.

the open slots would then be tuesday at 9,wed at 8,thursday at 10, friday at 9 i think this would leave tar its spot on the schedule. shark is moving to tuesdays at 10

hmm....looks like we may get a September start after all? the Race 11 post producer is in the same time period (almost) as the air date! I'm still thinking they might stick with their Sunday line up like that article somebody posted above said.

tsk tsk...this site completley ignored Amazing Race:

this is from the usa today i love how the guy contridics him self. so we know theres 4 pickups by cbs with 3 known times open.

he talks normally about 3 of the 4 and when it comes to the 4th swingtown, the one people put on sunday nights this is what he saids
Quote
•And Swingtown, a 1970s period soap about suburban Chicago wife swappers, more likely for midseason.

then he saids this

Quote
And CBS ordered game show Power of 10, hosted by Drew Carey. It's a new take on Family Feud (minus the family), in which contestants guess what public surveys say for a chance to win up to $10 million. Survivor is a lock, and The Amazing Race also is expected to return with just one midseason cycle.
please gary levin make up your mind

Project was originally pegged for a summer debut but was held for the 2007-08 season after CBS execs became excited about its breakout potential. Eye's other reality staples -- "Survivor" and "Amazing Race" -- have been greenlit for two cycles and one cycle, respectively.

i suspect we will have 2 cycles, i just think the tv season is week like 2004-2005. cbs is covering them selfs with diff types of shows i just think that creative minds need todo a better job on finding new shows. moonlight looks horrible, and so does swingtown

 :wohoo:

"The Amazing Race" has been renewed for a 12th run!

From Variety:
On Sundays, "The Amazing Race" has been greenlit for another cycle, but it's not clear if it will be back for fall or midseason. Eye has other reality prospects in the hopper that could work in this timeslot, or "Viva Laughlin" could always end up Sundays at 8 as well -- potentially pushing a reality show to Wednesdays at 8.

http://www.variety.com/article/VR1117965013.html?categoryid=14&cs=1

I'm thinking TAR12 in fall (or November) - and depending on how many shows flop/ratings, TAR13 at the beginning of March!

heres the thing does cbs want to mess with success and launch a new show in septemeber and keep tar on the backburner to see how that goes, or keep it how it is and pray these new series suck lol. i think one way or another we are getting 2 cycles of tar. also if theres 1 cycle of tar the buget maybe bigger for a better season too

Is it halfway between Sept and May? Which is late Jan?

Or is it mid FALL season?

when a show is scheduled for midseason its usually january.febuary time, but when the term bench is used it usually means for the first "injured" show. now we have a few choices here. the kids reality show on wed nighs, and the vampire show on friday nights. if the kids reality show gets cancelled would they put tar back on wed at 8??? move it back to sunday att 8 or do some schedule shifting?

Quote
The Amazing Race is officially off the fall schedule, as it will be held over until the new year and only air a single season this year. This is unsurprising, but troubling; I worry that if ratings are low for this one season they’ll pull the plug. I think that the show has plenty of gas left, but a lot of miles on the car. They can keep driving, they just need to slow down a little and everything will be okay. It’s like Speed. (Note: Everything can be like Speed. True Story). It will be indirectly replaced by a new reality show, Kid Nation, a new Lord of the Flies-esque story of kids taking over a ghost town revealed today (Variety). It will be airing on Wednesdays at 8pm
I'm not sure what "indirectly replaced" means.

Sounds to me that they are investing a lot of hope in this so doubt this will be something that gets pulled mid-season.

But hey team--WE STILL HAVE OUR SHOW! But omg--8 months? Some of us could produce an early baby in 8 months! That is a reaaallly long time to wait. I like kogs' idea about Nov better.

yeah I'm looking forward to it!

I'll keep hoping for an earlier cycle....

I kind of wish we would get one cycle in september - feb, and another in June-August (a summer season would be so awesome!)

one thing is i think if its being held on the bench waiting for the first burn it has to say that they feel good about it despite the order for 1 cycle

Midseason replacement - 
A midseason replacement is a television show that premieres in the second half of a television season usually between January and April.
Midseason replacements usually take place after a show that was in the fall schedule was canceled or put on hiatus.
Some midseason replacements get canceled like the shows they replaced, but others have gone on to be very successful.

From the CBS press release:

Quote
"VIVA LAUGHLIN," Where Drama is Accented by Iconic Music

THAT'S the selling point? Iconic music? Dead by Halloween.

Quote
THE BIG BANG THEORY is a comedy . . . Neither fully understands that scientific principles don't always apply in matters of the heart — until they meet their ***y new neighbor Penny (Kaley Cuoco, "8 Simple Rules…"), a friendly screenwriter/waitress from the midwest who also happens to be newly single. 


"Big Bang"? Really? What, they eventually hook up for . . . an orgy? After buying the requisite [Seinfeld voice] robes, oils, and lotions?

Yeah, I'm not worried about a slot opening up for TAR. And I would actually prefer one well-designed and well-cast race to two crappy ones. Then again, two crappy ones is better than one crappy one. CBS is probably waiting to see if TAR wins another emmy.

Can we do anything about it?? Or are we on the hands of CBS?? It is not fair, for such a good and entertaing show being put on hold for so long.

Will have to wait (and pray) and see if they come to their senses.

Nobody wanted to believe me when I said not before February at the earliest.

Mid-season replacement is a kiss of death.

So unless the ratings do a magnum leap, this will be the end of TAR.  Even "Deal or No Deal" greatly surpases TAR in the ratings (which all goes to show the mindset of most of the TV audience today)

I think that this puts a lot of weight on the next season to be strong. If like kogs says, the casting is good and the locations are well chosen, then I expect that all will be well. But if they do something utterly stupid like a celebrity edition, then I can hear the death knells now.

Remember folks, the Amazing Race has been on life support before and has come back strong.

I'm actually not that disappointed.  As much as I love both shows, I feel that The Amazing Race and Survivor should have just one season per year.  Too many seasons dilutes the experience.

CBS is strongly committed to reality shows, and they've got a good team working on new shows.  They have big hopes for Pirate Master and Kid Nation.  Delaying TAR gives these shows a little breathing room, especially since Survivor will be airing while Kid Nation is.

So my hope is that they have four real good reality shows, with each show airing once per year.  Survivor, The Amazing Race and two other shows.  I don't have high hopes for Kid Nation or Pirate Master, but we shall see.

They key to reality television is that you have to sympathize with the cast members.  Too many gimmicks kills the show.  That's why I'm not terribly hopeful for Pirate Master.  (Remember Treasure Hunters?)  Kid Nation has a better chance in this regard.

RTVW  (http://www.realitytvworld.com/news/cbs-delays-next-the-amazing-race-edition-until-midseason-5183.php) has a write up.

As is typical for midseason series, CBS has not announced when The Amazing Race 12 will premiere, however The Amazing Race's twelfth season is likey to debut once Kid Nation or one of the network's three other new one-hour fall series -- Viva Laughlin, mystery drama that incorporates Broadway musical-like singing performances; Cane, an "epic drama" about a Cuban-American family that runs an immensely successful run and sugar business in South Florida; and Moonlight, a romantic thriller about a vampire who works as a private investigator -- end their runs, go on hiatus, or get pulled due to poor ratings.

ok this scares me- http://www.realityblurred.com/realitytv/archives/the_amazing_race_12/2007_May_16_renewed

CBS has officially renewed The Amazing Race, but only for one more season, which will not air until midseason.
That’s a change from the show’s fairly regular pattern of airing two seasons a year, which has happened consistently since the show’s beginning, with the exception of the year-long gap between seasons four and five, which was followed by three seasons airing over one year.

Does that mean 1 season and its done or its only been picked up for 1 more season as or right now?

I wouldn't trust that article very much, because they always renew TAR one season at a time, and while it WAS picked up for midseason, I'm guessing it will air as soon as one of the new shows gets canceled... I think TAR6 was picked up for midseason as well and ended up airing in November

The TV editor of the Newark Star-Ledger interprets the information he received from CBS as "Amazing Race will be returning mid-season on Saturday night."

If this is true, it is indeed "the kiss of death"!  Nothing lasts for long on Saturday night.

But lets face it,  "hit" reality shows are  nearing the end of their  run. It is a trueism of television land that all good things must come to an end. Even "Gunsmoke" bit the bullet after 22 years!

Survivor had its lowest ratings for a final show in its history; down some 6 million.  Partly due, I think, to the fact that only  minority members made up the final five.  It may be PC, but the majority of viewers do not watch shows made for the minority.

TAR also ran into a shrinking audience.  Partly due to the familiarity of the players, partly due to the familiarity with the tasks, partly due to the familarity of the locales, and partly due to the fact that audiences are getting more and more disillusioned with the contrived nature of the so-called "race".  Too many times the race is brought to a screaming halt so that everyone can once again be on a even playing field.  That's what happened to your girls, Michael.  They had a great lead over the field in Poland, (or wherever) but it was wiped out the very next leg.  That's causing a lot of people to lose interest.

Sorry to see it happen.  But if TPTB do not shape up quickly, TAR will hit the road as will Survivor, Deal or No Deal, Dancing with the Stars, 1 vs 100, just as Who Wants to be a Millionaire did before them.  The only show that seems to build year after year is American Idol, and that, too, will fade away in time.

But enough said, I know I sound like a pessimist, but I've worked and lived through almost 60 years of television history since 1948 and trends start, swell, and then like old generals, just fade away.

So no more worries about TAR or anything else on televison (and that includes BB, Puddin) as I leave tomorrow for a month's trip through Eastern Europe.  But mind you, I will have my camera at the ready just in case I run into a yellow and red bannaer somewhere.  

Ciao, everyone.

It will be introduced as part of February "Sweeps" month(the others are May and November). To film this summer would be foolish as it would allow too much time for the racers to make giveaway statements various places on the Internet.

And so it starts....

We know that TAR Asia is not on right now, and we are pretty much  certain due to Phil's schedule that TAR 12 is not on either. Is there a local NZ race?

The Amazing Race around NZ, again
May 21st, 2007 · 1 Comment
The latest series of The Amazing Race (TAR) is being run right now.

 On Saturday, golfers (including Lita’s Daddy) at Kaikohe Golf Club in Northland were pushed off the greens while Amazing Racers were filmed trying to sink a ball in the 10th hole before moving on to the next challenge.

Jeesh, those crazy cats in TAR production sure come up with some radical, scary challenges, don’t they?

If you ask Lita’s Mum, the real challenge of Kaikohe is attempting a left turn out of the Shell Petrol Station on Broadway without a ding or a road rage incident.

Eastern Bay's Amazing Race
21 May 2007

Youth Week in the Eastern Bay will be marked by Ngati Awa Social and Health services with a business challenge.

The event runs along similar lines to the TV show The Amazing Race.

Youth and Whanau Coordinator Lynne Cooper says the three hour event will pit four member teams against each other in physical and intellectual scenarios.

She says the various challenges should test leadership skills and build confidence and self esteem.

Youth week begins today.

A couple of people running with a camera behind them….it very well could have been a local TAR. But I’m hoping not.

--you're a watcher--can you describe EXACTLY what you saw? Pictures? Any identifying marks on the bags? More info please!

I think some local TAR events are taped--for instance the Rai$ing Race in SC is filmed by the local film school and then entrants can buy a DVD. Guess maybe I'll see if I can reach the local group by email somehow--let me know if anyone sees an address!

ok so i got off the plane and i wass obvioussly on the international side since i went to italy. And waiting in the airport at the gate were like about 8 people. And where u check into the gate there was a sounds person and a camera person and they had forms with them and they had people signing. Around the people was another s/c person. All the people had backpacks like people on tar. It was gate 756. I just called the airport and gate 756 goes to aruba. The team or w/e were looking at some paper, maby a clue? I couldnt get a good look since i was being rushed by my teacher.  Umm 2 people had matching shirts. hmmm maby the other s/c people were allready on the plane. Thats pretty much it. If i remeber anything else il post it. My friend took a picture so i will try and get it from him.

Was the gate where you saw them to your left or your right as you exited the plane? Was it right next door to your gate or on your way towards baggage claim? I'm looking for a map or Terminal 9 to show you...

Michael--Phil's big project right now is his NOW television thing in Canada. Auditions were ongoing the last few weeks and it is my understanding that filming was scheduled to be between  June 1 and 9/30--that's why we never thought TAR could/would film till later. Also there are Oprah committments for their show too.
Title: Re: The Future of The Amazing Race & TAR 12
Post by: joemike on May 21, 2007, 04:34:15 PM
ok it was towards the baggage claim more and i no how to post a picture. Also i was thinking could it be posible to a jet blue plane to leave out of an AA terminal. Because flight 756 to aruba is jet blue. And jet blue does not have there act together. When i flew them last year we were at the jet blue terminal and there was  traffic or something and we left out of a different terminal. Idk just a thought. Because if thats the case it was would make sense flight 756 to aruba leaving out of AA terminal

Peach, on CBC's the hour Phil confirmed that although it's his show he is not the host so he wouldn't really need to film anything? I guess the only way we can judge is once we see that photo

That's what she said! Oh no! If that is the case then they probably wont be filming TAR12 until September then! Which means that regardless if we a show gets cancelled we wont see any TAR until Feb for sure! :( None of this fits in with Phil's "about to begin the 12th race" when he was on The Hour!

Unless - they film TAR12 now - middle of June, and that will mean that filming will be done before the summer months begin!  ???

EAST BAY, New Zealand

I have researched this question and have only found a reference to Arapawa Island. This is off Marlborough Sound and the Queen Charlotte Strait on the ferry approach into Picton, the ferry terminal on the South Island. East Bay is apparently on teh east side of Arapawa Island.

However, I am suspicious of this and believe that there may be another East Bay on the North Island. I have sent a request to my family new Zealand expert, my sister, a resident of Auckland. We should have an answer in 24 hours.

I think eastern bay is in Northland in the North Island. That also fits with the TV station I was talking to...

PEACH, I don't find either map helpful inlocating East Bay. My sister thinks that East bay might be starting north of Auckland about 25 miles and continuing to "Castor Bay, Mairangi Bay, Torbay and Long Bay." My old World Atlas, which I just looked at, settles the question and indicates that she is right. There is a town marked "East Coast Bays" north of Auckland above Takapuna. I have a .kmz file of its position but I can't find My Places in my PC to access it from.

On the burning question of the day, where did the possible racers go from JFK on American Airlines between 1430 and 1500 Sunday afternoon, I have the 4 possible answers out of 56 possible destinations from JFK:

1430 AA4618 to Boston
1435 AA117   to Los Angeles
1450 AA4133 to Chicago
1450 AA4765 to Washington DC

There were NO international flights whatsoever between 1400 and 1500 scheduled out of JFK on American Airlines. It does not look like AR12 to me, but you can draw your own conclusions.

I agree that this is very doubtful. But if it was, it probably was later as they were still at the gate at 2:45 when joemike saw them--so maybe even up to 4 to 5? I found one flight out to Miami which would allow for all sorts of Caribbean or South American connections.

I’ve still to get it confirmed (Phil’s phone must be out of range), but I can confirm many googlers have searched for ‘kaikohe’ or ‘nz amazing race’ and gotten to BOTS. So, other kiwis have seen this phenomenon, and thought they are TAR folk too.

Right now I'm leaning towards both of these being nothing, but obviously they can't both be right.

Just for you, PEACH, I have done the following:

AMERICAN AIRLINES FLIGHTS BETWEEN 1500 and 1700 OUT OF JFK

International
1540 AA585  San Juan
1545 AA4752 Montreal
1545 CX831(code-share with AA?) Hong Kong
1620 AA1444 Bermuda
1620 AA 975  Caracas

Domestic
1515 AA 4723 Raleigh-Durham
1530 AA3944 Baltimore-Washington
1535 AA85    San Francisco
1540 AA585   Miami
1600 AA131  Los Angeles
1605 AA4731 St. Louis/Springfield MO
1610 AA1755 Washington DCA
1625 AA4668 Boston
1700 AA181 Los Angeles

It should be noted that many of the international destinations as well as Miami and Los Angeles are hubs in their own right and could have connections to many other cities, so there could be a much broader range of destinations for anyone on these flights or the 1430 to 1500 flights.

Thanks Michael for the link--I saw Phil this AM (could have used a little more Phil Hula IMO!)  :flirt:

We all knew yesterday that this was highly unlikely to be a TAR team event. But you know what? It doesn't matter! It was fun, it livened up a dull day around here, and it was good spoiling practice for that day when someone says "I just saw some teams in the Timbuckto airport". So let's just enjoy it for what it was! And keep those eyes peeled for the next airport sighting....

Don't worry joemike--the forum was down for all of us last night. Thanks for updating us!

What do you want to bet he's still involved though? This is his baby...

He will be for sure as he is the executive producer...just not on screen.  The application said that you have to be ready to be gone up to 7 days during the summer months if you're chosen once your schedule is cleared.

That's what she said! Oh no! If that is the case then they probably wont be filming TAR12 until September then! Which means that regardless if we a show gets cancelled we wont see any TAR until Feb for sure! :( None of this fits in with Phil's "about to begin the 12th race" when he was on The Hour!


He doesn't NECESSARILY need to be physically there to do N.O.W. and my understanding that he won't be travelling with the crew filming it.  However he can get notes from the road and he did tell me that June is the probable start date for the race.  So basically, I want to clarify my earlier post that he will  be for sure INVOLVED with the production as this is his concept.  However not hosting it.

Post by: randomnzer on May 22, 2007, 06:43:47 PM
I'm quite interested about this NZ sighting. To the best of my knowledge, there are no shows similar to TAR which are produced locally, and in fact, the ratings for TAR have been sliding downhill since season 6, and the most recent season which aired (10), was shown in a bad timeslot.

The closest is an episode of Phil's NOW which aired last year, where 5 teams of 2 people who had never met each other raced across NZ - following closely to the TAR format, but with different terminology. It was a 48hr "challenge", and tasks were fairly limited.

If there's anything I can help with, let me know. I've lived in NZ all my life, and have traveled extensively around both the North and South islands.


Cheers,
randomnzer

Thanks randomnzer! Appreciate the offer and hope we can use your help one day on something more interesting.

We are pretty convinced that this was one of two local events:

Either this youth organization (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,12175.msg189108.html#msg189108) or this  mobile phone company (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,12175.msg189243.html#msg189243)

I have obtained the phone # of the youth organizer and I'm sure the other # is findable so if you wanted to do some detecting and find out for sure who sent the teams to play golf here (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,12175.msg189214.html#msg189214)--that would be great!

Post by: georgiapeach on May 23, 2007, 10:05:28 AM
Interesting! If it was for our TAR they would NOT (by contract) have been able to confirm that so it remains very doubtful. I've run up against the "we aren't allowed to say anything" before!

I have already emailed the phone people about their race and am hoping that randomnzer might want to call the Youth race organizer, so we can get more info.

There are no local TARs which are filmed at all. As I mentioned earlier, TAR isn't particularly popular in NZ at the moment, so I would seriously doubt it if any local production company would put the time and money into producing a local series.

As far as I know, NZ doesn't have any laws prohibiting filming in public places - hence there probably aren't any film permits etc. If they are, they are usually handled by the local city councils. The only exception is for Parliament (which requires official accreditation as a media organisation), and if public places are being closed exclusively for filming.

georgiapeach: Unfortunately I'm a tad bit too busy at the moment to phone people. I'd suggest you use something like VOIPBuster, which allows you to make free PC to Landline phone calls (including to NZ), if you have the time to do some ringing around.

And that's exactly what many of the members of our club said
 
Turns out (and I only found this out yesterday after asking about your friends) it was actually a company who run team building exercises in Whangarei - and it was the crowd from First Mobile involved in the day
 
So once again I must apologise for any inconvenience caused to you or your colleagues - particularly considering the reason wasn't as spectacular as the name suggested....

Same goes for Will & Janelle..I just can't see Erin letting Will spend all that time with Janelle :lol: Janelle almost ruined their relationship last summer on BB * between the sheets* so really if either of them are to race I can't see them as partners. More likely I can see Janelle and maybe Howie? or Beau? and Will with either Boogie or why not Erin?

If any other (beyond Alison) of the Big Brother "celebrities" EVER get cast on The Amazing Race, it's time to start watching another show and time to take TAR off the air. The same is true of Survivor "celebrities" (beyond Rob and Amber) and any other types of celebrities. Most of the charm of The Amazing Race is that it features REAL PEOPLE that you want to get to know. I puke at the thought of Celebrity TAR.

I like Rosie too! And I admire her love of the race and her generosity to David and Mary. But  do I want her--or ANY other celebrity on my TAR? For me the answer is no. I have always felt that the charm of TAR was seeing ordinary people coping with extraordinary situations. People who could be your friends or your neighbors or yourself and that let you imagine how you might have reacted. That and the fabulous locations are what have made me never miss an episode, and has kept me loving the show for 11 seasons.

I really hate the idea of a celebrity edition, no matter who the celebrity might be. Even if it is Rosie, whom I admire and respect. And even if she loves the race. I want complete unknowns, please. I want me! :lol:

I don't know apskip, while a TAR celebrity sounds horrible, it COULD end up being way better than All Stars, which had what in my opinion was the most boring race course ever ran.

The only objection I would have for a TAR celebrity/reality edition would be that if TAR12 is the last TAR (which I kind of doubt) then the last season we had with normal teams was TAR10! :(

thanks puddin:D I'm so excited to start driving....no more public bus for me....me and my best friend got lost for 3 hours on the way to the license place using the stupid bus today  (:;)

I'm sorry but I just don't feel the Rosie love.  To me she is just a loud mouth B:) pushing her views on everyone.  I hate to say this but there was probably an alterior motive for getting sponsors to give David and Mary the house. She pushes TAR on the View because she wants to do the show.

In my opinion, Rosie O'Donnell = a more vulgar version of Rosanne Barr(yes, it is possible). I don't watch The View, but I'm certain it will be better without her from what I have read in local newspapers. I think Donald Trump had Rosie pegged correctly, particularly that Barbara Walters would be chomping at the bit to see Rosie depart.

Post by: apskip on May 26, 2007, 03:10:14 PM
Michael, think hard about this:

If you were World Race Productions and had seen smart forums destroy the secrecy (except for the finish) of your last several Amazing Races, would you be trying to over-publicize the start of the next one (presumably without any publicly known and visibileTAR All-Stars) or would you keep it real quiet and try to film the race with minimal outside recognition?

To me, the answer to that question is a no-brainer.
Title: Re: The Future of The Amazing Race & TAR 12
Post by: michael on May 26, 2007, 03:12:07 PM
That would be the logical answer, yes, but if the rumors are true I don't know wtf CBS/WRP or whoever runs things was thinking. If normal seasons get spoiled, imagine how spoiled a celebrity season will be.

Kogs, I don't know the answer to the "near the end of the season" question. The easy answer to the unqualified question is AR1, where the second episode was due to air on 9/12/01 and got preempted by national events of grave importance.

However, my point was not historic, it was one of whether the Amazing Race is commanded by edict similar to the Edict of Nantes or the Edict of Worms to run in consecutive weeks. I have never heard of such an edict issed by CBS. It has just been their practice to do so and such practices can be changed merely by doing so.

God, I hope you are right.

And to pass the time, I have been watching Amazing Race Asia, which I skipped when it came out.  But, I started watching it and damn its actuallly a really, really good season of AR (minus Phil, which is really its only big minus).

And talk about some beautiful and fun stunts.  They got to do more in the first 7 episodes then the last two seasons did put together it seems.

Hopefully filming will begin soon, so we can all resort back to normal (at least here).

But I may have to make a thread to talk about it on--who else has seen it?? Can't watch it all by myself! :lol:

I saw Amazing Race Asia from episode 4 to the finish. It was just like the early days of regular Amazing Race. Lot's of fun, lots of rivalry against the "villain" team. In addition to the fact that it was first-class Amazing racing, I had some personal interests in watching. My brother-in-law grew up in (and his parents still live in) Dunedin New Zealand, so when they fly there I was really focused. The same with the Devonport episode, where my sister and brother-in-law have lived for 21 years. Although I have been to New Zealand I have never visited Devonport, so that episode had consdeirable special appeal.

I can highly recommend Amazing Race Asia. I watched it on YouTube when it was first on there, but I understand that it probably isn't available there any longer. If we can find a current source, I will be happy to watch it again weekly so we can have something to comment on.

CBS Scaring Affils With Edgy Slate


A.J. Frutkin

JUNE 04, 2007 -

CBS station owners have watched approvingly as the network has climbed to a near-dominant position over the past decade. So it is noteworthy that the fall schedule presentation at CBS’ annual affiliates meeting in Las Vegas last week displeased many station executives.

CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler pointed to the new fall programs as proof of the network’s “commitment to be daring.” Perhaps nowhere was that commitment more evident than in the clips screened from Swingtown, the 1970s-set midseason drama about *** in the suburbs. For sure, the period piece elicited the most outright negative response.

“I don’t like it, and I don’t see the need for it,” said Donald Smullin, general manager of the Eureka Television Group, which owns Eureka, Calif.-based CBS affiliate KVIQ. Smullin said the show “pandered” to a national obsession with *** and drugs, adding, “I don’t think it’s a worthwhile project.” Many believed the show’s content seemed more appropriate for cable. “I just hope that we don’t alienate the viewer base that is more conservative,” said Greg Phipps, president of the privately-owned Lima, Ohio-based CBS affiliate WLMO-TV.

The Swingtown clips came at the end of the presentation. Earlier, Tassler screened the full pilot of geek sitcom The Big Bang Theory, which, after a slow start, completely won over the audience. Clips of Cuban family drama Cane did the same. But a cutdown of reality show Kid Nation underwhelmed many attendees, as did clips of the vampire-themed drama Moonlight. The full pilot screening of crime drama/musical Viva Laughlin also took the crowd by surprise. “Some of the singing and dancing was a bit over the top,” said Paul McTear, president and CEO of Raycom Media, which owns eight CBS affiliates.

Although the presentation may have perplexed station execs, most agreed CBS has earned the right to step outside the box, and is doing so from a position of strength. “If the purpose was to be bold, then the purpose was served,” said Bill Carroll, vp/director of programming at Katz Television Group

heres a interesting qoute from variety about jericho, that will have todo with tar in the future

Quote
"I really think that what has been learned here is that networks are going to have to look at numbers and who is watching their show and who is downloading their show in a different way from here on out," Barbee said. "I think they have to understand that the Nielsens are not telling the story anymore and that the 18-49 demographic they're all so keen on is online and that's how increasingly they are getting their news and entertainment."

CBS Beams Viewers Alerts on Overruns
Uses E-mail, Text Message or Broadband TiVo
By Michele Greppi
CBS is deploying state-of-the-art TV technology to answer a question that dogs its viewers on any Sundays when a football game or a golf match delays the start of prime time.
CBS will launch a digital viewer alert system this fall that will tell all who have signed up for the service, via e-mail or text message, just how late Sunday's prime-time shows will start on nights that have been delayed by sports or other live programming.
That will let them know when to be in front of their sets or how to adjust their recording times for programs that will be affected by the delay.

For a particularly lucky million or more viewers who have TiVo's broadband service, no manual adjustment will be necessary, because TiVo will zap an instantly adjusted schedule to its recorders so that those viewers' devices capture the programs—and only the programs—they want. (No such adjustment is possible with TiVo's other service, which updates recorders nightly via phone.)

To expand the instant reprogramming strategy will require separate arrangements with each cable carrier in each market, CBS Marketing Group President George Schweitzer told TelevisionWeek at the CBS affiliates convention in Las Vegas.

"Everyone's got their own system. There's not one signal that could be sent out everywhere," he said. "It's complicated, but it's not impossible, and we're working on that."

The viewer-alert initiative was inspired by a night last season when a football run-over delayed "The Amazing Race" by about a half-hour.

"I was on the message boards that night—I go on TV.com and Meevee and all these places—and [the chatter] was really vehement. The people were really pissed, because they had set their VCRs and DVRs," Mr. Schweitzer said. "I had been talking to our engineers and our digital people for a while about program alerts.

"We put crawls on. We've got that down pat and we know how to do that, but that's only speaking to the people who are watching."

There will be a publicity blitz about how to sign up for the viewer alert service before the start of the football season.

"We're going to tell you there's a delay, so if you're at the dinner table and you're not planning to watch TV until 8 o'clock, when you want to see 'Viva Laughlin,' you get the e-mail saying it's going to be 15 minutes delayed, please reset your VCR," Mr. Schweitzer said. "That's a good thing. We're helping you because you want to be helped. I think people will be happy with that."

Where to post this? Good a place as any  :lol: and yeah we'll use this if they ever mess with our TAR  :jam:

To the Fans of Jericho:
Wow!

Over the past few weeks you have put forth an impressive and probably unprecedented display of passion in support of a prime time television series. You got our attention; your emails and collective voice have been heard.

As a result, CBS has ordered seven episodes of "Jericho" for mid-season next year.  In success, there is the potential for more. But, for there to be more "Jericho," we will need more viewers.

A loyal and passionate community has clearly formed around the show.  But that community needs to grow.   It needs to grow on the CBS Television Network, as well as on the many digital platforms where we make the show available.

We will count on you to rally around the show, to recruit new viewers with the same grass-roots energy, intensity and volume you have displayed in recent weeks.

At this time, I cannot tell you the specific date or time period that "Jericho" will return to our schedule.  However, in the interim, we are working on several initiatives to help introduce the show to new audiences.  This includes re-broadcasting "Jericho" on CBS this summer, streaming episodes and clips from these episodes across the CBS Audience Network (online), releasing the first season DVD on September 25 and continuing the story of Jericho in the digital world until the new episodes return. We will let you know specifics when we have them so you can pass them on.

On behalf of everyone at CBS, thank you for expressing your support of "Jericho" in such an extraordinary manner.  Your protest was creative, sustained and very thoughtful and respectful in tone.  You made a difference. 

Sincerely,

Nina Tassler
President, CBS Entertainment


P.S.   Please stop sending us nuts 

this was in an artical on thehollywood reporter with quotes from les moonves about katie couric and then this about jericho that can used for tar if and when the day ever needs it.

Quote
Meanwhile, Moonves said the network's decision last week to reinstate the canceled drama "Jericho" following an outpouring of viewer e-mails and other protests spoke to the growing influence of the Internet on broadcasters.

"It was a campaign that couldn't be ignored," Moonves said of the mobilization of "Jericho" fans, calling it "astonishing and well-organized."

As part of the campaign, disgruntled viewers delivered thousands of pounds of peanuts to CBS' corporate offices, a reference to a scene in the season finale in which Skeet Ulrich's character replies, "Nuts!" to a demand that the town in Kansas, which had been isolated by a nuclear attack, surrender.

i think that we will always have a season of tar because it can be used in the summer or midseason or anytime they want. but the jericho people really have lit the fire to how to save a show

I don't know exactly what that guy does but let's say some kind of pre-production:

The teams were spotted in Miami airport last time 11/20, right? And say 5 days before that for rules, photos, etc--that would be 11/15.

If we assume that guy started 10/01 then that is 6 weeks before the start of the race.

And six weeks from 5/01/07 would be in 2 more days!  :o

Keep in mind that they probably wouldn't want the teams in  US  airports anywhere near the 4th of July either.

So I think anytime now till say June 28 OR sometime after July 10 sounds about right.

I was at my airport yesterday morning--and I had my eyes peeled! And just in case--I can be there anytime in about 20 minutes with my camera in hand! :happy:

I would like to add one more Trave Channel show to my recommended list - The Kids Are in Charge. It premiered tonight and was delightful. You might think that a show where the kids make the choices of activities could be boring, but not in Hawaii. These kids decided to do these things:

1. Sea Life Park to swim with dolphins
2. Surfing on Waikiki Beach
3. Atlantis Submarine ride
4. Polynesian cultural Center

For their parents doing a special parents-only activity, their kids selected parasailing. Good choices all. The show gave the kids several thousand dollars in appropraite daily increments to pay for everything as long as they did not splurge on extras or expensive meals.

I am looking forward to see which country is the site for next week's family and what those activities are.

I believe it was AR11: 10.1 Million and AR10 broke 11 Million i think it was 11.3.  So ratings declinde over 1 million viewers between the two

Damn finally something I know about.

Season Ten ranked 31st and season 11 ranked 44th out of the 142 pminetime series on the 5 broadcast networks.

Season ten averaged 11.5 compared to season 11's 10.1.

But much of that difference is due to to factors.

Season ten recieved a substantual increase in viewers everytime there was a Football overrun of at least 10 minutes (roughly ever other episode).

While season 11 took a ratings hit with Golf overruns (only two I believe), and going agains't shows like the Oscars.

If you factor out those differences the difference between season's was much smaller (under half a million) and actually reflects the general decline most shows had in the fall as opposed to the spring.

But the show did very well with the ad friendly age group (something CBS general does poorly with).  But while its ratings were solid (if not remarkable), there has been a growing concern that having two cycles a year has diluted the shows appeal and has increased the chance of viewer fatigue.

Though of course out the last four cycles two have been breaks of format, witht he god awful family edition (not tha racers, but the tasks and the places), and the all stars (which lost some of its appeal by not presenting us with fresh racers (something even the Family edition did fairly well).

But compare it to the other seasons.
1.  8.8 million
2.  10.3 million
3.  8.98 million
4.  8.32 million
5.  10.73 million
6.  11.5 million
7.  13.0 million
8.  10.8 million  (family Eidtion started fairly strong and took a ratings hit as it progressed)
9.  9.1 million (Started much stronger and took a hit when it changed air time, and possile day?.)
10.  11.5 million
11.  10.1 million (all stars)

So really considering the general decline in viewers ships that almost every series has over the years, the show is doing well.

Season 10 was tied for the 2cd highest ratings (though some of that was due to sports overruns, so it would really be the 3rd most watched season).

I would just like to point out how much higher Season 7 ratings are.. hmmm wonder why.

I just also want to add the two weeks after Romber were eliminated the show had a spike from some kind of sport i think it was b-ball March Madness.  So its posisble w/o those two week, the show would have fallen below 10 million viewers. And only the pre. was delayed for golf.  Amazing Race All Stars Failed, expectations were much higher and it failed.  And ironically Amazing Race 10 set up to pretty much fail [Sunday Nights, and was originally only picked up for 1 season] was a success!

And Season 9 NEVER started out strong, the pre. was barely 10 million viewers. I remember reading about that on the internet in a couple places. The lack of viewership follwed from AR8.

And like i said CBS making AR a midseason show is a disaster.  First off it did better than Season 9 and they brought it back after that season so i feel it should have been kept.  Secondly it does much better in the Fall/Winter thanks to football, so i dont know why they wouldnt keep it there and then just keep it on in Feb too.  Sunday night is a hard night and AR does not cost that much to make, i really dont get why they are wasting so much time on a drama that will prolly fail anyway!

Returning to the theme of "what do you watch this summer since there is little of value on?", I offer a recommendation for the new show "Giada in Paradise" on the Food network, Saturday at 9pm EDT. Giada di Laurentiis herself is completely over the top, with the greatest stock of superlative language I have ever heard. If she has been there, is doing it, is seeing it, or is eating it, it must be the best by definition and she tells you that. If you can get by that, this is a wonderful travel/food show. this episode featured Santorini with Crete thrown in as a surprise visit. Next week will be Capri. I recommend this show!

Yes they did benefit from one BB week.  And while that did boost its average.  The golf overrun and going agains't the oscars (the first truely major TV event the show has faced in its history) more then balance it out.

And yeah season 7 managed its great ratings on two factors.  One was of course the crossover appeal of teh survivor audience due to Rob and Amber.  It also benefited from following the (at the time) most watched season of AR.

And while Season 9 started at just over 10 million viewers (and thus a disappointment in comparison to season 6 and 7) the fact that it managed those ratings after the strong decline in viewers from start to finish of the Family Edition as well as the general critical and viewer disappointment and the fact that in general (for several years now) shows int he spring get ower numbers then those in the fall, isn't a real disappointment.  What hurt it, was the switch tothe later time slot which cost the show on average a millin to a million and a half viewers each week.

As to season's 11 perception.  Yes it was considered a ratings disappointment.  But I also strongly believed that CBS was also aware taht while they were hoping for closer to season 6 & 7 ratings, that it was possible for it do worse.  Add to that knowingly putting it up so early in its season to the oscars, knowing that its biggest marketing point (Rob & Amber who they knew wouldn't be around long) and the fact that shows don't generally maintain ratings in teh spring, coudn't see it as that big of a disappointment).

The show gets fairly stable if unremarkable ratings.  It does better then average for CBS in both total viewers and in demo numbers, and hasn't really suffered teh decline (% wise) that most shows at 11 seasons suffer.

While of course want the show to continue.  I have stated (int he ratings thread) at the first episode of season 11 that it is quite possible that htey might go down to one cycle a year (to what it actually started with), so to help prevent the natural decline in viewers that shows go through. 

But I also believe that they might bump it back up to 2 for this season depending on two factors.

1.  When filming starts and finishes (thus when its in the can and could start to be broadcast.

2.  And how their new line up performs in September.  Its the most ambitious and risky lineup of the 5 networks, and much of it plays agains't the typical makeup of a "average" CBS viewer.

Its a big risk and one that might fail miserable (in fact many TV anaylist expect 3 of the new shows to fail hard and fast.

 :welcome2: Hi swimmer. You can start here (http://writerdirector.com/film_commissions.htm) for USA and here (http://www.afci.org/index.htm) for international. Or you could just ask google: "City X film permits" and sniff around using the results you get. But few film bureaus will post permit details online (many don't even have websites). Good hunting.

Post by: Slowhatch on June 21, 2007, 09:40:48 PM
Oh, I've got the sr-22. In particular, the two-tone paint job gives it away as a "generation 3" plane with an X-package (here (http://www.cirrusdesign.com/g3/exterior.aspx), bottom of page). This press release (http://www.cirrusdesign.com/about/news/press/default.aspx?id=896) (again, bottom of page) states that the gen-3s will only be used for demos, not sold; that fits in with the free promo from CBS (and fwiw, the guy next to Phil is an instructor, not a cameraman; Phil holds a student pilot license that expires on his birthday next year). There's only a handful of sr-22s licensed to Cirrus with tail numbers that start with 36; I'll figure it out eventually.

If it's pirates you're after, how about a mashup map (http://www.icc-ccs.org/extra/display.php?yr=2007)?  :pirate5

Who knew modern day pirates were so prevalent--but I want my pirate guys to be more of the Douglas Fairbanks/Errol Flynn/Orlando Bloom variety! Muscles, scantily dressed, a little rough around the edges.... :flirt:

the start city depends on what airlines are where. you need an american or united hub atleast or international airlines for a start city. New Orleans doesnt have those. right now if i had to bet on a start city, id go dallas,houston, or even chicago again just for airlines availibility. maybe they start in boston

Major cities that have never been on the opening or closing end of an Amazing Race are:

1. Boston
2. Atlanta
3. Cincinnati
4. Detroit
5. Houston
6. St. Louis
7. Kansas City
8. Minneapolis
9. San Diego

I like Boston or Atlanta for the start of AR12 and San Diego for the finish.

I decided to do this more scientifically. All of the metro areas in my prior post are valid as being in the top 20 as ranked by the 2000 U.S. Census. However, I did miss a few that are significant:

Washington DC/Baltimore
Philadelphia
Cleveland
Tampa

If you want to go into the top 30, then you can add:

Pittsburgh
Portland
Sacramento
Milwaukee
Orlando
Indianapolis
San Antonio

Sorry, Peach, New Orleans is #35. Also, having used the New Orleans International Airport numerous times I can tell you that it has flights to Latin America but almost none nonstop to Europe or the Far East. Keep hanging out at the Atlanta airport since it's prime in my view.

Who can watch Logan International Airport in Boston?

I guess it all depends on the route that they plan on taking, if Europe was on on the itinerary for next week I could see that being problematic and backup plans being activated.

Brunei?

From sucks:

Quote
Just got back from Brunei as I work as a I.T systems consultant for retail and small to medium sized commercial companies. I heard rumours from staff at the Yayasan shopping centre, which is in the capital, that they had been contacted by producers in the US for fliming of a TV show towards the end of August.

Does anyone else have knowledge of this?

I can't answer about Brunei--but kogs and I  spent the afternoon checking out Boston.

I spoke to Patte in the Mayor's office who originally confirmed that some permits had been issued to CBS. However, they are more of permit "facilitators" who help direct people thru the film permit process, and therefore did not know exactly when/where/what permits had been issued. Through a process of one name leading to another and some excellent info from kogs, I ended up speaking with three different people in three different film permit areas. The last person I spoke to is the one where "the buck stops here" and after speaking with him, he is confident that no permits have been issued within the city limits for Boston by CBS, TAR, WRP, RT technologies or Earthvision. While it is possible that areas outside of Boston are not ruled out, it seems like the original trail of "some CBS permits" may relate more to something related to CBS radio (possibly the Boston Pops 4th of July concert?) and not to our TAR. Sorry guys....

But I thought Boston traffic/airport/ tourist crowds would make a TAR start there a logistical nightmare anyway, so we'll just have to keep on looking! Everyone stay alert though as this may be the week we DO start to get spoilers. :happy:

If you were celebrating American history, where would you start an Amazing Race? It might not be in Boston city limits, but Boston's Logan Airport would definitely be involvevd. How about the Green at Lexington where the Redcoats vs. Patriots started the Revolutionary War on April 19, 1775. For those who know about it, this is why Patriots Day is held on April 19 in Massachusetts and the Boston Marathon is run on that day. Too late for that, but of course there is always today July 4. The alternate site would be Concord, where the second battle of the Revolutionary War took place hours later.

Since it is still July 4, I thought I would toss out a challenge related to this date in history. It is worthy of a Jeopardy final question:

Name the four U.S. Presidents who were either born on or died on July 4. For extra credit, what were the years for each one.

John Adams died on July 4, 1826, with his last words being "Thomas Jefferson lives." Sadly, a few hours ealier Thomas Jefferson had passed. The third would be James Monroe on July 4, 1831. Calvin Coolidge was born July 4, 1872.

How do I know this you ask??? I have my bachelors degree in history and am OBSESSED with the History Channel. I did have to look up the one who was born, I only knew the three who had died.

wifeofUSMCsgt, congratulations, you win exactly what I won from naming the beginning of Amazing Race 8 as the tie to the Manhattan Bridge, a challenge posed in December by GeorgiaPeach. That is precisely nothing except the honor of being able to answer a very difficult question. I have known the three deaths that you did, but last night on the Chicago pre-fireworks show being televised nationally on UPN channels someone asked Lake Michigan area audience members who was born on the 4th of July. Nobody knew, so he gave the answer on TV. That's how I found out.

And damnit, hurry the hell up race.  Start, like now.  The sooner you start, the sooner it ends, the faster it can replace shitty ass programming on CBS.

Oh and guys and gals here.  Now that they voted and released the 7 wonders of the Modern World.  Don't you think its about time that AR hit the few it hasn't been too.  I would love to see  Peru's Machu Picchu and Jordan's Petra.  I think AR has been to the other 5.  THough I can't remember if they actually visited teh Colosium in Rome in season 1, or just were outside it.

As I recall they were just outside the Colosseum in TAR.  Jordan's Petra would be impressive to visit but I couldn't see the race going to Jordan with the current climate in the middle east - which is a shame.

Was surfing Facebook tonight and in the "addicted to Amazing Race" group....a poster said CBS has announced that TAR will not continue after TAR 12. I came here and surfed a few threads and didn't see any mention of it. It strikes me as bizarre that CBS would announce something like that without knowing how TAR 12 does. Is there anything to this, or was it a poster blowing smoke? I have been out of the loop since TAR 11 finished so it might be old news, and I apologize if it is.

It is highly, highly doubtful that there is any accuracy on that.

Even the lower rated All Stars was higher rated then over half of CBS schedule.

And to make that choice without even yet running 12 is really, really not how television production works.

So I wouldn't worry about it.

CBS’s ‘Jericho’ Could Return Next Month—Or Next Year
“Jericho” fans, get ready to go nuts.

There’s a slim chance the CBS cult favorite could return to the air next month.

The seven-episode second season has wrapped production and the network is eyeing the show as a potential replacement for one of several time periods that might open up in the coming weeks. In other words, if freshman efforts “Kid Nation,” “Cane,” “Moonlight” or the upcoming “Viva Laughlin” tank in the ratings, CBS is considering firing out “Jericho.”

CBS’ other midseason drama, "Swingtown," is not going to be ready until next year, though network also has “The Amazing Race” and game show “Power of 10” available to fill one-hour slots. CBS scheduling head Kelly Kahl cautioned that the new freshman lineup is performing solidly and that no show is guaranteed the next opening.

Post by: georgiapeach on October 04, 2007, 10:57:17 AM
I have been  thinking that at this point they may wait till Jan/Feb to air TAR 12 --mostly just because they don't seem to have any plans for TAR 13 underway--so there would be nothing available for a spring airing if they use it now.  And at this late date, wouldn't a spring airing be better for TAR in terms of publicity and promotion and sweeps?? And seems like Phil is tied up thru Nov 16 so it would be tight to start shooting another race so quickly. But that is all guesswork for me...

Of course, it is always possible they aren't planning another race till they see how TAR 12 does. And I'm always ready to see it whenever--so bring it on!

I heard from a very reliable source the Power of Ten is going to replace Kid Nation if it tanks.  I am still trying to figure out which show TAR is going after.  I do know it is right there waiting to go.

Hey Tammy know what will replace cane in a few weeks once its cancelled? been reading and heard that its prob first on the chopping block despite what cbs people say.

there setting them selfs up for the potential strike. and btw even though cane got 4 more episode scripts ordered doesnt mean it will get shown especally if ratings tumble. lets relax here. cane,kid nation, and viva lauglin are 3 shows that will not all survive. maybe 1 if they are lucky. my guesses in the coming weeks is password is headed for survivors slot in between seasons. power of 10 mid season episodes will head for wed at 8.  followed by jericho. cane and viva launlin slots are the tricky ones. tar will go in slot with swingtown in the other.

Post by: mswood on October 14, 2007, 07:27:34 PM
Yeah, CAne is doing below expectation, but not so bad to be immediately cancelled.  A lot of this I am sure is the overall feeling in hollywood tha that they must be careful with the strong possability of a strike.  So many series are getting the order to prepare additional scripts, but arent' getting back orders on production of episodes.  So that if a strike happens they have a few more completed scripts to help the overall network.  But if the strike doesn't happen expect a sudden rush of shows getting either cancelled or pulled.

Kid Nation for example is doing quite poorly (except for the very, very young).  If it wasn't for the possability of a strike it would have been pulled aready.

Moonlight, took a huge hit with the opening of Women's Murder Club and if that holds this coming week, it will be ins erious problems.

And then we have Viva, which is getting the best possable launch window with an opening being CBS strongest show.  I am praying that it fails miserable.  I hope it loses over 50% of its lead in audeince, which is an absolute sign of a terrible performance.

As to AR, I am no convinced that due to the strike we wont get it before teh spring.  What we might get before that though (if a strike does occur and if it last long at all, not to mention the possability of an actors strike later next year) that we might get a order for season 13, before 12 airs.

That wouldn't surprise me at all.  It gives CBS several options.  One a summer show if the striek doesn't last to long, or an early opener, to help hold the schedule in place for the fall.

I do think that Kid Nations fate depends on this week.  It it stays this low, it will be pulled.  But Unlike most shwos like this that get pulled that usually means SAturday runs or run them off online only.  I think its possible that they will hold it until the strike authorization vote, just to see how the wind blows and thats not far off.

Right now the only reason that makes any since for AR to come back before February, is if three things all happen (four would really help.

Kid Nations atings continue to slide, Moonlight does as poorly or worse this Friday, Viva Bombs on both THursday and Sunday (God how I want that to happen regardless), and Cane needs to fall further.

Witht he first set of sweeps coming up, CBS needs to do okay. Th ePOwer of !0, showed that it would underperform agains't a full network scedule (instead of the weaker summer), they have 8 episodes of Jericho that can be run.  But does the stuido think it can deliver strongly.  It rarely got over 10 million viewers last year (though its demo's when it did was stronger then AR).  And it has one other show waiting int eh wings that can be used immediately to feel holes with originals, but no its an unknown.

My question to the detectives.  If season 12 started, and did okay and a strike happened.  Does that lead enough time for the producers to cast, plan and film another cycle for March April and May.  Because if a strike happens that will be when the networks need holes plugged.

If it can be done, then AR is a viable hole filler now.  If not then it would be far smarter to hold off.  I personally think its smarter to hold off, and green light another cycle if the strike is a go.

6.99 million watched the premaire, and it got sent to the web when it got down to 4.9something million viewers, and that was a summer show. kid nation stated in the 9 iirc and now is down to 7 million. strike or no strike fall tv is differnt, there is no way kid nation stays on wed night if its numbers continue going down which it prob will in the 6 million range.

The final numbers for Kid Nation this week were 6.91 million viewers.  CBS was significantly behind both NBC and ABC, and barely above fox.  Hell it wasn't that much ahead of the CW.

And it was a terrible drag on the night as a whole.  At 9pm CBS averaged 14 plus million viewers, at 10pm it averaged 13.3 million viewers. 

Kid Nation isn't even delivering half the audience of the rest of its Wednesday schedule, that is terrible.  Again, If the ratings stay this low, they are stupid not to pull it.  A CSI rerun would probably get higher numbers.

And with the first batch of DVR numbers coming out the word is that reality tv and game shows didn't increase much at all (by genre the smallest increases.  While procedurals increased the most.

from media life talkin about viva crapin

Quote
The buzz
To say media people aren’t looking upon “Viva Laughlin” favorably would be a huge understatement. Most rated this the worst new drama this fall and think it will be one of the first shows canceled.
 
The only show with a worse reputation this fall is ABC’s “Cavemen,” and that's not by much.
 
“I think the list of least promising new dramas starts and ends with ‘Viva Laughlin,’” says one media researcher. “It’s sort of the ‘Cop Rock’ for the 2000s. They’re going to preview it after ‘CSI’ on a Thursday, and then try to get people tune in after ‘60 Minutes,’ but I’d rather slit my wrists. It’s going to be very bad.”
 
If “Laughlin” performs as badly as most think it will, CBS is expected to plug in a new cycle of “The Amazing Race.”

FOX's numbers for baseball at 10 p.m. were unavailable. Among the other networks, NBC's "ER" led the way with a 6.6./11. "Big Shots" was second in households for ABC at 6.0/10. CBS' "Viva Laughlin" (5.8/10) had a few more viewers than ABC, but the murder mystery-with-music lost more than half of its lead-in audience and also fell at the half-hour mark

Final numbers for Viva are worse then the fast nationals :lol3:.  It got 8.39 in total viewers and scored a 2.3 in adults 18-49 :yess:.

It is offically the worst performance for CBS in that time slot in the last year.   :rotf:

Its lead out CSI was CBS most watched show of the last two weeks (and the most watched show on any network last night) with 21.22 million viewers.   Viva held only 39.5% of its audience. 

That is the worst retention of a lead in that CBS has had, in over 5 years. :lol:.

I would expect about 6.5 on Sunday.

Oh and AR worst week last year scored higher in both adults and total viewers and that was up agains't the damn Oscars one of the most watch shows each year.

And Viva did so well, I am just  :lol3: dying.

It did 6.77 million viewers and a 1.2/ 2 among adults 18-49. Comparably, year-ago occupant The Amazing Race 10 averaged 10.89 million viewers and a 3.8/ 9 in the demo.

Thats some awesome scheduling there CBS. (:;) (:;).

To compare to the history of the Amazing Race.  The show has never scored a demo number amoung adults 18-49 that low.  Never, not once in 11 cycles.

This show will be cancelled either this week or next, I am absolutely sure.  Its hurting the whole night.

Breaking news from tvguide
Quote
Viva Laughlin has crapped out. After scoring a miniscule 1.2 rating in
viewers 18 to 49 in its time period premiere on Sunday, CBS is getting ready
to pull the plug on its musical drama after only two episodes. An
announcement is expected as soon as Monday afternoon. The Amazing Race is the most likely candidate to take over the 8 p.m. slot on the night. While CBS has new episodes of Jericho ready to go, the network is leaning toward launching it later this season rather then use it as Laughlin replacement. With a writers’ strike possible, the network wants fresh scripted shows at the ready. CBS will also want a few weeks to promote Jericho before its premiere. —Reporting by Stephen Battaglio

If you're like Tim Goodman and believe that the first real cancellation of the season doesn't happen until a scripted show takes a fall, then today is a very special day for you dead pool watchers. We already had our first non-cancellation cancellation with Fox's "Nashville" (which was supposed to return in mid-October and then... didn't), and our first official cancellation with the CW's "Online Nation." But according to a high-placed source at CBS, today brings our first scripted bloodshed of '07-'08, and it's... drumroll...

"Viva Laughlin."

It's not a huge shock. The sneak preview on Thursday lost nearly 60 percent of its "CSI" lead-in audience, and Sunday's timeslot premiere lost about a quarter of the people who watched on Thursday. (And that's on average; the last half-hour of "Viva Laughlin" to ever air was down more than 40 percent from Thursday's first half-hour.) Any way you slice it, it was a ratings fiasco.

Official announcement's coming later today, and the cancellation is effective immediately. A "CSI" repeat will plug the gap this Sunday, and "Amazing Race" will be back Sundays at 8 (or whenever the late football game ends on double-header weeks) starting Nov. 4.

Well since we have been doing birthdays.  Mine is October 31, so I am counting this as a HUGE present.
