CBS is Pairing Big Brother & The Amazing Race

 Source: Variety Friday, April 2, 2004

Variety reports that CBS has firmed up plans for its summer schedule, and the biggest news is the networks' decision to pair established hit Brother Brother with the Emmy-winning The Amazing Race to create a two-hour reality block on Tuesdays from 9-11 p.m. CBS is also planning to bow Mike Fleiss' The Will during the summer.

Both "Brother" and "Race" will have 90-minute season premieres on Tuesday, July 6, with Big Brother 5 airing from 8-9:30 p.m. and "Race" following from 9:30-11 p.m.

After that, "Brother" will settle into its regular thrice-weekly broadcast pattern, airing Tuesdays at 9, Thursdays at 8 and Saturdays at 9 until the end of September. That's a change from last summer, when "Brother" aired Tuesdays and Fridays at 8 and Wednesday at 9 p.m.

"Race" will air Tuesdays at 10 p.m. starting July 13.

In addition to their schedule proximity, "Brother" and "Race" will be linked in another way: One of this summer's "Race" contestants will be 23-year-old Alison Irwin -- the runner-up in last summer's "Big Brother 4." She'll be paired with her boyfriend, Donny.
