In previous seasons that had "normal" premieres in September, here is when they started...

TAR 15  Saturday   2009-07-18  Los Angeles, CA, (LA River)
TAR 13  Tuesday    2008-04-22  Los Angeles, CA, (Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum)
TAR 10  Saturday   2006-05-27  Seattle, WA, (Gas Works Park)
TAR 8   Thursday   2005-07-07  New York City, NY, (Brooklyn Bridge)
TAR 3   Friday     2002-08-09  Everglades National Park, FL


Not including TAR 1 - just because it was the first.
So I predict sometime between April 22 and August 9. :lol:
Cameras ready at all times!

My best bet is that filming may occur between now and Mid-August.  So they would have the time to do final editing before the Fall TV Season begins in Late September.

Hopefully no more Los Angeles Start

Bertram and Elise have more or less said every start will be in L.A. from now on.  At least until they can get their budget back up again.

hey guys,
I know for sure that the Race started today. I know someone and their partner that will be on the race.  They had their LA rounds back in Mid March during Spring Break.

Don't know if this is 100% true, but thought I'd throw it out there as a possibility.

Remember that TAR13 was filmed from April 22 to May 14, and it still aired in September.  The race may begin some time after Memorial Day weekend, which is a busy travel time.  So they could start sometime in June.

The NFL season Sunday telecasts start on Sept. 12. I suspect that Sept. 19 is a more probable start date for AR17 than one week later. If it is straight through then Amazing Race 17 telecasts if it is an 11 leg race will end on Sunday Nov. 28, but with one break in the schedule for something or with a 12 leg race they would end as usual on the first Sunday in December, the 5th.

Post by: theschnauzers on July 16, 2010, 11:41:43 PM
I think it's going to be the 26th. NBC and FOX are treating September 20th-26th as the main premiere week, and CBS tends to want as many of its shows in that primary premiere week as possible. CBS isn't about to air a TAR finale on Thanksgiving weekend; so I expect the finale will be December 5th or 12th depending on the number of episodes (11 or 12).
Title: Re: TAR 17 Start Date
Post by: kathyb5783 on July 17, 2010, 09:48:21 AM
I agree it will probably be Sept. 26th as that is the start date for Dexter and they have often been the same. 

This is my first post here.  I've been reading for a few years now and have so much enjoyed the "race within the race".  Y'all are fantastic!!

Amazing Race 17 premieres Sunday, September 26 with a special 90-minute premier 8:30 - 10:00 p.m.

It then resumes its 8:00 - 9:00 p.m. regular timeslot the following week.

Sounds like there'll be a lot in this premiere!

Also, it sounds like only a one-leg premiere, and possibly an eleven-leg race.  Maybe twelve if the season ends on December 12.

Personally I love the 90 minuet opening legs of Season 4 and 10.  Enough time to get to the names and faces of the teams (especially for the general public who haven't got them down months before it airs) and enough time to showcase teams doing real tasks.  Even on first legs I have liked, I feel we miss a ton, and sometimes with the two hour single episodes it seems like a little to much filler.  For CBS its a win win, and expanding the footage for 90 minutes cost them a small fraction more (primarily due to more editing) and reaps them a 50% increase in revenue.  And since TAR isn't really syndicated (not really) they don't have to worry about the difficulty in selling it for an off network run. 

But based off of this it looks like an 11 episode season (of course they could always air two episodes over one night). 
Title: Re: TAR 17 Start Date
Post by: theschnauzers on July 24, 2010, 10:54:33 AM
I also like the realism CBS is giving the actual start time for the premiere. 8:30 will be a half-hour later than the normal east coast start time. CBS is pushing back the start time of 60 Minutes by a half-hour as well. And Undercover Boss is starting an hour later than normal for it that same night. (CBS won't start the new season for CSI:NY on Sundays until the following week.)

It's not clear to me what the scheduling is on the west coast (maybe a 4pm regional NFL game west coast time?), but at least we can set our DVRs with a high level of confidence that for that night, the show will start when it is scheduled to.
Title: Re: TAR 17 Start Date
Post by: georgiapeach on July 24, 2010, 11:19:53 AM

I do agree that the 90 minute premiers are the best. As stunning Iceland was, I got bored with the driving after a while and had to start Fast Forwarding.

If there's 11 legs, I hope that there's no F4 NEL. Too predictable.

So excited for a 90 minute premiere! Hour long premieres always seem so rushed to me. But I'll only be around for the first episode  :(  Is it sad that I'm thinking of not going on a month long trip to the Philippines, Hong Kong and Vietnam so I won't miss any episodes?  :lol:

Sure it's eleven?  With the money rolling in (has to be if the show was finally able to start out of L.A. and on the East Coast for the first time in ages), it might be twelve.  Such a late start in September does sound like eleven, but depending on the finale date, it could be twelve.  (I'm still thinking a December 5 finale means eleven, and a December 12 finale means twelve.)
Title: Re: TAR 17 Start Date
Post by: mswood on July 25, 2010, 05:09:04 PM
We probably could figure it out based on the typical pattern of the Sunday finale for Survivor.  Though it would also help to know the number of episodes ordered for Undercover Boss to see if its likely to see a two hour block of TAR sometime during the cycle.  This is something they have done during the spring on Sunday's but not so far in the Fall on Sunday.

Typically the season ends on the first Sunday of December. That only gives 11 weeks. I'm hoping that there are 12 legs, and the last 2 legs comprise TAR 17's 2-hour season finale a la TAR 5 (there's a really big gap between Ghana and St. Petersburg).

Okay, gotcha. But I do remember TAR 10 ended on the second Sunday in December, so I don't think it HAS to end on the first one. But I also wouldn't mind a two-hour finale. We'll have to wait and see I guess.
