The Amazing Race 26 Spoilers / Re: TAR 26 Ratings

To repeat what I've said in the past, CBS doesn't care what the live, live plus same day, and live plus three day numbers are -- they use the live plus seven and live plus 30 days data, as well as all alternate platforms, and other factors such as name sponsors that are looking for views in their target demo (which TAR has always done well with, i.e., upper middle class

and upper class consumers in the 18-49 and 18-54 demo) and global syndication. With TAR, CBS gets those things, and most likely all those things taken together pay all of the production costs and then some. CBS is not losing money on TAR, and the existence of regional TAR franchises also puts money in CBS' pockets.

CBS has its new on demand streaming service for its shows including TAR for a monthly fee, and they're now working on expanding their other streaming service to include not only its owned and operated stations (thus, all local programming in those markets) to all of its affiliate markets.

In other words, TAR is helping lead the way to a television landscape that may allow people to bypass cable altogether by streaming local CBS stations to your smartphone, tablet, or notebook computer. The future may be here sooner than you think.

And I saw a tweet from Phil yesterday in response to someone who complained about the show airing on Friday night and wishing it would return to Sundays. Phil used shorthand to suggest they DVR the show on Friday, and watch on Sundays, then. Which explains more than anything else I've seen exactly why CBS went this route in the first place. They know that most TAR viewers are able to record and time shift, and CBS believes that the show is better off with time shifting to give its viewers the whole weekend to view rather than wait until Sunday nights, especially if the viewers have weekday/weeknight schedules that make it more inconvenient.

Bottom line -- I'm pretty sure TAR 27 and 28 are givens, and I suspect some of us oldtimers would hear something to respond to if that were not to be the case. It happened before (summer of 2003) so I believe that if need be we'd hear about it.
Anyone have any idea where are they going on the final leg?

I guess somewhere very random like Easter Island, Chile or Montreal, Canada?

Tel Aviv, Israel was the location of the Finish Line, but the whole leg was actually in Buenos Aires!! That was complete nonsense!!!

My ranking

1. Clark Beckham
Loved the vulnerability and pain in the emotion he brought to the stage. Plus his crazy vocals, of course!

2. Nick Fradiani
I'm stating to really love this guy and I absolutely agree with Harry when he said that Nick's strength is his humility. He is really very attractive but he doesn't simply take comfort in that. Instead, we see him getting more and more comfortable on stage, getting better and better week after week. He reminds me a little of Kris Allen and I won't be surprised if he does go all the way.

3. Jax
I loved the beginning and the end when it was chilling and quiet with just her voice and the piano. Beautiful. She did get lost in the middle though, with all the noise around her. I'm waiting for her to really own a moment on stage soon.

4. Tyanna Jones
She's back! Solid vocals and performance.

5. Quentin Alexander
Decent but not fantastic for me. I do love his uniqueness though.

6. Joey Cook
I didn't think the song was suitable for her. It failed to show her artistry.

7. Qaasim Middleton
It was decent I guess. But I wasn't jumping out of my seat.

8. Rayvon Owen
Man... I thought he would be going home and after hearing his performance, I still didn't think he should have stayed over Adanna. His performance each week is just good, but there's nothing special and emotional about it so it just pales in comparison with the others'.

9. Daniel Seavey
If he were performing on his own, it wouldn't be a bad performance. But... It was up against people who are so much more experienced than him. But I guess he's gonna stick around a few more weeks.

And so we lose girls again... 6 guys and 3 girls now. :( I'm hoping that Rayvon or Daniel leaves, but I have a feeling it might be a surprise elimination this week. Maybe one of the girls but I pray not...
Just noticed the really extravagant route for this season!  :colors
We have our final three!!

Oh no. I really like this season F4 team and kinda hope the producer do the F4 TBC like TAR25, but oh well it was very sad that someone else was eliminated because any elimination at this F4 was a tragic.

 :welcome: Absolute, and thanks!
I agree that overall viewers are far less important than before. From what I understand, the DVR 3-7 days and the SPONSORS are what matter more right now.
I have no worries about 27, and few about 28. Let's hope we get confirmation soon!
I don't like Kevin so I'm annoyed he won veto. Brittnee/Sindy with an S to stay safe please !
