I know this happened as recently as leg 9 of TAR29, but I can't remember.
Is it written in the task infromation for teams that there is a limited number of stations for a detour? Or do they just find that out once on location?

I think they find out once they see it on the clue? Not too sure, but that's how I understand it when I see it happens.

Hey, have we as a community ever figured out where the "Surf Rescue" task in the TAR20 finale took place? After all these years, it's still listed on most sites as just "Beach"

When is the soonest after a season is filmed that it can air (i.e. how long does it take to edit a season for broadcasting)?

I believe it was Season 6? Just 2 months and 4 days after the final leg, they begin to air

Off the top of my head, I know TAR14 had none.

Pretty sure about 27, 26, 24, 23, 22, 21, 20, 16, 14, 13, 12, 9, 8 but that shouldn't count, 6, 5, and 2.

Maybe 4 and 7 as well?

I think 10 too. Korean Air would've connected through Seoul and United would've connected through SFO.

To add a little on this: that season and the following season had to be edited on the fly as the season was being filmed, as CBS originally announced an even earlier premiere date, but had to delay it in order to place TAR on a weeknight, IIRC. It had originally been announced for a Saturday slot. I think The Futon Critic show page for the episodes would show this.
That was an unusual period, as three seasons were aired almost literally back-to-back-to-back in a period of eight or nine months or so.

Season 5 ended on September 21st, 2004; season 6 began airing on November 16th,2004  it ended on February 8th, 2005 (with a record 15 episodes), Season 7 began airing on March 1st, 2005 and concluded on May 10th, 2005: again with 15 episodes. The site does not contain any episode dates prior to 5.04 at the beginning of August 2004.

Saturday, oh wow. TAR would have been a scheduling record-setter if that happened. It has been everywhere from Monday to Sunday. Has the show ever aired episodes on Saturday including any rare reruns?

Yeah, I remember that. TAR 6 was planned to air on Saturdays, but CBS never intended to air it and was soon delayed in few weeks. The big reason as Clubhouse was having low ratings in the first five episodes, TAR 6 placed in the Tuesday time slot.
My posts are fine, so please be careful.

Does anyone understand what happened to Eric and Danielle in Johannesburg.

They were given tickets for the Air Malawi flight and were then kicked off to what I presume was an overbooked flight. What confuses me is when they say "I cant believe it actually happened, Im still waiting for someone to run after us and tell us to stop". Like did they know they shouldn't be there?

If Head-to-head were introduced earlier for TAR US, I thought Dave & Connor would likely to be booted sooner because Dave thought "He is Old"

When teams get a Detour clue, I know that they have a paper with extra information about the task (unless it's a blind Detour).
But is all the info relevant to the task given there? Or might the teams arrive to the task's location to find out there is an Hours of Operation, a limited number of teams eligible to complete it, or something of the like?

I can easily think of an example for these kinds of situations,  but I don't know whether they are alwas true

Hours of operation:  Season 3 leg 7 (Austria), Season 5 leg 5 (Egypt)
Limited number of teams:  Season 10 leg 10 (Morocco)
