Well... let's not get ahead of ourselves. TAR29 is merely being used as a filler since Training Day tanked. Plus, both Training Day and TAR are Jerry Bruckheimer productions, so that likely played a part in the decision.  As well as CBS not having anything else to fill the valuable Thursday 10pm slot with for the rest of the season.  TAR29 will still need to do better than it's been doing on Fridays and just because it's on Thursday doesn't guarantee that.  TAR still needs to do a lot of work, needs some luck and maybe even a miracle, tbh.

Since they are giving TAR a new day-it shows some faith.

They could've given it a Friday or Saturday slot, but noooo THURSDAY!

10PM is not great though...

I think this is actually a good move for us. It shows some confidence in the show from CBS. CBS has stuggled with the Thursday at 10 PM slot occupants not only this season, but for a while, so I think that gives TAR a little wiggle room to work with. I don't think we'll do any worse than we would have done on Fridays, and who knows, this could be the best thing that's happened for the series in a while and this could end up as our permanent slot.

Do you think the bar for Thursday at 10 is a lot higher than Friday at 8?

Not Getting carried away or anything as in all honesty still think this probable is the final season but before this i had ZERO hope that it would return this atleast gives alittle bit of hope

No more 2-hr premiere probably means we have a massive chaotic leg 1  :groan:
Can it be a single episode of contestant introduction instead of leg 1?

To be honest, a premiere of only contestant introduction would confuse people and turn viewers away. There has to be at least some racing imo.
So perhaps include the starting line task + race to the airport in that hour as well.

Also, I'm excited about TAR 29! Let's see how it turns out!
You are the last team to arrive.
This is a Philmination leg, so I'm sorry to tell you that you have been Philiminated from the race.

Maybe the 2-hour premiere was really the first 2 Legs, normal episodes.  And now with the change, they'll only show the first Leg, first episode.

Anyway, I don't think this really changes what CBS thinks of TAR.  It's just up to TAR to attract a bigger audience.  Thursday at 10pm provides an opportunity to do that, but not a guarantee.

100 percent this. Just means that the original 2 hour premiere was 2 episodes back to back, and now we6only get one.

I think its a slightly more promising sign, but we still have to perform well

Just a reminder:
TAR 6 was also moved up by weeks to replace a failing show (Viva Laughlin after 2 episodes) back in 2004 (late November on Saturdays to mind-October on Tuesdays, IIRC).

TAR 9 premiered and aired a half-season in the 10pm timeslot (post Super Bowl and then concern about content, IIRC) in 2006 before returning to a earlier weeknight 8pm timeslot for the remainder of that seasons, and several seasons thereafter.

TAR's scheduling issue came because CBS half-expected one of its new fall series to run into trouble, but none of them did. Training Day was in ratings trouble from what was described in the Deadline Hollywood article from the time it premiered, so even if Bill Paxton hadn't died unexpectedly, renewal was unlikely, hence that show's move to Saturdays to burn off its remaining episodes.

But for the NCAA Tournament these next two weeks, TAR might have been moved up to next week (exactly what happened with season six after Viva Laughlin was cancelled way back when.) Expect of lot of TAR promos from now until March 30 or even ongoing since most folks were aware of the late April scheduling.

With the new timeslot and news of a potential writers strike (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/hollywood-on-edge-as-possibility-of-another-writers-strike-looms-2017-03-05), I am somewhat hopful that TAR can get it's mojo back and get renewed for TAR30 and beyond.

Did a quick check of the online TV Guide to see what competition TAR is up against on the new night.  Despite the not-so-optimal time slot, Thursdays looks like a "wasteland" for the other networks.  Maybe they have a chance going up against these posers:

Thursdays @10PM

FOX - (local news)
NBC - The Blacklist: Redemption
ABC - The Catch
FX   - Baskets
USA - Colony
Bravo - Real Housewives of Atlanta
E!   - Keeping Up With The Kardashians
SHO - Homeland

Still, this all sounds a bit rushed.....  but beggars can't be choosers...  }:>

Cable shouldn't be a concern :tup:

Our only real competition will be NBC and ABC!

YAY! SO happy that it airs sooner!

However, not too happy about the 10pm slot, but I guess it is better than airing on All Access!

Can't wait for this season!
I love reality TV shows
