Very nitpicky theschnauzers, but it was actually season 12 that came in for the ill-fated Viva Laughlin. Season 6 was slated for Saturdays but replaced the dreaded 'Clubhouse.' on Tuesdays at 9. Season 9 started Tuesdays at 10, and due to very lackluster ratings, moved to Wednesdays at 8 halfway through the season. That is what concerns me most, that we've already been tried at 10 pm once and quickly had to move.

However, if the prior poster is correct and there could be a writers strike looming, that absolutely helps our chances. The last strike was in 2008, and CBS was really scrambling. That year they had inexplicably ordered only one TAR season (season 12), so they had no more seasons to air during the strike. They ended up bringing Big Brother back early for a winter run to fill 3 hours a week.

The time won't be a problem for me... I'm a night owl. But one of my co-workers that loves the show goes to bed before 10:00 since she gets up at 4:00 to be at work at 5:30.  She will DVR it though so will still watch it later.

RATINGS are going to be crucial for this season. May well determine whether we get a single or a two season renewal.

SO WATCH LIVE. DVR IT> Watch the DVR multiple times within the first 24 hours. Just play it background if you must.

Be POSITIVE with your comments. Use #AmazingRace hashtags on Twitter. Post often and retweet all the other #AmazingRace you see. This all counts.

We have a chance to ensure TAR's future. Don't blow it with negativity.

Ratings wait-what is considered good?
Much higher than Training Day or much higher than Friday?

Also, 1 or 2 seems much better than 0 or 1

This makes me so excited! I can't even put it in words!

Something about it being back on a weekday just makes it feel like a real show again.

J no longer subscribe to cable, but will add CBS All Access to watch on my devices, and get my usual ITunes download backup. I may need to pull out an digital antenna for the first episode, as I won't set up the app until after the 3rd of the month. (taking into account any free trial period so I'm not billed until after the 3rd.)

With the 1-hour episode premiere, I guess they'll probably be editing Leg 1 to 2 parts. With the season's format, it'll be really hard to cut corners on leg 1. Guess on part 1 they could end with teams boarding or arriving on first destination.

So glad that this is happening later this month, not two months ago. With the US going into DST, I'm back to being only 1 hour apart from the East Coast. So I'll get to watch this live, especially if I plan to contribute with some additional insights from Leg 2. If this was during Oct~Nov, that would've been impossible, with the 3 hour difference.

For those who were wondering about whether the April plan for two hours was one episode or two, here's what I captured from the show schedule page for TAR at The Futon Critic with the revised March 30 premiere.

Yeah knew it.

Really didn't know why people thought it would actually be 2 hours for the first leg. Thanks for clearing it up!

Yeah I read that somewhere else and thought it was some kind of mistake.
Interesting, maybe strange decision. But maybe if it does well on Thursdays, they'll keep it there.

The STL article is definitely wrong. Prove that sources aren't right and I don't trust with the newspaper source.
My posts are fine, so please be careful.

Sounds like a lot of confusion regarding the Thursday/Friday lineups.  Maybe this article from the Orlando Sentinel will muddy up the waters even more.

http://www.orlandosentinel.com/entertainment/tv/tv-guy/os-et-amazing-race-returns-march-30-story.html

Apparently, Undercover Boss will take over TAR's Friday 8PM slot April 28.  So  that slot could be available if Undercover Boss does not materialize.  Or maybe the St. Louis article was only half right.  Either way, both Thursdays and Fridays schedule will change soon.

Interesting update on The Futon Critic's TAR listings. All Thursday airings, but two-hour episodes on April 20 AND May 18.
http://thefutoncritic.com/showatch/amazing-race/listings/

3/30/17 Episode 1
4/6/17 Episode 2
4/13/17 Episode 3
4/20/17 Episodes 4 & 5 (starts at 9:01pm)
4/27/17 Episode 6
5/4/17 Episode 7
5/11/17 Episode 8
5/18/17 Episodse 9 & 10 (9:01pm)

That very much screams a burn off.  At the same time, it'll give TAR 7 weeks to prove itself before CBS' May Upfronts (which will be held on Wednesday, May 17 this year).

GAAAHHH, this is far too confusing for me!

Why can't CBS just schedule TAR on Thursdays! It would save a lot of hassle...

You may very well be right about the "burn off", but there may be another explanation.  Legs 9 & 10 are both in
Show content
Vietnam
, so back-to-back showings makes sense.  Legs 4 & 5 however are a different story,
Show content
as one is in Tanzania and the other in Norway
, so there goes that theory.  Should have been 3 & 4.  So maybe they just want to finish before Memorial Day, which require legs 11 & 12 to be a back-to-back showing as well, but Futon Critic does not show that info yet.  Looks fishy to me!   }:>
