I'm so excited. I had a really good feeling about this, 18-49 ratings are what the networks care about the most and TAR is performing quite well, especially after factoring in DVR ratings, in a time slot that CBS has had a lot of problems with.

Thank goodness! Every year at renewal time I get more worried for this show with the declining viewership and the not winning awards

We are BACK  :conf: :conf: :conf:

That's great news for TAR's new trend in one-cycle renewal per TV season.

It is not a trend if its only happened once so far.  :groan:

Historically, CBS has greenlit TAR one cycle at a time, even when there has been 2 or 3 cycles aired within a given television year. We may have to wait until upfronts day this next week to get more clarity as to scheduling.

To answer those equstions in the last few posts.

ATM, we don't know when CBS plans to air cycle 30, so we don't know if it will just be one cycle for 2017-18 or two. We also don't know yet if CBS plans to use TAR 30 as a designated bench warmer as it did this season in the fall, and the spring, or whether they are committing to a definite time slot on their schedule (fall, winter, spring) or not. We may get clarity on some of this next week at the upfronts, and then we'll have a better idea of what to expect for 2017-18. And for the record CBS has always committed to greenlight one cycle at a time, even in those years we got two cycles.

Great to see a renewal!

I wonder if Season 30 will be a season with returning teams, as they usually do this about every 6 seasons, and the last one was Season 24.

“Amazing Race,” which has nabbed 15 Emmy Awards over the years, hails from Jerry Bruckheimer Television. “Race” also benefits from a big lift in L7 ratings, averaging 6.5 million viewers and 1.5 in adults 18-49 this season. The show has had a tour of CBS’ schedule since its 2001 debut. This season it has held down the Thursday 10 p.m. slot.

I hope for an All Stars!

I'm really against the idea of this.  If they use the format they've used for past All Stars (disregarding threepeats  :res:  ) they'll only use teams from 25 - 29, and there's NOWHERE NEAR enough teams in those seasons to justify a decent All Star race.  I tend to totally ignore 27 & 28, coz they were both rubbish, and only had about 2 / 3 teams that were good, most of which aren't even All Star calibre. 
Think of it like this - TAR 30: All Stars - Justin & Diana, Tyler & Korey, Brody & Kurt, Tanner & Josh..... OH DEAR GOD, NO!!!!  :groan:  :iok

Even glam teams from 25 & 26 wouldn't salvage such a dire season.  :escape

Of course, having said this, if they were to bring back Dustin & Kandice, Brooke & Clare, Charla & Mirna, Nicky & Kim, Kym & Alli, Pam & Winnie then yea, let them fire on all cylinders with the idea.  :funny:

My secondary reason for hoping for renewal each year, too, is that if the American original is cancelled, presumably the worldwide editions still in production, which I also enjoy, (China, Asia(?), Israel, Canada) go with it due to the legal/franchising connections.

I think it is very possible that the international editions will outlive the American original.

As for TAR30, the most interesting questions are about cast, gimmick and how low the budget can go (or how much subsidies can they get from local tourism boards lol)

Unfortunately it does seem we could be filler yet again for midseason, but fingers crossed. If anything, a later start in a favorable timeslot with solid numbers will ensure us 31 better than an earlier start in an unfavorable timeslot.

Preliminary news from the CBS UPFRONTS does not show us on the schedule...looking like a midseason replacement.
