I think there are 12 episodes. CBS is just showing that there is a 2 hour episode on 1/24

Why would there only be 11 episodes? Isn't it still 12 Legs? The schedule fits for a February 21 finale.

Also, President Trump's State of the Union address is Tuesday, January 30 so no affect on TAR.

I was expecting The Amazing Race to premiere in April/May again. Maybe CBS is not done with TAR just yet...

You are overlooking the one hour episode on the 31st. Thatís the 12th hour. See my previous post.

No, I didn't say there would be 11 episodes. I was asking why anyone would think there would only be 11 episodes, referring to georgia saying there would be 11, skipping January 31st.

Damn, I have mixed feelings. :lol:
I'm really excited to see TAR back on air so soon, but I'm not a fan of the double episodes. I mean, it's cool that I'll get to see more episodes quicker :lol: But I don't know if this is a good sign.

I hope that they're just testing out things, like someone here said. The fact that it's airing at a new time IS good.

I think the new timeslot will bode well for TAR. Usually there is not much to compete with during the winter season in terms of other shows and really the only thing that may draw away viewership is the Olympics. I think an 8pm timeslot works well as a family friendly show to start and I don't think pushing it back will have too much of an influence since Big Brother, another reality TV show, is pushing it back. I also think putting it in Survivor's timeslot to start with will also help.

I don't really see the double episodes as a way of burning off TAR, I just see this as an experimentation as a winter/midseason show, but when the midseason is 8 weeks, you have to find 4 extra hours somewhere.

Hunted had the same time slot and decreased in viewers right through the finale....

Hopefully TAR doesn't suffer the same fate.
Hunted deserved the declining numbers over the course of its run. Nice premise, but a highly flawed and poor execution of the concept. Not really a basis for comparison.

I'm pretty sure the execution of Hunted as a concept or its quality has nothing to do with its numbers lol.

Please stay on topic. This thread is for TAR not Hunted except as scheduling relates.

Besides the usual ABC comedies, we also get to go against Fox's revival of the X-Files. So there will be competition. But it's still better than being stuck in a 10 pm slot.

I'm a little bit confused with the length of the season. This seems to be the shortest run of all US Amazing Race's. Can someone walk me through, is this good for the ratings? Why are there an abundance of double episodes? I know nothing how the US Ratings go. I just want TAR to go back to the glory days. 8pm slot though is good for me, I think.

It is a full season with 12 legs. Just in a much shorter time interval.

They are just putting it in as Olympic counter programming I think.


We filled a need in the schedule for 29. They had nothing else to place there and we rocked it. They need something against the Olympics and something to go with BB.

Since there is a BB team on 30 going in a scheduling match up with BB could be very good for TAR ratings and CBS ratings if we can retain the BB peeps.

It is actually brilliant marketing.

AND.... CBS likes to have a TAR season in the can ready to go. :tup:

Could this mean a very early NEW season filming?? Very possibly!

I think it is a WIN-WIN all around.  :conf:

I agree. I don't really see the downside. A Wednesday primetime slot? That's usually for  Survivor, a similar show, should be great! Much better than stupid Sundays.

Also, there is nothing on in January. It's exciting to get something new to watch, especially a great show like TAR. And yes it pairs with BB and going against the Olympics (which I personally am very sad about because I like to devote all my time to it).

Overall it seems good news and I'm SO EXCITED we get to see it so soon!

I love the Olympics!

So...I cannot find a full listing yet. Other than the premiere date CBS has not yet posted.

Here's what looks like it could be right. Based on Buddy TV's quote that it moves to TWO hours Feb 7.

Deadline states Jan 24th is 2 hours. If that is correct then if we have a 11 episode series we need to skip a week somewhere. If we get 12 episodes, then whoohoo!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


ONE HOUR:

Jan 3  (Wed) 8-9PM PREMIERE
Jan 10 (Wed) 8-9 PM
Jan 17 (Wed) 8-9 PM

TWO HOUR:
Jan 24 (Wed) 8-10 PM
Jan 31 ?skipped or no?
Feb 7   (Wed) 9-11 PM
Feb 14 (Wed) 9-11 PM
Feb 21  (Wed) 9-11 PM FINALE

And this also works well with the countries that have two legs...

sorry but NO spoilers even locations in non spoiler threads. Removed location info. :(

Word.

Trying to figure out the mindset these days of the CBS honchos aside from Les Moonves is hard. The execs that helped get TAR on the air and keep it going are no longer there. So that helps explain some of the scheduling mindset.

When do you think we will see our first commercial for it? I'm thinking definitely during the survivor finale since it's in that timeslot but maybe before?

Thoughts?
