It was also higher than any episode that aired on a Friday (season 25-28). So this is the highest rating since at least season 24. Great news!!

Modern family and the premiere of 911 did have higher 18-49 ratings which is important,  but TAR shockingly beat the return of the X files on fox (1.6 vs 1.4), as well as the ABC sitcoms and the blacklist. It nearly doubled the other CBS dramas on the evening. This is undoubtedly a huge win. Hopefully it maintains relatively close to this level and CBS would have no choice but to renew it, and maybe even consider multiple cycles again.

Yeah, it can't be understated how huge that 1.6 live number is. It's a big number in this day for any show. But especially huge for TAR. The TAR26 premiere that aired after Survivor on Wednesday got a 1.5 and 6.16 million viewers.

Those are good! The timeslot is half of TAR's battle.

Also, I've always said tv should start ASAP after the holidays. People are at home, staying out of the cold. Give them something to watch!

Well sure, Jody fans are probably a significant portion of that, but a few of the other teams bring a pre-established fan base, too. And with it being on a much better night of the week.

But sure. Thanks for the much-needed boost, Jody fans!

Time slot definitely is a factor.. but why did they get that time slot? Because they knew they could parlay the Jess and Cody/Big brother fan base into more viewers... so even just getting the time slot was thanks to them.

And the more advertising... like 80% of CBSí promotion has been of Jess and Cody.. they even had a CBS social employee with them all last night filming them watching the episode... and team Indy was there as well and they didnít have any cbs rep with them ...

Here's what I think. The Hour first, plus the fact that school was still out.

That it was an open start with a batch of people wanting to watch themselves.

The fan base of EACH team with some celebrity.

Am sure Jody's fan base helped. But not the only factor in play.

I just wanted to chime in that the timeslot is a much more reasonable explanation for the boost in viewers. I wouldn't argue that Jessica & Cody brought in the most viewers out of all the teams, but let's not spin everything to their glory. :cmaslol

I'd argue that TAR28 had at least 3 teams with similarly sized (if not bigger), similarly dedicated fanbases as Jody who were also similarly uninterested in TAR before their team was cast. Yet there was a negligible impact on viewership.

The existing fanbases of these pseudo-celebrity teams together can certainly account for some new or returning viewers. But as has been pointed out, the Wednesday timeslot and premiering in this holiday-like week are much bigger factors for such a sizeable jump.

As huge as these premiere numbers are (and whatever the next week of DVR viewing might bring), I'll echo Peach saying that it will be interesting to see how next week goes. And the following weeks. This big premiere definitely gives TAR a much bigger cushion, especially as it heads toward the double episodes and then against the Olympics.

Agree time slot is a big deal... but CBS was parlaying the Jody fan base and counting on them to watch... once celeb big bro starts we are following it... all about capturing the big brother audience

Or also, CBS needed a ready-to-go benchwarmer (which CBB also is) to fill the slot through the Olympics. And they've usually kept Survivor's slot warm with a reality/unscripted show as well.

Keeps getting BETTER!

Quote
The Amazing Race spent last spring on the bubble, but the Emmy-winning reality veteran proved its worth last night. The 3oth season premiere of the globe-trotting competition (1.6) delivered its largest premiere audience and best key demos delivery since Cycle 23 on September 29, 2013. CBSí scheduling decision to slot Amazing Race as a bridge between the two cycles of Survivor is paying off. The show recently aired on Thursday and Friday following a long Sunday run. Compared to the Season 29 premiere on a Thursday, The Amazing Race last night was up 70% in viewers and 78% in the demo and was Wednesdayís No. 1 program in total viewers.

Succeeding Amazing Race seasons should have a team or teams with a huge following or fanbase mix that with a regular cast. The timeslot is also good at this time making it a more family-timeslot. Hoping that the Race continues on with higher ratings for both viewership and dvr's

Ok so I see people continue to repeat this fallacy that itís the time slot.. or itís the other racers who are more widely known. Let me break this down for you folks simply..

1. Time Slot: Amazing Race would not have this time slot of not for Jess and Cody. Itís obvious enough from comments Phil and Cody have made, as well as the slotting of TAR after Celeb B.B. once it starts. Jess and Cody had maybe the biggest % of the fan base since Dr Will and Janelle way back over a decade ago, so itís not crazy that theyíre trying to capture this audience.

2. This leads to the next point, yes Shawn Marion, Joey Chestnut, or even Alex Rossi are more nationally/globally known... and that means nothing. Why? Because their fans arenít necessarily 1. Hyper obsessed with following their every move 2. The target market of tv viewers who would watch this type of show.

To further prove this point... if you take a look at the intro videos on Amazing Raceís YouTube channel you will see Jess and Codyís has over 10x the views of any other team, which destroys the argument that the others who are more known are why people are watching... to go further, Jess and Codyís video is the most watched video on TARía YouTube channel... EVER. 3 times more views than the nearest which was 4 years ago.

So. I hope that settles this petty debate and we can now enjoy the show and the fabulous ratings, and likely renewal thanks to Jess and Cody and their fan base. #yourewelcome

Only a pareto of the ratings week over week could indicate a BB couple impact, and if it is sustained.  It's my understanding that it takes only one minute of viewing to be captured in ratings.  So a viewer could have watched the start or the middle or the end, be counted as a viewer and then click on to something else. Too many variables to accurately measure. 

It's one of those instances when it's just best to remember the sun will rise each morning regardless.  And we want the sun to rise on TAR for many more seasons!

I think most everyone was fine with settling it before your post?

Jess and Cody are a big factor in the ratings- I don't think anyone is denying that.  Furthermore, I think you've incorrectly inferred what others were saying- not that others had more fans than Jess and Cody, but that they had large fan bases TOO.

In regards to Jess and Cody being THE reason TAR got that time slot: their inclusion on the race probably added to the pitch to put it there, but to say that they were the only reason we're there is completely unfounded, and can't really be proven unless someone from the governing body that dictates the schedule directly says so.  Even still, we can't go back in time and remove them to see if removing that factor would've changed the scheduling decision.

I donít think it is a coincidence that the current time slot is TARís original time slot. CBS now views that time as their best time slot for reality tv on CBS, and the sheer growth for TAR back in its original time slot is in and of itself proof of that.
Interesting note for the Jody fans, JSYK. Thereís a YT video up that they made after returning from filming where they primarily discuss how and what they packed. While Jess confirms she only had time to watch the three most immediate seasons in that week before they left, Cody mentions that he and his family watch the first several seasons of TAR at the time. So he was familiar with the original rules, but packing never changed and that they did well. Point being, Cody was on of those original TARfans Who watch those early seasons in this very time slot. Maybe part of the point here was CBS should have left TAR in this time slot to begin with.

I believe the official timeframe is 6 minutes of uninterrupted viewing to be included in the ratings.

It's silly we have to keep arguing on what caused the ratings uptick, instead of just agreeing it was a combination of all of the above. The fact remains that January is the ideal time for tv shows, as nearly all shows on the broadcast networks saw season highs last week. People are indoors watching tv in January, much less so in april-june. And the 8 pm slot is a huge help, compared to last year's awful time slot. And yes, it's likely the Big brother team had an effect as well. Let's all just be happy it showed some ratings growth, something that few shows ever get to experience once the downward slide starts.

Slight correction, TAR was tied for 11th in terms of 18-49 rating (it has slightly less 18-49 viewers that Ghosted which puts it at 12th in terms of viewers) and 17th in terms of overall viewers for the week.

http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/weekly-ratings/week-15-broadcast-top-25-and-network-rankings-jan-1-7-2018/

However, to put that in perspective, the last time TAR had both weekly rankings that high (to my knowledge) was the Berlin episode of TAR 22 (18-49: 10th, overall: 14th).  :cmas9

CBS PRESS:

01.04.2018

ďTHE AMAZING RACEĒ DASHES TO LARGEST PREMIERE AUDIENCE SINCE SEPTEMBER 2013


30TH SEASON PREMIERE UP WHOPPING +70% IN VIEWERS,

+62% IN A25-54 AND +78% IN A18-49 FROM LAST SEASON



On a heavily competitive night with several premieres, the 30th season premiere of THE AMAZING RACE returned with its largest premiere audience and best key demos delivery since THE AMAZING RACE 23 on Sept. 29, 2013. Compared to the season 29 premiere on March 30, 2017, THE AMAZING RACE is up in viewers (+70%, 7.31 mil from 4.30 mil), A25-54 (+62%, 2.1 from 1.3) and A18-49 (+78%, 1.6 from 0.9), winning the 8PM hour in these measures. THE AMAZING RACE was Wednesday's #1 program in viewers.

While I realize that Jody fans all over the world would like to attribute the high ratings to Jody, I'm more inclined to think the great ratings are due to the new time slot.  As inconceivable as it is for Jody fans to comprehend, there are many of us out there that do NOT like Jody (for me it would be Jessica) but will continue to watch TAR.  So yes, while I have never missed an episode of TAR in 29 seasons, I am watching this season and it has absolutely zilch to do with Jody. TBH, my TAR viewing experience would be enhanced if Jessica wasn't on the show.

Does anyone think that CBS will put TAR back on twice a year if their ratings hold up?

If the ratings of the premiere episode keep steady, I would have high hopes for that!

Besides, it's airing so early this year that there's plenty of time to shoot/edit a season for Autumn.

Those TAR27 figures can't be right, they inadvertently used 29's numbers. It was on Friday and I think may have gotten a 1.1(ish).

I believe the press release said TAR 29.

As things are, it would be difficult  The only way would be to compress some Survivor episodes as two hours in that time slot and rotate the two. CBS has never had a stable time slot for TAR other than this one, and they simply donít have a clue of what else would work long-term.

The sports overruns in both spring and fall wrecked havoc for families wanting to watch the show or for recording the show for later viewing as well. As itís turning out, CBS is still having that problem, and also having itís Sunday scheduling deal with cable and premium cable airing new seasons of their hit shows in that Sunday night time slot as well.

NFL overruns, more often than not, actually helped TAR quite a bit, boosting TAR with a great lead in and maybe even artificially keeping TAR's  numbers higher than they might have been otherwise.

Some weeks yes, other weeks not so much. But in the spring, the impact was more negative given that CBS for most of that period aired two weeks of March Madness, the Masters, and some other golf tournaments that ran way over...I can recall a few that were over an hour, and many viewers who DVRed the show got 60 Minutes and no TAR. Not to mention weeks being skipped because of special events both in the fall and spring. Wednesdayís has far fewer such problems over the earlier seasons.

Amazing Race Metrics for Episode 1 & 2.  Special thanks to The Rabbi for the correction earlier.  My hope is for TAR30 to sustain an overall increase to 18-48 group demographics and viewers (mil).  Hopefully, this will again validate TAR's bench strength in the CBS line-up and result in more seasons.

Final ratings are in and the demo stayed at 1.4 but the viewers went up a little bit below 7 million. Still good ratings as The Amazing Race was the #1 show of the night in viewers

Love how the Ratings are going. I hope this is the road for more seasons and the return of double seasons a year. I think producers must note that a January start to a new season must be on the cards for future seasons + retain the timeslot.

Nah no need for double season two, would love to, but since TAR 29 now is  considered as the best season ever on TAR history thanks to single season a year, i prefer single season.

I think what El means is that production can create better races when they're focused on creating only one a year, as opposed to trying to build two each year.

I still think the quality of the races in 2-race years are still strong enough to warrant them returning to that set up.

Especially if CBS pushes for it- that might give production more money, availability to do more/have more on future races.

TAR 29 was built and filmed as a part of a two season cycle.

It was not a standalone

Time slot may have a lot to do about the ratings. I canít even begin to count the number of times Iíve read complaints about the different time slots TAR has endured since it was last on Wednesdayís, and how the particular time slot inconveniences viewers lives or family-time viewing.

Quality of the season hasnít been a factor in a time slot with the sole exception of TAR 8, which had several things that worked against it, but not the casting in general, IMHO.

6.8 million viewers, but to answer your other question, viewers are not important. Commercial ad rates are set based on the 18-49 rating, which is the 1.5 number I brought over. Viewers are purely for bragging rights among networks (such as the press releases that are posted), but doesn't really factor into anything.

This is from last week's episode (episode 2) but in the weekly ratings, TAR was tied for 17th in 18-49 viewers and 21st in overall viewers. Aside from football, TAR was CBS's 5th highest rated show of the week for 18-49 viewers. Fantastic!

This is what TV Line included in its article on Wednesdayís overnights just now:


Quote
CBS | The Amazing Race (6.8 mil/1.5) drew Wednesdayís biggest audience while ticking up in the demo. SEAL Team (6.6 mil/1.1) rose two tenths, Criminal Minds (5.6 mil/1.0) was flat.

I just think this bodes well for TAR keeping the time slot going forward. Weíll see what the later time does to this in February.

You are correct, but none of those are reflected in the 6.8 million figure that watched last night, which is why I said the overnight viewers rating is fairly meaningless. Streaming the show on cbs all access is the best way to support the show, since that is easily trackable by CBS. They only get your cable view if you are a Nielsen house. In the overnight rating that is reported every Thursday morning, only the 18-49 number matters.

Ease of getting the data isn't really the issue. Companies could no doubt monitor what we watch with today's technology. Privacy laws are the real culprit. Nielsen homes sign away their privacy rights, which is why they estimate for all homes based on Nielsen houses. I'm not that familiar with Tivo's processes to say if they are able to share their data like that though, so maybe.

Privacy laws generally apply to government and commercial provisions are governed by contract. TiVo and other providers can and do have announced policies that permits aggregation of data such as viewing audiences for shows and networks they carry. Most people may have opted out of privacy constraints without realizing it.
