The Amazing Race NOW premieres Wednesday April 17th at 9pm after Survivor!

Does this mean it qualifies for the 2019 emmys now?

I just saw this too lol. Million Dollar Mile got moved to Saturdays. That was a flop.

It did a 0.9 and then a 0.8. The World's Best did around a 0.6 and that didn't get pulled. Weird. lol

World's Best had Super Bowl promotion. Million Dollar Mile lost over half of Survivor's viewers both weeks.

TAR is back early.  :conf:  :cheer:

Nice! So BOTH of CBS's new reality attempts flopped.

I think this opens the door to have 32 air in the summer as well. Now 31 can be over by the end of June and they can keep right on with 32 before the fall shows return.

Not only was Million Dollar Mile moved to Saturday's, it's not even being resumed until May 4th. RIP. LeBron and Tim Tebow tried.

The positive about having to wait 10 months between filming and airing is that I forgot half the boot list lol. I remember the first few of boots and the final 4, but between that, bloop.

Yeah. It was more of a save face kind of move by CBS. Pulling a show that premiered after the Super Bowl would be a huge embarrassment. Also a little bit of a disappointment for James Corden who CBS definitely eyes as a major face for the network moving forward.

Except for the fact that airing a regular-length episode every week still means that the finale would be on Independence Eve.

Technically, three if you include Hunted which CBS obviously wanted to have replace TAR as well.

If anything, TAR31 doing well may open the door for TAR32 to air in the Fall. Having back-to-back seasons like that would be too much and CBS, obviously wanting to maximize any profit, would save TAR for the more lucrative Fall slot than in the summer.

Precisely, why rush to air 32 in August when it can wait until September?

Yeah, because CBS has never aired 2 hour episodes or finales before. It would be extremely easy to accomplish and I was simply pointing out the possibility. Would rather it air in the fall though.

Then it should've been mentioned from the get-go rather than wording it oddly.

For what it's worth, Chicago Fire and Modern Family/Single Parents will be repeats on NBC and ABC on April 17. New eps on FOX and the CW.

I assume TAR takes a week off for the Survivor finale in May?

Yes. That I see on Futon Critic that TAR will have a break for May 15 to make room for Survivor finale.

I would also assume (dangerous, I know) that TAR would move to the 8pm hour as well on the 22nd.

With the week off for Survivor, TAR will have exactly six episodes aired before May 31, just making it eligible for the Emmys. That is assuming all one-hour/one episode a week.

Only those six episodes will be eligible for consideration. The (6?) episodes that will air after May 31 won't be eligible.

Yep. I wouldn't be surprised if CBS moves TAR to 8pm after Survivor ends and expands to 2 hours. CBS makes $117K for a 30-Second Ad so they probably want the $$ instead of airing repeats during the summer.

Seems akin to a fixture from the Sunday era, i.e. the mid-season two-week break for the Country Music Awards.

Not directly related to the airing of 31, as we'll be midway through the season, but about the airing of 32, and possibly filming of cycle 33.

The CBS Upfronts for ad buyers is slated for 05/15 afternoon:

In a sense the imminent premiere is an improvement re:the upfront. Under the earlier premiere date, season 31 would have still been a week in the future.
