CBS Officially Orders 20th Season of The Amazing Race
CBS has officially ordered a 20th season of The Amazing Race to air in Spring 2012. Though a 20th season is not a surprise, CBS not ordering 20 when they ordered season 19 a few months ago still baffles. Only Mr. Chenbot knows why.
But the confirmation is still awesome news and ensures two more seasons of TAR at the very least. But should we make anything out of the press release not mentioning TAR20 will air on Sundays?
Here is the CBS press release:
Season 20 Will Air in Spring 2012
THE AMAZING RACE concluded its 18th installment, “Unfinished Business,” on May 8, 2011, which featured former fan favorites returning for a second shot at the one million dollar prize. During the season finale, sisters LaKisha Hoffman and Jennifer Hoffman narrowly ousted Herb Lang and Nate Lofton (the Harlem Globetrotters) to win the Race.
Last season’s two editions of THE AMAZING RACE averaged 11.19 million viewers, 3.4/09 in adults 18-49 and 4.4/10 in adults 25-54.
The 19th installment of THE AMAZING RACE will air this fall, Sundays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Season 20 is scheduled for broadcast in spring 2012.
Jerry Bruckheimer, Bertram van Munster, Jonathan Littman, Elise Doganieri and Mark Vertullo are the executive producers for Jerry Bruckheimer Television and Earthview Inc. in association with ABC Studios and Amazing Race Productions. THE AMAZING RACE was created by Bertram van Munster and Elise Doganieri.
