The Amazing Race 10 has been announced on the CBS Fall Schedule to air on Sunday nights at 8:00PM. This time slot is much more kid friendly than Tuesdays at 10:00PM. Hopefully this change will help the race improve its ratings by gaining back its youngest audience. Also according to the New York Times, the show “has been renewed for one more edition, and is in negotiations for more.”

I hope that one of those in negotiation is an All-Star edition of the Amazing Race. Eligibility to this All-Star version of the race should be determined by a minimum amount of first place finishes in the legs of the race. That way you invite back not only those that have won the race, but those that finished consistently in first place but didn’t win. I for one would love to see Rob & Amber battle it out with the Hippies and the Jocks of this last edition.

Another interesting twist for the dream All-Star edition would be to start the race with 15 teams and the bottom five get eliminated in a gargantuan two-hour premiere initial leg. Or maybe they could elimintate the bottom two teams for the first three episodes. Something like that would be really cool and would change things up a bit. I mean Survivor has exile island and Donald Trump sometimes fires three mofos at a time. So why can’t the race eliminate two or more at a time? That would be awesome!

In any case, the filming of the Amazing Race 10 starts next month and this will be my last Amazing Race entry until the Amazing Race 10 teams are announced in the early Fall. As always, I can hardly wait for the next race!

  1. Hmmmm…putting The Amazing Race opposite Extreme Makeover: Home Edition? It’s going to take something like an All-Star show to compete with Ty Pennington and the Design Team! Or maybe all the teams will have to be comprised of people who have overcome tremendous odds or do incredible things for humanity or have only a few months to live… I guess we’ll have to see how things turn out, I don’t think that time slot is big enough for the both of ’em!

  2. I have to admit I don’t know anything about Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, but I bet it doesn’t have bungee jumping, riding in helicopters, snorkeling, hang gliding, parachuting, and all the other cool stuff the Amazing Race does! I just don’t think the whole “turning crappy homes into pretty homes” theme of Extreme Makeover will be enough. We’ll see.
