    Referring to The Amazing Race as a "weapon" shows how far it's finally come in public perception. Its fans have loved it since the beginning, but it's never really caught on with big ratings before. It's neat to hear them refer to it as a "potent" force in the CBS lineup.
    When you're ten years old and a car drives by and splashes a puddle of water all over you, it's hard to decide if you should go to school like that or try to go home and change and probably be late. So while he was trying to decide, I drove by and splashed him again. - Jack Handey

    To answer the question about ABC's "The Bachelor"...

    "Amazing Race 3" faced off against "Bachelor" for a couple months in the Fall of 2002. "Bachelor" was just entering its second season and would consistently beat "Race" in the ratings. Also, NBC's "West Wing" hadn't peaked yet either, leaving "Race" often in (a distant) third place for the time slot.

    "Race" currently airs at Tuesdays at 10 p.m., but we must remember that for the most part its competition was reruns (on NBC) and short-run documentary-style series (on ABC). This competition will pale in comparison with what it would face in the fall. Moving it to 9 p.m. would leave it out of the direct line of fire of two prominent series ("Law & Order: SVU" and "NYPD Blue").

    Lastly, Wednesday at 9 p.m. would be fine too. Both "Bachelor" and "West Wing" have seen better days, in fact it has been rumored that this could be "Wing's" final season. The competition that faced "Race 3" is considerably weaker than it was just two years ago. I believe that placing "Race" on either Tuesday or Wednesday at 9 p.m. would prove successful.
