The surprise Emmy win for The Amazing Race Sunday night couldn't have come at a better time for the show's executive producer Jerry Bruckheimer.
While Bruckheimer had begun preparations for a fifth installment of the globe-hopping competition, there had been no official renewal notification from CBS. Going into the weekend, the show's fate was very much up in the air.
But after the awards Sunday night, with the Emmy in hand for Outstanding Reality/Competition Program, Bruckheimer was telling associates that CBS had finally given him the greenlight for another season of The Amazing Race in 2004.
Not doing so would be hard for the network to justify, after The Amazing Race beat out presumptive favorites American Idol and Survivor in the first year of Emmy competition in the new reality category.
Though a critical favorite, The Amazing Race was not seen by many Emmy predictors as having a chance against Ruben, Clay and the castaways. But I guess that's why they call it a race. "
As Phil stands on the podium, "Ryan and Jeff, you are the last time team to arrive." BOOYA
