Well lets hope TAR has the loyal followers that no matter what time slot they put it in that it will do well. It is a great show and if the fans will follow it CBS might just steal Saturday night in a huge way. If any show can do it I think TAR can, it may not have overwhelming numbers for viewers but I think it does have a very good solid loyal fan base. It just may prove to be a great decision by CBS. Can you think of a better producer to try to rectify Saturday evening from it's television woes than Bruckheimer.
And how can you not love having 2 more seasons of TAR basically guaranteed when we were concerned that we weren't going to get one.
Woohoo!!!!!!!!!!!! Go TAR :yay
and if AR does well on saturday...the 7th could follow in spring!!!
Sorry to double post
Turns out Summer AR5 isn't bumped
Amazing Race 6 site is already up!!!
wooooooow~we r gonna have two more seasons coming up in half yr. :crying
its not only dream come true,also comes great surprises :rolleyes
even thou the timeslot of tar6 sucks :phhht
anyway it keeps my hopes up and i 'll have the desire to turn on TV this fall after saying farewell to FRIENDS.thx gawd.
way to go TAR,Forza TAR, :yay the very best and my favor reality show :lovestruc
The Amazing Race is my favorite after Survivor, and I'll be taping it no matter what day and time it airs. I sure hope nothing happens to make CBS drop TAR; I'm still peeved that The Mole (NON- celebrity version) disappeared never to be seen again!
Just to let you guys know, I look at the ratings regularly, and Saturday night's ratings for all of the networks are pretty bad, but CBS usually won the night with Hack and The District, which were the only two new scripted shows on the night, but they're demo ratings, viewers aged 18-49, sucked. In the end, CBS did not think that these shows' ratings justified the cost of producing them. Therefore, they're looking for cheaper programming for the night. AR may be just the answer. If its ratings can equal or exceed Hack's numbers, which were usually in the 4.0 to 5.5 share range, both CBS and AR are winners because a reality show is a hell of alot cheaper to produce than a scripted series and reality shows typically have better demo numbers.
Only 850? But, that would mean that someone's great-great-great-...-great-grandchildren wouldn't be able to know the greatness that is TAR. We don't want that, now do we?Quote:

They don't need to start them quite as early as they did for TAR2, but would need to start them by early August.Quote:

Not too terribly worried about Saturday ratings. Of course, they will probably go down from where they've been. But, the summer slot last year was supposed to drop them way down, and it only barely budged them down from where they had been in their 3 regular seasons, and that was against Friends (re-runs or not, still powerful competition). With the momentum that TAR4 gained in its last half, and if TAR5 can hold or improve on that, Saturday shouldn't be the end of the world when the Fall rolls around. Sure, it's inconvenient for some viewers, but not for others. The demographics that are so prized are 18-49, or 18-35. Honestly, TAR probably appeals more to the upper ends of those "young" demos. Those are the people who can probably better appreciate the travel / world-experience of the show. And, honestly who has more money to spend on stuff, a 20 yr old, or a 35 yr old. On average, the 35 yr old does. So, just because the 20-somethings are out on Sat nights, a lot more of the 30- and 40-somethings are not necessarily. CBS wants lower demos, but not all 20 yr olds. I think advertisers are probably very pleased with the demos that TAR produces--they'd like more of them, of course, but not necessarily different demos.
TAR2 finished airing in May of 2002, so CBS may assume that's one too many TAR if they aired 3 in a row (although some of us may not agree with their point of view.) I'm guessing it might follow a schedule similar to Survivor's, with one airing in the fall, and the next one airing in the spring. If there's tough competition or ratings aren't that great there's always the possibility they'll hold off until the summer.Quote:

Saturday might not be such a bad night, and if TAR is nominated and wins the Emmy, maybe it will attract new viewers. Whatever happens, I'm just glad we're getting two new seasons right in a row.
CBS has announced (6/2) that TAR will move up an hour and now air at 8:00 p.m. on Saturdays. "Crimetime Saturday" (CSI reruns) will move to 9:00 and "48 Hours" will wrap up the night at 10:00.
Now, TAR will be operating without a lead-in, but will likely set the pace for the rest of the night.
