I was thrilled that Amazing Race was nominated along with Survivor and American Idol in the new reality-competition category. The class act of reality TV deserves the attention, and maybe this will convince CBS to stick with it for a fifth go-round. It's also a wise move by the Emmy show producers to decide to include this influential category in the prime-time telecast. What show had greater impact than Idol last season?
