What would be the perfect TAR timeslot?
CBS has aired "The Amazing Race" in two timeslots, Wednesdays at 9:00PM and Thursdays at 8:00PM with a special premiere on Monday at 10:00PM hoping to get a boost from "Everybody Loves Raymond."
None have been able to propel TAR to blockbuster ratings status but the show has faced competition on both nights ("Bachelor" :rolleyes and "West Wing" on Wednesdays and "Friends" repeats :rolleyes on Thursdays).
So where do you think would be the perfect timeslot for "The Amazing Race 5" and future installments? (Regular season or Summer)
I think Wednesdays at 8:00PM would be perfect, there isn't any strong programming in that timeslot, "Ed" and ABC's comedies get middling ratings and anything CBS puts in that slot would certainly beat anything on UPN and The WB. The only worry would be the "American Idol" results show. Its been shown that people would much rather watch 25 girls fawn over one guy and vice versa over TAR (why?) and Thursdays at 8PM would be very difficult with the final season of "Friends."
