Because Viva Laughlin has been pulled from the CBS schedule, Amazing
Race fans can look forward to watching the twelfth season sooner than
anticipated. The five-time Emmy Award-winning series will return to
CBS on Sunday, November 4 from 8:00PM to 9:00 PM ET/PT.
"If there ever was a season that I consider one of the best, it’s this one," said Bertram van Munster," executive producer, director and co-creator of THE AMAZING RACE. "It’s insanely funny, fast-paced and dramatic all at once. Teams are in hot pursuit of one another at every location and its reality television at its nail-biting best."
This season, teams will travel approximately 50,000 miles, covering five new countries including Ireland, Lithuania and Croatia. In its 11 previous editions, broadcast in several time periods, The Amazing Race has averaged more than 10 million viewers and a 4.1/10 in adults 18-49.
Jerry Bruckheimer, Bertram van Munster, Jonathan Littman and Hayma Screech Washington are the executive producers for Bruckheimer Television and Earthview Inc. in association with ABC Television Studio and Amazing Race Productions. The Amazing Race was created by Bertram van Munster and Elise Doganieri. Phil Keoghan hosts.
