That’s right Amazing Race fans, CBS has announced that we will get a 20th season of the hit series to air in spring of 2012. In their official press release they stated:
“CBS has ordered the 20th installment of the seven-time Emmy Award-winning reality series, THE AMAZING RACE, hosted by Phil Keoghan, for broadcast during the 2011-2012 season.
THE AMAZING RACE concluded its 18th installment, “Unfinished Business,” on May 8, 2011, which featured former fan favorites returning for a second shot at the one million dollar prize. During the season finale, sisters LaKisha Hoffman and Jennifer Hoffman narrowly ousted Herb Lang and Nate Lofton (the Harlem Globetrotters) to win the Race.
Last season’s two editions of THE AMAZING RACE averaged 11.19 million viewers, 3.4/09 in adults 18-49 and 4.4/10 in adults 25-54.
The 19th installment of THE AMAZING RACE will air this fall, Sundays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Season 20 is scheduled for broadcast in spring 2012.”
