The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

I don’t understand why CBS props up this dog. It frequently ranks 3rd in time slot and it’s viewership is artificially inflated due to them running it into the Amazing race time slot on a regular basis. This show is well past it’s best days. Especially since the Scandal involving Dan Rathers penchant for embellishing/inventing stories. Just goes to show you that Television executives have no clue what the rest of the world wants to see.
